Rated 5 out of 5 by Tritium4life Tough Luggage
Its well made, tough and has a lifetime warranty, what else can I say. I looked around at other luggage and settled on this piece because it looks like it will last a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by NonnaRoma roomy carry-on
I purchased this medium bag after my hard-sided luggage wore out.
I like the two-sided compartments with mesh enclosure with a garment bag and the three outside pockets, including one plastic lined for liquids; easily retrievable if necessary for the TSA. The other two pockets hold my tablet and computer. I used the bag for a long weekend in Philly and in Paris for 11 days using only this bag. It fit in the overhead compartment without a problem. The zipper does not always operate smoothly, my only negative comment.

Rated 2 out of 5 by BeanShopper51 Bad Zipper
I am now having to exchange this Rolling Pullman for the 2nd time, due to zipper breaking. Hopefully this is a better model than the Rolling Pullman from the prior two purchases. Each time, the suitcase has lasted about 3 years before the zipper to main compartment gave out. I will say, however, that LL Bean's exchange and replacement policy is easy and user friendly, so I will keep trying and buying from them. Other than the bad zipper issue, I still like the bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ApricotAlma Roomy Carry-on Traveling Companion
This is my second Sportsman carry-on bag. The wheels on the first one gave out after years of use but L.L Bean credited me with monies spent on the first one and I updated to this new model. It is very roomy, not too heavy for a 5'1" female to hoist into the overhead, and a worldwide traveler. It carried everything I needed for a two week trip to Hawaii and Palau - my mask, fins, snorkel, Polartec skin and vest, and wrist computer along with clothing, an extra pair of shoes, hot iron - I think you get the picture - it is a workhorse and not too heavy. The wheels seem to be of better quality so I expect to have this bag for a long time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by AcadiaLover23 Excellent Carry-On Bag
I recently used this bag to travel by plane. I wanted to do "carry-on" and was concerned about the accepted size for "carry-on" by Spirit Airlines. This bag fits the guidelines perfectly. I was happy with the compartments on the front. They allowed for easy access to items such as the quart-sized plastic bag of liquids. I also liked the 2 inside compartments, each secured by a zippered mesh netting. I was able to unzip the expandable portion on the outside to allow for a little more room inside. The long expandable handle made me comfortable running through the terminal while trailing the bag behind me. The wheels worked smoothly. I also like the sporty design and color.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Closs Nice Bag - too small for my needs
Got this carry on which is very nice. Good quality materials, etc. However, it was smaller than I needed - my fault! If you need a carry on that meets airline standards, this is a good choice.

Rated 3 out of 5 by VTEagle Nice bag but don't like the set-up inside
It is a very nice looking bag and love it with the monogram...nice construction. I am sure the bag will last for a long time. The only thing i am disappointed with is how the set-up inside. It is separated into two sections with a mesh zipper to hold your items in on the top and bottom. When I put my luggage on a luggage cart the items in top compartment fall out. I would much rather have a large compartment on the bottom to pack my items than divided like this bag is designed. I wish there were pictures on the inside so i could have seen how this was set-up before i bought it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Clucker Exceptional carry-on
I have used this suitcase on four different trips and it has worked superbly for me. Excellent room within the top and bottom compartments and I love the zippered netting that secures each compartment. It rolls like a dream and easily fits in the overhead, even the most stingy ones in the 757's. It is the best suitcase I have owned.

Rated 1 out of 5 by jimmyinms very dissatisfied with expandable rolling pullman
I've used LL Bean luggage products exclusively for travel since the mid 1990s. Always impressed with quality and durability. I bought the expandable rolling pullman to replace a very similar LL Bean bag that has been discontinued. Upon receiving it, I strongly believe LL Bean has taken a step back in terms of quality. The "new" pullman has less rigid sides, a zipper of less quality and looks and feels like what you'd expect for a pull behind costing half the price. The internal garment bag is smaller than the one in the previous rolling pullman I owned, and in trying to pack my business suit, I found it simply does not fit well. This is simply not the LL Bean quality I've come to expect. This is one time I am thankful for the LLB 100% satisfaction guarantee.
