Rated 5 out of 5áby GuardianAngel Sister "borrowed" it...
Thought I'd be nice and let my sister use mine. She put her mummy sleeping bag in it, along with 3 changes of clothes. It went from San Diego to Salt Lake Utah. Where upon my borther in law has used it for several trips to Washington. I'm waiting for my new one, since they are sending me another. My loving family won't give "their's" back to me!!

Rated 4 out of 5áby cjmac46 A trick handle
I saw several reviews that said the handle collapsed on its own with the smallest amount of pressure -- truly annoying. I have found there is a trick to avoid this. Most luggage of this type, you punch the retracted handle to release it and then pull it up. After punching this suitcase's handle, keep the button depressed until it extends all the way, then release it. Doing it this way locks it as well as extending it all the way. Doesn't extend all the way if you just pull - goes part way up. Longer handle is also easier to pull. (And, I'm a short person, 5'3") Give it a try those of you who have trouble with a self collapsing handle.
Also, I bought the small matching bag and put it on top of the rolling bag. The top of the rolling bag slopes forward, shifting the weight of the small bag, making both bags fall onto its face. Once again, truly annoying. Had to prop the front onto something to keep it from falling when I wasn't pulling it. Again, found a solution: Used a luggage strap to connect the two pieces with the small bag setting on the floor when rolling bag is upright and stationary. Tipped back just fine when rolling, bringing the small bag off the floor and leaning against the larger bag to travel/walk. Hope this all helps and hope LL Bean reads reviews. Need to work on design of handle (it seems very cheaply made) and create a better level platform for additional bags that top the rolling one. Love the other design features like the size and all the pockets.

Rated 5 out of 5áby TravelingNovelist Just the ticket!
I like to travel light, and haven't checked luggage in years. So far this bag and I have been to New York City (4 days), San Francisco (5 days), Ireland (11 days), and Tucson (7 days). I agree with others that a fully opening main compartment would be a nice upgrade, but since I pack items in compression bags, I'm okay with the current design.
If you see me wearing a black LLBean Fitness Dress, smiling as I zip through the airport pulling this little bag, be sure to wave. :)

Rated 5 out of 5áby Scorpiani reliable!
I use this case for my camera gear when I travel. The wheels are steady, the fabric is durable and the overall pocket design makes for easy access to my gear and accessories. I flew across country with it and it fit perfectly under the seat in front of me. It is a great purchase, worth every penny!

Rated 4 out of 5áby Annie56 Underseat Bag
I wish the top zipper compartment didn't have wings inside. It would be far more utilitarian if the whole flap could lie flat when unzipped.

Rated 4 out of 5áby valleygran Perfect for me!
Fits under the middle and aisle seat (take water bottle out of side pocket) of an American 757 B. Long airport walks with my wonderful many zippered bag were too much for my tired shoulder. This rolling case has room for all my carry-ons (neck pillow, makeup, jewelry, pills, book, tablet, phone, etc) with room to spare. Put in my down coat (packs into a pocket), hat and gloves. No problem. Would give it 5 stars except the handle still retracts too easily.

Rated 3 out of 5áby coney330 Carryall Bag
This is a great item for traveling, but the only thing is the handle.
It is poorly made. It does not latch in properly. If they could fix the handle I would highly recommend it.

Rated 1 out of 5áby Traveller4 Poor Quality Wheels
In less than a year, one of the wheels developed a flat section, which means it won't roll smoothly anymore. The rubber/plastic is not very strong.

Rated 5 out of 5áby beilttog This bag is sooooo light
Bought it just prior to a trip abroad. I packed 2 days worth of clothing including shoes, cosmetics, drugs, books and a Scrabble game, and still had room for more. One side pocket will hold a water bottle or umbrella and there is room for a newspaper in the other. There are 2 outside front pockets that are easily accessible.
The handle is long enough to place another bag on top of this one.
It will fit under an airline seat or easily in one of the top bins.
Great value for the price.

I haven't actually used this yet. My trip will be in a couple of weeks. I do like the way this bag is made. It seems sturdy and rolls easily. I'm looking forward to being able to use this and keeping my heavy tote, (not from LLBean), at home.
