Rated 5 out of 5 by matahari loyal old friend
Ive been using the same green sportsman pullman for at least ten years...at least 20 times to Europe in that period and about 30 times cross country. Winter or summer, it manages to hold everything I need and I can always pick it out among the many black suitcases in the luggage section. I'm amazed at its staying power...despite all this travel, it looks great and continues to work perfectly...the many zippers zip...the wheels keep rolling. Terrific product.

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.

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.
