I’ve found the bag wonderfully diverse for handling different trips (suiter for S. America & Caribbean), extra shoes for Ireland and weekend, and I LOVE the 3-3-1 pocket. While I’m TSA Pre-check in the US and don’t need to pull those out, its great for international security and just a convenient location to store these with just a little more spillage protection as well.
The bag is by far the quietest and smoothest in the airport, extremely impressed by the wheels. I’m not the heaviest traveler (~145 days/year) but am on the road enough that I’m quite picky about my luggage. I couldn’t be happier with my purchase. Well designed for the heavy traveller indeed.
