At 1.8 kg this is as lightweight and well constructed as a carryon gets. In the past 2 years airlines have started weighing carry-ons limiting them to 7.5kg. Case tare weight has become a priority. I gained an extra 20% payload by switching from my 4yr old samsonite which had a failed zipper (and id repaired the extending handle twice after samsonite couldnt fix it). Other features of the bag are as good as any and it comes with a ten year warranty. (Hint; tuck the receipt in the bag lining, so you wont lose it) At NZD139 this stands out, a very good product at a competitive price.
Cant think of any. Its just done 7 international flights and hasn't missed a beat. Im very happy with it. Ill update the report in 10 years time if you like.
Consumer don't list one of the key considerations in selecting a bag, its tare weight. Perhaps Consumer might quickly update the test reports and add this key quantifiable feature to all the test report headings on the website.
Yes, I recommend this product.
