Our highest-scoring case on test almost ticked all the boxes. The only let-down was non-compliance with Jetstar bag regulations. This bag was excellent in our lift and drop test, had very good puncture resistance (as good as soft cases get), and good rain resistance. It was very easy to pull, push and carry, with excellent stability. It came with every feature you’d want: internal and external pockets, a side handle and a built-in TSA-certified combination lock. It’s a bit pricey though.
Our overall assessment comprises 50% performance (lift/drop, puncture and rain testing) and 50% ease of use.

Fine if you’re only going to wheel bag around airport and hotel lobby.
NOT if you’re a Walker
Why do samsonite make these great bags then put cheap plastic wheels on them?
72 hrs first model - Perfect Carry-on bag I bought TWO of them ( not cheap).
BUT the wheels were cheap so after a few trips the wheels wore bare and I had to replaced the whole mechanism.
I see for this new model they changed to double wheels but they are still plastic and not rubber.
Maybe, it depends on what you're after.
