I actually purchased this piece along with the Expedition and the Jaunt. The custom color aspect is ingenious and makes me happy each time I see our luggage rolling along the baggage conveyor belt. It is distinctive, sturdy, easily maneuvered and well sized. My bags have bounced around both domestically and internationally and they hold up to the abuse, clean up well. I have the black and red with tan accents. I was smitten at the start of this company. One piece I bought then, had a zipper issue. When I notified them about that issue, the lifetime guarantee was put into immediate action. I have NEVER witnessed better customer service for any product…ever! If you want to invest in quality, design, and service- this company is the best. I recommend to all my traveling pals.
