    1. Good for the first few trips.

      Let me start by saying I loved this bag! I travel a LOT and the concept behind coming home with more than you left home with is a Reality and this bag is designed for this. The function and ease of Use are fantastic ... but and its a big one... it doesn't last? I had two significant issues on about my 5th or 6th time I checked the bag at the airport. Both the plastic clips that attach the bag to the frame started to break ... and the zippers which are exposed and seem to protrude from the bad are getting 'worn' or chewed up by the travel and constant rubbing they receive as checked bags. The zipper is now so impacted it is very hard to close or open, and 3 of the 6 plastic clips are broken. Because of this I "retired" this bag after only 2 months and 5 or so trip by aircraft. If primary use is Car I think you will be fine for a much longer period of time, but it doesn't stand up to life in the belly of an airplane. too bad .. I really LOVE the concept! on Jul 29th 2016

    2. Customer Review

      Excellent design, high quality materials, well constructed. This frame is easy to use and to the point. My only complaint is that the frame will not stand vertical on its own when there is not a bag attached to it. But a 5 star product non the less! on Jan 2nd 2014

      burly, burly, burly. this thing is build like a tank. i paired my with the ascender trunk and that thing was packed with about 50lbs worth of clothes and personal items. the chassis made it feather light and easy to move around. the wheels are what you would find on some high end scooters or roller blades. the wheel are soft plastic/ rubber with SEALED bearings. this means that water, dirt and what not will stay out of the bearings and roll smoothly. the frame itself is solid. aluminum all the way but its thick so don't be scared to bash this thing around. i traveled on a military flight where the bag handlers were junior guys who were guys that really didn't want to be there so the bags weren't treated so gently. both the frame and the trunk held up threw the abuse. on Dec 24th 2013
