The biggest problem I have with this bag is that it has a design problem. The main zipper is installed the wrong way, and it feels very wrong. I am not very fan of this bag. Unfortunately I have to travel abroad and I don't have time to return it to buy another one. So I am stuck with it. I bought this bag for the name, American Tourister. I thought maybe the quality would be great. But it is not there. A little pressure would cause it to loose the shape. I WILL NOT RECOMMEND THIS PRODUCT.
I've only used this bag on one trip (via train, as a checked bag) so far but it's holding up fine. It has two big drawbacks though. First, the top *does* expand, but only halfway, creating a v-shaped wedge from the bottom to the top of the bag. (See photo.) Also, there's no handhold on the bottom of the bag to give you a grip when you're lifting it to lay flat. (See photo.) The hold-downs inside are not elastic, which means you can secure things tightly. (See photo.) There are two zippered outside pockets, but they extend the length of the bag which makes them impractical for storing smaller items such as tickets or a book since they'd slide down to the bottom of the bag. Compared to other American Tourister suitcases I think it's good quality for the price.
I super love the quality of this bag and could drag it anywhere without any hassle 💕 Value is more than enough for the price! 👌🏻
