Stayed hard sided and easy to maneuver

I used this on a 2 week trip to Europe, including train, plane and bus trips. I like how the bag remained hard sided after a trip abroad, the fact that it has a side and top handle for ease of carrying when necessary, the TSA lock embedded into the suitcase and the ease of rolling it through the airport. I would prefer the suitcase if it offered the option to expand it (via a second zip), but it only has the one zipper. The other disadvantage to a hard sided case is the you only have the space that is defined by the case - in other words, it doesn't expand when packed like a soft sided suitcase does. I also became a bit concerned when the zipper came apart after zipping it, but once I unzipped it and re-zipped it the zipper held. This may have been due to the fact that I had overfilled it. So, as I said, there is no room for expansion. Next time I will put a strap around the suitcase in the even that the zipper doesn't hold (I was a bit concerned that it may come apart while being transferred between flights).
As an aside, I used the Nomadz Compression packing cubes (ordered through Amazon), which allowed me to pack more clothes than just putting them in the suitcase rolled (I tried both ways). I recommend those cubes as it not only helped with packing, but it also allowed me to keep my clothes organized when taking them out of the suitcase.
