I purchased this piece of luggage to take with me on a five week trip to Peru. Unfortunately, it was not allowed as a carry on and had to be checked for all flights. Regardless, it's durable and can fit quite a bit. After several long walks with this item (thanks Miami for the hour long adventure tugging this and two other bags along) it held up the way I would hope any bag would. Even with having another heavy bag resting on top of it, I have no complaints.
PS. LOVE the print! Sierra got a lot of compliments =)
