Took it to Mexico. It's sturdy, well designed, etc. But the real secret sauce on this bag is in the airlines new (total BS) 50lb bag limit. My bag weighed in at a hefty 85lb, the lady said "oh I'm sorry we'll have to charge you extra", and I said "wait a second" unzip, bang! Now I have two bags under the weight limit. Three people standing in line asked me where I got that bag.
The one issue that we have is that it makes noise on our Volvo Cross Country XP when there's nothing on it and we're driving above ~60mph.
Holds a ton but can compress down if you've got lessthat means less noise and better gas mileage.
We had to trim the straps (which come very long) because they were flapping.
We use it for family trips (2 adults, 2 children), the children can pack it like a suitcase on the bed and we load it on the car, then drag the whole bag to the cabin. This works a little better than I think a hard case would, where we'd be packing and unpacking more often.
