Comments about International Expandable 2 Wheeled Slim Carry-On:
I really wanted 22021 Continental. It's a little bigger and perfect...except... Look at the enhanced view and rotate to the rear. The handle fits in a slot. When you push the release, it doesn't spring out. If it's in a slot, it should spring out.
This one has an open slot (again, enhanced view and rotate to see what I'm talking about) so you could grab the handle... AND it springs out AND it's a longer, 3-piece handle.
Because of the open slot design on this bag, spring-out isn't really needed but it doesn't hurt anything. The spring-out feature is vital for the slot type bags...and it's not there. Who designed that thing? It's one of Tumi's most popular bags and has this glaring flaw. I could never be happy with a bag like that.
I'll put up with a little less space. This will fit in any overhead though it's smaller than my old T.P. Crew 4. Love my Tumi laptop bag and wanted a match.
