22" Rolling Duffel
Very cute and durable piece of luggage
I have traveled several times with this piece of luggage. I actually bought this piece because it was $80 cheaper than the 22' inch spinner. I used this as my carry on and it worked perfectly. I have used it on several international flights and luggage still looks new. It will tip over if you stand it up with the handle upright, but that's why it's also made as a duffel. While waiting, I sat it down as a duffel and it's light enough to carry as a duffel if needed too. It's roomy and there are several pockets inside to organize. I was able to pack two days of clothing, a pair of tennis shoes, flip flops, small jacket and a few other items in there as well. It's small enough to use even as a simple weekend bag as well.

Maybe better suited for car trips than airplanes
Bought this to use as an airplane carryon. Agree with other reviews in that it easily topples over when upright and handle extended. Difficult to maneuver through airplane aisle. Because it easily topples over, I ended up carrying it more with the handles than truly pulling on wheels (at which point I wished it had a shoulder strap!).
Might be better used as weekend duffle/car trips with the option of using the wheels but doesn't function as well as other upright carry on bags that need to be wheeled (and upright) from ticket counter, through security, down to gate and unto plane.
One positive - durable material definitely gave the duffle more structure than the fabric duffles.

I received this as a gift and was excited to be able to use it as my carry-on. My husband told me it was the way I packed the bag causing it to tip and twist easily. The second time I used it I took care in how I packed the bag. The same thing happened. I will NOT be taking this on any airplanes in the future. I love all the VB products I have until this point. Terribly disappointed the company did not make this just two inches wider for the wheel base!
