22" Expandable Upright
Perfect for travelling, plenty of space and cute!
I got this suitcase last year to make traveling a little easier...before this I used to use duffel bags, and let's just say the upgrade was definitely worth it. I was really impressed by the quality of the piece...the zippers are incredibly smooth, the entire thing is very sturdy, and the material is pretty strong, and rather resilient - it's held up well to weather, mud, and cat hair thus far. I was also impressed by how much it held - I was able to pack two weeks worth of (summer) clothing in here easily between all the pockets, and that was along with a pair of cowgirl boots, a full sized hairdryer, and a cosmetics bag (mind you I either pack very carefully or more lightly than the average female, so take it as you will). And the multitude of pockets make it really easy to keep everything separated and properly sorted. I always end up checking this when I fly since my computer bag ends up being my carry-on, so I can't confirm it's ability to be used as a carry on, but in the bright Mocha Rogue pattern, it's really easy to spot in baggage claim, which is also a plus.
My only complaints thus far are that the lock that it came with doesn't work very well (unlike the bag, that seems to be of rather poor quality) and the suitcase gets front heavy pretty easily if you put a lot of things in the front two pockets, which can make it want to fall over forwards. It honestly doesn't bother me that much since I don't just stand around next to my bag, I have a hold of the handle until it gets to wherever it's supposed to be, but it's definitely something to keep in mind if it would bother you.
Overall I would definitely recommend this product to anyone looking for luggage in this particular size.

I brought this as my carry-on bag to France this summer along with the Weekender, and was able to fit all I needed for 17 days (with very careful packing). It was functional and beautiful--the only problem I had was when we had to bring it through a gravel parking lot, and the bottom of one edge frayed a bit. It does need careful handling, but it's worth it!

Great Travel bag
Easily recognizable if you have to check it. Has tons of pockets. is also expandable. The first piece of luggage that ever caught my eye in a really big way!
