Designed by a 747 captain and beloved by professional pilots, TravelPro luggage is renowned for its durability and functionality. Loaded with travel-friendly features, these bags will withstand years of abuse from frequent travelers and pilots. High-impact, sealed ball-bearing inline wheels ensure flawless performance and a protective crash-guard wheel housing provide extra durability.

For those requiring a more compact Rollaboard, the 18” Expandable Bag offers impressive organization in a shorter bag. The same width and depth as standard 22” Rollaboard bags, this bag still has plenty of space. Great for short trips, or flights where the crew cabinets are smaller.

Excellent Rollaboard
I have searched long and hard for a carryon suitcase that meets my needs. All prior suitcases came up short, including other TravelPro's. However, this suitcase meets all my needs. It is durable, roomy (for its size), has resourceful and useful compartments, and it just works. Future purchasers will not be disappointed with this purchase. If there is any knock on this suitcase, it is the fact that it is not a spinner. However, the inclusion or lack thereof of that feature is subjective

Well Constructed Luggage
It’s very high quality but it is too thick depth to fit in a CRJ overhead bin which was my purpose and need.

real outside dimensions of this well built case
Outside dimensions are including wheels and handles from a solid surface:
19.7" x 15 x 10
The 10" could possibly be squeezed to 9.5" but only if the bag is lightly loaded or empty. It is the wheels and bumpers add the extra 1" to give you the 10" and in the other direction you end up with 1.5" as the wheels add 1.0" and handle is 0.5" to give you the 19.7".
When expanded you get at least another 2" to give you 12".
Bag is heavy built, could be used as a dog-sled and it probably would not break. All but one external zipper are massively overbuilt, and the one small zipper is for the expansion so there really isn't a big strain on it.
Zippers have nice large holes for locks (for a zipper).
Handle does wibble wobble a bit but not as bad as most other brands, it works in a confident way, and to be fair I have never come across a telescopic handle that has absolutely no play.
The unit is built like a tank but there is a weight payoff, it will certainly keep your stuff safe. It is a dilemma I have come across with luggage, sturdy, well built, long lasting vs lightweight and disposable.
Excellent bag price. I used the slightly more expensive international shipping provided which meant no hidden extra costs to Canada, which was nice to know what I was in for...but still a little expensive for international shipping.

Top Drawer bag
This bag is absolutely “top drawer”. Size is perfect for overhead bins on acft. Looks great, extremely well built, nice pocket arrangement with class heavy duty zippers. Main compartment is great size; roller handle well built and sturdy. I bought 2, for my bride and myself. It was a superb choice on bags. I would highly recommend this bag for anyone looking for a high quality bag of this size.

A solid rollerbag. And not too large!
Among the best features of this bag are its multitude of compartments to store many smaller items and have quick access to them. The bag is also well-balanced and competitively priced. Two huge pluses include it is small enough to fit into either domestic or international carry-on bins--many slightly larger bags work domestically, but not internationally. Second, its central compartment's zipper expansion is ideal for bringing home more than you took. Since I just purchased it, durability for the long-term is unknown, but it seems solid. I did spray the bag with 3M Scotchguard like every rollerboard bag I've owned. It keeps the bags looking great for a decade or more.

Will this fit in the overhead of a CRJ-200?
A shopper on Jul 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: No. It is about 10.5 inches in depth without anything in the outer pockets. It won't lay down in the overhead bin of the CRJ200.
How much weight will it reliably hold before sagging occurs between the wheels?
Matt M on Jan 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have 50lbs and nothing so I’m assuming over 100lbs
As a Flight attendant looking for smaller rollerboard than my 22 inch for 2 day trios. Ordered 16 inch regional but it is too small. I need something that will suppirt my larger tote. Will this work?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I think this would be perfect for two day trips, especially if you have a larger tote bag to put other stuff in. I'm not the heaviest packer, but I easily can pack for four day trips domestic + international with this (I carry my Dopp kit in my other tote bag though). It also fits in just about every overhead bin wheels first (aside from RJs). It's a great little bag, I've used it for years!
Would this hold clothes for a week away?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It depends on how do you fold your clothes. If you fold like a military style (rolling) and carry only necessary items it would be possible. I have another flight crew bag (22") and it holds clothes for 3 weeks easily.
How large a laptop will fit?
Dale C on Jun 26, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It should hold the largest laptop in the main compartment.
What’s the interior dimension?
A shopper on Jan 30, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The interior dimensions are 16.75 in tall x 13.50 in wide by 8.25 in deep.
Are you counting the wheels when you say the baggage is 18 inches high?
kathleen m on Mar 31, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes it is the overall length.
Would this support my travelpro multi purpose tote?
