Advantages: Small and lightweight
Disadvantages: Only two wheels and not four
I recently went to New York for five glorious days to celebrate my 24th birthday. I knew I didn't want to take my large suitcase as I was only going few days and would be staying in a hostel. With that in mind I bought a smaller suitcase for the purpose of this trip.
The suitcase itself has one main compartment where you store your clothes. I managed to get it to hold two pairs of trousers, five tops, underwear and other smaller things such as gifts that I was bringing back.
The suitcase was handy as it was easy to carry it down to London, I didn't have to battle with a big suitcase through Victoria and I could easily carry it on either two handles that are provided on the top and on the side as my clothes didn't add a great deal of weight to it.
This suitcase like most modern day suitcases are now on wheels and the handle to pull the suitcase with has two different stages it pulls out at before it's at its full length. I found that the length provided was right for my height and I wasn't having to bend down to compensate for the lack of length that can be found with some suitcases.
This suitcase also fits with airline policy if you would like to use it as carry-on luggage rather than just your main bag. The zips can also be fitted together so that a small padlock can be fitted but I wouldn't add this before putting it through airport security as they'll only break it open.
The cost of this suitcase is fairly reasonable as I only paid around £25 for it at a local luggage store. I'm not sure how widely available this piece of luggage is but you can find a number of other similar suitcases that I'm sure are of similar quality.
NOTE: There are only two wheels on this suitcase so you can either only pull it at an angle or carry it via it's handles. If you're looking for something you can walk alongside you then it will probably be better to invest in a four wheel suitcase as these are a little easier for crowded places such as the London underground.
Over all I'm very happy with this suitcase, it fitted easily under my bunk bed at the hostel and the extra pockets provided space for gifts that I wanted to bring back. It was also less of a hassle to take from Leeds to London and for that aspect alone I would use it again for a short trip away.
Summary: Great little suitcase for a short trip
