Does anyone have experience with Tutto carryons? They are on sale at fab.com today and seem very cool. they are rollerboards that are structured horizontally rather than vertically. When not in use, they collapse flat. I only found one post on FT from a few years ago about them so I'm wondering if they're any good. They seem a bit heavy at 7 lbs?
Here is the sale page. I don't think the link has a referral code, but I'm not certain how that works:

Well, I ordered it even though I didn't get a response here. I checked a few other sites and people seemed very pleased with the bag. I'll post back on my experience with it.

I have had a couple of the regulation carry on bags for several years. The ones I had are made with ballistic nylon. Not sure about the current models. The bags are great. The have head up remarkably well over the years and have travelled extensively - sometimes more than me! The bag hold a tremendous amount for its size. It fits in all overheads except for CRJs. On one bag a wheel needed to be replaced and it had to be sent back. The replacement was done quickly and in expensively. Now they offer a DIY kit for the wheels. The other bag had to be sent back to have a zipper replaced on an outer pocket as it was broken when it had to be hate checked on one occasion. Again fairly quick replacement for minimal price. The folks at Tutto can be hard to get a response from, however. You need to be persistent, even when ordering. Good luck if you choose to go that route.

Thank you so much, raberg, for that information. Sounds like it's a decent bag. I thought it was a good price so I bit. I don't do as much traveling as many on FT so hopefully the bag will hold up. I read that the wheels have been made larger so that may help.
