It's also equipped with a bottom grab handle that makes it easy to put into an overhead compartment with wheels facing out. The one complaint I have is that the soft grab handles on top and side are fitted very tightly to the bag, to keep the size down, but this makes it a little difficult to slip my fingers into the handles.
I have been eyeing a SwissGear roller so itís good to have your opinion on it - thanks very much! Iím now contemplating wheelless weekender/satchel bags as theyíre lighter and cheaper and all of the dimensions should be usable, as opposed to not counting handles and wheels. Just worried I wonít be able to handle it when itís full. I have costumes and makeup that I need to ensure make it so I prefer to carry them on, in addition to medicine, electronics, etc.
