Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent product Delivered on time, sound packaging, well-made product suitable for many airlines' cabin requirements, made in sturdy materials. Love the 'tobacco' colour, makes it stand out from an ocean of black cases. Internals give me what I need - simplicity and function. Adjustable heights on towing handle will be perfect. What's not to like?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect size Got this 2 weeks ago and have taken it on an intl trip and a domestic flights, and am very pleased. I spent weeks researching carryons that would meet the EU budget airline space requirements, be light enough in case i needed to toss my laptop in, and be expandable for trips where larger carryons are OK e.g. US domestic flights. This thing was the optimal choice, and I'm so far very pleased. The color is great and the front pockets are convenient for capturing assorted bits and bobs from ones pockets while passing security.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great carry-on case we bought 2 of these for a recent trip to Spain so that we didn't have to check-in luggage. Very pleased with these, large enough to take what we needed, easy to use with the extending handle & wheels. They appear to be well made.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good case I found this suitcase to be very useful for putting things in when going away. It meant that I no longer had to carry all of my stuff in my hands, or wear all of my clothes at once. Genius.

At the first use I realised that as soon as I fill the suitcase with a normal load, it hardly stands upright, and tends to fall onto its side. When I expand it it's even worse, no way to make it stand upright. Is this "normal" or is my suitcase faulty?

the photos for the Dynamo 55cm cabin upright show a double-tubed wheel handle, yet the text says it is a mono tube. Which is it please?

Asked by: somersetcharliedontsurf
Hi Charliesurf, Thank you for pointing this out to us. I can confirm that the Dynamo Upright 55cm exp does have a double-tubed wheel handle. I can see that the description does state that it has a monotube handle. However, this will now be rectified. I hope this helps. Regards, Jyoti
