This luggage wonder went cabin to and check in from Nice, France! Upset that with check in upon retrieval there were scratches and other marks (first time using it). However, The Frame Carry-On accommodated all I had and then some. I tried to load the same into another German competitor’s carry-on, a bit smaller piece, but it just didn’t cut it. There was no way I could travel for 10 days in anything smaller than The Frame! On my sister Carla’s recommendation I purchased The Frame over 2 other brands. Glad I did. Thank you!
It is an excellent suitcase! I use it as my carry on all the time, because it fits nicely & it is light. I’ve had no problems with any of the airlines. I bought 2, and they have both been to 20 plus countries, and are holding up as when I first got them.
The bag rolls wonderfully. Very lightweight and easy to carry on. I did 2 weeks abroad with just my laptop backpack and this bag. The only complaint I have is I had to take a small airplane where all rolling bags needed to go in the cargo area and when I got it back there were a lot of deep scratches and more superficial ones so it didn’t seem overly durable. I now take my tumi on small planes when I know it will not fit in the overhead compartments to protect the bag better.
I love the bag and the design! I purchased the poly carbonate champagne carry on.
I have been eyeing this bag for sometime and decided to finally invest. I have been traveling with Tumi for over 15 years and wanted to try something new. I am on a flight 30-40 weeks out of the year and many times times, flying to multiple cities a week. First thing ,i love is the wheels. I feel like my last bag was so hard to push despite having 4 wheels. It’s noticeably easier to push and so quiet. My arms don’t get a work out when i push my bag through the airport.
The only issue is this does not have a side handle. It’s so nice to have a side handle when you are constantly lifting the bag up on parking shuttle racks to hotel shuttles to the back of multiple rental car trunks. The bag is slippery so it’s nice to have another grip.
The design looks great but the convenience of having the extra handle should be added. I’ve been looking at all the luggage’s while I’m at the airport now and all of them have the side handle.
I was told they did that to optimize the weight but the small amount of weight the handle will add
to the bag would be insignificant but add so much more ease to the people traveling for work.
I have 2 more trips next week during my trial periods. Let’s see if i can get used to this new bag !
My "carry on" has moved to the top of my luggage lineup displacing my Tumi. Here's why:
1. Wheels are smooth and zero noise
2. Holds more stuff
3. Looks sexy
4. Built-in "fast charger"
5. Makes you feel like a "boss"
