Strengths: Lots of compartments and BIG Zippers.
Weaknesses: Side handle too close to seam. Concentrated load at the weakest point on the seam
We bought 2 of these for international travel. After 1 use the seam next to the side handle ripped open in the same place on both bags. They were loaded with 26 Kilos each. Too bad. I Liked the design. and the size... Perhaps if they were LIGHTLY loaded...
