Samsonite world

Recently, i've traveled to several places and stayed only 2 to 4 days. i prefer traveling light and hate carrying around large pieces of luggage. That's when i decided to buy something small that i can take onto the cabin without checking in. my Swiss Army "Werks" suitcase has traveled around the world with me, but it's too big for short trips. I checked out Samsonite, Delsey, Swiss Army etc... for cabin bags and finally decided on the Samsonite Spark expandable. it's not too pricey and has a pretty durable look. i thought the build of the slightly more expensive Swiss Army was better, but the interior space was smaller. The Spark also had an expandable feature which gives me more flexibility (for shopping). i took it to australia this week and lived out of the little suitcase for 4 days. for the first time, i decided to check it in and avoid bringing it on board, but that proved to be bad news. first of all, Samsonite is used by everyone... seems like a black Samsonite is the john doe of suitcases... luckily, my bag was not confused with other identical bags. secondly, the rubbery part on the back is the archilles heal of the suitcase. it's the only spot that is not line by the ballistic nylon and it was the spot that tore. it's not a large tear but obviously can not handle more attacks of similiar nature. otherwise, i suppose it's not a bad bag, functional, looks decent, doesn't stand out for thieves to target and reliable. we'll see how it stands in 5 years.... to be continued.
