[This guest post is courtesy of one of my long time readers, Stella. She does her shopping at a couple different Costco locations around Kansas City. This is her second guest post! She spends a lot of time traveling for business, so she’s been able to give this piece of luggage a full trial period.]
I bought this new suitcase, the International Traveller Split-Case Rolling Duffel, at Costco around the middle of February. Since then I’ve used it on a few business trips and I love it! The canvas is a black and blue steel two-tone color scheme. And this bag looks indestructible, even for the frequent traveler who stuffs her bag. It is made well and it can be stuffed with lots of extra shoes, suits and purses, not to mention business binders and stuff that you buy while traveling.
It is HUGE and accomodates alot of packing. I love the fact that you can put shoes and similar items on the bottom and put your clothes in the “duffle-bag” portion. My FAVORITE part is that the bottom zips from the outside and you can put your used or soiled garments in its own pouch. I love this! I always have a couple of bags from the hotels that hold these items and this is like a secret compartment. I just thought it was a unique and thoughtful idea to include in a suitcase.
Then, and this is goofy for a girl, but I love the wheels, they are like little chrome “spinners”! They just add something for the guy traveler, I think. Finally, the only negative remark, is that there are so many compartments, it can take me several attempts to find the area I am looking for. This is annoying if I’m in a hurry. Otherwise, this is probably one of my best buys at Costco and many friends already want one based on mine. And the price is just $39.99, which is really a steal for what a good bag this is.
