To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Don't let the light weight fool you; these are plenty sturdy. Also, I pushed the zippers a bit and they held up great! I will say that once they were very full and very heavy, they were a little harder to maneuver than I thought they would be. Really had to push them pretty hard at a certain angle to keep them going where I wanted them to. That said, the wheels are sturdy. I also really like the look of these; slightly distinguished by the pattern from all of the other, many black suitcases. I only extended the handle to the first/lowest level and they both (I got 2) felt sturdy. When I first got them and they were empty, I extended the handles fully and they did wiggle a bit like loose teeth, lol. What I needed was work horses and they have come through brilliantly. Nothing I packed was damaged and the suitcases are still in great condition after their inaugural flight.
