Now I’m Worried

  • By LouC547 from VIENNA, VA on Wednesday, April 03, 2019
  • Pros: Sturdy frame
  • Cons: Poor warranty and wheels
  • Review: I purchased this in Jan 2018. I’m an airline pilot so the bag does get a lot of use. I’m happy with the bag except one of the wheel bearings just failed. I brought it to a repair station where I found out the 3-yr warranty does not cover the wheels. Therefore I’m dubious that this bag will last and I’m upset that an obvious material failure isn’t covered by their warranty. Lesson learned...

Did NOT meet expectations

  • By on Monday, February 25, 2019
  • Pros: - Solidly built
  • Cons:
  • Review: The Traveler FlightCrew5 22" Expandable Pilot Rollaboard appears mostly durable. However, the first time I tried to get the bag into an MD-80 overhead the Travelpro logo popped off.
    The bag seems to be built solidly to a fault. The frame is so ruggedly designed that the bag loses available room internally. What I am able to fit into a Samsonite 22" bag, which I have used for the past 3 years, doesn't all fit into this bag. This bag has zero-sum space in that in order to use one of the front pockets it takes space away from a different front pocket. I saw an earlier design that didn't seem to have this issue. When using one pocket, it expanded away from the other pocket so both could be used independently. With that problem the bag still bulged after packing for only a 4-day trip in a way that made it extremely difficult to get into an overhead bin. Additionally, the side pockets are very limited and almost useless to hold any item that I normally carry.
    Based on all of these limitations this bag has become a $169 bag only large enough to carry enough for a 2-day trip, but durable enough to carry much more. I do not recommend this bag for normal use.

Travel pro flight crew 5 22”

  • By Henry from Dublin OH USA on Friday, November 15, 2019
  • Review: I like to put my “dirty” clothes in a separate pocket, away from my “clean “ clothes. Recommend the larger, outer pocket be able to zip all the way down both sides as well as just the top, so that you don’t have to “cram” clothes in from top
