I'm going to ditch my second carry on item, this thing fits everything. I've used roll, carry on bags in the past but the compression section changes the game. I like that you can just pull the handle up without pushing in the button. I tend to rest my hand on the center of the handle which this luggage is good for in that it doesn't drop the handle accidentally because the buttons are located on the sides. Also the wheels are pretty big so this thing rolls very smoothly, only challenge is that last little bit while boarding you have to carry it which is no big deal.
