At 24", this is roomy enough to accommodate everything you need for a long weekend or a week. Yet it's compact and light weight enough that you won't feel like you're lugging a trunk through the airport.
The hard shell will protect everything in the bag, but is light weight enough to breeze through a crowd, even if you have to run. And there are 4 wheels for stability when running to catch your flight - not always found on a smaller sized bag.
The diamond patterned finish resists scratches, and the vibrant red color will be easy to pick out at the baggage claim.
