    Birthday gift for my wife that she absolutely loves!

  2. 5 out of 5

    I bought this for my husband who travels frequently for his job. He really likes it. It is lightweight and rolls easily. He is very happy with it

  3. 5 out of 5

    Love the internal pockets, zippers and wheels! Everything about it is as advertised. Fits perfectly in overhead bins, TSA approved lol is great.

  4. 5 out of 5

    Love this luggage Lightweight, sturdy, somewhat flexible and fits a lot. I can easily pack a week’s worth of winter clothes using vacuum bags. Comes with separate zip compartments to keep clean and dirty clothes or shoes separate. Love it.

  5. 5 out of 5

    Great bag! Just got back from taking this bag to Costa Rica. So far so good. It rolls really smoothly, and I love the zippers on both sides. The included laundry bag (at least that's what I used it for) is also very convenient!

    Great 3-4 day trip rolling hard shell luggage Great for 3-4 day trips. Fit well overhead and wheels easily through the airport.

    Great for travel Lightweight and sturdy

  8. 5 out of 5

    looks great + feels sturdy I was apprehensive to purchase an unknown brand and the price point seemed too low to be good quality. Bought this for our 13 year old. Normally purchase TUMI and have for years. But for our kiddos, their price points are way too high and they do not need all the bells and whistles. That said, the CHESTER looks fantastic and is rock solid construction. She has not used it yet but cannot wait. Wish you made this in a larger size!! We would definitely purchase a full set.

    I gave this as a Christmas gift - well received Nice looking, well made

  10. 5 out of 5

    Perefect fit! wheels are included in the airline size requirements..others don’t include the wheels! Perfect size, wheels move smoothly. It actually is the airline size including wheels!

    Lightweight. Liked the color

  12. 5 out of 5

    Premium Quality for Great Price I absolutely love this carry on suitcase. I performed extensive research before ultimately choosing this carry on for the quality, price, style, and functionality. The size fits most airline guidelines for carry ons unlike some other carry on suitcases I was looking at that were too big for some restrictions. It also comes with a 10 year warrantee which was important for me. I've already taken this bag on two trips and I haven't had any issues. The dividers are so nice for keeping items separated and organized. Even when the compartments seem bulging and full the bag still closes with no problem, so I found I can put extra bulky clothing items between the two dividers if needed. Hopefully my review can save you the hours of research I went through. If you're looking for a suitcase that rivals the luxury of AWAY but falls under the prices of Samsonite, then look no further than this bag!

  13. 5 out of 5

    I love this bag!! It has so many compartments and so much room. I’m one of those people that only travels with a carry on and I was able to pack enough clothing for a week long trip. It’s comparable to the away bags for a much more reasonable price. The wheels roll with ease and it’s super light weight. I would definitely recommend this carry on to anyone!!

  14. 5 out of 5

    A welcome gift Daughter asked for light-weight, hard-sided carry-on back for Christmas. She's delighted and I thought it was a good value.

  15. 5 out of 5

    Very easy to use- wheels are great! Used this new luggag for a weekend trip this past weekend and loved it! Just big enough for a weekend!! Wheels are very smooth to roll around.

  16. 5 out of 5

    Beautiful, sturdy yet elegant little suitcase.

  17. 5 out of 5

    One of the best carry-on luggages we have purchased I gave this to my husband as part of his Christmas present in preparation for a trip. He is 6'5 and the height of the handle is tall enough for him to comfortably wheel. The wheels swivel well, the Titanium color is sleek and there is more than enough room for a 4 day trip. No issues getting into the overhead. Highly recommend!

  18. 4 out of 5

    Very good for overhead luggage. Very good for overhead luggage. Perfect for my 5 days in Vegas.

  19. 5 out of 5

    Good Quality Amazing! Durable and sleek, has interior pockets that are so helpful for organization and keeping things in their places! Lightweight and meets both domestic and international carry on requirements. Wheels are large enough to roll over brick roads

  20. 5 out of 5

    Looks like it's perfect Has all the tricks. Cant wait to try it out!

  21. 5 out of 5

    Quality. I really love it! So sturdy and easy to maneuver. Didn’t think I could go on a 5 day trip with only a carry on, but with this little gem I can.

  22. 5 out of 5

    Well Built Loves all the extras like leather bag tag, laundry bag, separate compartments, wheels. I expect to get many years of life from this bag.

  23. 5 out of 5

    Lighweight and great size for overseas travel Just returned from a trip to Asia and this suitcase worked out perfectly. I had no problems with the size on any of the airlines I took. The bag is lightweight and fits quite a few items. It was easy to wheel around airports and hotels. I know it is a bit early to confirm durability- after only one trip - but it is off to a very good start.

  24. 5 out of 5

    Great Suitcase, bought 3 I bought 2 carry-on sizes for kids as early Christmas gifts for an international trip last week. They held up very well and we loved all the compartments. Lightweight, nice looking and stowed overhead on a small plane very well. I liked them so much that I ordered a third suitcase for myself! Only "flaw" is that there are no inside straps to hold clothes in place. The zippered compartments help but if it's not full, things fall to the bottom.

  25. 5 out of 5

    I purchased this suitcase a few months ago in preparation for a trip in November. I wanted a suitcase that I would be able to take on the plane as a carry on. The suitcase was very light - I could lift it (most of my smaller suitcases are heavier) and it rolls very smoothly (more smoothly than my other suitcases). I liked the fact that the inside of the suitcase had zipper compartments so everything stayed in its place when I open the suitcase. The funny thing though is that I had to google the instructions on how to change the combo lock....it wasn't until I was on my trip that I found the instructions in the zipper pocket inside the suitcase! I generally have other travel size bags that I use to organize my clothes, toiletries, etc. so I did not use the zipper pockets (so hence missing the instructions the first time). I plan on buying another Chester for my husband for our next trip.

  26. 5 out of 5

    Perfect carry on Purchased this after doing a lot of research and it’s perfect. So glad I chose this over other options - it’s even $50 cheaper!

  27. 5 out of 5

    Cool, sleek, and other bonuses My fiancé is extremely happy with this awesome product by Chester. We are frequent travelers and she was looking for a practical carry on with a sleek look. This achieves both and more. She loves all the pockets and compartments as well as the complimentary laundry bag! Looking forward to many travels with her and her luggage :p

  28. 5 out of 5

    I love it My friend recommended this, and I love it! Please make a larger one!!!

  29. 5 out of 5

    Perfect carry-on I needed a carry-on case really quickly for a trip so I bought this one based purely on the Amazon reviews. And it's so pretty and beautifully functional! I'm very happy with this purchase.

  30. 5 out of 5

    Smooth wheels This has to be the smoothest wheels of any bag ever!

  31. 5 out of 5

    Very happy with my purchase This carry-on looks great, it is light and appears durable, and it can hold a surprisingly large amount of items considering the size. Very happy with my purchase so far. I wish they had a larger version that I could buy as a matching set.

  32. 5 out of 5

    Well made and I especially like the organization inside the luggage. The blue is beautiful and quality in every area that can irk me: handle, wheels, zippers etc! 5* 100% satisfied! Especially pleased with the weight, with everything being of such high quality l feared there would be added weight but that is accurate in the description and was critical to me.

  33. 5 out of 5

    Wheels for days! Honestly I thought my 3 set of luggage from amazon was nice and my one Chester blows the entire set out of the water. Wheels are amazing, size is perfect (not a single argument w any airlines) and quality is top notch. Just got my dad one for his birthday!

  34. 5 out of 5

    Carry on luggage - have used this 3 times and like it very much. Has great features and holds at least 3-5 days of clothes. Fits all carry on compartments. Did much research and glad I chose this one as opposed to AWAY.

  35. 5 out of 5

    I’m looking forward to many years of fabulous travel with my Chester carry-on! My beautiful blue Chester carry-on arrived before promised date and in perfect condition. I love the flexible outer shell, the telescoping handle and the multidirectional wheels. The inside has plenty of room and has zippered compartments to keep my belongings organized. I’m looking forward to many years of fabulous travel with my Chester!

  36. 5 out of 5

    Highly recommend! My partner and I switch off using the Chester when we travel for work, and we love it. It rolls smoothly, is light, always fits in the overhead bin and catches a few eyes because of its beautiful design. Highly recommend!

  37. 5 out of 5

    Convenient and easy to use Just used it on a trip that involved 4 planes and it fit just fine for my carry-on.... Good choice!

    Perfect Size Perfect carry on bag

  40. 5 out of 5

    Very well made and lightweight! Have used this once so far. The Chester carry-on seems very durable and is very lightweight. Every space inside is designed to accommodate what is added with no wasted space. Wonderful, zippered, sturdy compartments to keep you organized. Great on outside too! Easy to push or pull and sturdy wheels. If a larger Chester suitcase was made, I would buy it as well!

  41. 5 out of 5

    Great carryon luggage! Lightweight Rolls beautifully. Holds alot.

  42. 5 out of 5

  45. 5 out of 5

    I'm a frequent traveler and have already used my Chester half a dozen times. So far, I'm a big fan. The sleek outer is not only beautiful, but stands out. The interior has great, easy-to-use compartments that make packing easy. Additionally, the bag fits into all overhead bins. I love this bag and highly recommend it. It's worth every penny.

  46. 5 out of 5

    Great case Shelter is a great case. All my stuff fits nicely and it fits great in the overhead airplane compartment

  47. 5 out of 5

    Superior quality Love this suitcase! Perfect size for short trips, fits perfectly in overhead bin. Exceptional build quality.

  48. 5 out of 5

    Fits stated airline dimension requirements - if only airlines would followed said dimensions In preparation for a two week trip to France, Ireland and England, I read several travel blogs and discovered that travelers felt the European airlines were much more stringent regarding the size of carry-on luggage. I picked the Chester Carry-On luggage knowing that it would fall with-in the stated dimensions. Love the bag - it worked perfectly. It was light weight and rolled easily. Worth noting, the side of the bag that houses the handes/pull-bars makes it difficult to pack items flatly. Although I discovered that the airlines were not one bit paticular about the size of carry-on (I saw many people carrying on bags that were several inches larger than mine) I'm still happy I purchased this bag and would do so again.

  49. 4 out of 5

    Nice suitcase Nice suitcase! Just a little smaller than I thought it might be. Not the companies fault, I should have done some measurements before order but such is life 🤷🏻‍♂️ Hope they’ll make a bigger one in the future!

  50. 5 out of 5

    I LOVE this suitcase. It rolls easily, is light, and has great pockets/ zipper compartments inside. I searched for weeks when looking for a new carry-on that actually met the size requirements. This suitcase is pretty much perfect. I will definitely being buying another one when my other suitcases need replacing.

  51. 5 out of 5

    very easy to pack with all of the zippered compartments Very easy to pack with all of the zippered compartments. I especially like the double sippers on the large compartments.

    Happy Customer I considered buying a smart carry-on (for example, Away or Raden) because of all the online ads that I've been, but ultimately decided to go with Chester because I wasn't convinced the battery pack was worth the larger price tag. I am glad that I ended up going with the Chester because it fits all of my basic travel needs. I've used it on three weekend trips and I am very happy with my purchase!

  61. 5 out of 5

    Daughter Loves It I bought this for my daughter as a gift for high school graduation. She has used this for a few weekends already and loves it.

    Awesome Inside Compartments Very pleased with my purchase. After two trips, I am finding the Chester to be everything that I wanted. My favorite feature is the well designed inside compartments.

  71. 5 out of 5

    Loved it! Loved traveling with the Chester. It was small enough to fit within all of the overhead bins, but large enough to store all of my clothes for a 4-day trip. The wheels are also smooth!

  72. 5 out of 5

    High quality product that is comparable to other more expensive suitcases. It is sturdy, rolls smoothly, lightweight and has a differentiated look. It held up well during a month in Asia, on and off the trains and over the cobblestones. It's also got great interior components.

  73. 5 out of 5

    The product works great. So far, I've dragged it all over my Euro trip, including 3 flights and 3 trains. I think it's a great value product. Highly recommend.

  74. 5 out of 5

    I have been a flight attendant for 10 years, so I am always traveling. I've been searching for a chic, lightweight, easy-to-roll hard shell carry on that can keep up with me.

  81. 5 out of 5

    The perfect product for short trips as it is lightweight yet big enough to hold all of your essentials

    Perfect for my regular business travel

  90. 5 out of 5

    My old carry-on was nearing the end. When I came across the Chester I knew this would be a steal. Very sturdy, it basically glides on the floor and swivels with ease. Being tall I always had a hard time, most carry-ons are too short and end up hitting the back of my feet if i pull them. The hard shell makes packing easy and the compression system makes closing the back even easier. The color scheme is amazing, I got the grey one and the baby blue inside looks even better in person. They even included a little laundry/intimates bag. Finally the combination lock with the TSA is a great touch! Already recommending this to family and friends!
