    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    Great carryon luggage! Lightweight Rolls beautifully. Holds alot.

    Solid performer! I have taken this suitcase on three 4 day trips. Each trip I was able to fit everything I needed. The internal divider allows the suitcase to be opened without clothes spilling out.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!

  19. 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.

    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!

    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.

  40. 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!

  41. 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.

  42. 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.

  43. 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. I've been using it for a month and I LOVE IT! It rolls with ease! Sturdy! Perfect size to fit all my contents! Thank you Chester for making my travel life easy!

    I have gone on four trips so far with my carry on, and it’s been perfect! One of the trips was a 3-day cruise and everything was able to fit. I have already recommended it to many girlfriends.

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

    The only complaint I have about this is that there are way too many colors to choose from! I want them all! The wheels are very smooth.

    Perfect for my regular business travel

  59. 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!
