Convertable rolling Suitcase

"I just returned from my first trip using the Cygnet. It performed beyond my expectations. These features are particularly appreciated:
1) It is 6.5 pounds lighter than my previous rolling suitcase, 2) it conforms to the shape of the aircraft overhead bin so that I can place it crosswise (wheels facing out) in the bin instead of lengthwise, allowing more bags in the bin 3) the longer handle makes it easier to wheel and 4) numerous pockets.....
I think the Cygnet has appeal for the sophisticated traveler...."
