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...."

    Review from Patto (Amazon Purchaser):
    5.0 out of 5 stars
    Perfect for international travel
    May 10, 2018
    This is just what I needed — a compact rolling bag that will be sure to pass the Draconian rules for carry-on dimensions.

    My objective is to have a change of clothes or two in case my checked baggage is lost. I can fit two summer dresses, jeans, a light sweater, a top, some underwear, make-up — and an extra pair of shoes in this bag. Maybe some small odds and ends too. So I’m trilled to have found this.

    The fact that it’s made in the USA is a big plus with me. Made in China baggage almost always smells of chemicals. This bag is responsibly manufactured, no noxious smell. And it’s good and sturdy. The wheels work fine too."
