As far as the design itself, the ripped metal look and trendy colors make the Delsey Bastille Lite suitcase look beautiful. I really love the glossy finish because it can be easily wiped clean. The hardcase is thermoplastic composite, which means it’s not only attractive but more importantly very durable while still being lightweight. But their Achilles heel is usually a tendency to get scuffed. I talk about this in more detail further down in the article under User Reviews.
As for the wheels, they roll smooth and silent even on more bumpy surfaces. The wheels also keep the bag balanced so it’s never top heavy, and takes all the weight off your body.
I’m guilty of the whole rearrange my items, sit on the luggage, pull the zipper, and repeat until you get the bag closed, routine. But this Delsey luggage expands to give you 2 extra inches. And by the way, the zippers are different colors so that you know which zipper is for what.
As the pictures show, there is a TSA approved zipper lock. The fact that it comes with a built in lock is so much better than having to mess with a purchased after-market lock.
