Lipault luggage durability

I'm travelling to Turkey and Europe and am looking at the 2 wheel Lipault luggage. Wondering how durable it is. If I'm catching buses and it getting thrown around.

I bought a 2 wheel Lipault six or seven years ago and it is still going strong. It has been to Turkey, and many times to Europe. It's been through lots of adventures, some rough journeys, on safari, been overstuffed, dragged across every surface you can imagine.

Liked it so much I bought another (chocolate) a couple of years later for one of the grandkids for our trip to England and France. That one has gone walkabout after being lent one time too many, everyone likes it so much it gets borrowed on (I believe it even went to NZ with someone).

I've never babied mine, quite the opposite. It has been stowed in the holds of ships, stuffed under buses with other suitcases piled on top, survived airline baggage handlers. The bottom is getting a bit rough/worn, as well as the bottom front (dragged upside down across a busy road, it overturned bumping off a curb as we dashed across and I would have been squashed if I'd taken the time to turn it over--my husband still teases me about that), but the material has help up surprisingly well. Before my last trip (Cuba), I wiped down the outside of my purple one as it was looking a little grubby, as well it should by then.

I love the lightweight construction, usually weighing in at airports, when fully loaded, at around 12 lbs, a few times a couple of ounces over. I can lift it overhead into train luggage racks and on planes.

Go for it.

I got 40% off today, they had a sale on Chocolate and Navy. I have been wanting a two wheeled 18 inch and got it for 109.00.
