    I prefer the 4 wheel ones because it is easier on the shoulders/neck/back.

    Spinner is my preference. I like my bag to glide along side me instead of lagging behind me.

    You can keep it to yourself or start a conversation. My pet peeve is doing that in front of everybody.

    Ok, back on topic. 4 wheeler...no question. Much easier to move it around.

    My usual bag is whatever the casino was giving away.


    Seriously, I have a small Samsonite spinner. On SWA the wheels stick out too far to shut the overhead bin. And that is with the (likely) smallest one they offer.

    I have a samsonite roller small enough to put inside my tumi roller. the tumi is quite big, big enough I check it now as sometimes they wont let me bring it on but it fits in the overheard bin just fine

    I like the two wheel pullers for two reasons.

    1. You get about an extra inch of luggage space for the same sized bag.
    2. I think the two wheel pullers have much sturdier wheels and have a lot less that can go wrong if you have to check a bag. Those spinners look very fragile in the wheel area.

    For me the ability to move my suitcase around like I'm playing "Frogger" (remember the Seinfeld episode) isn't worth the tradeoff for more sturdiness and a little extra luggage room.

    :peace: :beer:
