Elegant and practical, this 3 piece set of SHADOW 3.0 features the first hard-side luggage that opens like a soft-side case. Clothing, coats and shoes can all be packed in one main compartment, accommodating larger items and maximizing space for a variety of packing options. The top lid opening also makes it easy to pack in small places, open the suitcase on a luggage rack, or access last minute items when the bag is packed in the trunk of a car. The lightweight polycarbonate material is scratch resistant and offers the style and durability of a hard-side case. If your bag is overstuffed, it may not be approved for carry-on use by the airlines.
