Longhaul Soft Astrolite Large Rollercase
Very disappointed; bad purchase
I bought the large size about 2 years ago - and was pleased to be able to fill it with lightweight summer clothes - 20 kg worth. However, it is poorly designed so the sides of the case are unsupported and it is very difficult to manipulate - ie when lifting on/off trains - and it appears even heavier when pulling it across say an airport floor. Not up to M&S's high standard.

Such a shame
Really pleased to buy this in a sale and all was well as I packed
But,when I tried to pull it along on a flat and polished surface it was as if someone had put the brakes on !
As others have reported whilst the wheels run freely when the case is empty,when filled to 20kg you had better be strong !

same problem as "formulaonefan"
Bought this suitcase last year at a discount. Experienced the same problem as previous reviewer (16.4.13)when I used it on the various trips. Have always blamed it on the fact that I was "getting old" and never thought it could be the design....

Lightweight and roomy
I have used this suitcase once now and it seems fine though I still prefer my previous M&S suitcase which I have had for some years and which it replaced.
It is very lightweight and roomy but I was dissapointed that misleading measurements on the website meant that I had to take back the meduim size and order the large one.
