I got an amazing bag at TJ Maxx. It's from the Samsonite Aspire line. Very light, and the absolutely coolest thing about it is that the wheels have 360 degree movement. Sounds goofy, but it means that you can pull it in every direction, spin it around in place, and - most cool - you can actually push it along next to you while it's standing completely upright. Not having to pull a bag behind your body is so much better ergonomically - it made all that traveling I had to do last year so much better. I could walk down the aisle on the plane, pushing my bag sideways ahead of me. So awesome.

I can show you mine sometime, or you can just go look at TJ Maxx. It cost around $60, I think.

Wow, you got a great deal.

I have a Samsonite spinner and love it to death, the wheels are a revelation! I got mine when they first came out and so it was more expensive. I don't remember the model I have, but it's designed specifically to fit in the overhead compartments from front to back. And even has a convenient way to get stuff out of the bag while it's up in the bin.

I expect that it's a second. The zippers handles are a little weird - if they're not quite in the right orientation, they get stuck and have to wiggled around. But it's a very minor flaw, and I love, love, love the bag. As you say - those wheels are a revelation.
