I bought this to mount on the back of a motorcycle as a top case. It works well for that task if you have the space and has built in mounting points. These are normally used to hold the sliding handle and wheel unit to the case, but when those are removed, there are several points that can be used along the bottom of the case to mount it to something else. This was a bonus feature for me, allowing me to mount it w/o drilling holes thru the case. As a piece of luggage, it will survive any handling or mis-handling the traveler might encounter. It's tough! However, it is also just a bit too large for some airline limits for carry on luggage, so check your favorite carrier before ordering if that is your intended use. I also purchased a lid organizer for this unit. However, I found that when the case was exposed to the sun for extended periods, the adhesive on the velcro that attached the lid organizer to the lid would soften and fail, leaving me with the organizer laying in the case instead of secured to the lid. This was a detraction for me. Even adhesive promoter failed to overcome this issue. I have been told epoxy will prevent this, but have not tried it as yet. The case is sized well for larger items and is lockable with padlocks, which I found useful in travel, both with airline approved locks and heavier padlocks when not used during air travel. It has held up extremely well to outside use on a motorcycle for two years and shows only superficial wear from use. I have never had water intrude inside the case, despite long hours in driving rain while mounted on the back of a motorcycle traveling at highway speeds as well as sitting outside in all kinds of weather.
