Went on a 5 day 4 night trip and was able to use this carry-on for the first time.

Construction: It’s a sturdy little case, wheels glide well, are mounted securely, zippers are heavy duty (I lubricated them with graphite too), lock mechanism is handy but I wish the dials were a little larger to make turning easier, exterior is durable, and the extending handle is sufficiently long enough for my 6′ frame to pull comfortably but is not as sturdy as I’d like it to be (I hope it holds up).

Balance: I had a laptop case which slid over the extended handle just fine. Upright the case pushed along fine and did not topple, even going up and down ramps. Casters swiveled just fine and I wheeled like this through the aisle on the plane. Pulling it behind me however, it tended to want to flip to it’s side, this was probably due to my laptop case not staying perfectly balanced on the extended handle which caused the weight to shift.

Capacity: I packed the following:

(1) Bathroom bag (9.7 x 9.1 x 2.9 inches)
(5) Pairs of socks
(5) T-Shirts
(5) Undies
(1) Pair of dress shoes
(2) Belts
(4) Pairs of slacks
(4) Dress shirts
(2) Polo shirts
(1) Lint roller
(1) Light jacket

Expanded the case when packing, then compressed it when full. No capacity problem at all.

Overhead Compartment Sizing: No issue what so ever

Overall, a great buy.
