I don't know if I want a new suitcase or not. Except for losing a zipper tab, my two-wheel Delsey is fine. It has a handle on the bottom -great for putting the suitcase on my bed - and curved corners to make zipping easier. But just walking five blocks in Vancouver wasn't fun because it weighed 40 pounds. Maneuvering it at the airport was very difficult, especially at an escalator. That makes me think my next trip, to Italy in November, should be the first time I use a spinner.
The reason I did not even consider getting a spinner last time was such bags have a high risk of their wheels breaking off. Moving the suitcase any direction easily is not worth it IMO. But my experience in Vancouver convinced me I really do need a spinner if there isn't a very good chance of that happening. I just can't get that concern out of my head when I think about spinners.
Of course, if I don't get a spinner, I would just keep the same suitcase for now. But someday I will want a new suitcase anyway, even though it is still usable, and my mom said most people have spinners now. When should I get a new suitcase? What kind should I get?
