Meh, I must admit it's quite blah. I give it a "B", but I dont know much about luggage from that time period, so maybe luggage really was "blah" at that time. If it was, then I guess it should get an A. I do like how roomy it is, though, so that's a big plus, especially if older versions were smaller. Mine is from 2007. I'm satisfied enough to keep it.
