Samsonite here is crap as well. Made in India and likes to break down frequently. Two travels with my Cosmopolite Spinner or however that is called, the one with the ultra-thin ultra-strong plastic. One repair pre-travel after buying it and one repair post-travel (never use the handle on the broad side, it will come off!).
Charged 200NT by the shop for 2nd repair for mine.
2nd suitcase of same type of wife (she does not put much in it): one repair pre-travel, 2xtravel okay.
One day I be saying to my son: "Listen, everything is so easy for you young people today. Just imagine how tough things were when I was young. Like... we didn't have Japanese sex droids"
