The S and S Machine case was very durable, and easily met my purposes for traveling with my bike. Knowing the way that baggage gets tossed around, it’s nice knowing that your bike will be protected from most abuse. The bomber handles are easy to use, and they spring back flat against the case when not in use. It has a handle on top for hefting and lifting it around, and another one in front that is used to pull the case on its wheels. The rear wheels, which are recessed slightly, make it handy to pull the case around, since when it is full it’s a large, heavy and bulky case (heck it has a full bike in it). The very simple butterfly latches work well, and you don’t have to worry about them accidentally popping open. I highly recommend this case, it makes traveling with a bike a breeze.
