Durable, maneuverable, and eye-catching, our hard-side Explorer luggage is a travel-savvy way to show your love of National Geographic. It's full of features that frequent travelers will appreciate. For starters, you'll be able to spot the full-color graphics in an instant whether it's sliding down the baggage claim chute at LAX or strapped to the roof of a bus in Bangalore.
A zippered pocket on the inside lid and interior tie-down straps help you stay organized and efficiently packed. Both wheels have 360° rotation so it's easy to maneuver through crowded airline terminals and other tight spaces. The push-button, retractable handle slides smoothly. And a carry handle on the top helps when lifting the suitcase in and out of overhead bins or the trunk of a taxi. Now with a pebbled texture that resists scratches and dings even better than smooth-sided hard luggage.

Comments about Kids' Polar Bear Hard-side Luggage:
This little suitcase is so cute I want one for myself. I gave it to my polar-bear-obsessed niece for her 12th birthday and she loved it. It is a good size, and looks like it will fit enough clothes and even some books for a multi-day visit to the grandparents. I like the pebbled finish on the outside of the bag -- looks like it might keep the lovely design from getting too scratched up. Of course polar bears are white which is unfortunate, as I suspect the bag will collect its share of scuffs and stains. However, it does look small enough to carry on which might save it from the worst of luggage-handler damage.
