- Why We Like: durable, saves space in your closet, holds a lot
- What We Don't Like: zippers and wheels aren't smooth, interior space could be larger, side pocket not very functional
- Size: 21-inch carry-on
Launched in the U.S. in the summer of 2022, Rollink piqued our interest with the brand's claims that its suitcase could fold down to less than the width of a credit card, reducing its size by 75 percent. After testing it for a year, we can safely say that while it definitely takes up more than a credit card's worth of space in your closet (the expandable area between its two hardside ends allows it to shrink down to about the width of a book), it's still compact enough to be a apartment lover's dream. It works through the use of three wooden interior slabs attached to velcro strips that you can attach to the sides of the case for stability and shape. Once you're finished using the suitcase, the wooden sides detach from the velcro, allowing the the suitcase's two ends zip together to be zipped together.
When expanded, this holds slightly more than my 24-inch American Tourister bag ($126), since the bottom isn't cluttered by any bars or obstructors. It has also held up pretty well over time: While it certainly has its scratches, few are very noticeable. We do wish the side pocket was a bit more functional (it's a bit too tight to get much inside or get anything back out once it's gone in) and that the hardware, including the zippers and wheels, were a bit smoother, but other than that, it's a nice and innovative little case for the price.
