Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is the most comfortable bib short I have ever owned....from the waist down. The fabric, the chamois, the fit is perfect. The only negative for this bib is the straps. I have no idea what they are made out of, but the fabric is very coarse. I honestly don't notice on rides, but every time I put it on I think "what the heck is this? sandpaper?". Make the straps out of a more comfy material and it's an easy 5 stars

Familiarity: I've used it several times

While I haven't owned any other travel cases, this is not what I expected. I have owned it for six months and traveled roughly 8 or 10 times with it. It's a big indestructible box with two cheap wheel bags inside. The bike stand is useless. Throw the tripod legs for the stand away. Put the handlebars back on the bike while it's in the case, take the bike out of the case and flip it over to rebuild it. The stand is useless. There is no way to secure the wheel bags inside the case. So if you have a set of expensive carbon wheels, unless you secure them yourself with tape, they just flop around inside the case. Really Thule? You couldn't include a simple way of securing the wheel bags to the case? The inside of the case is the same as the outside. No high density foam liner or anything. Raw hard plastic. Even when the bike is properly secured to the rail, and the rail is properly secured to the case, you can still rock the bike back and forth 5"-6" in each direction. That's a lot of movement and bouncing around...especially if you have ever seen how luggage handlers toss things about. It's heavy and big. With a light road bike it's going to weigh around 45-50lbs, with a big heavy mountain bike it's going to weigh well over 50lbs, with no gear in the case. It is a nightmare to lug around an airport, barely fits in the back of a medium sized SUV. With a little thought and engineering this could be a great case. But for $600, I find it to be a piece of garbage. Add a foam liner, a way to secure the wheel bags and a more secure mounting for the bike and it's a winner. As it stands, it's not worth $100, let alone $600.
