    Got it just before my latest trip (2*2 short flights).
    Even if my experience is limited, I'll highly recommend it:
    - Easy to "install" the bike, without any need to remove/adjust seat, bar or stem.
    - Lighter than hard-shell cases.
    - Easy to transport: Small total size when transporting the bike in car, wheels & straps makes it easy to transport on the airport, streets etc.

    Had no damages or scratches of any kind on my bike - and due the construction, there shouldn't be any risk.

    Disadvantages:
    - No extra room for the wheels - have to use the included straps to tighten them to the frame. If you don't know how - you might get scratches or damaged wheel (if handled very, very rough). But if you know how - no problem at all.
