Look along the zipper and see if you can get an idea of how it expands... basically like all other expandable luggage.

Expandable is understandable, but I was thinking stretchable (in addition to expansion) -which is the nature of fabric.
@yitzyul said it well too.
I personally like material ones as it does "bend" making it easier to squeeze in places (car, overhead, etc). Also if putting under seat, its more comfortable for your feet to rest on material then a hard box!

I have this
Here is how I got it.
I had a $20 duffel bag, and a United baggage agent ripped it in EWR. I brought it to them. They offered me a duffel bag, I told them I didn't like it, what else can the offer me.
Tada!

Any new suggestions for a lightweight Poly-carbonate spinner piece that is just within the 62" cubic inch guidelines that I think most airlines have?

I found this one with my own research.  http://www.luggagefactory.com/cgi-bin/shopper.cgi?preadd=action&key=S592-48184

Generally you're allowed 62 total linear inches.
Is this still true? What about hand luggage?
