Used this fashion-forward set of luggage for the first time for an Alaskan cruise. When I retrieved my luggage from baggage claim, yes, very easy to spot, I was shocked that the large suitcase was damaged. The side handle was ripped from the rivet, probably due to baggage handling. My cruise was 14 days, and I didn't have time to shop for new luggage. Zip ties held the handle in place; however, the manufacturer should construct luggage tough enough to withstand baggage handlers. Very disappointed in the construction. Also, luggage does not expand and there are not tandem straps to piggyback luggage. With the handle ripping from the rivet on the large bag, I was hesitant to piggyback the other bags, afraid I'd lose another handle. I do have a call in to the company, as it does state this set is under a 5-yr warranty. We'll see how the company proceeds.
I purchased this luggage set for a christmas gift for my sister. We traveled to Europe and she used it for the first time on a two week trip and by the end of the trip it was damaged. The fabric ripped at the seams in various places. I would not reccommend this to anyone. Very dissapointing since she loved the look of it so much and it was easy to pick out on the luggage carousel.
This luggage set is adorable and will definitely be easy to spot on the baggage carousel. The spinner wheels are great - very smooth and move in any direction very easily. The luggage did arrive with a strong odor, but after airing them out for a few days, the smell is completely gone. Five pieces for this price make this a great value. The interior lining is a pretty paisley print and there's plenty of room to hold all my essentials. I haven't traveled with this set by air yet, so I can't vouch for the durability after baggage handlers get ahold of them, but they seem to be sturdy and I'm looking forward to lots of use with this fun, great looking set.

LOVE LOVE LOVE... On my 1st cruise in February, I broke 2 of my wheels on my luggage. Needless to say, I needed new ones for my next trip. From experience, I know to buy different and colorful luggage to spot it easier on the carousel (my last set was hot pink!). When I saw this giraffe print, I knew it was the one. Got it super fast and absolutely adore it. I know it's cool when my 18 year old borrowed it for her last trip!!

I bought this luggage because I really wanted spinners that were fairly stylish and not too expensive. Based on all the other great reviews I thought this American Flyer set would be perfect. Well, since I got the set I've only used one piece (the pull-along duffle) and its... ok. The other pieces are fine as well, but the set just didn't look as elegant as I thought it would. So I would recommend, but only for those who really want a set of fairly decent spinners at a good price- not for anyone who really wants very stylish long lasting luggage. I can see that I will be needing a new set much sooner than I had originally expected.
This is a very unique set of luggage. I love the fact that it shows my personality. I am concerned that it won't hold up for very long but hey you get five pieces for under $**** what can you expect. It rolls easily but they don't hook together. The photo's don't acurately show the color of the green. It is neon green not a lime green like I expected. They are expandable and there are several pockets inside and out that help keep things organized. The giraffe material is holding up well but the green scuffs and I expect will tear easily. The guys in my family are even willing to walk through the airport with them so that was a pleasant surprise and says something about the "coolness" of them.
Received luggage set very quickly. Love the spinner wheels and the print...very easy to spot in the airport. So far, I've only used the large upright, but it worked great and held all of my belongings with room to spare. The green did get a little smugged, but that is only expected when checking-in luggage in an airport. Can't wait to use more of the set on our honeymoon this summer!
Just got my luggage in the mail today and it was beautiful! The colors were very vibrant and it looked to be very well made. I have not used it yet but there was plenty of pieces to accomadate a very long trip if planned. All of the pieces had lots of room and different pockets for separating things. Can't wait to use it!
We bought this luggage for my 10 year old daughter and were pleasantly surprised to find how nice it really is. The pieces are very roomy and very lightweight. The full spinner wheels make a huge difference when loaded up. The zippers seem heavy duty also. We have only used it once but so far so good.
This is such a nice set of luggage. It's obviously very fun, which is always a plus! The interior is well-made and the wheels seem to be pretty rugged. So far I've only used the carry-on rolling suitcase and it housed a weekend's worth of clothes very nicely. I like how the outer pouches are designed, too...again, quality construction. I think this is my first Overstock.com purchase and I'm very happy with it!
My daughter got this set for Christmas and she loves the design and even uses it around the house to play with. We have not had the chance to travel with them yet but they appear well made. The interior is even lined with a beautiful giraffe material!
