Keep your style sensibilities in check, even while traveling, with the Lyon red four-piece luggage set from American Flyer. The classic print not only showcases your taste for timeless fashion, it is also bold enough to spot easily in baggage claim....more
I almost bought the complete set on Overstock, but I happened to see it at a local discount store (yes, same brand), I quickly purchased the two pieces available, then hunted for the third piece I needed to complete my set. Five stores later, I found it, but was dismayed to see a very noticeable snag and a run going along the back. I scratched at it with my fingernail to try and figure it out when I realized that the fleur de lis pattern appears to be machine "embroidered" or woven in a way that they could eventually wear in parts and snag. Reluctantly, I rationalized that if it snagged while just being handled in a store, how could it endure a real trip and rough baggage handlers? Unfortunately, due to that reason, I returned the two pieces I purchased and didn't buy the third I had been searching for... As adorable and pretty as this set is, I need my luggage to last a while. If you're just doing car trips and overnighters, this is probably fine.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE the pattern. My favorite color is RED so this Luggage suits me Perfectly. The Gold Fluer de Lis sparkle brilliantly all over. I was dissappointed to find that all 3 of the upright pieces have in-line wheels--the selling description expressly stated that the largest 2 had the new spinner wheels--so if this feature is a must-have Beware! Also, the 3 uprights have a combination of black (handles and corner protectors) and brown (zippers)--I would have liked consistency much better--either the brown OR the black, but having both is aesthetically awkward. I do love the Gold brass detail holding the handles in place and the Doctor's Bag is my FAVE! In fact, it was the deciding factor in choosing this set and only has brown leather (no black zipper).
*Note: I purchased this set for my trip to Spain this summer (2010) so I have not actually used the uprights (except wheeling them around in front of my mirror HAHA!) but I received countless compliments on my new "Overnight" bag, which is large enough for a weekend trip (or a week if you're a light packer, which I am not). This bag only has two handles and can only be carried on small shoulders--this bag also gets heavy very easily so your arms will be dying if you dont take this into consideration.
The item has a 5year warranty and I purchased the 2year contract from Overstock as well (just in case!)
This luggage stinks. I mean literally stinks.....it has a very strong tar-like smell. I let it 'air out' for several days, and it did not help at all. There is no way you could put your clothes in this luggage without the smell transferring to them. On another note, I loved the fabric and the sizes of the various pieces, however, the trim is not leather and looks quite cheap. Big disappointment all the way around.
The luggage set is very high quality and is extremely attractive. The construction is very good. Nice smooth wheels. The doctor bag is a little large and can get heavy, but it is functional. The only down side to this set is the odor. The luggage has a chemical like odor so I let it set for a couple weeks before using it. The chemical smell is becoming less noticeable but I found it a little unusual when it first arrived.
I am very satisfied with my purchase. As a frequent traveler for work I have the appropriate size bag between the 4 in the set. The coloring scheme has also made it a lot easier at the baggage claim. Previous consumers complained about a smell on the luggage when they received it however, the only smell associated with my luggage was that 'new' smell you get with any new purchase. All bags in this set have lots of room and I am very happy I made this purchase.
This luggage is very stylish but I am afraid the material won't last long the way airport handlers handle luggage. The telescoping handles need lubricating because they stick. Nice set of luggage but I will see if it lasts.
Set held up well during use on a crusie. I recevied complimetns. The drs bad is HUGE. It could use wheels. Nice, unexpected peiace though. I don't expect the set to last ten years. However, I probably wouldnt want it that long anyway. Average quality.

Love the look but disappointed with the quality. Fabric on two pieces is not pulled tight so fabric looks rippled. Extending handle in large piece gets stuck. Thought about returning but don't want to go through the hassle and I need it for a trip soon.
However, customer service has always been stellar.

I love (and collect) various items in the fleur-de-lis design, and was delighted to see this luggage set for our trip to Italy and a Mediterranean cruise. I wasn't looking for this, just happened upon it so I carefully reviewed the measurements. I selected this design because I wanted something classy and large enough to accomdate my needs, as well as unique enough to locate when it comes down the carousel.
How accurate was the sizing? I didn't measure them, and they seem a bit larger, but I need LARGE!
Please tell us about the quality of the product. It's beautiful, rich, and elegant looking

This set was a gift for my sister for Christmas, but I've had the black set for a couple of years. I chose it mostly because it looks so nice having also read the reviews. Several people have mentioned the handle breaking so I was nervous about that, but mine have held up with no problems. I've taken them on several short trips and two cruises but no air travel. The black set that I ordered had a train case with it, and I *love* that. It's just the right size to carry all my toiletries, and it has elastic straps all around perfect for keeping bottles upright (No more ziploc bags! Although I probably would if I were giving my bags to an airline.) I'm happy with my black set, and the red is really pretty- it's a nice, rich red, not a desperate older lady red. I feel so stylish every time I use it!
