Purchased this set for a family trip to Hawaii in OCT'12. The luggage had a very distinct odor that to this day has not gone away. Luggage made the trip fine. Since the first use, we've used some pieces on weekend getaways. We are not rough with the luggage at all. The plastic frames on the three rolling pieces started to crack and crumble. You could lift the bag and shake it to hear the broken pieces. We ended up unzipping the lining to remove all the cracked pieces. We are now left with frameless luggage that doesn't keep it's sturdy form. I guess for the price, it served it's original purpose but not a set I would take on a second large trip.
I love my new luggage set. They are striking and beautiful in appearance. I had many compliments on them and very easy to locate on luggage carousel. The 4 wheel spinners make it very easy to maneuver. The luggage is very lightweight and they expand to accommodate over stuffing them. If I have any complaints they would be 1) That the smaller carry on bag when expanded will not fit in the overhead compartment. No fun to learn that on a sold out plane with moody passengers, had to check it last minute. 2) I have not figured out an easy way to zip/unzip them when they are laying down. I love the TSA personalized combo locks so they can be secure and no keys for me to lose. They are great buy.
