I had purchased a set of this luggage at another vendor, and I am extremely happy with it - it is truly lightweight but durable, the diamond-like pattern of the finish helps hide minor scuffs, and the zippered separator makes it easy to pack and close.Overstock's coup is that they are the only vendor who is selling individual pieces! I always use the mid-sized suitcase more, and that one always wears out first in a set. Also, there are times I would rather take two medium suitcases instead of the larger one, and the fully packed medium size bag will often come in just under the 50 pound weight limit imposed by the airlines before accruing additional baggage fees.
The suitcase is beautiful and I initially had my doubts about it's durability. I purchased it for an upcoming 2-week trip to Greece....and we have all seen what the baggage handlers can do to our luggage. With all the transfers from our airport to Atlanta to Athens and back the same route, it performed beautifully. I even brought back 2 large metal containers of olive oil and a bottle of Ouzo, along with all my clothes and everything made it just fine. The suitcase was just delivered from the airlines a few minutes ago and as soon as I unpacked, I got online to write this review....I was waiting to see if it could take the abuse of the baggage handlers before I wrote my comments.
I should have listened to the reviews. It is sturdy for one flight. But after the second flight I took, it literally bust!

This was the 2nd of these products & was purchased to replace the original which split after 4 or 5 uses. On the very second trip, this one split with no hope of even taping it up to return home. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY AS I DID!!!!!

- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? who knows
On the very first flight the luggage split down the middle, leaving my clothing exposed. I had to buy straps to secure the luggage for the flight home. The hard shell around the wheels also cracked. Upon return from my trip, the luggage had split in several other spots. I did not have the luggage "overfull", which I suppose could compromise the hardshell? I would not recommend this luggage.

I needed a new suitcase for a recent trip, and went on O.com to find it. (I have been very satisified with this site) I read about how best to pick a suitcase for specific needs, as well as durability, price and features. I also read some reviews, to see how others rated this item. I am pleased to say I made the right decision - I held my breath when I opened up the carton, but was so pleased when I realized how light-weight it is, which made it very easy to hoist into the trunk between stops. I also love the wheels and telescoping handle, which I have never had on a suitcase! Loved the plethora of pockets, zipped and open, which allowed for many choices in how to pack, which for me is essential. In a word: Awesome!
- How accurate was the sizing? Perfect
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Although it made it's first trip by car, so there was little banging and no throwing, I feel this suitcase can handle anything thrown at it...sturdy outer case, and well-made pockets inside.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? As far as I can see..............
I've enjoyed my lime green spinner. It is small, but roomy at the same time. It is easy to spot at the airport and I would purchase it again.

DO NOT PURCHASE THIS LUGGAGE!! I bought this luggage to travel to Europe and all the suitcases broke, it was a nightmare! One split totally open and the other, the zipper broke off and cracked open as well. I was so disappointed plus trying to handle broken luggage and kids through an airport was difficult. I would not buy Travelers Choice Luggage ever again! The quality is horrible!!
Do not purchase this product!!! I purchased the 3 piece luggage because I was flying to Rome. It was brand new when I used it for that trip. 2 weeks ago I flew to Rome, when I landed in Atlanta, my carry on luggage wheel fell off. I had to purchase another carry on at the airport. I was so upset, the luggage at the airport was very expensive. When I was transferig my belongings from the Travelers Choice Freedom to the new suitcase. I so happen to unzip the inner liner of the Freedom luggage and it had been ducked taped inside in other words they sold me a broken suitcase. I was furious.. My larger suitcase arrived in Rome broken... I called Overstock.com & they credited my account. When I arrived back into the States I called them to purchase another brand of luggage and they offered me a 10% discount... After all I went through they only offered me 10%. Please do not purshase this item and go through what I went through...
I've used once. I was not satisfied with this product only because it does not contain any sort of partisan to keep the clothes separate. You open the luggage and one side all falls out. All other luggage that I have ever bought contains something to separate both sides. WHat I did like was the color, THE FACT THAT It spins around and it's light and not heavy.
