Since I didn't have large luggage, I decided to buy some before my three week trip to Argentina. My thought was that I didn't want to spend too much $ since I figured it'd be all banged up, maybe destroyed, by the airline baggage people and by traveling around SA.
It arrived right on time, which I always expect from O.com. I wanted a 3-piece set so that I could check two and carry one on. Plus, I wanted built-in TSA locks. And expandable. And, since I'd be dragging it around, possibly without help, I wanted the add-a-bag straps so I could handle it alone. And adjustable interior straps, and two separate packing areas inside with some zippered storage. Oh, and it had to nest, so I woudn't need a huge area for storage. (Starting to sound like I wanted the world, doesn't it!) Of course, it had to be light. This has EVERYTHING I wanted in luggage. And, you will NOT believe how light this is.
I worried that maybe the quality would suffer, since it was so light, but like I said, it looks as good after that long trip as it did out of the box. Not a scratch. None of the horror stories about the wheels falling off, etc. It wheels perfectly, so easy. And, it was so light. And, I could nest it in the hotel rooms.
The color: I ordered the red. I used to have navy luggage, which was very dark and it was difficult to spot it on the carousel. With this, I don't have that problem. To me, this looks more like rose. Someone along the way mentioned it was "pink", which I don't really see, but it is definitely more of a very dark pink or like I said, maybe rose. My son sees it as red.
I have no complaints. Not one. It is perfect. It's not expensive (I did see an ad on O.com for luggage, and thought, I should have waited. But, I couldn't.) Plus, it's not expensive for what you get. The exterior is solid in color but the texture is like a cross-hatch, maybe. Msybe this is so it won't show scratches. The size is exactly as advertised--no oversize or overweight charges.
When you're on a trip, you have to trust your bags to handle everything you own, practically. That's one of the reasons, I think, why it's so disconcerting to travel. They take your bags with all your good stuff, and hand you a little sticker. This luggage can be trusted. It wheels perfectly on any surface. You can wheel it ahead of you down the aisle of the plane. The small one fits perfectly in the overhead bin (I didn't try it under the seat in front of me).
I can't think of anything else to help you out. It's just as advertised, it's perfect. (I'm giving all our old bags to Goodwill--this is all we could need, in my opinion.) Buy this luggage. You won't regret it.
How accurate was the sizing? Perfect match for what was in the description. Not oversize on airlines.

The new set of luggage went on a cruise and worked very well. Very easy to navigate, alone and with the large and small hooked together. I did find that it was easier to set the handles to the same height, put them back to back and push together than to dig the strap out to hook them together- It usually isn't that far from luggage claim to the taxi so quicker to just go.
I thought the purple in the picture is more blue than the true color, it is a bit lighter and more purple. I was very pleased with the color and the purple color was very easy to spot on the luggage carousel.
The diamond finish doesn't show the small scrapes and nicks it incurred while behind the scenes at the airport, it still looks brand new. A small white scuff from handling wiped off with a damp cloth. I was pleased with how well it survived the airport and cruiseport handling.
The material seems stiffer than most I have looked at in stores and hopefully that translates to holding up better in the long run, wheels roll smoothly, lock was easy to set, nest inside each other easily, the small one is a bit wobbly when expanded.
One thing I didn't like (just my preference) was having to put the carry on up in the bins. I prefer to put my carry on below the seat in front of me so I can reach my book, my Ipod, my deck of cards, etc. The small one is good for weekend getaways, the large one held everything-not expanded-for my 8 day cruise (dive fins too) and weighed in at 48-49 pounds, and I haven't used the medium one yet. Overall very pleased with the set and color.

The luggage was very nice-looking and seemed sturdy when I received it. However, after a single air trip in May 2013 (luggage purchased in March 2013) the luggage arrived at its destination with three circular holes in the side where rain had seeped into the suitcase through to my clothing. I was confused when I saw the holes as they were same-sized and perfectly shaped so I thought perhaps the TSA had drilled the holes in the luggage to examine it). On closer inspection, and after comparing to the carry-on piece, I realized that the holes were the remnants of the luggage's brand name "Traveler's Choice" coming off the luggage during handling.
It is a strange thing to have three holes pierced in a suitcase to attach brand identification - particularly when it appeared to have been GLUED ON. This is not the type of thing one would expect with luggage which is subject to heavy handling during transportation on flights. Needless to say, the suitcase is now useless because of these three holes. It appears that eventually the same thing will happen with the other pieces as they are processed by baggage handlers over time.
I went to the store over the weekend to compare this set to other similar ones, and saw none that had brand names attached to the body in the way this brand did. This is a defect which needs to be corrected before future pieces are sold!!!.
My recommendation is "BUYER BEWARE."
How accurate was the sizing? Accurate as described
Please tell us about the quality of the product. The material of which the luggage is made appears fairly durable
Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? The main defect was that the luggage brand name is placed on the luggage by a boring process which is not secure and comes off with handling
I bought the purple luggage, and I was a little afraid because I travel several times a month for business, and I mock people with crazy, bright luggage. The color is exactly as shown, more of a blue-purple than bright purple. It looks really nice.
The quality of this luggage is quite good. It's sturdy, and the zippers are good. I have used the medium-sized luggage 3 times, and it shows no signs of wear. Because the luggage is matte, it doesn't scuff as easily as my last luggage. Overall, I'm quite pleased with it so far.

after returning from a transatlantic cruise we determined that our softside luggage would not work for us. while in the airport in Barcelona we saw some very neat hard sided spinner luggage...but the price was very high ***-*** euros each..what we have is everything we wanted and at a fraction of the price
Love the deep purple color of this luggage set and got it for a great price! Highly recommended. Used the large suit case and it did scuff a little when it came down the baggage claim, but it was fully packed so I think the weight of it was probably excessive for the baggage handler. I have been very pleased by the overall quality and durability of this set. I wanted a hard case set in purple and this set has met all of my expectations!!
I bought this case because I thought it would make a good second set.
I was skeptical because the price was lower than many of the others.
But i took a chance.
On the very first trip I was wheeling it with the handle extended,and it twisted over and the handle bent when I tried to hold it from falling.
It was not any abuse on my part I was wheeling it as normal. And it was not a lot of force.
I called Overstock and they said since it was more than 2 months I had to call the company direct.
I have a 2nd set so I did not even take it out of the box for 2 months.
So I am in the process of doing that.
This seems like a cheap poorly made with poor material case.
I would not buy this again,and hope I can get somewhere with the company.

Are the suitcases four wheels or two?
Can a man that is 6 feet and wide fit clothes, shoes, and essentials in the 25"?
Will the 29" be an extra cost because of its height or its10lbs plus weight of packed items?detroillions on Nov 19, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your questions, detroillions. The suitcases actually have 4 dual wheels on each case, for smoother and quieter rolling. It would really depend on how many days you'll be traveling but I sure it holds quite a lot. The third question, it depends on the airline your using, but a couple of other customers said they had no problems with being charged extra. I hope this helps, and thanks for shopping with us. overstockcustomercare1 on Nov 26, 2013

I just received my Traveler Choice 3 piece set. It has the combination lock. My question is, does the lock need to have something attached to it to lock or is it supposed to lock by itself once combination is set. Nothing came with the set if it has an attachment. If the answer is no, then please tell me how to lock my luggage. on Sep 1, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
