I purchased this set for an upcoming flight because I needed additional luggage. I loaded my belongings up and after my two hour flight, MY HANDLE WAS DANGLING FROM THE LUGGAGE LIKE A LOOSE TOOTH!! I couldn't even use the handle to move my luggage off the carousel! And none of my luggage would stay standing AT ALL! I suspect it had something to do with the luggage being expandable... but if it's expandable, maybe that should be taken into account when making the luggage!! That was SOO frustrating, if i wanted to stop for just a second my luggage would just topple over! However, the worst part about the set is the ruined handle... it was on the largest one, and now I can't even use it anymore AFTER ONE TRIP!!! What a waste. The fact that the retractable handle on the other one hardly ever worked barely bothered me compared to them all falling over and the big one breaking on MY FIRST TRIP WITH IT.
- How accurate was the sizing? I didn't really notice.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. TERRIBLE!
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? not sure... but the handle broke immediately
After using the set two times, and collecting our luggage at the airport, the top handles on the large bags came off on one side. The screw that holds it in place from the inside of the bag appears to have just pulled out when the baggage handlers picked up the luggage. Dissappointed at this. OK for travel in a car, but definiately doesn't hold up to the airlines abuse.
- How accurate was the sizing? good
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. fair at best.
This was a graduation present. My nephew loved the set, said it worked just fine for him.
- How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Seems to be fine.
- Was the product free of any manufacturer defects? As far as I could tell.
I have not used them for what I gotten them for yet that will be in May, but I have let my 4 and 5 year old play with the smaller ones and so far so good. We have looked at luggage in the stores (TJMAX, Sears ect) and the cost for one large suitcase was 10 or more $$$'s higher then this whole set, and was the same quality. With having kids I look for great deals and this one is worth it.
After just 1 recent flight, the fabric on the back corner area got torn. I'm very disappointed. I should have known better. This breaks too easily. This may be great for you if you plan to travel by car, but it will not survive the luggage handlers.
I ordered both a red and black set for myself and my fiance's honeymoon. The price of both is GREAT and the red one was perfect. Unfortunately, the pull-up handle on the black one sticks a bit. It was still a great buy and will hopefully serve it's purpose on our trip. I would definitely recommend it to anyone because you get so much for an excellent price.
