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!)
I received my luggage about 1 month ago. It is very lovely and very much as I expected it to be. It is easy to maneuver because of the "four wheel drive." Spinner luggage feature. It is easy to Identify when it is coming along on the airport conveyor belt because of the fabric design and color. I go to India quite often and I like the little elephant designs on the fabric. The only problems that I have found with it, is that it is fraying, slightly on the bindings. I am hoping that it doesn't wear out too soon around these critical areas. Also, it is difficult to put the luggage pieces inside of one another after use, because the zippers are recessed on the top of the luggage rather than on the edges. Other than those 2 problems, I am pretty well satisfied with my new American Flyer luggage. The price was right, and the delivery time was perfect.
I have been looking for a handy, small travel satchel for some time and had almost given up hope of ever finding one. The American Flyer Tote is nearly perfect. I just completed a 3 week vacation trip by car and I will now be ordering one for my wife.
I bought this luggage because I really wanted spinners that were fairly stylish and not too expensive. Based on all the other great reviews I thought this American Flyer set would be perfect. Well, since I got the set I've only used one piece (the pull-along duffle) and its... ok. The other pieces are fine as well, but the set just didn't look as elegant as I thought it would. So I would recommend, but only for those who really want a set of fairly decent spinners at a good price- not for anyone who really wants very stylish long lasting luggage. I can see that I will be needing a new set much sooner than I had originally expected.
