We needed new carry- ons for airline travel plus our larger pullman cases had taken a beating from the luggage carousels with zippers broken or smashed to the point they wouldn't even open. Very happily surprised at this set of "no -name brand" luggage. The set is extremely sturdy and zippers seem to be heavy duty type. Interesting design in that the zippered portion is "set back" from the frame edge by about an inch which hopefully will prevent that zipper mangling. They are roomy with lots of pockets and stretchy bands - the rolling duffel and tote were bonuses too. Handles deploy easily but also detract too easily because the locking mechanism is on the top so when you push the bag you tend to push the lock down. Rollers are smooth but will probably be the first part to break as they appear to be all plastic. All in all - a really good buy as we priced name brand luggage in discount stores and would have gotten only one carry-on for just slightly less than this set.
Just purchased two sets--in blue and grey. Both colors are very nice. The hardside pieces seems strong enough yet lightweight. The extendable handles do seem sturdy enough. There is additionally a carry handle on both the top and side which seem like they might break off if used a lot and the luggage is packed with a lot of heavy contents. I also very much like the tote bag because of the strap on the back which allows it to be slid over the extendable handles of the hardside luggage, and it won't flop around as you walk through the airport. I personally am not sure that I will use the packing cubes at all. I will be using the hardside luggage and tote on a cruise and flight soon and will try to update my review after use.
I travel for work continuously and my luggage takes a beating. I have neck problems so I prefer spinner sets to decrease the amount of load that I place while having to tote luggage around. The weekender bag and the smaller carry-on suitcase get the most use and after 2 years, are starting to get frayed. I have had many compliments on these bags and I highly recommend them. You can't get better value for the price! BUY THEM!
