This was our first time buying hard-case luggage and it was purchased for a cruise so the sturdy suitcases made it through 2 flights and on/off the boat with only a few marks, but that was expected. Love that we only saw ONE other piece of luggage with this awesome color so extremely easy to find in baggage claim! :)
You will not believe how many compliments you will get carrying this luggage around. People stopped me a lot as I moved through the airport. Durability is still a question mark. The luggage, after the trip, was scuffed which I was able to wash off, but the back of the luggage was scratched. There is also an adjustment to hard-sided luggage. I'm used to having pockets on the outside of luggage for tickets, snacks, etc... but hard-sided luggage has nothing, so you either have to carry something else or open the smaller case every time you want to access something. I'm not sure I'll opt for hard-sided in the future.
Our first time using this set was a two week vacation in Europe. Three days in, the wheel on the handle-side of the largest suitcase stopped spinning and we had to carry the large case around the rest of the two weeks. The other two cases have worked great, but now we only use the largest for car trips so we don't have to carry it around an airport or city streets - since it's unable to roll anymore.
I have used this set of luggage several times over the last 4 years and this luggage has served me just fine. It is nothing fancy, but I wasn't looking for fancy. The bright colors are great! Makes finding luggage at airport pick-up so much easier. I have not had any problems with function on any of the 3 cases. Wheels, zippers and handles all function as expected.
