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.
These suit cases are even prettier than the picture! They look so rich, the color is lovely, and the brown leather sets off the design beautifully! The interior fabric is lovely as well. And I love the expandable top - it's just what I need to pack my pillow too. They do take a couple of weeks to air out the new smell, so order in advance of when you need to use them. I used the large bag recently, it was a pleasure, and I smile every time I look at them. Very lovely!
I purchased this set to replace the mismatched black suitcases we had gathered and used for years for both business and leisure. Now that retirement is here I wanted fun and visibility. This set provides that. Delivery was quick, and the set arrived in great shape dispite the mangled carton. The only problem was location the carry strap for the duffle. It was in the outside pocket. Since all the pieces nest, storage is not a problem. I found the pieces easy to nest. The largest case held everything I needed for an 8 day vacation as well as 2 jackets for my husband. There was even room for souvenirs. The duffle worked well as my carryon. Due to the nature of this fabric there was some slight fraying on the binding from airline handling- but most of our travel now is not via air so this will not be a problem for us.
I was a little worried about buying a product with no customer reviews, but I read up on other American Flyer luggage set reviews and felt pretty comfortable with what I was seeing as far as quality issues, so I went ahead and ordered this set. Boy, am I glad I did. This set just looks incredible. Very nice quality feel to the wheels, the handles, the material, the zippers, and the workmanship. I can't say enough about it. The wheels glide effortlessly and this luggage just makes you want to pack up and go! The only thing I might change just on first glance is the handle length on some of the bags isn't overly long. Taller people might have issue with that, but for our needs here, it is fine. I love the lining they have included in the bags. Just a little extra that adds alot. Also there are some extra zippered pouches in the lining too, that again, is a small thing but adds alot. Also, unlike other bags I have seen, these bags have an extra grip on each handle in the same material as the bag's body. This is really a nice thing as it makes it more comfortable to handle. As I just got it today (only a few days after ordering it!) I haven't had the chance to try it out yet, but on first glance, I'd say it's a great buy for the money!
