I really wanted to love this suitcase but as soon as my daughter loaded it up and took it on her first kit she couldn't get the handle down. When the case is empty it works fine but the clothes put pressure on the handle it doesn't work. ARgh.
I wanted a distinct piece of quality luggage, light weight, TSA locks and all the I admit it status that comes with this type of luggage. This luggage fits all those requirements and more. Traveled to NY with this and it was amazing the amount of items this could hold and still not be overweight. I got this in the Gold. The blue looks just as beautiful but thought the gold would be easier to spot. I travel a lot and my only issue is that I had to purchase the 28 in spinner elsewhere to get the set in Gold. I did not need the carry on, hard case carry on's are useless to me. I love the larger case even more! You can register these and there is an app to "follow your bag". awesome for a techie like me. Love, love, love these bags! Not a mark on them from the NY trip, and you know they got banged around. Going to Vegas in January and will be proud to carry these for sure! Did I say I love them? Perfect bag in every way.
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.
I've used this for three trips now. I got the Salmon color. Admittedly, I'm no expert on luggage, but this is my second suitcase I've owned. The first one I got in high school and lasted me 20 years. It actually still works great, it's just that one of the wheels has a chunk missing from it so it makes some noise as it rolls. I decided to get this one because I wanted to get a pair of matching suit cases for me and my wife, who previously didn't own a suitcase. I specifically bought this one because I liked the colors, it looked rugged from the pictures, the price was great, and my wife also needed a duffel bag. Pros: - The wheels seem to be great for rough surfaces. - I love the color - As advertised, the size is perfect for carry-on - So far, it's holding up without any problems - Great price (I paid $60) Cons: - The material collected a lot of dirt from the airplane cargo bay - If I pack something heavy, like my 17" laptop, on the top of the luggage, it doesn't sit upright. It falls forward. - Though I said it's holding up, the inner liner seems like thin plastic and I won't be surprised if it rips soon. The zipper doesn't seem rugged enough. And the retractable handle seems flimsy. Time will tell. - I've pinched my finger in the retractable handle a few times. - The duffel bag could be a few inches bigger.
