We travel a great deal and are always looking for luggage that can survive the abuse of airline handlers. We always end up getting back bags with missing wheels, handles, torn zippers, or worse things broken and hanging out! This set of luggage is awesome! Really heavy duty but nice looking. The wheels are very sturdy and multi-directional so you can push it or pull it in any direction. The zippers and hard case are very sturdy and you can transport delicate items with out worry of damage. This was an incredible deal! Highly recommended for people who travel a lot or who transport breakables.
I was apprehensive about this luggage set due to prior reviews I had read regarding the durability of the luggage. We have since used the luggage twice, one overseas flight and one domestic flight. We observed the larger one being thrown, the wheel knocked into heavily, and it survived the trip. It does have a few dents but no cracks in the case as previously mentioned in reviews. The smaller one survives much better, probably due to people aren't as tempted to throw it around as easily. We did take someone's advice by filling it rather full to decrease the potential for the case to crack. Due to this, the large one just made the weight restriction for the airline. We did find the multi-directional wheels very useful. Overall, I think we are pleased with the product.
Although the set looks amazing, the shell is pretty thin and the inside is very spartan. My girlfriend had given me an old hardshell case of hers and, even though it was pretty dated, it felt a lot more solid. First of all, the set uses zippers instead of a latch. I guess there's less chance of it breaking, but it just seems cheap. The hardshell case is pretty flexible. It will probably stand up to a decent amount of abuse, and because it's flexible it might actually take it better than a harder case... but in general it doesn't make it feel very durable. The internals are spartan at best. Just some tie-down straps. No compartments. I guess that's to be expected in a set of luggage like this. Also, the sizes are a bit off. The big one is very big, the middle one is a little small for a multi-day trip. The little one is really small. Maybe overnight, 2 day if you pack light. Overall I'm not super happy with this purchase, but it'd cost too much to send it back. Oh well. But it does _look_ nice!
