I had one of these suite cases for more than 2 years and wanted to get a second one for my husband to use (needed to replace his old one). These are great!. Perfect carry on size, roll nicely through the airport with shoulder bag on top, and I love the fact they it does expand (even though it is a hard side) for when I "over buy" things to bring home on vacation. I have had to check these a few times as well and they have thus far taken all the abuse the airport bag handlers dish out with only minor scuffs here and there. Would certainly recommend. One thing different on this one I did notice is One side has a band that snaps together to hold your stuff on that side, the other side actually has a zippered cover that holds your items in snug where nothing can fling around. However the zippered side is set down from the top edge of the bag a bit so you actually loose about 1" or so of space to put stuff on this side inside the zipper. (My old one is not like this, the zippered cover is right at the top of the bag on this side). I usually use this space to lay sandals or such, but it would have been nice if they had the zippered closure closer to the top edge.
Great quality but not happy with the design. It may be good for just an overnight bag instead of a weekend bag. Not much space in the top compartment for all I need to take with me for a weekend. And of course I cannot rate it's durability since I just purchased the set of luggage.
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.
I bought this luggage set for my 12 year old daughter. We are going on a cruise in a few weeks and the last time she has done any major traveling was 7 years ago. Needless to say she had outgrown her old set and it was falling apart. I needed to get her a set that was durable could last her for a while and she had one request that it had to be pink. I didn't want to spend a lot of money on luggage for a 12 year old but also wanted quality. This luggage set is awesome and extremely light weight. The sizes are also good also. To explain the size we will be cruising for 7 days which means about 14 sets of clothes and 4 pairs of shoes. The large size was too large. In all honesty we could have shared the large suitcase. However, she wanted her own and me adding my clothes could have placed us over the 50 pound weight limit. I was able to pack her 14 pairs of clothes, underclothes, PJs and three pairs of shoes in the middle size with space remaining. At the top of the suitcase is a zip section where we placed he shoes and toiletries in, that did not take away from suitcase space. I travel quite often and my luggage is heavy and bulky so I'm thinking about purchasing the purple set for myself. Trust me you will not be disappointed in the product. I only have one not really negative comment and that is the small case is too large as a carryon in my opinion unless you are not checking luggage. I would suggest that they have a real carry on bag. Needless to say I found one that matches perfect so I will not rate it lower based on that one issue.
