  • Didn't hold up to first trip
    Verified Purchase

    We bought the burgundy set of luggage but it didn't hold up to the first time it was checked as baggage. The overnight bag wheel broke. The handles on the two larger bags started to stick after one day of travel. By the end of our week-long trip, the largest bag's handle wouldn't come back out. Not very sturdy.

  • For the price it works
    Verified Purchase

    The sides are not well supported and can collaspe. The wheels roll well. They are light weight enough that even the larger case can be handled when full.

  • Great value!
    Verified Purchase

    I researched a lot of luggage before making this purchase. I could not find anything that compared in quality for the price. I look forward to getting years of use from this set!

  • First use bag fell apart
    Verified Purchase

    We bought this set of bags to replace another set of Traveler's Choice bags purchased 11 years ago. The first time we used them the seam attaching the back of the bag to the side completely ripped apart all the way across the top of the bag. The only thing holding the bag together was the inside liner. After a roll of duct tape I was able to get the bag home, but it was incredibly disappointing to see the bag fall apart after just one use.

  • way too heavy
    Verified Purchase

    These are nice, but you can't put anything in them & get them on a plane without paying any additional $50 everytime you check them. Coming home the large suit case was partially empty with nothing in the garmet bag portion of the lid and it was just under 50lbs.

  • This luggage far exceeded our expectations. Well made, well engineered, lots of pockets and other great options. We are condsiering other pieces from the same manufacturer, also with the ballistic nylon - a must. Great price. Thanks!

  • Trav Choice El Durado Lugg Collection
    Verified Purchase

    I bought this luggage set in peparation for a long trip, and have used it once so far, on that trip. The bags are sturdy, and held up well to airline baggage handling. (I used all 3 pieces.) Based on its perfomance on my recent trip, I expect this luggage will last several years. Each of the three suitcases in the set has lots of inner and outer pockets, and very good features for expandability. The largest suitcase is very large indeed, and I probably won't use it very often--when packed fully with basic clothing (not anything super-heavy), it easily exceeds most airlines' 50-55 pound weight limits for checked baggage. I ended up paying $25 extra to check the large bag on both AirCanada and Northwest. (I didn't mind this, personally, but that is something to consider before buying/using this large piece.) I will probably use the middle and small suitcases the most, and save the biggest one for long trips of 2 weeks or more. On a final note, the suitcases were offered in 2 colors--black, and reddish. I got the black, but in retrospect, I wish I'd gotten red--that would have made them much easier to spot on the luggage conveyer at the airport!

  • Good Materials; Poor Craftsmanship
    Verified Purchase

    I have heard great things about Ballistic Nylon luggage and this set looked like an amazing deal. When I received the bags, they looked great, felt great, and had many great features - especially the built in garment bags. I was very happy with my purchase - until I actually used one of the bags. I took the 29" bag on a trip to Beijing. It was plenty big enough for my contents, I didn't have to stuff it, sit on it to close it, or even use the expander. The bag itself weighs close to 20 pounds, and the packed bag was just over 50 pounds. When the bag came out at baggage claim in Beijing, I saw torn seams and some of my clothing sticking out! First I thought the zipper must have broke. The zippers were just fine, but the seams that connect the zippers to the bag had broken and separated in 2 corners - about 8-10 inch splits in both sections. I don't understand why you would use "ballistic nylon" and heavy duty self fixing zippers, and then have a single stitch of low quality thread holding it all together. I immediately returned the set. This luggage set had so much going for it, if only they would have given a little more thought to the craftsmanship.

  • You'll need to purchase another carryon piece
    Verified Purchase

    The luggage is great! I was so impressed with the quality. Very rugged. I used it on my trip to Italy and it worked well. It had the usual scuffs but no rips or tears. The only complaint I have is that the piece that is supposed to be well within carryon limits is NOT. I had to find this out the hard way at the ticket counter. I then had to go to the side and try frantically to fit my essential items in my purse and my husband's carryon. I had to end up checking this piece. It would not fit into the wire rack that represents the acceptable carryon size. I was very upset about the fact that the carryon piece was too large. Overall, I would purchase this set again. Great value for the money, but again, it would have been nice to know ahead of time that the dimensions for the carryon were not accurate.
