This luggage set is truly beautiful and that's the first thing that caught my eye. Then there was the price and variety of pieces including the carpet bag which is quite unique. The carpet bag is not a piece you can sling over your shoulder but is great for short weekend trips in and out of the car. The expanding ability it great and the pockets, etc. inside are handy. My only disappointment is that the two larger bags were advertised as "spinners" and they are not. While I really wanted this feature, once I received the bags and used them, all was fine.
