in this day and age, with luggage getting wrecked during travel - my husband and i took on the attitude that we wanted cheaper stuff that would do the job, last long enough, and not have us paying for fancy looks or accessories! this luggage fit the bill. we got the full set plus this 2nd big sized one. we have used 2 large ones and small shoulder bag thus far for airline travel and only 1 of the pull up handles that you pull the luggage with broke! not too bad - and only better since i was able to contact travel select and they sent me a new one free of charge!
