I purchased this set as a Christmas gift for my parents. I gave them the set early for their trip to Hawaii and they absolutely loved it. The large case was roomy enough to fit snorkle gear and all other items with room to spare for items they brought home. Also the smallest of the cases was still small enough to carry on the plane with them. The actual carry on is very small but my mom felt this was perfect because she couldn't carry anything too heavy due to a back injury. They said the luggage held up great from their trip. So far I would definately recommend this set.
