The new set of luggage went on a cruise and worked very well. Very easy to navigate, alone and with the large and small hooked together. I did find that it was easier to set the handles to the same height, put them back to back and push together than to dig the strap out to hook them together- It usually isn't that far from luggage claim to the taxi so quicker to just go. I thought the purple in the picture is more blue than the true color, it is a bit lighter and more purple. I was very pleased with the color and the purple color was very easy to spot on the luggage carousel. The diamond finish doesn't show the small scrapes and nicks it incurred while behind the scenes at the airport, it still looks brand new. A small white scuff from handling wiped off with a damp cloth. I was pleased with how well it survived the airport and cruiseport handling. The material seems stiffer than most I have looked at in stores and hopefully that translates to holding up better in the long run, wheels roll smoothly, lock was easy to set, nest inside each other easily, the small one is a bit wobbly when expanded. One thing I didn't like (just my preference) was having to put the carry on up in the bins. I prefer to put my carry on below the seat in front of me so I can reach my book, my Ipod, my deck of cards, etc. The small one is good for weekend getaways, the large one held everything-not expanded-for my 8 day cruise (dive fins too) and weighed in at 48-49 pounds, and I haven't used the medium one yet. Overall very pleased with the set and color.
