I bought this set for my trip to Hanoi, Vietnam and China. I got the Gold color - but it really wasn't gold - more of a beige thing. It stands out in the luggage carousel at airport. I was impressed by the simplicity of its look. It is lightweight and the spinner was a great help for moving around. The cases stood the airport handlers in both Vietnam and China, there were just some scratches on the case, but nothing serious. On the way back (China-Boston), however, the zipper broke. I had informed Overstock about it and they took care of my concern right away. They sent me a replacement for the 25-inch which I just received. I believe this luggage can handle travels everywhere, it's just unfortunate that I got one with not a sturdy zipper. However, Overstock.com took care of it right away. Once I have the opportunity to use the luggage again - perhaps next year as I am scheduled to travel to the Philippines, I will write again to let you know how I did with the Traveler's Choice luggage. Overall, I will not hesitate to recommend this luggage to anyone. It's a very good value for your money.
