    Great Color, Quite Durable, & Spacious, May 10, 2013

    Camille (USA) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    I took a job out of state which requires lots of traveling. So far I have used this luggage for two separate round-trip flights, back to back. Including connection flights, I’d say the luggage has been handled at the airport a total of eight times. I’m pretty sure it’s had a rough enough beating for me to give an accurate review. I’ve got one more flight into New York after this review so I’ll be sure to provide an update later.

    Delivery – I was VERY nervous when my package arrived as the cardboard box it came in had a HUGE hole in it! It looked like someone literally kicked it off the truck, lol. So while opening the box up, I was careful because I thought for sure I would be returning it. I was pleasantly surprised to find the luggage inside with no damage (whew!). Looking back now, that was my first indication of this product’s durability.

    Aesthetics – I ordered the 3 piece set in the purple – LOVE IT. It has a slight metallic finish which gives the color a nice punch. The skin of the luggage has a diamond-grid texture which gives it an overall nice quality look (I’ll try to add a picture so you can see). Whatever color you get I’m sure the finishes add to the entire look (thumbs up for that). The main picture does it no justice. VERY easy to spot in Baggage Claim. I get lots of compliments at the airport :)

    Durability – As stated my luggage has already had a pretty rough beating, with more to come, and it looks great! I’ve listed my points below:

    1. There are scratches? Where? Oh, I see them…
    I actually didn’t find the scratches until a week ago. Due to the textured finish, scratches are difficult to find. It’s also a darker shade of purple, so that helps to hide any wear and tear. Actually the most damage was done on the tiny “Traveler’s Choice” logo where it’s ALL scratched up (which I could care less about).

    2. There are no dents anywhere. Although the hard shell for this luggage is a little flexible, it’s VERY durable. My guess is that this luggage shell was designed with some “give” in order for it to take on impacts. Don’t let the “bend” of the material fool you – very strong stuff.

    3. Spinner wheels move easily and smoothly. Because I am traveling back and forth from California, to Kentucky, and to New York it is an absolute MUST for me to be able to move all around with ease. I currently have two pieces with me, medium and large, which I have dragged through airports and hotels. My legs are tired but my arms feel great, lol. The luggage set comes with with a “belt” attachment where you can connect luggage pieces together – VERY NICE! It works whether I have the cases slanted/angled, or pulling it upright where all four wheels are on the floor. No complaints – well done

    4. Zippers still work and are intact. They run up and down the lines smoothly. I like that the zipper tags/grips are large (about 1 to 1 1/2 inches in length). I haven’t really used the TSA lock included on the luggage yet, simply because I’m a klutz and will figure out a way to lock myself out (scared!). So instead I insert the zipper tags inside the mechanism without a lock code just so my bags wont open while being handled. I’ve had no problems.

    5. Pull handles are durable, however I do get nervous when I stretch them all the way out. They seem like when they’re fully extended, they get a little looser? Now, they are still intact and work fine! This is just an observation.

    Spacious!! – I like the inside compartment with the mesh inserts on the outside of it (difficult to explain so I’ll try to post a picture). Great for putting shoes in, papers, or even jackets. It’s a nice way to keep stuff out the way of your clothes. I was able to store one month’s worth of clothes in the large piece, while my medium piece had papers, shoes, and coats (I have a carry-on too, but only for toiletries, hair brushes/combs, and various personal items. I prefer to keep that kind of stuff on me while traveling).

    Conclusion – I am VERY pleased with this purchase! This is my third time buying a set of luggage, and I have never been this happy all-around. Definitely would recommend this set for anyone. (I put the update in the “Comments” area below)

    Amazing luggage/tremendous value!, December 28, 2012

    I bought a set of the Tasmania luggage in 2012 for my wife, and she absolutely loved it. We were both so impressed with it’s value, features, and durability that I bought a set for myself. The set wasn’t available in black at the time, so I chose navy and she chose purple, which are both lovely. Now that black is available at this price, I’m thinking of purchasing another set. My favorite features are the incorporated TSA locks, quality wheel construction, the interior zippered divider and zippered pockets, plus overall style and durability. My wife just took a trip to Brazil, and you could tell that the baggage handlers were rough, but the luggage stood up very well. We’ve been traveling a lot and comparing our luggage to what others are using. Almost always, we look at each other and say, “I like our luggage better.” I thought not having any external compartments on the luggage would be a major drawback, but I couldn’t be happier. Purchase with confidence!

    I really liked this set. I bought it for a trip to Hawaii, which meant going through many different planes & airports. I love the double wheel system, it made rolling the suitcases so easy! I like the color very much, it is so distinctive; so easy to recognize on the baggage claim belt. They are nice and roomy, though a bit on the heavier side of suitcases in general. My only complaint about them is that sometimes the luggage racks on the plane aren’t big enough to accomodate the carry-on, but this did not happen often. I also felt that the handle on them are a bit flimsy and at times it was hard to roll the suitcase, but this seemed to happen more often with the carry on than the bigger suitcases. Additionally, the hard cover seemed to get scratched rather easily but so far they are rather minor scratches and not overly noticeable. Uipon first receiving it, I did notice a small chemical smell but sprayed the inside with febreeze, closed it back up and 24hrs later I didn’t notice any chemical smell at all. Overall, I’m very happy with this set and am so glad I purchased it. I would highly recommend it to others.
