After a few years of leaving home and borrowing my mum & dads suitcase every time we went away, they decided to buy me a set for Christmas.
The suitcase is a nice deep plum colour, measures around 65 x 45 x 31cm. One of the benefits of this suitcase is that in actually expands by around another 4cm – I find this a real benefit as even though I bring back less stuff back from holiday with me than I take, I always struggle to fit everything back in. The main compartment of the suitcase is fully lined in a grey polyester, and inside there are two zipped mesh pockets which I find quite handy for putting my toiletries in.
The handle large telescopic handle extends to two different heights; there is just under a foot difference in height between me and my partner so I like this as he doesn’t moan as much when he has to pull them along. The handle feels quite sturdy and locks into place easily, it also does not move from position unless you depress the button on too if the handle. As well as the handle, there is also a grab handle on one of the sides of the case should you wish to carry it this way.
The suitcase weighs just over 3kg when empty, I though this sounds quite heavy however it does actually feel quite light and even when full, I am still able to lift on my own.
The suitcase comes with 4 wheels which rotate 360 degrees. I was a bit dubious about using this at first as I was used to two-wheeled trolleys but I actually find that it was easier to manoeuvre than a two wheeled case. The suitcase also comes with a TSA combination lock, although as we mainly travel in the UK, I have not had any need to use this. TSA is recognised abroad, particularly in the USA as the airline/airport staff have a specific tool to open these so you don’t have to leave your case open for the journey.
We have had the cases for a few years now, used on numerous occasions and they are wearing very well, the corners have rubber on to protect from damage and so far, have done a good job. The suitcase comes with a 10 year warranty and I can see why they provide this as I cannot see any problems occurring.
Overall I would only give 4 out of 5 stars due to the price.
