I like to play chess in the park - sometimes it can be windy and there are always folks stopping by to watch. For this environment it's good to have a larger board with heavier pieces. Sometimes I'll venture into the universe of speed chess where one doesn't want to spend time picking at tiny pieces, and crawling around under the table later to find them. It's much easier to quickly grab and chuck these pieces off to the side.

The pieces can definitely handle some rough speed chess, and the board requires very little cleaning. The bag requires very little cleaning and is quite durable. It can hold a few small things including a chess clock. When I'm riding the subway with it I'll catch people staring at the bag wondering what it is. A pool cue? gun? set of knives? If someone looks really confused I will turn the bag over so they can see the word CHESS written on it. They almost always laugh, and smile at me.

Overall, the set is good. However, the chess mat is quite thin and when received, it was folded which led to creases in the mat. I would suggest rolling it to try and get the creases out. The pieces are nice and big, although could use a little more weight. The travel bag is nice and light.

Not too heavy, not to light.
Some are black, some are white.
The pieces, I mean, and the board I guess too.
I would buy this one again, if I were you.

Another review the set contains a plastic cylinder to keep the board from being flattened -- that was NOT true for the set I received. The board seems to easily get bent out of shape. The pieces are nice.

9 of 10 people found the following review helpful By Rich from OBC on October 8, 2011
The only reason I am giving this a three instead of a four overall is that it was advertised as "solid" when it is not. I have a solid set (not triple-weighted, just solid plastic) and it is great.

This set is single weighted, so durable; and I would recommend it, but it is not solid plastic: it is hollowed a little on the bottom. Still durable, very usable and better than what you will get at any department store. This set is similar to any single-weighted set you would get from the US Chess Federation [...]

For kids, I prefer single-weighted to triple-weighted pieces as I have seen triple-weighted break more often than single weighted (the weight on the bottom of the triple-weighted sometimes comes out, and the top sometimes breaks from children's rough handling).

In the meantime, i am still looking for another solid plastic set...

My grandson (7.5 years old)for whom we bought this set likes it very much and proudly takes it to the many chess competitions he participates in. I have to add that there was a significant delay in the delivery of the set which was explained by the seller as "problems with the customs". The seller refunded us for the shipment costs and also sent a letter of appology to my grandson which was much appreciated.

It is the standard chess set with its canvas bag. I liked it. The pieces are well-designed and there is also one extra Queen for white and black pieces! I recommend to the chess club teachers.

Item exactly as described. I am very satisfied with my purchase. The only downside is that the pieces are not weighted. Besides, the set is great for my purposes.
