I just got back from a 7 day business trip from Boston, MA to London, England and this bag fit much more than I had expected based on initial visual assessments. I loved having 2 separate sides to the suitcase rather than one large compartment, and as some soft sided luggage has. Particularly useful when returning home and you want to separate shoes and dirty laundry from other items. I was able to pack the following and the suitcase wasn't at the top of its capacity:
1 pair tall, leather boots
1 pair high heeled ankle boots
1 pair ballet flats
1 pair high heeled pumps
1 pair slippers
1 pair of dress pants
3 pairs of yoga pants
3 cotton long sleeved ts
2 pairs pjs
X-large toiletry kit
Black color that I ordered is high gloss which helps mask any scratches. Outside wipes down easily. For a 28" suitcase it feels exceptionally lightweight compared with nylon, soft sided luggage z this is great for me as a woman when I need to lift the bag for storage or to get the bag on/off a conveyor belt. Wheels glide really easily. You can roll the bag traditionally where you tilt it towards you and pull on 2 wheels or you can keep it flat and wheel beside you on all 4 wheels. I preferred the latter. Telescoping handle is strong enough to support my laptop bag for my large, but 17.3" laptop. I also looped on a soft duffel bag and there was no interruption in gliding the wheels. Great that I could pile all my luggage and so easily push it all around.
Bag did get a few scratches after 2 transatlantic flights.Read more ›
There are cheaper options for hardshell luggage. But, if you want Samsonite quality you have to pay for it.
Following our return flight these cases arrived in good shape - sure they will get scuffed etc by baggage handlers but they maintain integrity and are a delight to travel with (especially if like me your cases are fully loaded!). Ideally I would have bought the super lightweight Comsolite cases from Samsonite but they are 3 times the price for minimal difference. TSA locks are easy to use too. These cases are made of polycarbonate which to the uneducated can appear flimsy - rest assured they are tough and hopefully will last for many years to come.
We have the silver cases and, like others have said, they do show scuffs and wear a lot, but I think all of the pro's of the cases outweigh this one con. The only kind of suitcase that won't show all of the scuffs and damage of air travel are the ones with cloth on the outside and those tend to be heavier and not as sturdy when it comes to protecting your belongings. I like knowing my things are surrounded by something hard. I also like knowing I am not paying extra or having to leave things out because I have heavy suitcases.
If you don't mind the scuffing and signs of damage, then these are the cases for you. If you expect your suitcase to look new for a long time and you don't fly very much, do not buy these, at least not in silver, as you will be disappointed. Overall, I LOVE them!
On our return, my wife picked up her suitcase and a large chunk of plastic fell off the case. The price for these was pretty low but I would have hoped that they would have lasted more than one trip.
I'm reviewing the warranty as I write and hoping to return them. I would have given this zero stars but one can't. )-:
Update - October 2, 2013 - So, I'm past the 30-day return on Amazon and Samsonite doesn't seem to stand behind its products. Hate to just write off $300 but I guess Samsonite is added to the list of vendors I will never do business with again.
