Finally got the chance to use this luggage set. Just spent nearly a month touring Europe with this set. We flew to Paris from Chicago. Then we flew from Paris to Madrid and then from Madrid to Rome. Then we took trains all over Italy, a cruise throughout Greece and some other stops in Monaco and France. We carried not only enough clothes for a long trip but we also got married in the Greek Islands so we also had a wedding gown and tux in here as well. To say that our luggage needed to be spacious, easily maneuverable, and strong enough to bear up to that much travel without wrecking our clothes is an understatement. We chose Samsonite as my previous set was 16 years old and still going strong. To see how the all wheel luggage performed we went to a nearby Samsonite store. The ultra lite series seemed entirely too flimsy for our needs and we decided on this set. I read all the reviews online and, despite being concerned about the one review I saw about the large bag being beyond regulation size, I ordered this set. Now on the other side of our trip I can tell you not once did any airline mention the bag's total dimensions (to be honest I've never seen an airline baggage handler with a tape measure and really think they only care if it makes weight) and how many times we discussed during the trip how great this luggage set had performed. We planned at the start that we would pack without unzipping the 2" extensions to start and would know we had bought enough souvenirs once all three bags had been extended. It all worked exactly as planned. The bags were sturdy and well balanced. We were easily able to put our backpacks and carryon bags on top of these and not need to keep a hold of them to keep them from tipping. We did get one scratch on the large bag but it is not really noticeable. Hope this long review helps as I was on the fence from the previous reviews on whether to buy or not and knew I would give this set the great review it deserved once home.
