This three-piece luggage set is a reviewer-trusted, affordable solution for weekend getaways, business trips, and any upcoming holiday travels.
Each hardshell suitcase is made of durable, lightweight and impact-resistant materials and has a textured finish to prevent scratches and the look of wear-and-tear.
The smallest 20-inch bag can be used for carry-on travel and the larger 24 and 28-inch suitcases can expand by 20 per cent, saving the day when you buy one too many souvenirs.
Each bag has a side-mounted TSA lock, heavy-duty zippers, and full-zip interior dividers for organization. The best-selling luggage set is available in a whopping 18 colours, including magenta, rose gold, and army green.
13,200 reviews | 4.5 stars
A shopper-favourite among Amazon customers, the three-piece luggage set has earned more than 13,200 reviews and a confidence-inspiring rating of 4.5 stars.
Reviewers give the hardshell set top marks for maneuverability, durability and travel and say the low price tag does not reflect the high quality you're getting.
According to one review, the suitcases contradict the idiom "you get what you pay for."
"All three bags were overweight" when we arrived at their airport, they write. After travelling, hotel changes, walking and overpacking, "the luggage held up extremely well."
"They have already exceeded my expectations," they say; "[I] would buy again!"
The suitcases are "great quality" at a "low price," echoes another shopper. After taking six flights between South Africa and Canada, "there's no breakage" and "they looked almost new."
'Ace for packing'
The "large interior space [is] ace for packing," says a third reviewer. Adding, they're "lightweight," "easy to swivel through tight areas," and have "fun" colour options.
While the suitcases have earned thousands of rave reviews from shoppers, some complain that while the larger two suitcases are expandable, the carry-on bag is not.
"I never realized how much I used the expandable feature until I didn't have it," writes one shopper. It's a "big downfall for me," they add.
A new luggage set can be a notoriously expensive investment; however, it doesn't have to be. According to Amazon shoppers, this three-piece suitcase set is "great quality" and rivals pricier options available. While the set has accumulated more than 9,500 five-star reviews, some caution the carry-on bag does not expand, something to keep in mind if you don't want to check baggage.
