Design

The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set has been designed for one thing in mind, the adventurer. When going on an adventure you don’t necessarily need the most modern and up-to-date technology, but you do need support, confidence, and trust that your luggage will be there with you every step of the way, and Columbia surely does provide just that. As you can see, when first looking at this suitcase set is how easy they are to spot with the range of bright colors and iconic branding, as well as how durable they are. The suitcases do not open like how you would expect, there is a U-shaped zip, with only the bottom being the hinge. This design gives you easier access to pack and unpack, keeping clothing tidier, and the ability to get to something that would otherwise be difficult. The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set is a lightweight and durable set, allowing you to easily take it anywhere you need to, without having to worry whether it will fail you when traversing the busy Asian streets.

Storage

On the outside of each of the three suitcases you will find an exterior front pocket, that will give you easy access to any travel documents or travel essentials that you place inside. Once inside the suitcase, there is a fully lined, large main compartment for your clothing, as well as valet straps to ensure that your clothing arrives in the same condition that you packed it in. On the inside, you will find that there are two zip-lined pockets, one large one on the inside of the lid, and next to the main compartment. You will easily be able to store and loose items or valuables inside these, ensuring that nothing gets broken or lost during transit. Unlike the Rockland Luggage Skate Wheels 4 Piece Luggage Set, the suitcases do not expand, although as they are soft-sided, you should be able to squeeze a few more items in due to the flexibility of the material.

Features

The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set comes with some features that you would expect, however, it does not contain anywhere near the number of features found on the Pathfinder Luggage Presidential 4 Piece Spinner Suitcase Set. Firstly, and possibly one of the most important is that the suitcase set only comes with inline skate wheels, meaning it is harder to control and navigate with, placing more strain and stress on your arms and shoulders. One of the main features is the durable and lightweight construction, which Columbia has ensured all the stress points are reinforced for added durability. The ultra-lightweight fabric is not only bright and bold, it is water repellant. Allowing you to stay out in the rain, even during the monsoons, without a thought in your mind about whether your suitcase can handle such a time. It really is a no-frill suitcase set that has decided to go ahead and produces a luggage option for people who want it to last a long time and follow them through any terrain.

Weight

The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set, has been designed to be lightweight, from the choice of fabric, down to the structure and frame. The carry-on suitcase weighs in at only 5.5 lbs, which is very lightweight. The medium suitcase weighs in at 6.55 lbs, and the large suitcase weighs in at 7.9 lbs. The suitcase set is exactly what it states, lightweight, and compared to the Nautica Open Seas 5 Piece Luggage Set which is an average weighted suitcase set, it really is.

Durability

The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set has been designed and manufactured using the best materials, ensuring that a strong, lightweight, but durable suitcase set is by your side when you need it most. Previous buyers have noted how strong and durable the suitcase set is, along with how the wheels seem sturdy and unlike many other suitcase sets that feel flimsy and may break. Although, some people have noted about the fact that the fabric starts to show signs of wear fairly quickly, however, this seems very unlike Columbia, and it would be best to check the quality of your set before you start using it. Just like the rest of their apparel, Columbia has produced a hard-wearing suitcase set that has been designed to perform even in the toughest conditions.

Style

You will either love or hate this suitcase set, as it is bold, bright, and eye-catching. It is nothing like your typical suitcase set, it does not showcase a classic look. It does the exact opposite and appeals to the younger audience, or at least the young at heart. Available in a wide range of colors, each one has either a neon or bright color, especially on the details that really do make it stand out. It is certain that you will have no trouble at all spotting the suitcases going around the carousel among the sea of boring black bags.

Size

The carry-on upright suitcase measures in at 20.5 x 14 x 8.5 inches, which is well within the restrictions that airline carriers place on cabin luggage. As it is flexible, it would be worth noting to check and make sure that there is nothing sticking out and it is flat before taking on board, as you may struggle to fit it in the overhead locker. The medium suitcase measures in at 25.75 x 15.5 x 11.25 inches, and the large suitcase at 29.75 x 17.25 x 12.9 inches. All three suitcases are of good size, and when not in use can be easily stored away by placing inside one another.

Warranty

The Columbia Chill Out Three Piece Rolling Luggage Set comes with a limited lifetime warranty, which will protect the luggage set from material and manufacturing defects. However, this does not cover excessive use, wear and tear, and misuse. If you are looking for this to last a long time, then do not overpack it, or place any unnecessary strain and it should be with your trusted travel companion for many years to come.
