The David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece Luggage Set is a fun and exciting low cost set for all types of traveler. Although it does not come packed full of the features that you have come to expect, it delivers in providing a basic suitcase that can be used to transport your luggage from A to B, in style. In this suitcase set, you will receive four different sized pieces, with a tote bag being the smallest, perfect for keeping items with you as you attend a meeting or travel around. The second smallest is an upright carry on suitcase, ideal for those short trips where a few items of clothing are ideal. The two larger suitcases are more suited for longer stays away from home where you need to take more items with you. Get the complete David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece Luggage Set review in detail from every aspect:
It seems like the designers at David Jones have three things at the forefront of their mind, which are price, style, and space. You can tell straight away that they are attractive-looking suitcases, with a spacious interior. However, they do lack the usual features that modern day travelers would like on a case. With no interior or exterior pockets, they are a streamlined case, giving you minimum features and maximum storage space.
The David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece Luggage Set comes with four pieces, each one as spacious as the last. The tote bag is the smallest of pieces and has a capacity of 10 L. It comes with one main compartment, along with one zip lined pocket on the front, giving you easy access to any items that you place inside. Unlike the Steve Madden ‘Legends’ 3-Piece Set of Expandable Spinners, the three upright suitcases do not come with any exterior pockets, making it harder to access any important travel documents or travel items that you place inside. Inside you will find the main compartment to store your clothing, which is held in place by two straps. You will not find any interior mesh zip-lined pocket, with the focus being on all your items in one place. This may make it harder to pack and unpack, with loose items having the freedom to go wherever they like inside. However, the cases are spacious, with the upright carry on having a capacity of 35 L, the medium case being able to hold 65 L, and the large case having a carrying capacity of a massive 90 L.
It is hard to find a suitcase set that comes with a lot of features and compared to Rosetti Lighten Up Luggage Set, it doesn’t have anywhere near the same amount of modern features that you would expect. On the David Jones set you will find there are no 360-degree spinner wheels, only two inline skate wheels, which make it harder to navigate the airport terminal and place more stress on your arms and shoulders. It does come with a telescopic handle which makes it slightly easier to use, along with carry handles, which allow you to pick them up easily and place then in overhead lockers, the trunk of your car, or anywhere else you would like to store them.
The suitcase set is lacking some features, therefore you would expect it to be on the lighter side compared to the HAUPTSTADTKOFFER Ostkreuz Luggage Set. The tote bag weighs in at 2.2 lbs, which is fairly light and should give you more than enough weight allowance left to fit whatever you wish inside. The upright carry on suitcase weighs in at 5.7 lbs, although not the lightest of suitcases, it is not in any way heavy enough for it to impact on the restrictions set by airline carriers. The medium suitcase weighs in at 6.3 lbs, and the large case weighs in at 7.2 lbs. Overall, the suitcases are fairly lightweight and considering the lack of features that is completely understandable. They are great for when you wish to take just a basic case, giving you more allowance to carry heavier items inside.
One of the main balances that luggage manufacturers have to decide upon is price versus quality. If they are looking to produce a low-priced suitcase set, you will expect lower quality parts to be used to keep costs low. This is the case with the David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece Luggage Set. Previous buyers have noted how easy it is to mark and damage when going through the rigors of airport baggage handling. Along with the zips and wheels struggling to keep up with the test of time. Be careful as it could be classed as general wear and tear if one of these gives up earlier than you expect.
The suitcase set comes in a variety of fun and exciting prints, ranging from an Asian elephant print, to colorful names of places around the world. You will easily be able to find a print that is right for you. If you do want to opt for something a little bit more subtle, there is the option of a plain black suitcase set. It is more suitable for business meetings and professional settings, or even if you would like to blend into the world of luggage a little bit more. However, with one of the more outgoing prints, it will be easy to notice coming around on the conveyor belt when waiting for your luggage at the carousel.
In the David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece set you will receive 3 upright suitcases and a tote bag. They are all spacious and give you multiple options to pick the right suitcase for your trip. The travel tote bag measures in at 13.9 x 7 x 11.4 inches, which is quite a bit of room for your items and will fit easily into the requirements for cabin luggage for most airlines. The carry on upright suitcase measures in at 21.3 x 7.9 x 13.4 inches, making it suitable as cabin luggage for most airline carriers both in the US and international. The medium suitcase measures in at 25.6 x 16 x 9 inches, and the largest suitcase measures in at 29 x 10 x 18 inches. All four suitcases are of good size, giving you a range of cases to choose from for your trip.
The David Jones Vintage Print 4 Piece Luggage Set comes with a 10-year limited manufacturer’s warranty. It will cover any defects in the material or manufacturing. However, like most luggage, it will not be covered for excessive use, wear and tear, or misuse.
