The stylish design is very attractive, featuring horizontal stripes which portray the suitcase set as stylish, modern, and sleek. Each of the suitcases is equipped with four-spinner wheels and a telescopic handle, resulting in a much easier and more enjoyable experience when in use. As with all spinner wheels, they work amazingly on hard surfaces which are flat, however, if you take them onto uneven or carpeted surfaces you will soon find yourself in a bit of trouble. Mounted on the side of each of the suitcases is an integrated lock, allowing you to keep your valuables locked away and secured without the need to worry where you last put your suitcase lock.
The smaller suitcase has been designed to be used as cabin luggage, if you are traveling with valuables or a laptop it would be best served in this suitcase. As with all hard-sided suitcases, you will not find exterior pockets, which means that you have to open up your suitcase if you need to get to any travel items or documents, this may be a hassle when you wish that your paperwork was easier to reach. Inside the suitcases you will find a zip-lined mesh pocket, allowing you to store loose items and those that you need quick access to. The mesh will keep your items separate from your clothes and keep your suitcase neat and tidy when in use. The other side of the 50/50 split features the main compartment for your clothes, it comes with an x-strap, keeping your clothing secure and in place throughout the journey.

The combination of polycarbonate and ABS ensure that the suitcases are lightweight and durable so that your items will not get damaged and your suitcase should last at least a few trips.
The carry-on weighs in at 5.7 lbs, which is rather lightweight for a carry-on, it is not the lightest carry-on you can find, as on the market today you will be able to see the newest ultra-lightweight carry on the market.
