The Merax Hylas 3 Piece Luggage Set has been designed to accommodate the modern, style-conscious traveler who is on a budget. It has been designed specifically to provide comfort, functionality, reliability, and peace of mind to anyone who purchases this set. Crafted from lightweight ABS material, you can be sure that the shell will not crack or break under stress, providing maximum protection to whatever you decide to travel with. The design looks modern, sleek, and stylish, it will fit into any environment, whether that be the airport, train, a business meeting, or even your office. The set has been designed to fit inside one another when not in use, making it easy to find a place and store these away.
As the Merax suitcase set is hard-sided, it does not have any exterior pockets to store your travel documents or essential travel items. If you need any item that you have packed away in the suitcases, then you will have to sit down, open the full suitcase, and remove the one item that you require. This whole process makes it more difficult to travel with, especially in comparison to unzipping a small pocket and taking out what you require. The suitcases are split 50/50, with one side containing the main compartment for your clothing, along with an x-strap which keeps your clothes neat, organized, and in place throughout your journey. On the other side of the suitcase, you will find a large, deep zip lined pocket, where you will be able to store any loose items, valuables, or anything else you wish to keep separate from your clothing.
The Merax Hylas 3 Piece Luggage Set comes with all the modern features that you would expect on modern-day luggage. Featuring silent, 360-degree spinner wheels, you will no longer have to struggle with the inline skate wheels as found on the US Traveler New Yorker 4 Piece Luggage Set. Your journey will start stress-free, as you glide through the airport terminal with very little effort needed. Be careful if you go onto uneven or carpeted surfaces, as you will then need to use significantly more effort, sometimes even resorting to carrying the suitcase. The telescopic handle will stop and lock in three places, giving you the ability to set it to your perfect height, making it easier and more comfortable to use. There is also a combination lock integrated on the side of each case, although they are not TSA-approved like the ones found on the TravelCross Dublin 5 Piece Luggage Set, so agents will need to damage the case or lock in order to gain access. However, having the locks in the first place will protect your valuable from opportunist thieves in the airport terminal. There are side and top carry handles, making it easier to lift your cases to fit in the overhead lockers, the trunk of your car, or even up and down the stairs.
The carry-on suitcase weighs in at 5.6 lbs, which is very lightweight for a budget suitcase set. This can be attributed to the fact that Merax are working with optimizing only 3 suitcases here, in comparison to Traveler’s Choice Amsterdam 8-Piece Luggage Set, where there are 8 pieces that need to be designed and manufactured. The medium suitcase weighs in at 6.9 lbs, and the large at 8.7 lbs, this suitcase set really is lightweight, so you will have more than enough weight allowance left to pack whatever extra items you desire.
The Merax Hylas 3 Piece Suitcase Set is made from a highly durable ABS material, which ensures that it does not crack, break, or show signs of lasting damage when under stress and strain. As the suitcase set only contains three pieces, Merax has made sure that all three will stand the test of time, having produced three durable pieces. The wheels seem to be well constructed, along with the handle, and other common parts, so you will not be disappointed with how this set handles some of the more rigorous tasks of travel luggage.
The Merax Hylas 3 Piece Luggage Set is a stylish and sophisticated travel companion. It features a unique vertical pattern which is not only attractive, but it will help hide any scratches, scuffs, and marks that are inevitable when going through the airport baggage handling system. Available in six different colors, you will be sure to find one that you find attractive and will suit your current style. You can opt for a more reserved color, which has a glossy finish, making it attractive. Or you could even go for one of the eccentric colors, you will be able to spot your luggage from far away.
The carry-on suitcase measures in at 20.7 x 13.4 x 8.3 inches, which is well within the restrictions imposed by most major airline carriers. If you plan on flying internationally, you may want to check with your airline carrier as restrictions can be more stringent. The medium suitcase measures in at 25 x 15.8 x 9.6 inches, and the large at 28.4 x 18.5 x 11.2 inches. This includes the wheels and handles, so you can be sure that it will fit in your closet, basement, or even trunk of your car without any hassle. This is not the largest suitcase set that you will find, especially with the Fochier 6 Piece Luggage Spinner Set being larger, however, with it being hard sided, you will be able to squash extra clothes and items inside, without having to worry about it expanding.
