The Traveler’s Choice Luggage Set has been designed with the organized traveler in mind. It is definitely for those who like to stay in control of their luggage on the go, with it complimenting their already organized style with four packing cubes, enabling you to pack more inside the suitcase. Packing cubes have become more and more popular in recent years, they allow you to pack even more items inside your suitcase, with them fitting neatly together. The cases are made out of a luxurious 1200D two-tone polyester fabric, which is strong and durable. Each of the cases contains numerous interior and exterior pockets, allowing you to store more items in easy to reach places, so when you are on the move and need quick access to your belongings, it is easy and efficient.
The tote bag gives you the ability to carry a few of your essential travel items on board while keeping them with you at all times. It has a spacious main compartment with a top center zippered opening. Although with it being a top center zipper, it does not allow you to open the case up fully, therefore you may struggle to pack efficiently inside. It has one external pocket, giving you easy access to any items you place in there. The three upright suitcases are expandable, allowing you to take those extra items with you without having to worry about not being able to fit your souvenirs in for the return leg of your trip. On the outside of the three upright cases, you will find two external pockets, giving you the ability to store your travel documents and travel essentials, without having to open the main compartment of your suitcase. Once inside you will find a large zippered mesh lined pocket, with has dual shoe pockets attached to it. This gives you easy access to shoes that you wish to bring along with you, as well as a large zippered pocket to place any loose items, keeping your luggage neat and tidy while you are on the go. On the other side of the interior, you will find the main compartment, where you will be able to store your clothing. There are two elastic tie-down straps, which help compress and keep in place any clothing that you have. The four packing cubes help to keep your belongings secure and tidy while traveling and can be used with any of the suitcases.
The travel tote bag has an adjustable shoulder strap with rubber padding, which allows you to easily carry it on board. Along with a piggyback strap on the rear panel to slide over the upright handle of any larger suitcase. Making it easier and simpler to carry the tote bag with you on your trip. There are four packing cubes, each of differing sizes, allowing you to efficiently organize your suitcase for any length of travel. They are removable and can be used with any of the suitcases, whether you want to use one or all, you will find traveling much easier if your suitcase is packed neatly. The three upright suitcases have most of the modern features that the modern traveler has come to expect, the main negative being the inline skate wheels. They are not as smooth or maneuverable when in use, making it that bit harder to travel with, as the weight of your suitcase will be all on your shoulder, arm, and hand. In comparison to the Fochier 6 Piece Luggage Spinner Set where the eight 360-degree spinner wheels allow you to breeze through the airport, without a consideration on the weight of your suitcase. They are made from a strong and durable polyester, with a PVC backing, giving extra protection to your belongings inside. On the back panel of each case you will find an ID panel, so if your items ever go out of your possession, they will be easily identifiable, ensuring your suitcases get back to you.
The small tote bag weighs in at 1.8 lbs, which given its size is a reasonable weight. The carry-on suitcase weighs in at 7.75 lbs, slightly heavier than what you would expect from a soft-sided suitcase, especially given that the extra features are not there. You will not be able to take on board with you all those extra items, especially if your airline carrier has a strict weight allowance on cabin luggage. The medium suitcase weighs in at 8.95 lbs and the large case weighs in at 10 lbs. Given the sizes of the suitcases, they are all relatively heavier than what you would expect. Although, this could be attributed to the high-density polyester fabric and numerous zippered pockets that this suitcase set has.
The Traveler’s Choice Amsterdam 8-Piece Luggage Set has been designed to balance price, weight, and durability. It seems that they have leaned towards the price than anything else. Although for general use the bags will last, especially if there is no strain on the cases. It seems, however, that once the excessive stress is placed on the bags, they will begin to fail. Previous buyers have noted that the telescopic handle does feel flimsy, and is prone to fail if you pull too hard, or place excessive force on it. Although this is never done intentionally, we all know what bags go through when they come in contact with the airport baggage handlers.
