Eagle Creekâ¿¢ Blue 25" Adventure 4-Wheeled Luggage
Good individual piece, but not as a set
I really liked this luggage piece by piece, but if you're buying more than one, there are some things you need to know. It has many great features including a lifetime "any reason" warranty, which is unparalleled in other brands. Each piece is truly light weight, has excellent, well-thought out materials (sturdier in typical wear spots, superb zippers and a great interior design with ample space. It's superior in all but two ways and for those two reasons, I returned the luggage after purchasing it.
The first, and possibly non-deal-breaker, flaw if you have plenty of storage space is that these pieces do not nest. The smallest will nest inside the largest, but not the in the medium, nor the medium inside the large.
The second deal-breaking flaw is the pull handle height. All 3 pieces have a different extended height. This makes it impossible to push all three together.
The pieces are excellent individually, but as a set, they need some improvements.

I took this suitcase and the carryon size to Europe recently. Both performed very well. The handle was sturdy, the wheels made going through airports and train stations much easier, and the handle on the bottom made loading the suitcase in overhead bins much easier. I liked the suitcases' weight (virtually nil), sturdiness, extra room, two outside zippered areas and the side straps, which ensured that the zipper alone wasn't holding the suitcase together. Now, if only they could make a way for it to climb interminable train station stairs, it would be perfect!
