F02192 - Ciao! 1500 Denier 5-pc. Vertical Expandable Luggage Set
I guess I shouldn't have waited for 7 months to use my new luggage, because by the time I did, my only recourse was to deal with the manufacturer, not QVC. The first trip we took the two bags I checked with the airline were damaged. The outside zipper compartment (which I didn't even open) lost its zipper head and the seams frayed on the other bag. I guess this bargain was too good to be true! This product does not stand up to the abuse of baggage handlers.
Not What I Expected
I would recommend this set to a friend who doesn't travel much. I bought this luggage set (in red) 2 years ago to travel to Europe. I never got to Europe but have done some traveling in the U.S. In the 2 years I've had the set, my luggage looks dirty and worn (beyond normal "wear and tear") and during my last trip, the zipper on the 28" pullman tore away from the lining. This was not repairable so out came the duck tape!!! Not good!
Ciao 1500 - Didn't hold up
Gave this as a wedding gift. The couple used it for their honeymoon, but was very disappointed to begin with. The handle unlatched from the suitcase, before the trip began. At the end of the trip, the material beaded up and the zipper to the expandable top broke. Didn't hold up...., but it does look nice!
Good Value for the Money
I bought this in red. It's a very rich color and the hardware is similar to luggage you'd pay lots more for. Mine had no odor at all. My only complaint is that it seems to show dirt more than other luggage I've had. After one use, it's pretty dirty. If I'd known that I would have used ScotchGuard before the first use.
I'd been shopping for a set of luggage comparing prices, pieces, materials and was thrilled to get this one. I love the variety of sizes and have used all the pieces at one time or another. They fit nicely inside eachother for storage. I have the black and experienced no issue with an odor. I love the durability and that the uprights are expandable. A real winner for me at a price I was very pleased with.
Odor to luggage fabric
This luggage set is very nice, but the odor from the black fabric is terrible! I tried to air it out for weeks. I returned it because I was afraid that the odor would get into my clothing.
10 yrs. use.
ive had this set for 10 yrs. in green. im sure the green is obsolete but the point is ive had and used it constantly. i had a more expensive set of luggage but this set with the sizes that are so right for long distance as well as as weekend travel.
