F07788 - Samsonite Esplanade 25" Spinner and Rolling Duffel Set
Bad Quality - Bad Functionality
I bought this set back in February 2010 and used first time on airplane trip last week (September 2010). Duffel is not a carry on - too heavy to lift overhead - had to gate check it coming and going. Duffel does not easily attach to 25" suitcase nor does 25" roll well if duffel set on top. Very bothersome to try to maintain two wheeled items alone. Duffel too heavy with wheels to carry on shoulder. Trim on 25", after one airplane trip, is spitting off. Looks like its years older than it is because trim is literally peeling off. I expected better quality from Samsonite and better functionality.
Ordered this set in Rasberry. It is a beautiful color. Travel was so easy with the spinner bag. Lots fit in it. I was away for 10 days and only had the 2 bags, The carry on is also very roomy. Just saw this set is not available, but it is well woth the money.
Great luggage at a terrific price!
I love this luggage! I rec'd the raspberry and I know I'll recognize it at the pick-up department. I love the color. It has so many openings and extra places to store things. And I love the carry on piece. It's a nice size, not too small, but bigger. And the best thing is that it's easier to pull around. When my 28 yr. old daughter saw it , she loved it. And she knows her luggage. The price is right for such beautiful luggage very well made!
Great Luggage Set
I purchased this set a few weeks ago to specifically take it on a trip to Walt Disney World. I returned from the trip last last week and the luggage set was perfect for the trip. I wanted something lightweight and easy to manuever around. This set did just that. I packed the 25" full and it only weighed 35 lbs to WDW and 37 lbs for the trip home. The rolling duffle glided easily through the airport and it is a great piece to carry on the plane. The duffle holds more than I expected. I thought the introductory price was very reasonable for the two piece set. I looked elsewhere before buying this set and you can't beat the value for a two piece luggage set. If you are looking for something very functional and value in luggage you can't go wrong in purchasing this set.
Bought this for a graduation gift. I can't wait to give it to my Niece. I'm sure she will love it ,it is really a nice set of luggage. I got the purple color which is almost like a rasberry ,really pretty color the quality is great I'm sure it will hold up very nicely.
Great deal; great luggage
The luggage is beautiful; I was thrilled when I saw the color. I just used this set to travel via airplane. The 25" held up really well and it holds more than one might imagine. It's was easy for me to identify in the sea of black suitcases, and when waiting in baggage claim, I saw no other suitcases in this same color... The rolling duffle is the PERFECT carry-on, and it holds a tremendous amount. The duffle would be sufficient for a week-long trip, saving on paying for a checked bag.
I HIGHLY recommend this set.
Excellent Luggage! Excellent Price!
I just got this set in Raspberry. It isn't as "rich" in color as on TV but I'm sure in candlelight or room lighting it would look similar. In bright light it more of a medium purple. It's beautiful! Do not hesitate to buy! The raspberry is a great choice when you want to find your bag quick.
I love the croc trim. The set is high quality. I do not know what the other reviewer was talking about when she said it wasn't a Samsonite. It is a Samsonite!
The 25" piece weight 12.4. I weighed it myself. All Samonsite 25" pieces weigh the same. The spinner technology is the best!
I cannot get over the price! You will not find this anywhere else! Great job QVC!
This is an amazing set. Very classy looking. There is a lot of room inside with the zipper on the top portion of the suitcase. I am buying another set for my daughter
Just what I was looking for. I went on my first plane trip with these. I packed the larger bag full and it weighed in under 50 lbs. I even had a laptop in there and it was under weight. The spinners are amazing when you're waiting in the check in line. My only complaint isn't the bags' fault, it's with the airlines. They treat your bag harshly. The piping was banged up, so if you want your bag to stay pristine, don't check it. I ordered the brown pair. It's a gorgeous rich color. I'm ordering the raspberry pair for my college aged daughter. The smaller bag is perfect for over night or carry on. It has wheels and a pull bar too. Perfect:)
WHAT does 25" bag WEIGH? My scale says 28#???
I took a chance, if I have to pay an extra $50/each direction because this main bag weighs as much as it appears to on a human scale, I will need to send it back. - QVC, HEAR US - we need to know what each piece weighs so we can decide if the luggage is going to work! I love the look, concerned about how long it will last, it's not samsonite, that's for sure.... LOVE the rolling carryon, it's absolutely awesome - and lightweight! The suitcase appears to weigh 28# by itself, which is what the Cust Serv rep quoted the entire shipping weight to be...
Please, QVC - HEAR US, I'm not the only one asking how much EACH of the luggage pieces you sell WEIGH, please. Southwest Airlines charges an extra $50.00 MINIMUM for the first pound over fifty - and that is for EACH DIRECTION. They aren't the only airlines with this luggage weight rule.
This luggage is very pretty, it's not as sturdy as samsonite, but I'm aiming to not have to pay that extra hundred bucks each fight, if that means I buy less expensive, more often replaced luggage, so be it - better than being soaked over a couple extra pounds of items I just can't part with. I FEAR the (unconfirmed) weight with this 25" suitcase, and dont understand why QVC won't just PUBLISH the weigh of the individual pieces! They wouldn't take my question live either - disappointing, but I have faith I can return it if indeed I'm charged the excess - but I'd rather just avoid that all together!~ (in QVC's defense, JCP, Sears and Macy's don't have weight's listed or available either - take the lead, Q, you're the best, let everyone KNOW it :) I will pack light, shove the heaviest items in my carryon, and pray for the best. It is beautiful afterall... especially the rolling carryon, never seen anything like this, it's small, but lovely!
I really wanted a stand out great color. The raspberry is very dull...not attractive at all. Sent it back as I have other luggage
This was an excellent purchase. The luggage is beautiful! I have received many compliments on the luggage. It looks so much better in person than in the photos!
