Rated 5 out of 5 by lux traveler from Fantastic suitcases! I travelled recently with these suitcases and I couldn't be happier with my purchase. They are built to last and surely to turn heads. I've been coveting the aluminum look for a while now yet I wanted a good quality bag at a decent price from a reputable luggage maker who's going to stand behind their product. I had a previously great experience with Ricardo suitcases, so my decision about what brand to buy was easy. These suitcases are built like a vault: sleek on the outside, luxurious on the inside and definitely secure thanks to the two TSA approved locks. Personalizing my code was super easy and locking and unlocking worked like a charm. Packing in the two packing compartments was perfect: clothes on one-side; shoes and bathroom essentials on the other side. The straps held my goods in place and the extra pockets were perfect for undergarments and miscellaneous things. The larger suitcase was perfect for a one-week trip to a summer resort, allowing me to bring plenty of attire options while still weighing 6 pounds below the airline's weight limit. The carry-on was a perfect companion; I always like to bring a few travel essentials with me and I particularly like to keep my travel tote on top of it. This way, no shoulder discomfort from weight when rolling it across the airport. Then the carry-on goes in the overhead bin (no problem lifting it) while the tote stays underneath my seat so I have access to my tech, books, etc. I've been used to travel with a 4-wheel bag for a while yet these bags roll the smoothest I've ever experienced. You just push them a little and they take you along. I was apprehensive about how the checked suitcase with fare after being handled and tossed around yet, I was surprised to see only a few dings, which I find normal. These bags go through a lot. It was also easy to spot my suitcase at the conveyor belt - nothing else shined more than this one.
