What To Look For
When Buying Luggage Sets
When you are buying luggage sets you will be looking for similar things as when buying single piece of luggage, or:
- The size and number of the pieces in the set
- Light weight luggage is always preferable
- Good quality Luggage Wheeling System is a must, look for in-line skate wheels
- Telescoping pull handles, ideally with rubber ergonomic handle which provides comfortable and effective handling
- The quality of the material used is important, whether it is hard or soft case
- The overall quality, i.e. durability as you want something that lasts you a while
- Nested or non nested sets, nested is ideal when storage space is limited
- The style, you should ideally like the look of your new travel set
- The brand might give you confidence that your expectations will be fulfilled
- The price, it can be worth spending a bit more for better quality luggage as you do not want to be buying luggage on regular basis
Most luggage online sale sites allow customers to leave luggage reviews. Reading luggage reviews can be very helpful when trying to make up your mind about different types or brands.
In addition, before buying anything always check the luggage warranty, the cover tends to be quite similar but the warranty period can vary greatly (usually between 3 to 10 years).
Most Popular Luggage Sets Combinations
The most common luggage travel sets come in 3 or 5 pieces, but you can also get sets for special purposes, for example golf and snow travel sets. So what is usually included in the most popular travel sets combinations?
3 Piece Luggage Sets
Most 3 piece sets have either three wheeled suitcases of different size (the smallest one is suitable as carryon luggage), or two wheeled suitcases and one small tote to carry with you.
If you prefer duffel bags, then you can get 3 piece duffel luggage set. They usually include two wheeled duffel bags and one small soft piece for carryon luggage. Duffels are usually expandable and can therefore carry more. Duffels are not very practical if you need to put your suits or dresses in them.
There are also travel sets that appeal especially to business travelers, as they are light weight luggage made from more durable fabrics. Business sets will fit business suits and shirts nicely in them. Soft shell versions usually have several external pockets which are great for quick access.
If you are a golfer, then there are special travel sets for golfers which are very useful sets. They consist of large bag for the golf set, a smaller shoe bag, and a duffel bag. Make sure you can strap the duffel bag on top of the larger bag for easier transportation.
5 Piece Luggage Sets
The 5 piece sets usually includes 2 or 3 wheeled suitcases and 3 or 2 smaller bags (duffel, tote and personal travel kit).
There are light weight luggage travel sets to appeal to the frequent traveler.
There are also nested sets but they are great for storage purposes. Nested sets are called so because all the pieces fit neatly inside the largest piece so they can be stored as one piece. This is actually very handy because storing 3 to 5 bags separately takes up lot of space.
More Luggage Sets
Though 3 and 5 piece sets might be most popular there are many more luggage travel sets available, with both more and fewer pieces.
