Cheap hardshells made of ABS will crack if you look at it wrong. These are made of polycarbonate which has a bit of elasticity to it, and doesn't crack easily.

I own this exact set. They're decent, but there are a few downsides:

- The halves of the bags are held together by the zippers, so I don't know how well they'll hold up if they're loaded heavy
- The smallest one is ever so slightly too large to be a carry-on on most domestic US carriers. The largest one is ever so slightly too large to be a checked bag on most domestic US carriers. Most carriers will let you slide though.
- If your bag is not loaded full, expect your checked bag to come out with one half jammed into the other. The bag does not have enough structure to hold its shape if it's not fully loaded. On the other hand, if it's fully loaded, your contents are holding the bag up when it's underneath a bunch of other ones, so the bag does a poor job of protecting its contents.

This set is not bad for the price, but I'd spend more money on a more solid bag if I were carrying anything that might be fragile.

We've always used soft case bags, but this deal looks too good to pass up. Any disadvantages to hard case that I should consider?

I also bought this set at this price several sales ago. I'm actually on a trip with the carry on this week. The wheels are great and the luggage is solid.

I'm not a pro traveler, but the shells are thin, light and slightly expandable. And they nest nicely. Depends on usage, I guess.

I've had a family member have a hardshell crack on a trip back. With the way they throw and toss luggage around, the hard shell has a chance of cracking. I prefer a softshell for this reason.

Outside pockets... not a big deal most of the time, but sometimes people want to be able to get to your liquids, etc for your carry-on.

Nice. I'm tempted to resell the Gabiano set I purchased recently. This looks better. First time hard case user.

Looks like the smallest one isn't small enough for carry-on, and biggest is too big for check-in. Most US carriers will probably let you get away with it, but it may be a problem in Europe.

Ah, hard sided luggage with zippered halves. So silly.

My first German exchange students used the Samsonite Oyster and so do I. Heavy but bulletproof.

the zipper on my mid-size is defective and opened up both ways on my trip to california. The hard shell made this effect worse, transferring all the load to the zipper whereas a soft shell would absorb some impact.

It was just out of the 30 day return period @ buydig. Now I'd have to drive them 1.5 hours each way to a "service" center. I'm not satisfied with the quality and I'm sticking to soft side.
