    Damaged in transit

    published

    The bag didn't survive it's maiden voyage. The covering of the hinge caught and bent back. Airline denied liability. Samsonite refused to honour the warranty. Single use very expensive bag. Wouldn't buy Samsonite again.

    Plastic leg shaft snap, because air bubble inside manufacturing defect.

    Rubbish product and rubbish company, I will never buy any smasonite, overpriced junk.
    Called customer service center, left message, but no reply, they just don't care, so long as marking is good there will be people buy it.

    Purchased the case through Strandbags who arranged to replace it with a new one, without any problems. Thanks Strandbags

    Only 2.9 kg for a 75 cm suitcase

    published

    My wife and I, bought one of these suitcases, each. The patented CURV material is very strong and is supposed to be used for making bullet proof vests. For a hard-case suitcase with a volume capacity of 93 litres, it is very light.

    We chose these instead of the Cosmolite, as we had read about the widespread problems with faulty zips in the Cosmolite range. Also, the Firelite range has a protection layer for the zip and is supposed to be water-proof if caught in the rain.

    The four wheels are very good, hardy in build quality and easy to roll. We have tested both suitcases in a trip across France for a month. They passed the test.

    Update June 2016. Our suitcases have been used during our holidays in Canada and USA for a month; and in China for 3 weeks; also in Thailand, Malaysia and Singapore for 3 weeks. Still in very good condition. Next trip is Japan for 2 weeks.

    Update July 2017. Both suitcases continue to perform very well. Have been overseas twice this year for our holidays.

    I had one and gave it to my daughter for local travel in a car. Nothing wrong with it, except many airline and check in counters would put 'heavy ' stickers on it even though it was less than 20kg. A train check-in at Montreal to Ottawa refused to take it on the carriage and it had to go in the baggage wagon. Maybe the burnt orange colour attracted the attention.
