Good quality Samsonite luggage set with spinner wheels, for a low price (given I bought a similar mid size single suitcase for £129! ).

Online offer at Costco.

That's a really nice set. Wanted a more premium cases. Is this Cheaper for Cost Co Members?
Looks like a Costco special? Can't find it being sold anywhere else.
Can't find warranty info on the Costco product page - anyone know what it's like?
dunno what's so "elite" in them since they weight quite a lot...

Can't expect something to be light then last you ten years, i'd rather have 2kg more in luggage weight out of the 25kg limit so my suitcase lasts longer
I really wouldn't recommend buying suitcases like this. Always buy clasp closing cases unless you don't mind people opening your luggage and rifling through your possessions

If someone is determined they will open your suitcase no matter what you do. The zip is convenient and the suitcase is expandable too.

That logic is one of wishful thinking, personally I don't like leaving anything I don't have to down to chance, and I would advise others not to as well. Do you leave your car door open because it's easier than locking it? Or maybe your front door? Or not wear seat belt because it's quicker? 9 times out of 10, zipper suitcases are opened because they can be opened in less than 10 seconds by anyone with a biro pen without even being noticed.

More importantly, thieving foreign baggage handlers can can reseale the zip just as fast without anyone knowing it's been opened - including yourself! And God forbid someone uses your suitcase to smuggle their drugs. It might be rare but it happens, fact. Some countries carry the death penalty for drug offences, or worse, a lengthy prison sentence in a place that would make Britain's worst prison look like a 5* hotel in comparison. And they don't care if you did it or not either, you're lucky if you get a 2 day trial in some places. Prices for clasp suitcases are pretty much the same as a decent zipper suitcase, and it really isn't a big hassle when you consider the risk of alternative.

Been using zippered suitcases for decades with no incident. If this was a regular issue, manufacturers would stop making them, and people would stop buying them.

just bought this:

-I wouldn't trust the website listing as the dimensions are different to whats stated on the box it comes in:

website says
  • Overall Dimensions: H 76.8 cm x W 49.8 cm x D 33cm
  • Overall Dimensions: H 55.9 cm x W 38.7 cm x D 23.4cm
Box says
-76.8 X 49.5 X 32.3
-57.1 X 38.7 X 22.2

Also, theres an amazon US listing of what looks to be the same product, which states 10lbs and 7 lbs which is totally different weight to what the website says. I haven't weighed them but they don't feel as heavy as stated on the site. They are the flexible hard shell (cosmolite type) material not that solid old school shell.

It has a premium look, but without premium features (eg separate padlock needed
