rolling luggage – Traveler’s Choice, 2017

The New Yorker 4-Piece Luggage Set from Traveler’s Choice features enough storage room for family packing or for an extended business trip. The set includes three pieces of rolling luggage and a shoulder tote.

Two of the luggage pieces in this rolling luggage set can be used as a carry-on. The smallest suitcase, which measures 21 x 13.5 x 7.5 inches with a possible two-inch depth expansion fits the common maximum 45-inch linear requirement for rolling carry-on luggage for most airlines whether you choose to extend the depth or not. The tote bag, which measures 15 x 11 x 6 inches, might even fit under the seat of some airlines, letting you carry both bags on at the same time if you don’t have another laptop or purse with you.

The remaining rolling luggage pieces in the set offer ample packing room without exceeding oversize luggage measurements for most airlines. The largest bag measures 29 x 17.5 x 10 inches and the medium bag measures 25 x 15.5 x 9 inches. You can extend packing room for either bag by unzipping the extension, which adds another two inches in depth to each piece.

All four bags feature polyester and dobby polyester construction. Soft sides make for flexible packing and storage, and interior liners help protect your items during transit. Exterior zipper pockets let you separate items for access or organizational purposes, and the three rolling luggage bags feature both telescoping top handles for use with wheels and side handles for carrying. The tote features a shoulder strap and hand straps.

The wheeled bags feature two inline wheels on the back and a horizontal foot on the front, letting them stand without support. The skate-style wheels are designed to reduce friction, which could help with traveler’s fatigue if you are walking a large airport or city. The entire set is covered by a manufacturer’s warranty for five years.

Reasons to purchase the New Yorker luggage set might be that you travel regularly with the entire family or take extended vacations or business trips yourself. You might also benefit from a selection of luggage sizes if your travel needs vary; those that only take overnight or short trips may not need such an expansive luggage collection.
