Suitcase review (CSN Stores)

CSN stores gave me the opportunity to review a product from one of their stores. I have been wishing for some more luggage—somehow all our large suitcases have ended up in Korea with Chris, or have had the wheels broken by airline travel, leaving us only small carry-ons. So, I headed to the CSNstores Shoes, Bags, and Luggage department to look around. A search for “suitcases” yielded 1633 results!  Of course, my options dwindled somewhat when I limited the search by price. I spent several hours browsing the site before I decided on the CalPak Gator 2 piece luggage set. This set retails for $349.99, but was on clearance for only $53.99!  The larger suitcase is not as large as I would have liked --only 22”, but it does expand to 13” deep, so it should hold significantly more than a 25”  x 8” deep suitcase that we already own.

The shipping was quick and the suitcases arrived in just a few days.  The quality appears to be very good. They feel very sturdy and are made of heavier fabric than the cheap luggage that we usually buy. The rolling mechanism seems very smooth.

There are two not-very-roomy outside pockets on each suitcase. The inside of each suitcase has zippered extra section and a zippered mesh pocket to help organize your gear. These suitcases are very deep and are expandable for even more depth.

I just used the smaller 18” suitcase for a weekend trip. It looked tiny, but was plenty big enough for a weekend.

If you are in need of luggage, I suggest you check out this set at CSNstores.com before this great clearance deal sells out!
