Rockland Luggage 2 Piece Set Review

Rockland Luggage 2 Piece Set Review

Whether you are traveling as a glamorous jet-setter or as an occasional get-away spotter, a portable, easy to handle suitcase is a necessity.

Carrying a bulky and low-quality travel bag may be a hindrance in your trip. Also, having a carry-on that can sustain the wear and tear that comes with frequent traveling is a must.

For instance, the Rockland Luggage 2 Piece Set is an affordable and durable luggage set suitable for your needs. The 20” x 10” carry-on suitcase is made from 100% polyester and is available in a wide range of colors, depending on your preference.

Advantages

The Rockland Luggage 2 Piece Set is made by a company called Fox Travel. Known for their wide variety and types of bags such as hard and soft cases, carry-ons, and rolling backpacks, this company has been in the industry for over a decade. As observed, most of their merchandise comes in different brightly colored and unique patterns.

Having a wide diversity to choose from suits all occasions and types of travelers, from children and young adults to businesspersons. In addition, having different colors and patterns to choose from allows the user to spot their luggage easily in an overhead bin or luggage carousel at the airport.

In terms of durability, they may not be as durable as bags costing hundreds of dollars but for the fraction of the price, they definitely hold their own. Made with industrial grade, EVA-molded, high-count fabric, you can be sure that these suitcases will resist the wear and tear that comes with frequent traveling.

As for the size, the Rockland luggage set complies with the standard 22” x 14” sizing restrictions for most airlines as its approximate size is 20” x 10” x 8”. Its looks might be deceiving, but this set is smaller and more compact which allows you to handle it without hassle.

Inside you will find it very accommodating, capable of containing most of your travel needs for a weekend getaway or business event. It comes with three additional internal organizational pockets for you to properly organize your carrying needs. For reference, we were able to fit a week’s worth of clothing including undergarments and toiletries.

What is more notable with this is that it comes with a 14” tote bag which allows you to arrange and separate your luggage contents in two. You can put most of your belongings inside the larger bag, to be either checked in or checked at the gate, while you can carry emergency or travel essentials inside the tote bag, which you can take with you on the airplane.

Another great feature is that the set comes with small locks and keys. This provides the user assurance when securing expensive or prized possessions inside the bags, particularly at times when you have to check your bags before boarding.

Disadvantages

What we have noticed when we packed clothing and toiletries inside the bigger Rockland luggage, even without going over its carrying capacity, was that it would fall over if made to stand on its own. This might be due to the narrow and small feet of the bag.

We had to find something to lean it against to prevent it from toppling over. What we would suggest is to not overload it to reduce its chances of falling over whenever left standing. In addition, do not put any bulky material in the front pouch as it shifts the center of gravity and increases the chance of the bag toppling over.

We also found that the “Rockland” decal in front of the bags is not lastingly stitched as it was detached after a few uses of the suitcase. This is not much of an issue in terms of the overall durability of the bag, but for nitpickers, this might be an issue in choosing it over other luggage brands and models.

The smaller carry-on, although very functional and convenient, is not as sturdy as the larger bag. It appears to be pulling apart the seams whenever items are crammed inside it.

Again, to prolong its life, do not put too many items inside the carry-on. Aside from this, the zipper seems to get stuck occasionally, although this is probably not a manufacturing issue with the bag.

Verdict

Overall, the Rockland Luggage 2 Piece Setis an affordable, well-made set of bags suitable for those travelers who do not want to spend hundreds of dollars for a suitcase.

It allows you to safely store your necessities for traveling, and it comes with a separate tote bag that you can carry with you onboard your flight. This consumer-friendly bag is sure to be a reliable pal to travel the world with.
