American Tourister Luggage Fieldbrook II 4 Piece Set Review
Bottom Line

It's not for the frequent traveler, but for most people, the American Tourister Luggage Fieldbrook II 4 Piece Set is a great value. It has a nice assortment of pieces; a small duffel, a suitcase that should fit in most overhead compartments; a larger bag for longer trips, and a "boarding" bag that will fit under the seat in front of you. Owners love the selection of colors, including a few bright, easy-to-spot options.

Features

A useful assortment of bags. The American Tourister Luggage Fieldbrook II 4 Piece Set includes a boarding bag that fits under the seat. It's the right size for a tablet, small laptop or a couple of books plus snacks and personal care items -- enough stuff to keep you entertained on a long flight, say owners. It also includes a 21-inch suitcase that will fit in most overhead compartments, a 23-inch wheeled duffel, and a larger, 25-inch bag for longer trips. All four bags have outer pockets, something that users love. The two suitcases have basic, X-style compression systems in the main compartment, and mesh, zippered compartments in the lid. There is no dedicated, padded compartment for a laptop.

Convenience

Carry-on friendly pieces. Combining the 15-inch boarding bag and the 21-inch wheeled suitcase makes a perfect combination of "crew-style" carry-on, with a bag for clothes and an under seat bag, say owners. To make it even more convenient, the boarding bag has a strap to fit over the handle of the rolling suitcase for east of transport. For longer trips, the entire set can accommodate enough clothes for a couple of weeks. However, several reviewers say the measurements given for the bags are misleading and they're quite a bit smaller than expected. The duffel has wheels and an adjustable shoulder strap. All pieces "nest" inside each other for storage.

Appearance/durability

Very attractive, but not for heavy use. Several reviewers say "you get what you pay for" when it comes to this luggage set, saying the pieces frayed or stained quickly. It's true that these are not a good choice for the frequent traveler, or those who have to drag it around cities or in rugged conditions. However, for the average person who may only travel occasionally, users say this is a choice that will hold up well under normal travel conditions. Even those who pan it for durability love the six color options, which include red, black, green, purple, violet and blue.
