This set is absolutely beautiful! I purchased this set for my mother & I for a 2 week trip to Spain in May. My mother has purchased a number of pieces in the past so she is a better judge at the quality than I. When she saw it she loved it! Both her & I were impressed with the quality. The handles of each bag were nice & thick. I checked out each zipper to see the ease of using, they zipped with ease. The zippers look to be of good quality also. I liked the fact that each bag had handles on 3 sides for lifting. Each bag has a clear pouch that snaps inside the bag. They each had 2 zipper compartments one of mesh & one with fabric on each side of the longest part of the bag. On the inside lid the zipper storage was not all mesh, maybe a quarter at the top. We both agree nothing beats luggage that are on spinners, much easier to handle & move. The tote that came with it was really nice, has a zipper pocket on outside & one on the inside. The tote feels as if it is padded. As far as holding up on a trip will have to wait & see. At the moment would say they are well worth the money!
