I bought a nice carry on Samsonite because of what I thought was a name brand, and because the store clerk raved about the 10 year warranty.
Well, one year later, while rolling down an airport, the wheel comes off. This bag has rarely been checked, especially on the most recent trips.
I go to Samsonite to find out how to get the bag serviced and there I learn the "warranty" doesn't cover normal wear and tear. The only thing it does cover is manufacturing defects. I'm sorry but I think a mfg defect would be discovered shortly after purchase and I would think even off brand products would cover that.
So, don't be fooled. Samsonite warranties are worthless. I'll be purchasing a real name brand with a real warranty. And I'm going to relay the story to as many people that I can. BTW, I travel quite a bit both personally and professionally. The crowd I hang out with travel extensively so they are the type to be purchasing luggage.
