American Flyer Luggage Lyon 4-Piece Set, 86400-4 Review
American Flyer Luggage Lyon 4-Piece Set
American Flyer Lyon is a sturdy, functional and practical 4-piece luggage set of a 28″ large, 25″ medium, 20″ carry-on and a 19″ doctor’s bag. Your color options are metallic black (86400-4 MBLK) or metallic red (86400-4 MRED) and the latter is about 11 dollars cheaper at the time of this review.
The 28-inch large upright luggage weighs 15 pounds and measures 18 x 13 x 28 inches, the 25″ upright medium luggage is 11 pounds and 16 x 11 x 25 inches, the 20″ carry-on upright is 9 pounds and 14 x 11 x 20 inches, and the large doctor’s bag is 2.5 pounds and 19 x 13 x 8 inches. They have a classic fleur-de-lis design with metallic print and are made of 600 denier very dense DuraPlex polyester. The design makes it easier to find your suitcase on a busy carousel.
All three upright suitcases are expandable by another 2.5 inches to give you an extra storage space when you need it. They come with the retractable telescoping handles at the top, as well as the side, top and bottom handles for giving you lifting options. They don’t have the spinner wheels that we’re used to seeing in the luggage sets we reviewed, but the pro grade inline skate wheels. They also roll smoothly and quietly, but just can not rotate 360 degrees or maneuver as easily. You just pull the bags when you want to move them, rather than moving them sideways.
The guards in the corner protect these bags from wear and tear. They have the fully lined interiors with the large pockets for the additional storage space with the zipped mesh pockets and the elastic bands to keep your clothes in place during the transport. They are easier to organize and you can fit in more of your stuff. 4 pieces in this set have the self-repairing nylon zippers with a 2-year warranty. The 19″ doctor bag has the vintage American Flyer silhouette, a 15″ laptop compartment, a removable strap and a dowel top.
All bags have the American Flyer zipper pulls and ID tags. A couple of customers commented on a chemical odor and you can just leave it outside for a few hours. The black and red colors on these bags are more like the regular black or red with a bit of shine, rather than metallic. But they certainly look very nice and modern, in fact better than photos. We recommend this 4-piece set, especially at the relatively low price level and you’ll be happy as long as you’re not expecting a top-of-the-range very high quality set. These bags are above average and have nice looks and they are good for how much they cost.
