Rockland Impact Spinner Four-Piece Set Review


The Rockland Luggage Impact Spinner set is made of heavy-duty nylon and boasts wheels that rotate 360 degrees. Users appreciate the versatile sizing, including a small carry-on and a 30-inch upright.

The Rockland Impact Spinner four-piece luggage set is a solid contender, according to reviews. Although not as cheap as the American Tourister Fieldbrook II set, each piece (all uprights) is both larger and heavier. The first difference confers a slight benefit on the Rockland luggage, the latter a slight disadvantage.

In comments posted at Wayfair, users often mention the copious amount of packing space -- more than enough for two adults and four children, says one -- and the classy look. Rockland Impact Spinner reviews at Walmart also note the appeal of the multi-directional rotating wheels on the corners of each bag, and the overall ease of handling despite their relative heft. Users generally commend the quality and seeming sturdiness of the suitcases, although some reviews report problematic zippers and handles that don't hold up to fully-loaded bags.

The downside to this set is the weight. When packed to the max, the larger two uprights in particular could easily sail past the weight limits set by airlines and even by Amtrak. The heavy-duty 1680 denier nylon used for the shells at least partly explains their bulk. The smallest bag hits 8 pounds and measures just 15x10x8 inches, and is the only one that passes as a carry-on; the 22x15x9-inch upright comes in at 9 pounds, followed by 10 pounds for the 26x17x20-inch upright and 12 pounds for the 30x19x11-inch bag. Each piece includes a telescoping handle, two exterior pockets, an interior mesh pocket and an elastic pocket, but there is no way to stack the smallest bag atop the others for more efficient carting. The set is available in black, navy, burgundy, and olive.

Overall, the Rockland Impact Spinner luggage (starting at $135, Amazon) is a good choice for anyone in need of four relatively large and sturdy upright suitcases.
