Of course great features and design are only as good as long as they last. Delsey has established a reputation for practical and durable luggage. Delsey Chatillon Wheeled Garment Bag seems to uphold that reputation.
Water-repellent DuraTec nylon durable is a material and can withstand a lot of travel, even rough and tough travel. Well-crafted reinforced corners and scratch resistant fabric between the wheels are smartly designed to minimize any impact at typical stress points. One user commented this bag made it through Europe and back on 8 flights without a scratch.
I also spent quite a bit of time reading over user reviews to see if there were any issues with the handle twisting and breaking. It appears that is a very rare issue. I always worry the wheels on a spinner bag like this will cause frustration and stop rolling smoothly, but did not find any negative comments about these wheels’ functionality. So it seems that this Delsey luggage holds up well even after repeated use.
It’s good to remember this is not a hardside case. The nylon fabric is meant to be flexible. So when reviewers say it’s flimsy, which is not a common complaint, but there nonetheless, it’s good to remember the difference between a a soft outer shell like this one, and a hard shell. A hardshell is obviously going to be better if you have something fragile, but a soft flexible case is advantageous if you want to squeeze in more or for clothing. So don’t go packing fine china in a softcase bag.
