Merax Luggage Design
On a fundamental level, the Travelhouse is a very standard hard-side luggage with a glossy finish and 8 vibrant color variations to choose from.
Colors range from professional black to bright yellow, so you can surely find a set that suits your style.
All suitcases in the set come with four spinner wheels for great maneuverability. They’re reportedly smooth and silent on proper terrain.
Each suitcase in the Merax Travelhouse Luggage set is also expandable by about 25%, and the bags can be nested inside each other when not in use.
While luggage designs are 95% the same these days, there’s always something you can do to give your product a little extra that makes it stand out from the crowd.
For the Merax Travelhouse Luggage set, this is the telescopic handle with its own storage and the combination lock. It should be noted that the lock is not TSA-approved, so if that’s important to you you’ll need to buy a separate lock, like the SURELOCK TSA Compatible Travel Luggage Locks.
The carry-on has a capacity of about 42 liters, while the medium suitcase can store 74 liters. Finally, the largest suitcase can handle 119 liters. This capacity can be increased by expanding the suitcases as mentioned above.
A great bonus for the Merax Travelhouse set is that the telescopic handle has its own pocket, so it doesn’t interfere with the storage space.
The interior of the suitcases is the usual split design, with a mesh zippered pocket on one side for smaller items, and cross-straps on the other to keep your clothes nice and tidy.
The Merax Travelhouse carry-on weighs 5.8 lbs, which is exceptionally lightweight for a hard-sided suitcase.
The medium suitcase weighs 8.1 lbs, and the largest suitcase weighs 9.7 lbs.
Overall, while the larger suitcases might seem a bit heavy, this is pretty standard for hard side cases and should still provide you with ample storage space without exceeding weight limits.
Thanks to its ABS and polycarbonate construction, the Merax Travelhouse Luggage set is supposedly much more durable than a soft-sided suitcase.
The only drawback is a lack of flexibility which does enable the soft side cases to store just a little bit more than their hard side siblings. That said, you don’t have to worry about accidentally exceeding carry-on sizes with the hard side case.
The hardside material should also be fairly scratch-resistant.
When looking a the wheels, they’re reportedly sturdy and long-lasting. That’s good news since spinner wheels by default break a bit easier compared to inline skate wheels.
Some customers reported the handles and zippers aren’t always super durable though, and should be used with caution.
The Merax Travelhouse Luggage set is available in 8 colors (!), from black to bright yellow, so there should be a great choice for everyone, regardless of the purpose of your journey.
The overall design is very subdued and this set is definitely not a designer set. However, if that minimalist look is what you’re going for, this is perfect.
|Suitcase||Approx. Dimension (including wheels)||Approx. Dimension (excluding wheels)|
|20 inch*||22″ x 13″ x 9″||20″ x 13″ x 9″|
|24 inch||26″ x 16″ x 11″||24″ x 16″ x 11″|
|28 inch||30″ x 19″ x 13″||28″ x 19″ x 13″|
*Note that the carry-on might not comply with every airline size restrictions, make sure to double-check their size allowances.
The Merax Travelhouse Luggage set comes with a standard 5-year worldwide warranty.
It only covers manufacturing defects, however very often defective pieces reveal their faults right after delivery, or after 1-2 uses, so this warranty period should be acceptable.
