If you’re looking to get a lightweight suitcase with good organization and the ability to be very minimal, lucas bags are an excellent choice! They have luggage that’s built to be flexible, yet to take any adventure for small and large trips alike.
Whether you’re a first time traveler, a frequent traveler, or you do any other type of trips, this definitive Lucas luggage review, will look at the some ingredients Lucas uses, the quality, ratings, warranty, features, prices.
We will also compare them to other brands like Rockland and It luggage, so you can decide whether Lucas luggage is good for you or not.
Let’s dive in.
What is Lucas?
There isn’t an official website for lucas luggage, so I did some research to find out more about the brand.
Lucas is a brand operated with a company called 24-7 international located in Montville, New Jersey, and specializes in travel goods throughout the world.
The company has many other brands, like Ciao, Pathfinder and Andiamo.
Top Features of Lucas Luggage
Durability and quality
The main body of the soft sided bags are made from high quality and safe polyester fabric.
“Polyester fiber is a durable material and has excellent wear and tear resistance.”
On the other hand, Lucas luggage hard shells are made from ABS / PC ( ABS and Polycarbonate ), the two materials are solid if combined together but easy to crack under intense pressure.
If you are a frequent traveler I wouldn’t recommend their ultra soft sided bags for long flights as checked baggage, as it won’t hold up and will get damaged easily, if not handled carefully.
Their zippers are average, even though zippers are a weak point for most of the luggage ( not just Lucas luggage) as they are easy to get stuck or even break off .
Lucas luggage has pretty basic features, like interior organizational pockets, straps, zippered dividers, but they do not include the TSA locks, an integrated ID tag or a push button locking handle on some of their bags.
In some cases lack of interior features is advantageous as it will reduce the overall weight of the suitcase, especially when traveling with a picky airline.
Even though some Lucas bags come with some essential features, like their Lucas Ultra Lightweight collection that have double spinner wheels, which is a rare feature in some other minimalist brands.
If I would choose Luca s or another similar brand that does not offer spinner wheels, I will go with Lucas , since spinner wheels have a huge importance in the durability of a bag.
Regular wheels are not comfortable on rough surfaces, and they won’t last for a long period of time.
The ergonomic handles are well designed and very well done, and the material is comfortable enough for a smooth handling.
Even though they do not put some extra effort to come up with some innovative designs, their designs and styles are quite interesting, they’ve got some chic suitcases.
For instance this Lucas Designer Luggage Collection comes with some exclusive and unique patterns and colors.
Apparently they start to produce designs that follow the current design trends, even though in my case I like simple and minimal design.
Lucas does not offer one warranty for all types of products.
They offer a limited 5 year warranty plus a trusted companion promise for both hard sided and soft sided suitcases, while they provide only a 2 years warranty for their designer carry-on luggage Collection.
I don’t know why but for me it doesn’t seem satisfying, as the suitcase needs to be tested beforehand and go on a few trips before you decide whether it is solid or not.
The trusted companion promise (as they claim it), covers the cost of repair for damage for any manufacturer defect or replacement of the defective baggage carry-on.
Just like the majority of luggage brands, the warranty covers only the manufacturing and workmanship defects.
If the bag is crashed with the airline, Lucas won’t take the responsibility of it so you won’t get a replacement or get it fixed.
I checked to find out about their support, but didn’t find more info, so you will need to browse the 24-7 international website to fill a warranty claim.
Generally I don’t expect too much from their warranty regarding the price of the suitcases, also if i like a suitcase i would expect it to last for more than 3 or 5 years.
Lucas priced their luggage really cheaply, and everyone can get a piece with a reasonable price.
Their suitcases are more affordable than some of their competitors, which are known for making lightweight suitcases.
Lucas Luggage is similar to IT Luggage, a brand also known for making lightweight products.
Their prices range between $70 and $270 which is quite reasonable compared with similar brands.
I think that the brand offers an excellent value for money.
Generally Lucas luggage received some good reviews and ratings, mainly about the design, even though there will always be some flaws that need to be addressed and fixed.
Here are some pros and cons of the Lucas suitcase.
- Very spacious.
- Reasonable price
- Some chic print and designs (easy to see at pickup at luggage carousel)
- Wide range of choices
- Perfect gifts
- Lack of features like a TSA lock
- Limited Warranty
- Not for frequent travels
Final Thoughts : Are Lucas suitcases worth it?
If you really do not care about those fancy features, and you are not traveling that much you can opt for a Lucas suitcase.
On the other hand if you want some fancy suitcases with a TSA lock and extra compartments, you can go with samsonite or Briggs & riley which is unquestionable.
So if you’re looking for something less expensive while having some good features, I would recommend Rockland or IT luggage.
We hope this helps.
