Affordable luggage from Coop ( Trophy Kappa series )

I thought it was very cheap. Check with your local Coop branch.

The cheap branded stuff in these offers is not of the same quality as the same brands in a high-street shop.

Basically - it's cheap rubbish.

Maybe you're right but I have bought a few of Coop's previous trophy things which are still in good shape and not broken. I will definitely buy the holdall of this trophy series.

Thanks for the link. I hadn't read any articles but when they had a WMF pan as one of their offers, I couldn't find the same low quality pan on any WMF website or retailers website so I concluded that it was a "special."

Same with other stuff.

We used the stickers and got the luggage when they did it a few years ago. Within one year the bottom of the cases were trashed and all of the zipper pulls were missing.

They are cheap, but you get what you pay for.

For the last promotion I got the airmiles instead.

Re: Affordable luggage from Coop ( Trophy Kappa series )

I have the kappa luggage from previous Coop promotion (2010 ?) which I still use till now, and they are okay.

But, instead of buying things from Coop to get the stamps, I buy the stamps directly. Currently it is as low as 3.5 stutz per full card(!).
in ricardo.

So, instead of spending 30 x 10 Chf per full card, I only spend 5 chf...

Re: Affordable luggage from Coop ( Trophy Kappa series )

We just bought the pair of hard sided rolling luggage. They do seem pretty cheaply made. The soft sided bags are total junk but the hard sided set seems decent. I figured the "discounted" price was about what they're actually worth, but for 100 bucks for a big checked bag and a carry on, they're ok. They'll probably break pretty quickly but they do come with a two year guarantee, so we've got at least that much time with them. My wife is about to take them on a trip to Frankfurt for a week, so we'll see how they hold up.

Re: Affordable luggage from Coop ( Trophy Kappa series )

We bought around 4 bags and it was pretty good. So funny that some people expect super good quality at a low price. Kappa bag is affordable and not that bad for the price you pay..

Re: Affordable luggage from Coop ( Trophy Kappa series )

I got the hard set - large+small, and travelled to Dubai and india in January. 6 flight changes and 4 train journeys later, the luggage is doing fine.
