Swiss Gear is a moderately priced luggage brand that features individual suitcases priced in the $70 to $120 range as of 2015. Its suitcases feature extra-long, telescoping handles, durable exteriors and four independently spinning wheels, which make them lightweight and easy to maneuver through crowds. Most of the pieces also feature one or more exterior pockets for stowing essentials such as a laptop, passport or boarding pass within easy reach. Over 75 percent of reviewers on Amazon.com gave the company's 24-inch spinner suitcase either four or five out of five stars. However, the 28-inch version did not fare as well, with quite a few purchasers saying the suitcase was poorly made. Nevertheless, it still received an overall rating on Amazon.com of 3.5 out of five stars and 4.5 out of five stars on Overstock.com.
Swiss Gear luggage is made by Wenger, the manufacturers of the original Swiss Army knife. The luggage is distributed in the United States by Group III International, which also markets BMW Premier Travelware and French West Indies luggage. Swiss Gear suitcases are available at many online retailers and in stores such as Target, Walmart and J.C. Penny
