Ultimate Travel Chess Set

Just received the 9” inch Milled Leather Chess Set, love it. It’s almost everything that was described. After research of as much I could find on the internet I found no better Travel Chess Set.
The Positives;
1. Absolutely gorgeous chess pieces that are not too small and beautifully crafted with solid differentiation of size. I tend to judge chess set by the look of the knights and these knights are wonderful with differentiation of other pieces. Along with having a marvelous tan and dark brown colour. 5+ Stars
2. Great size and portability. I have been looking for some guidance on what was the smallest size chess board that I would want to get and still play a game against a live opponent. I believe that a 1” square is the perfect medium. The addition of a soft fabric case for the set and a separate fabric case for the pieces is spot on for carry along set the will fit very comfortably in a backpack. I could see carrying this with me 24/7. 5+ Stars
Negatives
1. Milled Leather. Yeah, I should have known that milled leather is not real leather though the description said “...on a soft leather chessboard.” I thought I found a really exceptional value of a real leather board. 3 Stars
2. Colour of the board. I just do not like the colour of the light squares and border on this vinyl board. 4 Stars
Value;
Haven’t seen any other set that gives all qualities for a travel set that is real life playable. Not looking to play someone on a check book chess set and definitely do not want to play on a set with pictures stamped on checker pieces. I like the idea of the play keeper 8” chess sets but the Drueke and other sets I have seen don’t compare with the portability of this set. 5 Stars
Overall I am really happy with this set and all the service from the Chess House website along with their informative videos on YouTube. 5 Stars
Lastly, I appreciate this age of online service but please don’t forget your local chess shops and clubs.

Great Travel Set

This is a nifty, light, easily packed set that is travelling with us as I type this. The pieces are small and light, but not so small as to be easily lost. They are detailed enough to be easily distinguishable. The board is flat, but prone to being bent, so some care needs to be taken with it when packing. The magnets in a few of the pieces appear to be a little weak, so they slip off the board with more ease, where others hold when it’s held upside down. Overall,we’re finding this to be a good quality set and a worthwhile investment. Thankyou Chess House!

Great Set

While the board doesn't lay exactly flat, it is a nice travel set. The magnets are strong enough to make up for any leveling issues but not so strong that you cannot pick them up easily. I would recommend this set to anyone looking for something portable and easy to set up.

Great Set

Compact and light, great for traveling.
Board and pieces look great as well.
Only downside is the spine makes it hard to have the board completely flat.
