Chess House Heavy Club Chess Set
The major selling point of this portable tournament package is the playing pieces crafted of solid plastic, triple-weighted and given a matte finish. The set comes with 34 of them, including two extra queens, which is pretty much the norm for an option at this price. They feel great, and their combined weight of just over two pounds in total should give you a sense of the strength and durability of these chessmen. The board is made of soft vinyl so it will need some break-in time to prevent it from curling up when it's time to play. On the other hand, the 24-inch-by-9-inch bag has been designed to carry everything you need for a day of tournament play, including padded clock pouches that can accommodate a chess clock of any size and a shoulder strap for easy portability.
