We put them out in the sun for a a couple of days then I put one of the bags with volcanic stones in them ...it did help.
I must get them out now and see if they have regained their smell
Why not just throw a fabric softener sheet in the luggage, close it and let it sit a few days? We always keep a fabric softener sheet in our luggage when we put it away after a trip. Smells nice for the next time we use it.Some people are sensitive to fabric softener smells.
If you have some time before you travel this would work but if you are leaving soon it's not for you.

If it were me, I would take it back to the store and get a refund and then go buy soft sided bags. With the new rules for weight regulations, I would want my bags to be as light as possible. Just my two cents.Interestingly, my hard side luggage is lighter than most canvas/soft sides, it's one of the reasons I bought it.

I take no more notice of the wind that comes out of the mouths of critics than of the wind expelled from their backsides.
