I travel by air once a month cross country and my old Delsey was just showing it’s age in how it was performing plus it was a 20” and just a bit small for the clothing options needed when traveling to PNW. I compared the current Delsey, the TravelPro MaxLight 6, and this Samsonite Spin tech. In the store I liked the feel, size, features, and sturdiness of the Samsonite. Then I took it for its first PNW trip.
In the parking lot and through the airport- it handled like a dream. I didn’t have to shove or cajole my case to shut without expanding it, and it was so easy to lift into the overhead bin. Then it handled the train and the walk from the train to the hotel over bricks, cobblestones, light rail tracks, and potholes like a champ. I never got stuck or needed to pull, it just took all the bumps with ease and grace.
We’ll see how it holds up long terms but I am quite impressed with this perfect hard side piece of carry-on luggage!
