    Best Luggage Ever, October 27, 2011
    By 

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    My wife and I do retirement leisure travel several weeks a year. We are so tired of luggage handles that tear out because of poor design. That is what first attracted us to this luggage in a Samsonite Outlet Store. We really liked the luggage but the price was more than I was willing to pay. Later, I found this luggage on Amazon.com and bought two 25 inch ones and saved $100 total from the outlet price.
    We just got back from a 3 week trip to Oregon and it was our first trip with the Samsonite Lift 25″ Expandable Spinner Luggage and are more impressed than ever with it. The airline agent who checked us in for our flight commented on how well-built the handle was and also stated that is usually the first thing to go. The driver for the rental car shuttle admired and commented on how much he liked our luggage. So, did the hotel shuttle driver on our return trip. Everyone, including us, feel that this is the best luggage design ever. Not only does it have the integral handle on the top, it has a good handle on the bottom – a feature that my old back very much appreciates when putting the suitcase up on a bed or a luggage rack. Every suitcase that I buy will be a spinner because they are so much easier to handle and turn around in hotel elevators. We have had other spinner suitcases that the spinners broke when being pulled like a wheeled suitcase. Not these, they pulled well, spinned well, and did everything we asked of them.
    The luggage was so light (8.6 lbs) that with two of these suitcases we could carry the amount of clothes that normally take in 3 suitcases in order to stay under the 50 lb airline limit. One less bag to hassle with was much appreciated. The design is well thought-out and the suitcase is sturdy even though light. It held up perfectly and still looks new after 3 weeks of airline and rental car travel and being dragged into and out of a different hotel almost every night. That is why I feel that this is the best luggage ever !Samsonite Lift Spinner 25 Inch Expandable Wheeled Luggage

    Love the color not quite purple, but not blue either. I just wanted to be able to see it among all the ordinary black ones, and I did! Let me tell you this luggage survived several loadings and un-loadings on planes, boats and buses all in 2 weeks time in Germany, Italy and Greece. I can attest to the fact that luggage handlers need to move fast and don’t have time to be gentle, I witnessed my suitcase being slammed face down many times and everything inside was fine, shoes a little smooshed, but fine. That being said, don’t put anything bulky or breakable in the outside pocket. I followed the instructions of other reviews about putting heavier items towards the bottom to prevent tipping and I never had a problem. I have to say I love the “four wheel drive” while everyone else was toting their suitcases behind them putting strain on their arm and shoulders, mine was smoothly rolling right next to me, almost effortlessly. I never tripped anyone with mine either since I knew right where it was and sudden stops were not an issue. Going from 4 wheels right next to me to 2 wheels behind me on the escalator was a breeze. Our luggage was left out in the rain and all of my stuff was soaked, it never occurred to me to use a water proofing spray. I did pack all of my clothing and almost every item in zip lock bags so all was well. Because I deflated the air from the bags to make them very flat, I was able to fit 14 days worth of women’s clothing plus all of my high maintenance girly items, 2 pairs of sandals, several souvenirs, and still had room left. Just had to watch the weight, which was 37 pounds pre-trip and 48 pounds post trip. My daughter’s 24″ Samsonite pre-packing weight was more than this one, so the weight of this one is ideal! My husband says the handles on the bottom and sides are a great idea, as he hefted it in and out of the car 3 times. Buy this luggage and have a great trip!

    A great purchase but I wanted any future buyers to be aware.. Because it’s a bit unstable (falls away from the handle) it was tricky navigating up and down stairs/escalators in Tokyo train stations. I was carrying a small cooler and this suitcase. Because I was holding the suitcase with the extendable handle, it almost tumbled down the escalator (away from me) onto an innocent, helpless looking woman frozen in shock because she knew this monstrosity of a suitcase was going to crush her. I found it easier to control with the non-extendable handle. At least that way it didn’t spin away from me and pull me down the escalator with it! I’m just under 5 ft with adequate strength to carry the contents of the suitcase without the wheels, which I had to do at train stations with no escalators but the tippiness with the extra torque made it difficult to control on escalators. The extendable handle appears to be quite sturdy. If it wasn’t, it surely would have landed on the woman behind me. It does have great points for style. I love the charcoal.
