Samsonite - one of the most trusted brands when it comes to durable and reliable luggage. It also doesn't hurt that Samsonite has some very stylish designs that would suit any kind of personality. They come in different shapes and sizes, and will definitely have a great option for every kind of travel and traveler.
It's easy to feel overwhelmed by the choices available in the market right now, so we've trimmed down the list. Samsonite has some very specialized luggage, but we're narrowing it down to the most common need for the regular traveler. Here you'll find the right fit whether you're an adventurous backpacker, a leisurely tourist, or a jet-setting businessman.
For a price tag below one hundred bucks, the Samsonite Omni PC Spinner is a great buy. It's not the best Samsonite you'll get, but it's one of the best pieces of luggage you'll find under $100. Quality is already a given when it comes to this brand, and this relatively cheaper suitcase is no exception.
It's a sturdy carry-on bag that won't show too much wear even after several years of abuse. It has a micro-diamond scratch-resistant texture and 100% polycarbonate construction. It's lightweight and heavy-duty at the same time.
This suitcase has 4 360-degree spinner wheels to make it easy to glide through airports or maneuver down plane aisles.
The Samsonite Omni PC Spinner also has an expandable design. It will still meet carry-on restrictions even when expanded.
The suitcase is equipped with a top handle so you can lift it up to the overhead compartment. However, it lacks side and bottom handles. It will be much harder to pull it out, or simply carry it in other orientations.
The suitcase has a mounted TSA-approved lock on the side. The zippers also have a slot for an additional lock for added security.
There are two pockets you can use inside. There's a side pocket in the main compartment for underwear or loose items. A full-zip pocket is found on the lid for laundry, shoes, a suit, or other bigger items.
A cross-strap keeps all your items in place.
Its long telescopic handle locks midway to adjust to different heights. The handle glides out easily, unlike flimsier models within the same price range.
For its sleek and stylish design, stunning colors, and subtle luxury, the Samsonite Winfield2 Fashion Spinner is great for those who use their luggage as a fashion statement. It's made of 100% polycarbonate material for lightweight durability.
It's equipped with a three-digit TSA-approved lock. However, you can't add any supplemental locks, so that's the only security measure you have with your luggage.
The surface isn't perfectly scratch-proof. It can easily be scuffed, but the glossy surface makes it easy to wipe off just as easily. The brushed pattern also hides imperfections if it does get scuffed or scratched.
The hard case is flexible as well, making it very capable of absorbing impact. The case pops easily back into shape when pressure is applied.
This luggage is perfect for heavy packers. It's square design maximizes interior capacity. It is also expandable for even more items. The interior has several pockets for organization, and cross-strap to keep your clothes in place.
The luggage also comes in a three-piece set if you want everything to be fully-coordinated.
One of the most popular Samsonite carry-ons, the Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside is a great piece for business travelers.
It comes in black for serious travelers, and blue and maroon for those who want a bit more fun. A unique feature is the split spherical wheels with each half rolling independently. This is one of the smoothest gliding suitcases you'll ever find.
This model is already an upgrade from the already popular Silhouette Sphere. It now has a sturdier handle, improved rolling wheels, and more durable materials.
The grip has a TPR coated, gel-infused handle for better comfort. The body is made of tri-core nylon fabric with SamGuard protection for a water resistant coating. This means getting to your business no matter how far it is and even under a bit of rain. It also has rubberized, textured corner protectors to guard against wear and tear at critical contact points.
The interior of these bags is hard to beat. On the lid, it has a mesh pocket for underwear and small items of clothing and a WetPak for toiletries or wet clothing. In the main compratment, it has another pocket for smaller items, and it comes with a tri-fold suiter to protect business attire. The main compartment is very roomy and can hold up to three days of clothing. It also has an expandable design if you need to stuff more items inside. It can still fit in the overhead compartment even when expanded.
The suitcase comes with top, side, and bottom handles for easier handling of the luggage with any orientation.
For long distance and long periods of travel, the Samsonite Luggage Inova Spinner does more than a good job.
It's made of Bayer Makrolon polycarbonate - incredibly sturdy and durable, and one of the brand's most lightweight suitcases. Despite its hefty size, it's incredibly easy to handle and won't eat up precious allocation for baggage weight restrictions. This material also withstands impact and will stand up to every kind of wear, tear, and abuse it will encounter in the airport, carriage, and throughout the entire travel.
Its four easy-glide wheels also ensure smooth mobility on even terrain.
The luggage is incredibly roomy. It has a mesh lining, a divider and cross-straps, and secures everything with a cloth lid. It does lack internal pockets, so organization is not the best with this luggage.
The handle is also flush-mounted, meaning it does not stick out of the bag. Again, this maximizes size dimensions.
Its full zipped enclosure is secured with a side-mounted TSA-approved lock. There are not slots for supplemental locks, however.
Its brushed metal design and pattern is also a stunner. The high gloss finish comes in silver and indigo. It does get scuffed and scratched, but not deep enough to be noticeable.
If you're more a rugged traveler going through different terrains, or literally a backpacker, the Samsonite Tectonic 2 Large Backpack is your best bet.
This rugged backpack is made of polyester and ballistic nylon exterior for extra strength and durability. While it's not water resistant or water proof, the pockets and compartments are all lined to keep your items from getting soaked.
It also retails under $100, so you get a great bag from a great brand without the hefty price.
The padded and contoured dual-density shoulder straps also provide much needed comfort while carrying a heavy bag.
The back also has padding for comfort, and has a smart sleeve to secure it to a luggage handle. It comes with several pockets for organization.
At the very back is a drop-in compartment that will fit at 17-inch laptop. A quick access top pocket fits small items that you'll need all the time such as cash, cards, or earphones. The front pocket is for tablets or iPads plus other essential items such as pens and a powerbank. The main compartment is roomy and has more compartments and organizers to keep your items in place. On the sides, there is a pocket for a water bottle and a tricot-lined sunglasses pocket.
If the bag is too hefty for you, it also comes in a medium size.
