Mia Toro Luggage Review: Are They Any Good?

Mia Toro is a luggage brand you don't hear that much about, perhaps because they hail from the land of style - Italy.

Although you won't find these suitcases in every store, they certainly stand out in a crowd. 

In this detailed review I am going to show you some of Mia Toro's top suitcases, and whether they stack up against the bigger names.

Let's get started...

The Design and Look Of The Mia Toro Suitcases

The biggest difference between a Mia Toro suitcase and other brands is their look. These suitcases will make you stand out from the crowd, that is for sure! And with so many suitcases looking the same (and kinda boring) I am happy someone finally did something about it :>

Various Textures

Most of the models they create are hardcases with the same overall design and features (which I will get into below), but each has a unique look or texture. These include (amongst many others):

  • Acid Wash
  • Abrased Steel
  • Carbon Fibre
  • Speckled Canvas
  • Matte
  • Chain Mail
  • Limestone
  • High Gloss Finish

Artistic Designs

And then there are the even more unique custom designs that are almost like artistic masterpieces...

Overall Design & Features

The Mia Toro hard cases are actually very simple, elegant and robust.

The exterior of each case differs in its coating, but they are all made of Lightweight Armor-flex Composite.

Simple Flexible Interior

It is no secret that I love the hardcase clamshell design because of the packing options it provides.

All the Mia Toro hard cases use the same idea as most suitcase makers, but without any extra frills.

There are two equal halves to the case when it is opened and laid on the ground. This gives you great packing flexibility because you can more easily see what you are packing and reach it when you are unpacking.

The bottom has a lining and a criss-cross compression strap.

The top a zippered cover so that when you close it all your hard-earned packing does not come tumbling out.

There is also a full-length zippered panel on the top for those extras you just can't find a spot for.

And last but not least, there is a full-length expander zipper around the case that gives you an extra 2 inches (or 25%) more packing space should you need it.

TSA Compatible Combination Lock

These days no hard case luggage is complete without a built in 3 number combination TSA lock and Mia Toro is on the job with that too.

If you are no familiar with such locks, they have two big advantages:

  • The save you from having to find your lock and keep another key
  • TSA can open and inspect your lock without cutting it

Can't complain about those two bonuses, right?

Easy To Push Spinner Wheels

When you get a hardcase these days, you almost always get spinner wheels.

These are 4 sets of wheels that make it easy for you to push your case along, smoothly and without effort. 

They have a couple of downsides like not being that great on rough surfaces (cobbles, gravel etc). But you can always tip the case onto two wheels just like on your old 2 wheeled roller case.

The other issue is that you have to keep good hold of them on a hill or public transport (bus, train etc) otherwise they have the tendency to head off on their own :> The only system that is good enough to resolve this problem is on the Delsey Chatelet, which has a cool braking system built in. But you have to pay a little more for such luxury.​

These spinners are not the best I have seen or the worst. There are two on each set, which helps them roll and keep a straight line and roll more easily. But there have been a couple of reviewers on Amazon and Ebags that have said they have a tendency to break easily.​

Quality Spinner or Roller Wheels

The handles on the Mia Toros have not been forgotten which is great news because many manufacturers forget how often we have to pick up or pull our suitcases.

My hands always hurt for a while afterwards!

The handles are ergonomically designed (so suit your hand) and also come with a gel grip to help ease the joy of lifting your suitcase into the overhead or car trunk.

Other Things To Note

There are so many different variations in the Mia Toro range that I cannot possibly cover them all in this review.

The features mentioned above appear to be on all models I have checked, but please do your own checking before you buy.

The same goes with the sizes. They tend to create 3 sizes in each style, a small (20 inch) a mid (24 or 26 inch) and a large (28 or 29 inch) but it does seem to vary a bit. That said, the setup and layout of the cases usually remain the same.​

Cases Not Mentioned

There are a few other cases in the Mia Toro line that I have not covered here including some soft cases. But, the majority are hard cases

There is also one made from polipropoline which may also be of interest to some of you. It has more of a matte plastic finish than the other cases.
