I’ve never been especially particular about luggage, that is until I got a really good carry-on suitcase a few years back. I never knew how much I cared about swiveling wheels and a USB charger until my favorite travel bag started to deteriorate and I was faced with replacing it. I was going to take the easy way out and just buy the same exact bag I already owned, but then Travelpro came through and suggested I put one of their carry-ons to the test.
As soon as I unboxed Travelpro’s Crew™ 11 21″ Hardside Spinner, I was giddy. It’s such a good looking piece of luggage. I was even more excited when I lifted the bag out of the box; it’s shockingly lightweight! I am one of those maniacal people that hates checking luggage, so I need to be able to lift my carry-on in and out of the overheard compartments with ease. I recently packed this suitcase full with a week’s worth of clothes for a trip and I had no trouble whatsoever with the weight of the bag.
The best feature of all, however, is definitely the mobility of this bag. The wheels are like a dream. They never get stuck and truly do move in every direction. Rolling this bag in one hand and my old carry-on in the other and there’s no comparison. This bag just glides so easily in every different position. If you’re like me and constantly rolling a carry-on around the airport, you have to experience these wheels. They’ll blow your mind.
As for other features, this carry-on has a USB port to charge devices and lots of internal compartments to keep things neat and organized. It also comes in five different colors including a cool silver tone that I love.
If you’re planning a trip in the near future, do yourself a favor and treat yourself to this suitcase. As soon as you take it for a spin, you’ll know it was well worth the investment and you’ll want to travel more than ever.
