The American Tourister Pop Plus line is fitted with a few of the more modern features that you have come to expect on a suitcase nowadays. They are designed with ease of use in mind, coming with four spinner wheels, a telescopic handle and cushioned side handles, all allowing you easy use of the suitcases. Displaying the signature American Tourister logo on the front of all three cases, along with multiple pockets, this suitcase set seems stylish to some extent. No matter the color that you decide, you will have a black trim, which keeps it stylish and modern looking.
The American Tourister Pop Plus Suitcase gives you exterior pockets on each of the suitcases, your go-to items when traveling will be within easy reach. On the inside of the suitcase, you will find a zip-lined mesh pocket, giving you room to organize your items and keep loose items from going all over the place. On the other side of the suitcase, you will find an x-strap, which holds down your clothes and keeps them neat and tidy during your journey. The cases are expandable, with a zip compartment opening up to allow an extra 2 inches of packing space. Giving you more room to pack all the belongings that you wish to travel with.
Each of the three bags feature four spinner wheels, these are the modern wheels, which allow you to roll your suitcase with very little effort. Meaning you will glide through the airport without much stress on your body, no matter how heavy the suitcase gets. Be aware though, as the spinner wheels are not so friendly when it comes to carpet or uneven surface, as you will find that your friends become your enemies and will make it a lot more challenging when navigating these difficult surfaces. With exterior pockets, the bags allow you to have easy access to any documents or items you need when traveling. The cases will expand, to give you ample room to pack in those souvenirs when coming home!
The carry on weighs in at 8.6 lbs, the medium weighs in at 10.5 lbs and the large at 12.1 lbs. They are by no means the lightest suitcases available to purchase on today’s market. If you are conscious about the weight of your suitcases then you may wish to opt for an ultra-lightweight alternative that is available. That being said, they are not the heaviest of suitcases and do allow you to pack most of your stuff while keeping somewhat of an eye on the overall weight. As all can be expanded, you may consider the suitcases to be of reasonable weight, especially given how much you can squeeze in.
With the American Tourister logo you always expect the items to be durable and of good quality. You will not be disappointed with this three-piece luggage set. The corners are reinforced to ensure maximum life, especially when being roughly handled in the airport luggage system. As with all soft-sided bags, they are not as durable as the hard-sided alternatives. Being made from polyester ensures that it is classed as lightweight, although it will not be as resistant to scratches and trauma.
Available in a wide range of colors, you will be sure to find one of the seven colors that suit your style. Whether you decide to lay low and go for the black in order to blend in, or you would like to stand out from the crowds with one of the more vivid colors, I am sure you will be happy with the choice that you have made.
The carry-on measures in at 21 x 14 x 8 inches, which is just below the requirements for cabin luggage, although once expanded this may take it over the airline carriers restrictions, so it is best to check with your airline carrier before expanding as it may need to be checked in. The medium bag measures in at 25 x 18 x 8.5 inches and the large at 29 x 20 x 9.5 inches. All can be expanded meaning that the size will be slightly bigger, which you have to keep in mind.
All American Tourister suitcases come with a manufacturer’s 10-year limited warranty, it covers only manufacturing defects and does not cover any damage caused by misuse. Although this is normal for a luggage company, if you get 10 years out of a suitcase, surely that is money well spent.
If you are looking for a reasonably priced, soft side suitcase set with a long warranty, then you could not wrong in finding that this set suits your needs. It is easy to use, has lots of pockets and plenty of storage space. It can be purchased online at popular retailers for as little as $110, for a set of three suitcases, seems like a reasonably good deal.
