The Lucas Outlander carry on has been designed with a balance between durability, weight, and comfort in mind. You will feel secure in the knowledge that this bag in there ready for your trip for the long run. The ABS shell and aircraft grade aluminum will ensure that the bag is strong yet lightweight. The corners and stress points are reinforced even further, giving you that extra peace of mind. Coming with four spinner wheels, it will provide you with a confident, stable, and silent carry-on bag when in use. These wheels are far superior to the inline wheels you find in cases such as the American Tourister Fieldbrook II line of suitcases. They will be great on flat surfaces such as in the airport, however, take them onto uneven or carpeted grounds and you will be in a bit of trouble and really have to work to get your suitcase to follow you. The handles on the top and side look to be strong, reinforced handles. Giving you the confidence that when you pick up your suitcase to store in the overhead lockers it will not fail on you!
Featuring a storage capacity of 29 L, this spacious carry-on will allow you to bring a lot of your items. Although not as spacious as the Travelpro Maxlite 4 21″ Expandable Spinner, which holds a massive 51 L, you do, however, get a hard case, with no chance of overfilling and it is sure to fit in the overhead bins. As it is a hard-sided suitcase, it does not have any exterior pockets. You will find that inside it showcases mesh zip lined pockets on one side, allowing you to pack loose items or important documents, ready to access easily. On the opposite side, the main compartment for your clothes. The x-strap will help keep your clothes in place, neat and tidy while you are going about your journey.

The scratch-resistant, textured, hard-sided shell will ensure that all your valuables inside remain safe and secure, especially when knocked or bumped which is inevitable when trying to get through the hoards of people each carrying their suitcase which has a mind of its own.
The Lucas Outlander carry-on weighs in at 6.5 lbs, considering the construction and durability, I believe this to be a good compromise on weight and strength. It is not as light as the ultra-lightweight IT Luggage Los Angeles carry-on which weighs in at the nearly half at 3.6 lbs. The Lucas Outlander is a hard-sided suitcase, which inevitably means a higher weight, but more protection for the items inside.

Stylish, sleek, and ready to be showcased around the world while you are on your travels.
