Design

The Samsonite Centric suitcase set has been designed with innovation, durability, and inspiring confidence in mind. Samsonite has produced another world-leading luggage set, which really does look futuristic both in style and in features. In Centric, Samsonite has combined scratch-resistant textures with lightweight 100% polycarbonate construction, ensuring that your luggage is strong, durable, and will be looking like new even after years of use. The new panel design which is striking to look at offers increased protection for your items inside. Not only will you be sure that your items are safe inside, all three suitcases also come with a TSA-approved lock, giving you the extra piece of mind. The 360-degree spinner wheels, along with the telescopic handle, allows you to effortlessly glide through the airport, or even down a busy city street, all in confidence that your wheels will not break off or fail at the slightest uneven surface.

Storage

Being a hard-sided suitcase set you do not get the exterior pockets as seen on the Lucas Luggage Adrenaline 2 Piece Softside Expandable Spinner Suitcase Set. However, there is more than enough storage space inside that you do not have to worry. Inside the suitcase, there are two spacious main compartments for your clothing, along with a full-zip interior divider and cross straps which help make packing and unpacking the suitcase easy and stress-free. There are many options inside the suitcase that will allow you to store clothing away from spillables, and valuables safely placed in a way to ensure that nothing gets lost or damaged while being transported.

Features

The Samsonite Centric 3pc Hardside Luggage Set is packed full of modern-day features, as well as some innovative new ideas that really do set this suitcase set apart from the competition. The side-mounted TSA-approved locks that are fitted on each of the suitcases ensure that your belongings are safe and your luggage can only be accessed by TSA agents without damaging your case. If you are looking for any extra space in these cases, you will find that each one is expandable up to 1.5 inches, giving you added packing capacity when needed. The 360-degree spinner wheels offer the user a chance to stop pulling the suitcase and make it easy and comfortable to roll it by your side, all without having to break a sweat or place any strain on your arms or shoulders. On the outside of the suitcases, you will find new co-molded handles, along with a comfortable rubberized grip. This gives you the confidence that when picking up your case, the handles will not break off, making it easier to pick up and place in overhead lockers, the trunk of your car, or even up and down stairs.

Weight

The carry-on suitcase does weigh in a little bit heavier than the equivalent in the Lucas Luggage Ultra Lightweight 3 Piece Expandable Suitcase Set With Spinner Wheels at 7.5 lbs, however, if you are looking for the added protection and features, then it is well worth the trade-off. The medium suitcase weighs in at 9 lbs, and the large at 10.8 lbs. The suitcases are neither heavy nor lightweight, yet pack all the modern features. Samsonite has done a great job in balancing both weight and comfort when traveling with this luggage set.

Durability

With innovation, Samsonite has deployed the scratch-resistant twill texture which will ensure that no scratches or marks ruin the look of your suitcase, keeping it attractive and eye-catching trip after trip. The bold new panel design uses intense corrugation, giving the suitcases added strength to protect what’s inside. The spinner wheels are of a new design, giving added strength to ensure that they do not break or buckle under pressure. It has been noted by previous buyers that the locks sometimes don’t work, it would be best to check this before using your suitcase, as the lock is an integral part and something that you really would want to use.

Style

Upon first looking at the suitcase set you see the futuristic design of the shell, along with the range of colors that it comes in. The design not only looks good, it is a key piece of the puzzle as to why this suitcase protects your belongings so well. As the suitcase set is available in a range of colors, it allows you to easily pick one out that suits your style and personality the most. Although not at all feminine in its looks, if you are looking for a suitcase set that combines style and protection, then this is perfect for you.

Size

The Samsonite Centric carry-on suitcase measures in at 22.5 x 15.5 x 9.5 inches, which is pushing the limits of what is allowed under airline restrictions. If you are looking to expand this suitcase or travel internationally where tighter restrictions are in place, it may be best to double-check with your airline carrier to make sure that it will be allowed on with you. The medium suitcase measures in at 26.5 x 17.5 x 11 inches, and the large at 30.4 x 20.9 x 12.4 inches. All three are good-sized suitcases, which will fit inside one another when not in use to help with storing them away.

Warranty

The Samsonite Centric 3pc Hardside Luggage Set comes with a limited 10-year manufacturer’s warranty, to protect your suitcase set from any manufacturing or material defects. As with most warranties, it does not cover any misuse, wear and tear, or mishandling. It is much longer than Caribbean Joe Luggage Castaway 4-Piece Spinner Suitcase Set, giving you more confidence that it will stand the test of time.
