The Samsonite Aspire Xlite Spinner 19 inch has been designed for maximum capacity in such a small suitcase. The suitcase bears the same sleek, stylish look that you have come to expect from Samsonite, and you know that it will last. Being available in only one color, black, it is peace of mind that Samsonite will not release colors just for the sake of it. They really do care about their image. The polyester fabric and lightweight frame help keep the weight relatively low while providing a strong and stable base for your carry-on. It is packed full of the features that you expect on a cabin bag, such as the multi-directional wheels, the telescopic handle, and the exterior and interior pockets, meaning that for a soft-sided suitcase you really don’t feel like much is missing.
The small Samsonite Aspire Xlite does come with the essential storage features. On the outside there are two exterior pockets, allowing you to store your important documents and travel essentials, with easy access throughout your trip. The Samsonite Aspire Xlite Expandable Spinner 20″ will expand to add to your packing capacity, although with all expandable suitcases, ensure that it still meets your airline carriers requirements before packing those extra items and arriving at the airport. You do not want to be left disappointed and having to pay to check it in. The inside of the suitcases has two sides, on the inner lid you will find a mesh zip lined pocket which enables you to pack loose items and keep your suitcase neat and tidy. The main compartment has an x-strap which will keep your clothes packed exactly how you left them before you embarked on your journey.
The Samsonite Aspire Xlite Spinner 19 inch is packed with features that you have come to love and respect. The four multi-directional wheels are essential to travelers who use to them, there is no going back to inline wheels once you have seen how easy your luggage moves with the spinner wheels. The multitude of interior and exterior pockets allows you to have easy access to travel essentials, all the while keeping your cabin bag tidy and organized throughout your trip. For the Samsonite Aspire Xlite Expandable Spinner 20″, the expander will give you that extra bit of room when needed, although, in comparison with the Travelpro Maxlite 4 range, it has not been specially designed to improve stability when expanded. That being said, you should not witness it falling over when full, although, it may feel a little more unstable than it did before. The telescopic handle will extend and lock into place at three intervals, giving you the ability to change the height of the carry-on to suit its user.
The weight of the suitcase is somewhat a concern for those who are conscious about the weight limits imposed by some airlines, especially international travelers. The Samsonite Aspire Xlite Spinner 19 weighs in at 7.5 lbs, which is rather heavy compared to the market today. Even the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 20 inch, which is a hard-sided suitcase, weighs in over 1.2 lbs less than the Samsonite and is one inch taller. It is hard to see where Samsonite have allowed this case to pack on added mass, and it is even harder to comprehend when you see other suitcases much lighter with the same features, size, and capacity. The weight could be a moot topic if you do not normally pack heavy, and there are no concerns with the weight limit imposed by the airline carriers.
Samsonite luggage is well known for being durable and long lasting if you purchase a bag, you expect it to last, that is no different with the Aspire Xlite Spinner. Being made from polyester fabric, with the corners reinforced, your bag will be able to handle the rigors of airport life. Some customers have noted about the handle sticking and locking into place, which can be an issue when you are rushing to store it in the overhead locker, or the trunk of a taxi and the telescopic handle will not go down. The zippers are self-mending, ensuring that if for any reason they come undone, just zip it back and forth, and your zip will be good as new. Overall, there have not been many complaints, and if there are any issues with the product you have a 10-year warranty that you can use.
Available in one color, black. If you are looking for a suitcase that will stand out from the crowd, then this one is not for you. If you are looking for a suitcase that will do its job, look professional, and not let you down, then you have found it. Coming from Samsonite, you can be assured that it will look sleek, stylish, and professional, as with all the Samsonite baggage. It may be an issue if you are waiting at the baggage carousel, as a few people could have the same suitcase, in the same one color, and you will be left wondering whether the guy in front checked to make sure it was his bag that he picked up.
The Samsonite Aspire Xlite Spinner 19 measures in at 19 x 13.5 x 8 inches, and 22.0 x 13.5 x 9.5 inches for the overall dimensions. It is a smaller suitcase than many of the 20 or 21-inch cabin baggage available. Although for peace of mind, as the airline carriers continue to tighten the restrictions on carry-on luggage, you will be happy that you decided to opt for a 19-inch suitcase as opposed to one of the larger ones.
Samsonite supports all of their luggage with a 10-year limited warranty. It will cover the usual things that manufacturers will cover, this includes defects in the material or manufacturing. It does not cover wear and tear. If the suitcase lasts for anywhere close to ten years, then you should be happy, as it is available for under $100, it will be money well spent.
