Let’s take a look at the features, pros and cons of the largest upright in the collection, the Delsey Helium Aero 29 Inch Expandable Spinner Trolley.

- The colors available are blue, platinum and red.
- There are four double spinner wide set wheels that provide 360 degree mobility and enhance maneuverability and stability to ensure minimal hand fatigue.

- Top and side carry handles let you pick up and hoist the bag easily and lie down flat when not in use.
- The self-repairing double zippers lock into the integrated 3-dial TSA-approved lock, which comes with instructions to use.
- The fully lined interior contains two packing compartments to provide extra organizational packing. The lid compartment comes with a zippered divider for smaller items.

- There are elastic criss-cross restraining straps that snap shut via buckles to keep your things in place.
- Features a 10 year limited warranty.
- Great value for the quality of the bag.
- It holds a lot even though it is a hardside and the expandable feature is very useful if you need to bring home your shopping!
- This checked bag can withstand the treatment given out by rough baggage handlers.
- The hardware, i.e. the wheels and pull handle are hardy.
