Have you been coveting the Lipault Paris brand of luggage but couldn’t buy any of the pieces because they were not available Stateside? Well they are here now and the Lipault Paris Upright 4 Wheeled Carry On Trolley is especially popular in the U.S.
Lipault’s ultra lightweight collections are simple and practical but stylish. Their range of colors mainly appeals to women, but you do have the option to buy dark neutrals as well. In addition to their tote bags and duffle bags, there are two main lines of wheeled uprights – one is the 2-wheeled “foldable 0%” luggage and the other is the 4-wheeled spinner luggage or the “Plume” line. The carry on that we review here belongs to the Plume line.
What this bag does best is provide the maximum amount of packing space for the lightest weight possible without sacrificing on durability. In fact, you can even pack a week’s worth of clothes into it!
Otherwise let’s take a closer look at why this carry on spinner upright is so popular.

- The bag is made of 100% water resistant 420 Denier twill nylon on the outside that gives it a subtle satin sheen. The inside is lined with monogrammed fabric.
