Sales of hardside luggage have been rising steadily in the last 2 years because the newest technologies in luggage manufacturing are making these types of travel bags the most durable, lightweight and stylish kinds around. The Samsonite Winfield 2 28” spinner upright is currently the best selling hardside bag for checked in luggage on Amazon.
When it comes to checked luggage, weight limits on each piece are strictly followed by airlines all over the world, so most companies have been focusing on lightweight technology. Even if you’re not flying, why use a heavy suitcase that’s difficult to lift in and out of a car trunk or hard to roll along for a long distance?
You’ll also need to make sure that your checked bag is durable because baggage handlers are not the most gentle people around! They’ll throw your suitcase about during transit and you could end up with a heavily dinged bag after just a few trips.
While ballistic nylon is really tough and is still a leading choice in material for most bags, they can get very heavy if packed full. Polyester bags are lighter, but they don’t hold up well to too much abuse. Instead, choosing a good hard case like this Samsonite luggage Winfield 2 spinner bag is a better choice because it is made of 100% polycarbonate, which is extremely durable and lightweight at the same time.
There are two other bags in this Samsonite hardside luggage collection. One is a carry on and the other is a 24” to use as a smaller checked bag. Each smaller piece can nest within the next larger one.
