The Swiss Army Luggage Spinner Lite 3 Piece Set by Wenger
The Swiss Army Knife is not the only high quality product that Wenger and Victorinox make. Their luggage features top craftsmanship and attention to detail and they offer a lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.
It’s nice to see that they now have a new luggage set that is priced a little lower than their previous ones because that great quality used to come at a bit of a high price! This SwissGear Spinner Lite 3 Piece Set, however, is priced very competitively.
I also like that the carry on piece in this set is sized to fit most international carrier requirements, and the larger pieces are a good size for even petite women to handle easily. Many 3 piece luggage sets have the carry on sized at 22”, which is OK for U.S. domestic airline travel or car travel, but too large for international flights.
Also, the weights of each individual piece when empty are quite low – lower than their last lightweight collection. So yes, whether they meant to or not, this set seems to be designed for women. As always, the design and expensive look of the bags makes it appealing to career women, in particular.
So, let’s go into closer detail of the all the features of the bags in this 3 piece luggage set and see if it is a good buy.
- There are three upright spinners in the collection – a 21” carry on, and a 25” and 29” spinner.
- The carry on measures 20.5″ x 14″ x 9″, the 24” measures 25″ x 17″ x 11″, and the 29” measures 29″ x 18.75″ x 12.5″.
