If there’s one major disadvantage that many hardside suitcases have, it’s their relative inability to expand if you need to pack that little bit extra. The new Traveler’s Choice Glacier 29 Hardshell Expandable Spinner puts those doubts at ease, as it can be expanded an additional 25”! Now you can shop for all those souvenirs without worrying about not having enough luggage space to bring them back.
Another nice cosmetic detail in the Glacier collection is that the outside of the shell is not convex like most other hardshells. The surface is almost completely flat and only the edges and corners are rounded. If you want to lay the suitcase flat and pile other smaller bags like the other pieces in the collection on top of it, they will stay stable instead of wobbling or falling off.
The Glacier collection of expandable spinner uprights seems to be a decent lightweight and durable choice if you’re looking for affordable luggage.
