The Good: The lightest hard-sided suitcase in town!
The Review: What do you get when you combine sexy European style with Samsonite’s unique innovations in lightweight luggage? The whole Samsonite Firelite collection is shockingly easy to lift and roll, with the 20″ carry-on weighing in at an astounding 4.4 lbs (and is a true international carry-on). The interior of all pieces in the Firelite collection are quite simple, with a zippered compartment in one half and cross packing straps in the other, making for a no frills nice neat easy pack. Made in Europe the Firelite collection boasts TSA locks and is one of the most weather proof suitcases available. Both the shell and the YKK zipper are water resistant, keeping your belongings dry when they’re next stranded on that rainy tarmac! The spinner wheels are in-set, maximizing volume while reducing the risk of damage. Did I mention they roll unbelievably smoothly? With weight restrictions even creeping their way into our carry-on standards, it’s nice to see Samsonite continue on their quest for ever-lighter quality luggage.
