Samsonite Hard-shell – Highest quality luggage that will last years
Key stats: 55x40x20cm / 34L / 4 wheels / 2.9kg / Hard-shell / Multiple colours
This case is light for a hard-shell case. It moves very well on 4 spinner wheels over multiple surfaces and is within the limits for the stricter airlines.
It has an inbuilt TSA lock, 3 external shut points and internal packing straps. The hard shell material is a hard-wearing polypropylene and the lack of zips makes it completely waterproof.
It’s a very stylish case and comes in multiple distinct colours.
Overall, it is very good value for money and should serve you well for long into the future.

When buying carry-on luggage there is one key thing to remember - airlines are strict!
There is no official international carry-on size for suitcases!
The dimensions for carry-on luggage are the bag’s height X width X depth(all measured in cm or inches). With the cases's capacity measured in litres (L)
You need to check with the airline on what they allow – with some being meaner than others!
In Europe, airlines like Ryanair are on the meaner side with dimensions at 55cm x 40cm x 20cm. While Easyjet and many national flag carriers are not so much more flexible at 56 x 45 x 25cm. But these dimensions are sometimes changed by the airlines, so you should check their website out.
