Samsonite Hyperspace Spinner Boarding Bag Review


The Samsonite Luggage Hyperspace Spinner Boarding Bag is much appreciated by users for its carry-on size, high quality, lightweight design, and features like a padded storage area for a laptop and wheels that spin 360 degrees.

Consumers have largely positive things to report in Samsonite Hyperspace Spinner Boarding Bag reviews. Indeed, the bag is a perfect carry-on size -- even with recent rule changes at several major airlines -- due to its compact profile and light weight. Travelers who posted comments at Amazon praise the Samsonite Hyperspace Spinner Boarding Bag for its sturdy construction and functionality. They say it glides almost effortlessly, the handles stand up to heavy loads, and the shell holds up to the impact of travel-related (mis)adventures.

Users also rave about the interior spaciousness -- surprising for a bag that some assert fits under an airplane seat. Multiple interior pouches facilitate organized packing and two external pouches provide additional space. One user writes of having packed two pairs of pants, four shirts, one dress, a pair of pajamas, two pairs of shoes, makeup and shampoo, a book, and a small iPad. The padded laptop compartment also pleases, although some reviews grouse that the Samsonite Hyperspace Spinner can't accommodate a 17-inch device; according to the specs, the shock-absorbing laptop compartment is large enough for a 15.4-inch computer.

The bag is made from a stain-resistant blend of 70 percent nylon and 30 percent polyester. It boasts dual spinner wheels (two at each corner) that swivel a full 360 degrees, and two good-sized zippered pouches on the front. The Samsonite Hyperspace Spinner Boarding Bag (starting at $95, Amazon) weighs 7.9 pounds, measures 17x14x7.5 inches, and is available in black and teal.

If you're looking for a single bag that, at least for now, falls within strict carry-on size limits, this is the one to buy. The Boarding Bag in Samsonite's Hyperspace Spinner line is small but roomy, decked out with organizational paraphernalia, and relatively resistant to the strains of travel.
