Genius Pack G3

Carry On 22″ Genius Pack – The Name Says It All

Product Name: Genius Pack G3 22″ Carry On Spinner Luggage
Quick Description: Smart, Organized, Lightweight Suitcase
Size: 22 x 14 x 9 inches (including wheels and handles)
Weight: 7.8 lbs
Rating: 4.5 of 5
Colours: Black, Navy, Red, Titanium

You can’t get past this little gem of a carry-on suitcase. The name Genius Pack isn’t exaggerating at all. It is absolutely perfect for the highly organised person and is sure to have any convenient feature possible. As you can tell, I am really liking this bag and here is why:

  • It comes with a removable laundry bag to keep dirty clothing separate
  • The integrated air valve will compress your clothing to make more room
  • Features Sock, undergarments and chargers compartments
  • Outside pockets to store water bottle, passport and other items you might want to have quick access to
  • It has an embedded checklist! You’ll never forget anything again
  • It is expandable to 25% extra packing space
  • You can strap a personal bag and jacket to the bag

These are just some of the awesome features of this little genius. Apart from that, this bag is made to be extremely durable, the spinner wheels are directly connected to the frame which means they are less likely to break off and it is water, UV and abrasion resistant.

But wait, what are the downsides?

When using the compression straps for the dirty laundry department make sure not to overload it, as the buckles could then break under the pressure. You’ll still be able to use the laundry department, but won’t be able to use the compression part of it, which is a big help otherwise. So take it easy on it.

Not really a massive downside, but it could be lighter. It is not too heavy, but compared to some other carry on bags the same size, it is just a bit heavier.

And of course, if you’re not into heavy organising your luggage with plenty of dedicated pockets, this might not be for you either.

Yes, this suitcase comes with a bigger prize tag, but considering all the extra gadgets and its durability make it a good investment for the organised frequent flyer.

So if you want a bag that is going to last a long time, buy this one! Check Price on Amazon.

Samsonite Cruisair

Checked 26″ Samsonite Cruisair – Medium Sized Hardside

Product Name: Samsonite Cruisair DLX 26″ Hardside Spinner Burgundy
Quick Description: Stylish, durable, ultra-protective
Size: 26 x 17 x 11 inches (28 x 17 x 12 including wheels and handles)
Weight: 12.3 lbs
Rating: 4.5 of 5
Colours: Burgundy, Anthracite (Price varies with colour)

One of the most important features on this medium-sized spinner suitcase is its sturdiness. When you read through the customer reviews, this will always be one of the main points. Yes, it gets scuffs and scratches when treated very roughly, but it doesn’t break and will protect your packed items due to its 100% polycarbonate construction on an aluminum frame.

Something noteable about this luggage is that it doesn’t have any exterior zippers, which makes it extra safe for your valuable belongings.

Other features include: four dual wheelsintegrated TSA lock, and retractable handle, and not to forget, it comes at a very affordable price! This spinner is also available in 21″ and 30″ (different prices apply).

When trying to find negatives for this luggage, there aren’t many that are obvious. One minor complaint would be the internal straps that are supposed to keep the luggage in check. If overloaded, they won’t be able to hold all of your belongings where they’re supposed to stay.

Another point is the weight for this item. At 12.3 lbs it is definitely on the heavier side, but due to its four dual spinner wheels it is still very easy to manouvre around the airport.

Be careful not to overpack this piece of luggage as it might make it hard to close the latch properly.

Travelpro Platinum Magna

29″Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 – Big Luxurious Expandable Softside

Product Name: Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 Expandable Spinner Suiter Suitcase, 29-in., Black
Quick Description: luxury, ultra-durable, expandable, perfect for business travel
Size: 29 x 20.5 x 12.75 inches (can expand another 2 inches)
Weight: 11.3 lbs
Rating: 4.5 of 5
Colours: Black, Olive (Price varies depending on colour)

As Travelpro states on their page, the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 series is the epitome of style. Customer reviews many times state that the Travelpro is their Go To luggage, especially for business travel.

The series is indeed perfect for business travel as it is luxury performance luggage. It features four dual self-aligning magnetic wheels going 360 degrees, which means they are responsive, moving in the direction you want the bag to move;  they are automatically going straight in any direction. The biggest size available, but still slides with zero effort.

Expandable up to an additional 2 inches makes sure you can fit everything in. Durable softside design, using ballistic nylon accented by stylish leather. It also features a suiter (which can be removed if not needed, freeing up extra weight of about 2.7lbs), which ensures wrinkle-free packing.

Comes with lifetime comprehensive warranty. These are just some of the many positive points of this excellent piece of luggage. We could easily tell you a lot more details, but these are the main points that have convinced us of the quality and usability.

One positive point that can also be seen as a negative is the suitcase’s wheels, which will always roll by themselves. This means, even at this size it is easy to direct, but it also needs to be attended to at all times so it won’t run away from you. This is especially to be remembered when you are walking down slopes.

The weight could also be seen as a minor negative point, as it is 11.3 lbs. Considering the size of the suitcase though and seeing as it is a hard side, it is still within a normal range.

Travelpro Maxlite

29″ Travelpro Maxlite – Affordable, Big, Expandable Softside

Product Name: Travelpro Maxlite 4 Expandable 29 Inch Spinner Suitcase, Black
Quick Description: Ultralight, durable, expandable
Size: 29 x 20 x 12 inches (31.5 x 21.75 x 12 including wheels and handles)
Weight: 9.46 lbs
Rating: 4.5 of 5
Colours: Black, Blue, Merlot, Grey, Purple, Slate Green (Price varies depending on colour)

If you like Travelpro and are looking for a big and expandable spinner, but don’t want to spend as much money, the Travelpro Maxlite is the next best option for you (after the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2).

This softside spinner is affordable, yet comes with the look, durability and overall quality of more expensive suitcases, when treated nicely.

This suitcase is ultralight and offers loads of room! You seem to be able to always fit another item in.

Insides and outsides are made of water repellent coating. Reviews tell us that even kids are able to move this bigger sized spinner suitcase with ease due to the 360 degree wheels.

​Although it seems effortless to move the suitcase on normal floors, carpeted floors might make it a bit harder. But, as it is a lightweight, even this shouldn’t be too hard.

There have been some reports on the durability of the wheels though, so if you are interested in this model, take it easy and don’t force the luggage to avoid the wheels to break off.

As it is a softside it tends to tear or rip when handled roughly. If this is something that happens after you checked the luggage, make sure to claim it with the airline to get it repaired and/or replaced.

This suitcase comes with limited lifetime warranty.​

Please also be aware that the sizing might not include wheels and handle (as it sometimes happens with spinner suitcases). See at top of this product description to find sizes including wheels and handle as well. The smallest size is not actually small enough to be used as a carry-on.

If you do run into problems with this luggage set, keep in mind that it comes with a 10-year limited global warranty.

Overall, this luggage set is very popular, affordable, a relative lightweight that is easy to handle.

  1. Thank you for such quick and wonderful reviews about the suitcases. It removes the stress factor when looking for the right one. I definitely know that this will be my go-to site for purchasing my next suitcase! Keep up the great work!

    1. Hi Christian,

      You are welcome. I’m glad to hear you liked the reviews. I was trying to keep them short, while still including the main points. That’s great to hear that you’ll be coming back for your next purchase. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  2. Hi Petra,

    thanks for putting together this very well written guide. As a traveller, I really like your helpful reviews! The Samsonite looks really cool (like a spaceship 🙂 ) and quite sturdy, I think I’m gonna get this one for our next trip, as my old, cheap one just broke.
    I’ll also need to get a good suitcase for my 3 year old son as well. Do you have any suggestions for me on this one?


  3. I love the carry on suitcase, the fact that its small and durable suits me, i hate big suitcase, but I like taking alot of clothes with me. I thought it was a bit expensive at first but then you state it has a integrated air valve which compresses your clothing so you can fit more in, how handy!

    1. Hi Kourtney,

      Yes, that’s true, when you first look at the Genius Pack, it may seem a bit pricey, but it’s sooo worth it because of all the extra gimmicks. And I think it’ll last for a long time too.

      Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  4. I like the suitcases with two wheels instead of four. Dealing with fewer wheels just fits my personality, but it is good to read that these spinner ones are durable. Durability is essential in buying a suitcase.

  5. Love it! Especially liking the Genius Pack with all its extras for easy organizing. And I like the look of the Samsonite Cruisair too! Next I would love to see a review on the suitcase that you can sit on and it motors around!
    Thanks for sharing all the spinner reviews, I will use this for my next purchase. Lovely site!

    1. Hi Skylar, thank you for your post 🙂 I’m glad you liked it so much. I will look into the suitcase with the motor and let you know once I have a review up 🙂

  6. You know one thing my wife and I never got off of our wedding registry was the luggage we registered for. Thanks for comparing these different suitcases. The 22″ Genius Pack is very intriguing. I didn’t know they were making suitcases with air valves now. Is that common? Does it help make a decent difference as far as lightening the weight of the suitcase? Thanks again for the info!

    1. Hi Jeremy, no it’s not very common to have air valves included, but maybe it will be in the future, who knows? It’s certainly a great idea, I think. Genius Pack are geniuses at making luggage that is highly organised and helps with getting more things into your suitcase. It wouldn’t make a massive difference to the weight, but you’d be able to get heaps more in than without compressing it. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  7. Hi. I really appreciate your post. I’m thinking about buying a set that’s affordable and seeing that so many other people have bought the At Pops Plus really helps with my decision. Love it. Thanks for sharing.

  8.  I love the selection you have done of spinner suit cases. I have to travel a lot and have had some experience buying suitcases. So I have esteemed many of your recommendations. You have surely traveled more than me and your suggestions are very helpful.

    Of all the options you describe here, the one that makes me click is the Checked 26″ Samsonite Cruisair.

  9. I like the 29 Travelpro Maxlite for its simple design and its lots of space to accommodate several needs of a traveller.

    Also like the water repellent coating of  the suitcase this makes it suitable for all kinds of weather conditions. What more does someone need in a suitcase? Apart from maybe a carry on as well as a checked one.
