Life constantly sends little reminders throughout the years that playfully nudge me into remembering I’m not a fly by the seat of my pants college kid anymore. During my most recent jab I came to the clear realization that I’m too darn old to shove all of my belongings into an overpacked carry-on bag and chuck it in the overhead bin. I’m so over it. I don’t want to be that annoying person on the flight boinking everyone on the head with their duffle, or ankle breaking passengers with my luggage because they can’t get their TSA regulated (and I say that loosely,) bag down the narrow aisle. I‘m a grown-up and it’s time for me to check my bags.
Something for Everyone
But c’mon I don’t want to check 3 bags for 3 people for just one or two nights when we flee the Southland for the weekend either. That’s a big fat hassle and such a waste of cashola. I knew I was looking for a reputable piece of luggage, and I wanted it to look sleek, chic and sophisticated as well. Then this little Christmas miracle arrived early right in time for our annual Let It Snow weekend at Four Seasons Hotel Westlake Village to kick off the holidays. She was everything I was looking for. Not to mention the perfect size for this one who is VERY picky now that she’s entering the “tween” stage.
Clearly, SWISSGEAR understands my needs + wants regardless if we’re jetsetting across the globe or commuting to the next city with my family. The 24″ Hardside Spinner was perfect when it came to packing for three. In fact, looks can be deceiving. It may look small and compact (24 x 16 x 10.5 in,) but it can handle just more than a quick weekend getaway. So much that we have every intention of bringing it for the three of us when we’re east coast bound for a week!
My favorite part? The polypropylene hardshell construction with eight 360 degree multidirectional wheels, is only 8.3 lbs. It’s perfect. Lightweight durability is every serious travelers dream come true. And the telescopic handle is made of sturdy aluminum with push button locking mechanism.
Complete with TSA approved combination lock for added security, the split case design features two packing compartments complete with zip panel divider with built-in pockets as well as an adjustable luggage strap to neatly secure clothing.
Oh, and did I mention she’s pretty?
