What do Customers Say

According to the samsonite lift spinner reviews of many buyers it’s an outstanding bag. However we wouldn’t do a good job reviewing the best carry on bags if we only mentioned the positive ones, so we also quoted some negative comments.

Some of the best reviews:

What more do I want. Can’t think of anything.

I have severe and chronic back problems and have looked long and hard for a lightweight spinner case that I can easily pack and manoeuver. This is it.

Love it Love it Love it……….wheels great, lightweight, I have NO problems with it falling over I can fly through airports, just lay my arm on top of the handle and it goes without any effort.

My Husband loves this so much he “stole” mine

But some people were not so happy with this Samsonite 21 spinner:

Item has advertised size of 20.5″ x 15″ which is the allowed carry-on size for most airlines. BUT that does not include the wheels — by adding the wheels the size is 23.5″.

WARNING: 21 inch measurement does not include wheels. Is not compliant with carry on restrictions

The problem with this one is that the handle does not expand all the way.

Bottom Line

The Samsonite Lift 21 Spinner Luggage is a lightweight bag. Due to the fact that this is the 21 inch version it’s ideal as carry on luggage. It should fit any overhead compartment on any flight. However people have been complaining about the wheels which add to the size. If you take into account the wheels on this Samsonite bag it’s 23.5″ and not within the size limits anymore for a real carry on. Something to think about!

The fact that it can pack extra (because it’s softsided and thus expandable) is good news when you come back from your vacation abroad and want to bring home some extra stuff like souvenirs.

If you’re willing to pay a bit more than 100$ for this great bag then it can be yours in no time! Is it worth it’s price? According to the positive reviews it sure is!
