4.0 out of 5 stars Not for Carry-On, June 26, 2014
This review is from: Samsonite Lightweight Two-Piece Softside Spinner Set (Spinner 21/Spinner 25) (Apparel)
I recently purcahsed new luggage and checked these out thoroughly, but ended up going with the Travelpro Crew 9 21 and 25 spinners instead (for less money). These are nice suitcases that seem durable, light, and very practical with the choice of compartments. They roll much nicer than some of the cheap Samsonite luggage, but no better than other luggage I tried at the same price point.

I wanted to review these mainly because I noticed the 21" seemed too big to qualify as a carry-on. While the body of the 21" suitcase is indeed 21", the total height was a few inches more because the wheels are not counted as part of the 21". The airline I was using for my trip had posted that the max height and width allowed were 22" x 14". This accomodated the Travelpro 21" (and most other 21" luggage), but not the Samsonite 21", which was more like 24" x 15".

I would recommend these if you like the look and don't plan to carry-on the 21" piece.

Danielle says:
I did buy them (not from Amazon). I also returned them because I didn't want to pay for an extra checked bag due to the actual height of the 21". This is not something you would know from the item description so I thought it would be helpful, which apparently it was to 10 people. I tried not to be too harsh because I didn't travel with them, but after using the travelpro I am convinced they were the better choice.

Actually, I'm glad Danielle did point out the extra dimensions which rule it out as a carryon for some airlines. Very helpful to me.

There are plenty of reviews on Amazon that point out why they didn't buy one item and chose another.

Danielle's feedback was truly appreciated....I would not have known they dimensions did not fit as a carry on. Thanks!

But, they are acceptable for check-in, yes?
