- Very good stability, unlike competing models.
- Large, double wheels (8 total) add stability and are very good on city streets (good for urban travelers; see below)
- Can be pulled like a two-wheel easily on rougher terrain, but still glide smoothly on all four wheels in the airport.
-Mine came with a very lightweight nylon bag, a triangle-shaped type with a drawstring closure with two cords connected to the outer corners, making it useful as a little daypack comfortable with a little jacket, sun glasses case, a hat and a few other things inside. Also good as a laundry bag.
- handle long enough for me to use in any position - I am 6"
- internal compression straps are dinky and do not compress, really. This would not be such a big deal except that compression helps you pack for stability and keep heavy objects or stacks of clothes close to the center of the bag's gravity.
- 30% more than i wanted to spend.
The bag I wanted was the Victorinox Avolve 22" thanks to a very thoughtful and exhaustive review a customer posted on the Amazon listing, but decided that it was out of my price range (and I do not travel as much as that reviewer, by a long shot). I almost bought the very affordable Samsonite Dkx 21" from a discount store but abandoned the purchase when I saw Amazon reviewers found it unstable and prone to falling over (a most inconvenient feature in a bag style people seek out for its convenience).
What I did not see addressed in any review were my particular needs: I fly regularly between two cities where, on each end, I use public transport and eventually end up pulling my luggage many blocks of city streets before I reach my destination. (I assume many Amazon reviewers go from the airport to their destinations by car). In my case, I was concerned to have a stable rolling suitcase that can handle some measure of slushy, uneven sidewalks. My older, much larger two-wheeled samsonite with in-line skate wheels has done that job well. but two-wheel models are somewhat difficult to maneuver on a subway or crowded bus because you need specific leverage on the wheels when pushing the bag, and need the wheels oriented just so when pulling it, and crowded environments don't always make that easy. I therefore wanted a 'spinner' with wheels that can be pulled over rougher terrain like a two-wheeler.
The Hyperspace appears to fit the bill. I have only taken it on one plane trip, but have used it a great deal to transport groceries from my car to my apartment. it remains stable even when somewhat topheavy, and the wheels ride smoothly on sidewalk, including through patches of dust and pebbles that can collect in curbs.
In all, I think it is a good choice for people who anticipate terrain beyond the airport curb, and want to the full benefit of a spinner.
Update: I have now used the bag for five junkets. One started out on public transit in Chicago to Ohare, a flight to Boston, into a taxi to a conference, then on Boston public transit to a bus to New York city to public transit to Brooklyn, then back on the subway and a bus to Laguardia, back to O'hare and onto the subway, and a 1/4 mile walk to my apartment. It is a stable champ, maneuverable in all kinds of crowds, and not a burden. You are not supposed to lift it by its pulling handle, but I do - with lots of heavy stuff in it - and I do not see any ill effects. I am glad I bought it, and I regret buying many, many things.
Balance. It is well balanced as long as you don't have something heavy in the exterior pockets like hardback books or a computer. I had a couple paperback books in the exterior pockets and a netbook computer. I found that it only lost balance when on sloped or rough surfaces. On flat smooth surfaces, it never tipped over while rolling or standing.
Durability. The material cleans easily and maintains a bright, new look. I put it through checked bag punishment on 6 flights. Hard plastic lines the right places to limit damage to the cloth portions. After wiping the bag down after my trip, the cloth seems new like with nearly zero fraying. Only by looking really close did I notice some fuzz on the center spine of the exterior pocket. Other than that, I was amazed at what little damage the cloth took because we all know what kind of punishment these things go through when checked. As for protecting what's inside, I had a bottle of wine, computer, a glass bottle of olive oil and a vase that made it through with one layer of bubble wrap and a couple plastic shopping bags around each. I am sure this bag helped the items survived. For curbs, there is hard plastic to protect the bag if you drag it up a curb. Understandably, the plastic gets scuffed up, but that section of the bag seems well designed so the cloth does not get damaged.
Weight. This bag is super light. Everything seems well-padded and takes a beating, but manages to do so with all lightweight materials. I could probably throw this bag 20 feet when empty. It feels like nothing. For such a light bag, it doesn't make sense how sturdy it is, but I am super happy with it...both tougher and lighter than any previous luggage I've owned.
Storage. The two exterior pockets are handy for frequently accessed items, books, and papers. When full, they do not encroach on interior space like other bags. The interior wet bag pocket made for a nice isolated place that I could put my dress in. The mesh pocket, I used to keep electronics. This bag comes with a small laundry bag, which can be worn as a back pack. I found this useful for going shopping so I wasn't collecting plastic bags and also for day trips to the beach. This bag will fit into overhead bins as a carry-on. On U.S. flights, you can put it in wheels first or wheels out depending on the airline. On international flights, the bag may need to go in sideways to fit, but it will fit unless you're on a small aircraft. I travel light and was able to bring everything I needed for a 4-week vacation, including a couple nice outfits and bathing suits. I also had the Hyperspace boarding bag, which fits nicely over the extended handle of the spinner.
Handles. The side handle is designed to slip back into the body of the bag when not in use. It helps the bag keep a low-profile and not get damaged or hung up. The top handle is softly padded and comfortable. There is a bottom handle that I've never seen before, but it makes it easier than a regular handle to lift the bag up when it is on its back or wheels. This is handy when loading it into a car. The extendable handle does seem flimsy, but it isn't, so I had no issues with it. I figure it helps keep the weight of the bag down, which is one of the best benefits of this bag.
I would recommend this bag to anyone. It performed beyond my expectations and I was not easy on it! For the price of $110, it is insanely affordable for this kind of quality. This was my first set of Samsonite luggage and I love it. It is incredibly tough and it is worth it to get a nice set of luggage that will last a long time, rather than some discount luggage that you'll never love and will have to replace more frequently or worse, cause damage to your belongings. So, travel in style with a smart bag like this one. I hope you have as much luck and fun with it as I did.
If you're like me and want the Solar Rose color, I can say that Ionic Pink is very close. Imagine Solar Rose, but with a slight touch of red. Side-by-side the cases are clearly of the same design--the same construction, same overall shape, same features. Ionic Pink is just a tiny bit redder than Solar Rose--so if you like or already have Solar Rose, the Ionic Pink color is a perfectly fine compliment to the Solar Rose.
As for the case itself: I'm infatuated with the spinner wheels. It makes moving the luggage SO much simpler. This case also has really smart design: a comfortable handle at a good height, sturdy construction, pockets exactly where you want them. The top small outer pocket is the perfect size for a 3-1-1 bag for TSA regulations. The top carry handle is padded, and there's a folded piece of canvas on the bottom of the bag you can use as another handle when you need to lift it into the carryon space of the plane. The case comes with a small collapsable and removable bag--I use it to keep my dirty clothes separate from my clean cloths while travelling, and it's a nice backup if you end up buying too much--you can use it as an extra bag or day bag.
In short: this is a great bag, and this rec is coming from someone who travels a lot, mostly with just a single carryon.
