I had a good piece of old, trusty luggage that I used when I first travelled abroad. Unfortunately, by the time I came back a year later, the wheels had worn out. I was carrying it in its full capacity and it was just too heavy for the poor thing. I was literally dragging the luggage at the airport and it was so inconvenient. The bottom was scratched, and although the body was still good, I knew it wouldn’t serve its purpose as my travelling companion anymore. So I had to look for a replacement.
The Samsonite Luggage Fiero has a tough exterior. I can already tell how durable it is just by looking at it. The hard case tells it all. It is made of polycarbonate, a lightweight material that is impact-resistant, scratch-resistant and water-repellant. I consider its lightweight feature important because I usually travel with a lot of things and I don’t want to pay for the extra weight at the airlines.
This luggage is not impact-proof or scratch-proof, so I wouldn’t try testing it by hammering or purposely scratching it. It means it can only withstand certain standard impacts and scratches one encounters during travelling. The wheels are of great significance too, since the wheels on my other luggage wore out over time. I need luggage wheels that don’t just rotate but that are able to withstand the luggage weight as well. It’s a good thing this particular luggage has 4 rotating wheels.
It’s amazing how this luggage can withstand the weight and be mobile too. Unlike my old luggage (which only had two rotating wheels), this one is easier to maneuver during transportation and trips. You only have to push and turn with this one, no dragging needed. The inside is very spacious. The shape is just the right size for me to fit my all my items, and boy do I have a lot!
I would recommend this product for people who are travelling on a rough road trip as long as it is lying on its back. One wouldn’t need to worry about stuff getting broken during the trip. A person carrying important gadgets such as a laptop or iPad can use this because of its solidly built case and anti-theft device. There is a limited choice of colors available for women though. I would prefer a dark red color if there were one available and I imagine other women would prefer that too. See more details behind the making of this awesome hardshell case:
I rate this luggage a 4.5 because of the lack of color options, but all in all, this one would be perfectly worthy to be my travelling companion.
