The Samsonite Luggage Hyperspace XLT Spinner 21 Exp is quality luggage from a respectable name. There are a few quirks in some units, but the warranty covers any breakage issues that may occur. For simple travel needs, this is a great buy for everyone in the household.
- Tough Material
Lightweight nylon/polyester fabric is durable while giving an elegant appearance. The material is coated with SamGuard protection to guard against water, oil, and minor stains. Four color options allow you to decide how much you want your luggage to stand out in a crowd or rotating luggage rack.
- Pocket Power
Depending on how you pack and what your needs entail, this case can provide enough room for up to three weeks of essentials. However, most people use it for a long weekend. All pockets are fully lined. The deep inner pocket has a ceiling-to-floor set of compression tie downs to keep clothing secure. Two zippered exterior pockets, including a full-front pocket, allow last minute incidentals, a jacket, or quick access for tickets and passport. The full case expands 2” for maximum capacity.
- Ergonomic Aluminum Handle
Pull handles are made of anodized aluminum. This is stronger than previous Samsonite offerings and resists corrosion and wear far longer than normal aluminum handles. The push button/locking telescopic reach is impressive. And the grips are ergonomically designed to comfortably fit most hands.
- Spinner Wheels
The Hyperspace XLT comes with quad wheels for extra convenience. The multi-directional dual spinner wheel roll upright so tipping the bag is never necessary. This ensures a weightless travel experience for your arms and shoulders. In the event the wheels can’t be used, or their practicality is reduced, reinforced grip handles are a secondary option.
Most customers agree that Hyperspace XLT Spinner 21 Exp is a great looking, durable bag that easily adapts to their needs. The expansion potential and extra color options make this a joy to use time and time again. However, if packed too full the case falls over onto its front pockets. That can cause damage to technological devices that may be stored within. Sometimes the bag tips randomly even when it’s not full. Some customers also find issues with a loose aluminum handle. But overall, most love it and find it works like a charm – minus that annoying tip concern.
Does the Samsonite Luggage Hyperspace XLT Spinner 21 Exp live up to its expectations? It’s a Samsonite, so it’s better than a lot of cases on the market. But the weak design that leads to tipping, and the occasional loose telescopic handle are serious considerations. There are other Samsonite models that cost a little more but don’t display those issues. While this size case fits most aircraft overhead compartments, some smaller jets will require it to be checked. However, for the current price point, it’s a good buy.
