The Travelpro Luggage Maxlite3 22 Inch Expandable Rollaboard 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.
- Quality Materials
The ultralight Maxlite 3 is made with the consumer in mind. Lightweight polyester fabric is coated with a waterproof sealant to protect your investment and belongings from weather or mishaps. Aluminum additions and solid plastic fittings make this a tough piece of quality luggage at an affordable price.
- Easy Access
The Honeycomb frame system easily supports this multi-pocket bag. Large interior compartment with a small incidentals pocket and opposing full-length interior mesh pocket readily organize all of your daily essentials. The compartment can be extended an extra 2 inches for maximum storage. A full-length laptop, tablet, or last minute items pocket can be accessed from the front of the unit. And directly in front of that is a somewhat smaller front pocket for your wallet, passport, tickets, or other small essentials. Three padded grab handles add to the ease, flexibility, and comfort of the luggage system.
- Aluminum Handle
Travelpro uses only airline-grade aluminum in their luggage handles. The Maxlite3’s handle locks in either a 38 inch or 42.5 inch position for personalized comfort. The extendable trolley handle and case grab handle offer an ergonomic design for easy access.
- Gliding Wheels
Most premium priced luggage comes with wheels, but few are as sturdy as Travelpro. We’re not talking typical clip on junk that’s guaranteed to snap off after a few uses. The Travelpro Luggage Maxlite3 contains 2 bumpered gliding wheels for easy portability. These sealed, ball bearing, inline skate wheels won’t go anywhere until you give the command.
Customers are primarily excited about this bag. It’s lightweight and roomy for most basic needs. However, some find it’s far too small for the week or two worth of supplies it claims to hold. Packing too heavily causes the luggage to fall over. It is, however, the perfect solution for a weekend getaway or a longer camp or vacation solution for kids. The case is rugged, waterproof, and durable.
However, the garment section of the bag is tricky. This is a design flaw with all Travelpro bags. To use the garment option, you have to lie the bag out fully on the floor or bed as opposed to hanging it. Otherwise, the bag is upside down and everything falls out. The other issue with the bag is the weak extension handle. The handle is attached with two weak pins. It tends to wiggle right out of the box and has been known to break with normal use.
Does the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite3 22 Inch Expandable Rollaboard live up to the hype? Well, the weak handle is a serious issue for all Travelpro styles. For some reason it’s a major design flaw. But customer service is great and the lifetime warranty covers all serious exchange issues. As for the bag itself, it’s a good quality, rugged case that can hold most of your most important traveling essentials. It fits easily in most aircraft carry on compartments. And the smooth roll inline wheels keep up with you regardless of where life takes you. Overall, it’s a great buy.
