If you’ve been following me along, you know I am almost exclusively a carry-on ONLY girl. However, there are a few times during traveling that I can justify a checked bag:
- Traveling to 1 international destination for a week or more without moving flights
- Going on a cruise
- Traveling during winter months where heavier clothing is needed
- Long road trips where I can keep everything in one place
When I do checked luggage, its because one of the 4 above items are taking place. I can pack more stuff and have more freedom.
Recently I went on a cruise for a week and brought the 28″ Pinnacle from iFLY Luggage with me. I was able to fit everything I needed for my trip in the suitcase and still had room and was under the weight restrictions. WIN!
My favorite features of this suitcase are the 4 wheels that give 360 degree mobility and how lightweight it is. When I was pushing my suitcase through the airport and ship it felt like air.
- 28″ x 21″ x 13″
- 11.2 lbs; 5.1 kg
- 4 easy-spin double wheels
- 10-year warranty
- Virgin PC/ABS
- Soft-grip carry handles
- Expansion zipper increases packing space
- Deluxe full lining pocket creates second compartment
- Multi-stage telescopic trolley handle system
- Adjustable tie-down straps to keep clothes in place
The 10 year honest warranty is such a bonus to get with a suitcase. When you travel, things happen. It’s nice that a company can offer such a thing and give you that benefit.
Here is what the inside of my suitcase looked like packed for my cruise:
As you can see I kept clothing on one side and shoes and everything else on the other. The two straps on the one side of the suitcase kept everything tied down that was not under the zippered side.
I am a big advocate of packing cubes. Whether you are carry-on or checked bag, it is a great way to sort your clothes and keep them together when traveling.
I liked the two additional pockets within the suitcase. I use the side pocket for chargers and cords and the long inside pocket for adult coloring materials (yes, I am 33 and love to color – it is very therapeutic).
I love this suitcase and how sleek and stylish it is. I am packing it today to use it again for a cold destination and excited to use it again. This suitcase is very affordable compared to other suitcases on the market – it is $79 and has the 10 year warranty. It can be purchased online or at Walmart if you prefer to take a look before you purchase it.
Having used all kinds of suitcases in my life from the pricing of $25-$300, I can tell you that I am in love with iFLY suitcases and their low prices.
