Samsonite has introduced the new luggage collection Samsonite Leverage LTE that is geared towards the business traveler but has been highly embarrassed by the leisure vacationer as well. The Leverage LTE uses durable materials including the fadric, wheels, zippers, and handle system which we expect from an inline traditional luggage series from Samsonite.
On par, the LEVERAGE LTE series continues Samsonite tradition of using extremely durable fabric made of 100% nylon that is tear resistant, water repellent and able to resist wear do to abrasion as well. Each of the three spinner upright luggage are equipped with dual spinner wheels for a smooth and stable rolling experience. The handle system is extremely durable and easy use with its telescoping action that locks into place in both the up and down position. The spinners come in a carry-on 20” spinner upright, 25″ spinner upright, and a very large 29″ spinner upright for those longer trips. The Carry on size fits most airline carry-on restrictions including many international flights. Each are extremely light weight with the 20 inch coming in at 8 lbs, the midsize 25 inch at 9.5 lbs, and a impressive 10 lbs for the 29 inch. Samsonite has recognized that weight really matters when it comes to Leverage Series and travelers have responded positively to this collection because of it. We also liked the fact that there are three grab points on the spinners which include a top, side and bottom grab handle for easy lifting and handling into trunks, onto beds, or into overhead bins.
Another very handy feature we like was the side outside pocket on each of the upright spinners. This gives the traveler the ability to stash something like an umbrella or travel documents or any small item you wish to easily access on the go. Very few suitcases have incorporated this feature over the years which we find to be very useful for any traveler but especially the business traveler. This is most like a feature carried over from Samsonite’s popular business travel collection called DK3. Samsonite also uses a durable zipper that is self repairing and easy to use. Even if the zipper comes separated, it is easy to correct the problem by simply pushing the zipper back to the starting position.
The interior of the Samsonite Leverage LTE Spinners boast multiple pockets including places for shoes and a smaller zippered mesh pocket ideal for smaller items like scarfs, sashes or neck ties. The lid also has large seperate packing section that includes a zip out garment folder that you can use to pack hanging clothes such as suits, pants, dresses or blouses. The garment folder helps prevent wrinkles and keeps your hanging garments nice and neat but also is detachable if you decide you want to just pack folded clothes or other items instead. Other interior feature includes a tied down feature via cross straps secured by a buckle. This helps secure packing in place to reduce shifting of clothes during transit and resulting in less wrinkles on your garments. The Samsonite LEVERAGE LTE also expands to give you an additional packing space. This is very useful when you want to take those extra items or bring back gifts from your trip.
Another popular item in the Leverage LTE collection is the Samsonite Leverage LTE Wheeled Boarding Bag. Designed to meet the most constrained carry on restrictions, this rolling tote fits under most airlines seats for easy access and hassle free boarding. Some great features include quick access outside pocket with organization, telescoping handle system, top carry handle, and generous main packing compartment with panel for papers or magazines. This handy wheeled tote makes use of inline skate wheels for a smooth rolling and maneuvering through airports. This piece definitely makes a helpful travel companion for any trip.
