For any serious traveller, your luggage of choice is a big deal. It needs to be durable, functional and good looking. Your luggage has to carry all of your belongings, and it needs to be easy to roll too! Given how much Paul and I travel, the quality of our luggage is non-negotiable. When you visit more than 12 hotels in one month, and half as many flights, you need luggage that you can count on. This is exactly why we’ve been primarily using Samsonite for the past five years, and it’s also why I’m so excited to share a product review of the Samsonite Winfield 3 luggage set.
To start with, the Winfield 3 collection comes in three sizes: carry-on, medium and large. As always, we prefer buying luggage in sets of three. The carry-on size is perfect for weekend trips, the medium size is ideal for a week or two away, and the largest size is what I use when we head to Europe for a month! The polycarbonate design of the Winfield 3 collection is lightweight, yet extremely durable. I especially love how the hard side luggage has a bit of flexibility to it, which means it’s highly unlikely to break under pressure. This set also comes with built-in TSA locks and the medium and large pieces have expandable sides to make room for all of my overseas shopping.
One of the most important things I look for in a luggage set, is how well they roll. There’s nothing worse than struggling with multiple suitcases while trying to get from a train station to your hotel! We took the Winfield 3 set to Toronto’s Distillery District to give these babies a test spin on uneven roadways. Not only were the suitcases easy to maneuver, but I had no problem rolling two pieces at once along the bumpy road. The described “zero effort 4 wheel spinner” could not be a more accurate description of this collection’s usability!
The interior of this luggage is what really sold me. I love how the inside is separated into two main compartments with a fabric divider! I’m a very OCD packer, so anything that allows me to compartmentalize my belongs is perfect. With this set up, I’ll be able to pack all my clothes on one side and my accessories and toiletries on the other. Having a perfectly organized suitcase may not seem important, but when you travel for long periods of time like I do, having everything easily accessible is a huge time saver. This layout would also be useful if you were sharing a suitcase for a weekend getaway, and you wanted to have one side each.
I’m in love with the Samsonite Winfield 3 set! I’m very pleased with the quality and sleek look of this set. I’m also very much looking forward to using my first-ever hard side luggage in Europe this summer. I’ve always loved how chic hard side luggage is – and now I can arrive at the airport in style. This three piece set is currently available in black and blue on the Samsonite Canada website, and it’s currently on sale for more than 50% off the MSRP. Happy travels!
