I love to travel. Over the last four years I bet I have averaged a trip about every 7 weeks and boy does my luggage show it! The corners of my most-used suitcase are completely undone to the point that the metal frame of the suitcase actually sticks out several inches past the fabric of the suitcase. I have to be careful in the airport not to catch it on anything.
It was with open arms that I welcomed the Atlantic Ultra LITE into my life. It was love at first feel! I’m not kidding; the carry handle on this suitcase is so soft and squishy that I could squeeze it as a stress reliever in long lines at the airport. I’m sorry, did I say handle?! I meant handles, there are three!
The second thing I noticed right away was the protective corner guards. I know I won’t be pulling luggage with protruding metal corners ever again!
I also love that:
• The pockets on the outside are usable. They are deep enough that you don’t have to decide if it’s worth scraping the zipper against the dry, sensitive back of your hand in winter.
• The wheels are actually inline skate wheels! They are durable and smooth rolling.
• The handle locks into two separate heights so I can have it lower for me but someone taller could use it on the highest setting.
• The entire suitcase weights just 6 ½ lbs!!
Look at how roomy the inside is and this is just 22 inches long!
I saved the best for last…the Atlantic Luggage Ultra Lite 22 Inch Upright sells on Amazon for less than $70!
Is new luggage on your Mother’s Day Wish List?!
**Many thanks to Atlantic Luggage for providing an Ultra Lite for this review. You know, it’s a tough job, but someone has to do it!
