Customer Review

Reviewed in the United States on March 1, 2019
I bought the 'TravelPro Maxlite 5' luggage: 19-inch International carryon roller and 18" under-the-seat shoulder bag carryon. Love it. If you pack it right, you can actually pack for up to a 3-week trip between the two.

Note that I studied how to pack prior to my trip. I'll share what I was able to pack in a moment. I used this lightweight set (5.3 pounds- truly lightweight!) with other very functional items to optimize packing:

1. Compression Packing Cubes (two medium, one small + one packing 'tube' for socks and undergarments) made of lightweight parachute, water-resistant material (Eagle Creek 2-zipper system- you don't need to use a vacuum)

2. One travel garment bag for my business clothes (one Eagle Creek - large. Made of same ligjtweight parachute material with lightweight folding board tool + velcro straps to compress clothes and keep them pretty much wrinkle-free)

3. Two single-pair shoe bags (Eagle Creek -they're aerated plastic covered in small mesh black netting)

4. Cofreya travel-sized, silicon gel bottles that don't burst under pressure in high altitudes- and are airline approved for size).

By rolling clothes (except those in the garment bag), I was ankle to pack:

a. 3 dresses
b. 2 skirts
c. 1 pair of pants
d. 2 yoga 'sweats' outfits including both tops and pants
e. 2 pullover sweaters (wore one on plane)
f. pajamas
g. 2 additional leggings + 2 camisoles
h. 1 pair leather pumps
I. over-the-ankle leather dress boots
j. 1 pair Uggs boots (wore these on plane)
k. accessories- 2 full-sized scarves, packable purse to use during the trip, mittens, ear muff etc.
I. 3 turtleneck tops
m. 3 camisole tops
o. Small - lightweight business briefcase 'envelope'
p. electronics: small tablet, phone, etc.

...all that AND a bag of chips and small snacks! (and no, I didn't end up using the expandable zippered area of the luggage).

Note: To prolong the parade of clean clothes, I also packed Travelon & Tide travel laundry detergent + Travelon travel bathtub laundry clothesline (no clothes pins needed) and quickly sink-washed items each night).

Anyway, just sharing the details to show the capability - (and packability) of these 2 bags when using the right tools.

The bags themselves are high quality and have a warranty. The pretty, dusty rose color I bought is wonderful AND it's easy to spot should someone other than you decide to take your luggage.

Really appreciate the 360 degree rollers since I have the option of pushing the luggage alongside me instead of always having to pull it. Three telescopic handle gave several options e.g. when putting the shoulder bag on top the suitcase - or not. The design maximized space.

I've included photos showing that the shoulder bag fits under smaller planes such as the UAL Airbus planes I boarded. You must insert the bag on its back rather than standing up - and it will easily fit.

Great purchase and value, functional, lightweight design, high quality.
