Not all travel is about bare necessities, backpacking, trying to beat the airlines' free carry-on system. Sometimes, travel is about the long-distance, long-term journey. Sometimes, it's about a large family traveling. Sometimes, it might be about a temporary or permanent change of assignment/move. In those situations, you need a suitcase that stands up to everything you can throw in it! Pathfinder has just such a big daddy of a suitcase to the rescue! I was happy to be hosted to experience it.
I took the Revolution Plus Collection 29" Expandable Spinner with Suiter on a two-person, two city, one week journey to the South -- as our only suitcase. This made it convenient on rainy, last-minute dashes into hotels, everything could be accounted for. The suitcase has two outside pockets, great for laundry, stashing pamphlets and papers you might need, shoes that you want to keep away from clothing, etc. The suiter is a separate envelope into which you can keep dress shirts, etc. neat and perfect.
The spinner wheels make the bag easy to roll and turn corners. It's definitely got a distinctive luxe look in Cobalt.
The hardy materials and tough YKK didn't strain or bust, even with all the stuff I packed. Which leads me to say . . . how do I say this without hurting your feelings? You will be able to pack more into the bag than you may be able to lift! So, consider the weight of things you stash not merely from the draconian airline rules, but also what you will be able to grab out of a car, etc.
