As you know we recently traveled back to South Africa for my mom’s 70th birthday party. I am sure you can imagine travelling that far, with a toddler, for 3.5 weeks, requires a lot of planning and preparation.
Luckily for us we teamed up with American Tourister and received their BRAND NEW iLite Max 29″ Spinner suitcase before we jetted off.
I have traveled back and forth to South Africa many times in the past 17 years and this was the first time I made the trip with such an amazingly LIGHT suitcase. Really I cannot stress enough how light this case is. Preparing to be out of the country for an extended period of time you need a lot of ‘stuff’ and a lot of ‘stuff’ requires a suitcase that is light to start with, otherwise the case alone takes up half your allowed weight for that suitcase.
After the weight, or lack there of, my next favorite feature is the spinner wheels that come on the iLite Max bags. I love that there is no strain on my arms and shoulders as you’re able to push the case along on the multi-directional wheels. Travelling with a toddler you realize how much this helps out, having that extra hand to corral them and keep them where they’re supposed to be is key, so anything that helps the process is a winner in my eyes.
As with all America Tourister bags, the features don’t end there. Let’s not forget the internal tie down straps to keep your stuff snug and in place. Plus the zippered compartments in the lid make it easy to keep your toiletries etc separate from your clothing, or any other items you’d prefer be separated.
I know not everyone needs a 29″ suitcase, of course American Tourister has you covered as the new iLite Max line comes in three sizes: 21”, 25”, 29”, plus boarding bag and garment bags – something for everyone!! Also, the iLite Max bags are able to expand to fit in all you need, OR to be able to pack what you bought while you were away. Priced between $80 to $140 the iLite Max line is a great value for money – I am confident I’ll be using this suitcase for a very long time!!
Of course the fun, bright colors these cases are available in, including the new colors; tangerine, purple, light blue, raspberry and black, make them that much more fun AND easy to find on the luggage carousel.
