Samsonite is one of the most recognized brands in the world… yes, in the world. It ranks right up there with Coke, IBM, Apple and Fritos in terms of name recognition. Samsonite has been manufacturing luggage for a long time…and is recognized by virtually anyone who has ever traveled with a suitcase. Samsonite has a huge following in their luggage collections: Silhouette is a long running collection and Samsonite recently launched the Samsonite Silhouette 12 collection… yes, 12! Wow. But here’s another Samsonite collection that is destined for a long ride (pardon the pun): the Samsonite L.I.F.T. collection.
Samsonite calls it their Light Meets Might collection. Why? In it’s LIFT collection, Samsonite has built a rugged, durable and extremely lightweight suitcase. The 29” upright weighs in at 10 pounds… extremely light for a large, wheeled suitcase. And, the 21” carry on bag – aka: cabin bag, is a mere 6.2 lbs! Think about that the next time you are planning to carry your luggage onboard. The Samsonite LIFT luggage is a very lightweight luggage!. Offered as both a spinner case or the traditional wheeled upright, the Samsonite L.I.F.T. offers great value, and lightweight durability.
One of the many features that makes the Samsonite L.I.F.T. collection so lightweight is the material or fabric that it is made from: Tricore Polyester. This is a fabric that is resistant to punctures, tears and road wear and offers greater tear strength, better seam breakage results, and strong abrasion strength. Plus this new Samsonite luggage fabric is 30% lighter than its nylon counterparts.
So, what does L.I.F.T. stand for: well, Samsonite Luggage got clever here… L.I.F.T stands for: Lightweight Innovations For Travel. Clever name, great luggage at a great value. My prediction is that the Samsonite LIFT luggage will be around for a long time. Guess that’s why Samsonite is one of the world’s most recognized luggage brands!
