Traveling just got easier with the Travelpro Luggage Atlantic Ultra Lite 2 Upright 21” Spinner Suitcase. I’ve traveled by airplane several times in the last few years and I always struggle with my carry on bags. I try to do curbside check in for my checked bags but then I find myself dragging my carry on bags throught the airport and with my previous bags I had to tilt them to move around. A friend of mine that I traveled with several months ago had a suitcase with 360 degree spinner wheels. When I saw how easily she moved through the airport I knew I had to get a new suitcase. I contacted TravelPro and they sent me the Atlantic Ultra Lite 2 21” Spinner Suitcase to review. It was perfect timing because I was traveling by myself to Denver the following month and I knew it would come in handy.
The first thing I noticed about the Atlantic Ultra Lite 2 21” Spinner Suitcase was the color. I received the magenta color and I love it. It is between a pink and a purple and unlike the millions of black suitcases out there, I’ll be able to easily recognize mine if I ever did have to check it when traveling. It is very light weight which is so important these days when airlines are charging for overweight luggage. I’d rather have more of my own stuff weigh down my bag then the bag itself. It has top, side and bottom carry handles on 3 sides making it easy to stow and remove it from overhead bins and car trunks. The front has a full front pocket with built-in ticket
pocket that allows easy access to travel documents, magazines, sweaters, or last minute items. I always like to keep things I will need to access quickly inside this outside pocket including my carry on baggie of liquids so I can easily grab it and put it in a bin at the security check point. It also has a convenient built-in waterproof pocket to keep your wet items like bathing suits, etc. separate from your dry clothes.
The main compartment is very roomy and expands 2″ for added space. It has adjustable hold down straps keep clothes in place as well as a zippered interior mesh pocket to store smaller items and accessories. Travelers of all sizes can easily adjust the telescoping extension handle that has two stops at 38″ and 41″ providing a comfortable roll for users with differing heights. And of course my favorite feature is the 360-degree 4-Wheel Spinners that make moving through the airport and plane effortless. They glide smoothly in every direction and make traveling so much easier. Normally when I get on a plane I a struggle trying to get my suitcase through the narrow aisle while also carrying my laptop bag. With the Atlantic Ultra Lite 2 21” Spinner Suitcase on my last flight I was able to glide my carry on suitcase easily through the aisle without ending up a sweaty, exhausted mess by the time I reached my seat. What a difference! I plan on getting a full size suitcase to match now. I never want to use a suitcase without 360 degree spinner wheels again!
