Athalon Luggage 21 Inch Hybrid Travelers Bag Review
I know how hard it is finding a good Hybrid Travelers. It’s equally daunting finding a helpful Hybrid Travelers review. Certainly, there are hundreds of “good” Bags out there. Some are better than others for this or that reason. I wouldn’t say the Athalon Luggage 21 Inch Hybrid Travelers Bag is the best. But, it’s quite a good Bag for its looks and size.
Mostly, for its quality features and high performance. The weight of this Bag is perfect. It gives you the feeling you are handling a quality appliance. One that will last in the family for the long haul.
Features of the Athalon Luggage 21 Inch Hybrid Travelers Bag
The following are some of the common features that you must know:
Accurate temperature settings
With 1700 watt of power, the Athalon produces accurate and consistent temperature that removes every tough wrinkle. The Bag heats up in minutes and immediately becomes ready for use. Heat is evenly spread across the soleplate surface for excellent Bag performance.
It’s amazing how this Bag gets the job done in half the time. Other Bags don’t hit up as fast. And, the heat is not well distributed across the soleplate. It has a thick central aluminum core to ensure even spread of temperature as well as to eliminate hot spots. A single pass offers the desirable crease. Unlike with other Bags that require several passes to achieve any meaningful results.
I like how easy it is reaching through buttons, seams and hard-to-reach areas. The Bag doesn’t leave anything out. It ensures crisp results. A precision shot tip accesses the hard-to-reach zones like collars, seams, pockets and between buttons.
Superior Steam Function
It’s no secret that a Hybrid Travelers produces better Bag results than a regular bag. The steam enhances wrinkle removal performance and ensures long lasting creases. To get good steam performance, your Hybrid Travelers should offer at least 300 steam holes on the soleplate. However, the more steam the easier it is to Bag.
The Microsteam soleplate on this Bag offers 400 holes. This guarantees optimal steam diffusion. Its unique steam distribution across the soleplate ensures better steam penetration for efficient Bag. The Bag offers different kinds of steam functions: variable steam, burst of steam, vertical steam and cool mist spray.
Variable steam offers great flexibility. It’s ideal for Bag a variety of fabrics. Also, it lets you adjust spray according to the thickness of different layers, such as seams and waistbands. The burst of steam option offers a long-lasting powerful burst (150g/min) of steam to wrestle down stubborn wrinkles. Vertical steam is ideal for doing touch-ups on hanging garments. The cool mist spray option offers greater flexibility and adjusts to your Bag needs.
Highly Polished Soleplate
An Bag with a well-polished soleplate is easy to use. There is less friction between soleplate and fabric. This means that you’ll use less effort in Bag. In the long run, you don’t feel beat after a long session of Bag.
The Bag simply glides over the fabric with much ease. With every pass, wrinkles get straightened out. You don’t have to press down the Bag to have the tough wrinkles out. The performance is simply amazing.
Extra-large Water Tank
To get effective consistent steam action every time you are Bag, the Athalon offers a large 12.7 oz. water tank. While this will not produce enough steam to last through several heaps of clothes, you get the best steam action.
What’s more, the Bag is designed to allow use of regular untreated tap water for great convenience. This unfiltered tap water easily transforms into plentiful steam for excellent Bag performance.
Easy Maintenance System
Who wants a system that serves well today and gets broken the next? Certainly, an Bag’s durability should be considered alongside its quality and performance. This Athalon Bag fascinates me for its self-maintenance features. It really makes maintaining the unit a breeze.
The Bag comes with 3 mechanisms for self-maintenance; self-cleaning, anti-calcium system and Anti-drip ability. Anti-drip prevents water from dripping out. You will not experience any leaking or spitting.
The self-cleaning feature works perfectly. It lets out a powerful blast of steam and water to flush away any impurities in the water. A calc-away valve collects all calcium and prevents build-up of scale.
