Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable Review

My old bag had a big mishap at the airport and I was looking for a replacement suitcase. I wanted something quickly as I had the next trip coming up in a week. I just got the Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable suitcase based on its specifications. I was not able to read the complete reviews of the suitcase. I am glad I made a good choice even when I was in a hurry.

Maybe I was very lucky with choosing this lovely bag. I am a very happy person to have used this bag on multiple trips so far. It cannot get better than this!

Samsonite was the only reason I chose to get this bag on a short notice. I did not have the time to analyse or read the reviews on many websites before deciding to get a bag. I had no time and I had a lot of things coming up.

I ordered on Amazon as I love their unfailing service. I just have to order and forget about it. No calls to remind or to ask when I would get the bag. Absolutely love the convenient buying online option when you are short for a time. Great value.

Samsonite is one of our families Favourite Brands. We had one that lasted for a decade. True to the brand’s reputation, this Samsonite LIFT seems sturdy and well-built.


I got the suitcase in just two days and when it arrived, I genuinely felt that they had missed packing the suitcase. It was so light.

Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable bag is a pleasure to carry around on tightly packed trips. I feel it is super light to haul around with ease. It is a breeze to take it with me on any trip. I have been on 5 trips with this bag so far and I really enjoyed taking a lot more things on every trip.

Absolutely love the lightweight of the suitcase. Insanely lightweight bag for any heavy-set packer. Love it!


I have had the Samsonite LIFT 29 inch spinner on many trips, including one in Korea. I took a week’s worth baggage and a little more. I travelled alone and it worked great for me.

As long as you realise it is a 29-inch Suitcase, you are good to use it. It is spacious and holds a lot. Some people may find it annoying to pack more than they expect to. I wonder why. If you have a smaller bag, you would pack lesser.

If you get a 29-inch bag, it is naturally big. Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable is best to get a big bag only if you want to! If you ever want something smaller for a weekend, get a smaller sized bag.


I love the durability in all the Samsonite bags. The LIFT 29-inch bag is very durable and seems to last for years to come. The bag scores well in both functionality and looks.

The durability makes it better than Any Other Luggage of its size and price range. My only concern is the wheels. They are smaller than I expected it. The old Samsonite bag I had had wheels of the size of a Cosco tennis ball.

This LIFT series had wheels just the size of a ping-pong ball. I did not expect that. It is quite difficult to take it over spaced out gravel. Do not try it if you do not want to get stuck in some random stone path.


This is the best part of the Samsonite LIFT 29″ to me. I always get any bag with an intention to use it for a long time. I am planning to use this at least for 5 years.

I love the fact that it does not show any wear and tear at all. I have taken it to Venice, Korea, London and Hong Kong and Philadelphia and it looks brand new. In fact, it looks as good as the day I got it from Amazon at my door. I have travelled more than 20,000 miles with it now.

I am very proud to say that nobody will spot a single blemish or scratch on it. I took them on hard paths, airline cargo treatments, stairs in Venice yet they look new and it is a good news for me. Love the design.

Flat-Handle Design

I loved the handle. It makes it very easy to move around. Nowadays the handles in most bags are wobbly and weak. They seem to break easily too.

When we were at the airport, a couple who travelled with us had a broken handle in their 28-inch sized suitcase. It was a pain to see them move around with so much difficulty. I wish they had a Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable like me. The suitcase also has integrated top and side pull handles to help you lift them on stairs.

I was in Venice for a week and there were a lot of stairs around the city. I had to thump the bag on the stairs as I semi-carried it along. I was very worried if they would last and thankfully nothing happened to the suitcase. Looks as good as new.


  • Very durable bag.
  • Neat looking and comes scratch-free.
  • Great handles.
  • Very easy to move around.
  • Awesome bag with a very spacious interior.
  • Lightweight.
  • You can pack a lot more.
  • Moves easily even when it is fully packed.


  • The purple colour looks more blue than purple. Anyway, it doesn’t really matter as I am always able to spot it on the carousel.

Final Verdict

My Samsonite LIFT 29″ Spinner Expandable Review is completely based on the experience with the bag. I was able to read the other reviews only after my first trip and the other reviews on Amazon seem impressive too. It has 4.7 stars out of 5 on Amazon and I think a lot of users have felt similar about the bag.

I am very happy for getting it on Amazon. A hassle free shopping experience with the bag delivered to your doorstep. Extremely convenient. I was in short of time and felt great for being able to order it online and lay back to relax. Buy them to understand what I mean!
