It looks like the Samsonite Aspire Xlite suitcases found an answer to the question of picking the right luggage for travel, since the ideal suitcase would be lightweight but durable, not too big but with ample storage.
According to Samsonite, the “rugged polyester and steel wire construction create a unique combination of strength, flexibility and capacity.”
Well, let’s take a closer look at the Samsonite Aspire Xlite Spinner 19 inch carry-on.
If you’re in a hurry and just want to know the most important features, check out the product below:
- Wetpak pocket
- 10-year warranty

Dimensions and Weight:
- 23.0 x 13.5 x 9.5 inches

The Samsonite Aspire Xlite has a very simple softside design, subdued compared to their hardside products for example.
That doesn’t mean it looks ugly of course, sporting a clean but high-quality fabric look thanks to its 680D Polyester construction.
The Aspire Xlite comes with 4 spinners wheels, a push-button main handle and padded top and side carry handles for extra comfort when you need to lift the case.
Size and Weight
The Aspire Xlite has a very standard size and weight for a softside carry-on.
Body dimensions are 20.5 x13.5 x 8.5 inches. Overall dimensions are 23.0 x 13.5 x 9.5 inches.
It should have no issues with US airline carry-on size limits, yet some users complained this wasn’t the case.
Additionally, if you are planning on going international, you may have to double-check the airline you are using since non-US airlines usually have stricter restrictions on size.
The weight of the empty carry-on is 7.5 pounds.
Storage and Capacity
The SAMSONITE Aspire xLite Softside 2-Piece Luggage Set has all of the standard features you might expect from a suitcase, with two zippered front pockets for your smaller, quick-access items, and the main interior compartment with a zippered section.
One neat added feature is the included “WetPak” pocket for those last-minute swim sessions, or if the rain caught your clothes by surprise.
The case also comes with cross straps to keep your clothes in place and tidied during travel.
The case is expandable for extra storage.
The Samsonite Aspire xLite comes with the manufacturer’s standard 10-year warranty, which is really good compared to the usual 5 years.
It also shows Samsonite’s confidence in their product so it should give you peace of mind regarding its durability.
Overall, the SAMSONITE Aspire xLite Softside 2-Piece Luggage Set is a great value for the price, given how well-organized its interior is and the small touches like the padded carry handles and the wetpak pocket.
