The SAMSONITE Victory 2 Piece Nested Softside Set is promoted as the luggage that “redefines the physics of luggage maneuverability to create the most effortless rolling bags on the market.”
Samsonite is arguably one of the most recognizable luggage brands in the world, garnering a reputation for providing quality suitcases for decades now.
Let’s take a closer look and see if their claims hold up this time.
If you’re in a hurry and just want to know the most important features, check out the product below:
- Expandable suitcases
- ample room
- certain colors often out of stock
Dimensions and Weight:
- 21 x 14.25 x 8.5 inches / 29 x 19.5 x 10 inches
- 7.12 lbs / 10.13 lbs
Representing a more casual, subdued style, this soft side luggage set currently only comes in black and has a very simple, almost generic design.
That is not to say it looks ugly by any means, the overall look and feel of the case is high quality and will work great in both casual and professional settings.
The Samsonite Victory comes with 4 spinner wheels that look to be sturdy and long-lasting, also making this set easy to maneuver over most surfaces.
The Victory also has a nicely built retractable, contoured handle to easily set the right height and grip to your preferences.
Size and Weight
The Samsonite Victory carry-on spinner measures 21 x 14.25 x 8.5 inches with the option to expand storage by an inch. Though if you opt to expand, you might run the risk of overstepping the carry-on size limits.
The large spinner suitcase is 29 x 19.5 x 10 inches, which can also be expanded by about an inch for a little more storage space.
The carry-on weighs in at around 7.12 lbs, which isn’t bad but it’s not the lightest ever.
The larger suitcase weighs in at 10.13 lbs.
Overall the Samsonite Victory set can be considered a lightweight set, albeit definitely not the lightest ever.
Storage and Capacity
The Victory set presents standard exterior and interior pocket designs:
Both cases come with two outer pockets for quick access and they have an ID tag at the back.
Inside, the suitcases are divided into the main compartment with cross straps, and a simple zippered mesh pocket for smaller items, documents, accessories and so on.
As reported by most users, it’s nothing revolutionary but it gets the job done well.
The Samsonite Victory comes with a 10-year warranty, which is more than what most manufacturers offer.
A few users expressed concerns over the comparatively cheaper-feeling build quality of the suitcases compared to other Samsonite products, but this 10-year warranty should provide peace of mind.
Overall, the SAMSONITE Victory 2 Piece Nested Softside Set is a decent option if you just want a carry-on and a large suitcase for travel.
It’s definitely not the best product Samsonite has ever created, but it provides enough storage to satisfy most of your travel needs.
It also seems to be less popular than Samsonite’s other similar sets, like the Aspire XLite:
- Four multi-directional spinner wheels for easy mobility. Rolls upright so there is no weight on your arm or shoulder
- Fully featured interior includes wetpak and mesh pockets for increased organization
- Padded top and side carry handles provide comfort when lifting a fully packed case
- Body Dimensions: 19.0 x 13.5 x 8 inches. Overall Dimensions: 22.0 x 13.5 x 9.5 inches. Weight: 7.5 pounds
Finally, the added 10-year warranty ensures that Samsonite stands by this product despite some people’s concerns over how long it might last.
