If you’ve been on the hunt for good quality luggage, you most likely have come across several pieces that bear the iconic DELSEY logo on them. These products have a history of quality and innovation that goes as far back as 1946, when French businessman Émile Delahaye teamed up with entrepreneur brothers André and Walter Seynhaeve, combining their names to establish the premier luggage brand that you know today.
For more than half a century, the DELSEY brand has been a symbol of luggage excellence; coming out with outstanding products that satisfy the needs of travelers worldwide. And one of the brand’s more well-known product lines is the DELSEY Helium Shadow 2.0 Expandable Spinner Trolley series. Its 19-Inch International Carry-On has attracted quite a large following, and for good reason. It is considered to be one of the better expandable spinners available today.
The Ideal DELSEY Helium Shadow 2.0 Expandable Spinner Trolley for Travelers of All Types
The 19-Inch International Carry-On is part of the DELSEY brand’s Helium Shadow 2.0 collection. Similar to its 21-, 25-, and 29-Inch counterparts, the 19-Inch Carry-on features a lightweight and durable polycarbonate shell that is more than capable of standing up against the rigors of travel. It does a great job of keeping your things safe, while looking fabulous in the process. The carry-on case comes in black, purple, and platinum.
One noticeable feature that makes the 19-Inch DELSEY Helium Shadow 2.0 Expandable Spinner Trolley stand out is its large hardside front pocket. It is big enough to accommodate some last-minute packing, or you can use it to store passports, gadgets, or even a 15-inch laptop. It has a padded sleeve with two zippered mesh pockets that are great for keeping loose change, ID’s, or anything that you’ll want to have easy access to during your trip. The 19-Inch Spinner is a great carry-on especially if you prefer packing everything you need in one bag.
An Elegantly Efficient Carry-On Designed For Optimal Storage and Convenience
For something so small, the 19-Inch Carry-On quite literally packs in quite the heft. It tips the scale at a little over 7 pounds when empty, but inside the hardside shell is a cavernous interior that can hold a week’s worth of clothes, maybe more, especially if you do some laundry during your trip. The case opens up to two large sections; one is a zippered compartment that holds delicate items like folded shirts, while the other holds compression straps that keep everything together during transit. There’s also a small zippered pocket along the middle, where the two sides meet, which is great for storing jewelry, ties, and other small travel items.
Underneath the 19-Inch Carry-On is the DELSEY brand’s proprietary Easy-Roll™ spinner wheel system. It consists of four spinner wheels that rotate independently, giving you a smoother and more flawless roll over flat surfaces, in just about any direction. The hardside case also has a recessed telescopic handle that not only takes the weight off your arms, but also provide maximum comfort and control as you navigate through crowded airports or train stations. In the rare cases when you actually need to lift the carry-on spinner, like when you’re putting it in the car, or when you’re hoisting it up and in the overhead compartment, the DELSEY Helium Shadow 2.0 Expandable Spinner Trolley does have top and side handles with cushioned handgrips for your convenience.
More Storage, Tighter Security
If you find that the packing space provided by the 19-Inch Carry-On falls just short of what you need for your trip, but you don’t want to bother with taking a second bag, simply pull the zipper that goes all around the exterior of the bag to free up more room. The expansion feature gives the 19-Inch Carry-On an additional 1½ to 2 inches of extra packing space.
The hardside case also features a TSA-friendly combination lock that keeps your belongings secure during transit. Should the TSA need to open your luggage for inspection, the lock has a skeleton keyhole for the specific master key that only TSA agents and authorized personnel are allowed to use.
More Than Just A Good-Looking Hardside Spinner
DELSEY definitely got it right again with this one, folks. If you’re looking for a reliable luggage piece that has more to offer than just its good looks, give the DELSEY Helium Shadow 2.0 Expandable Spinner Trolley some serious consideration.
