Sometimes, you reinvent the wheel. Sometimes, you slap it onto an upright bag, trademark the whole thing, and establish the beginnings of a massively popular global luggage brand. That was exactly what happened to former Northwest Airlines 747 pilot Bob Plath, when he invented the Rollaboard®—one of the world’s first commercially successful piece of rolling luggage—which became all the rage during the late 1980s.
Plath first sold his Rollaboard® suitcases to his fellow crew members. When travelers caught sight of flight attendants striding through airports with their smoothly rolling suitcases in tow, a new market was born; and the foundation of what was to become the highly successful Travelpro® brand was set. Today, the company follows in the example set by Plath, by providing travelers with innovative, high-quality products that not only meet, but often exceed, their ever-changing needs and expectations.
About the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite 3 Expandable Spinner
One of the Travelpro® brand’s most in-demand product series is the Maxlite® 3 collection. Consisting of 12 luggage pieces, the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite 3 Expandable Spinner is about as classy and sophisticated as they come. Included in the set is a spacious, but surprisingly light, 25-Inch Spinner. It is available in Black or Ocean Blue, and matches up nicely with any other luggage pieces that you already own.
The 25-Inch Spinner from the Maxlite® 3 collection is made from 100% durable and tear-resistant polyester, which is a lightweight fabric that doesn’t stain easily, and repels a fairly decent amount of rain and moisture. Being one of the Maxlite® 3 collection’s bigger pieces, the 25-Inch Spinner provides enough room for you to pack a week or two’s worth of clothes for extended vacations, or pack just enough for two people.
Travelpro® equipped the 25-Inch Spinner, as well as the other softside spinners in the Maxlite® 3 collection, with four recessed spinner wheels that pivot independently in a 360-degree motion. This gives the 25-Inch Spinner superior maneuverability over floors and other flat surfaces, whether you choose to pull it along on two wheels like an inclined fixed wheel, or push it forward as the bag rolls along on all fours beside you.
Ingenious Design, Stylish Practicality
Moving the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite 3 Expandable Spinner is also made easier by a set of handles. The bag has convenient top, side, and bottom handles that make lifting it a cinch, whether you’re loading it into the backseat of a cab, or hoisting it off the baggage carousel or airport conveyor belt. It also has a retractable multistage handle, which is fitted with the Travelpro® brand’s patent-pending Contour Grip. The technology features rubberized touch points that have been specifically engineered to make handling the 25-Inch Spinner a more comfortable experience.
The multistage, wiggle-proof handle is made from aircraft-grade aluminum, which is not only lightweight, but is also durable enough to withstand the rigors of frequent travel. It locks in two different positions to ensure a comfortable roll for users of any height, which is a crucial feature for a luggage piece this big.
The 25-Inch Spinner opens up to two cavernous compartments. One side has a zippered mesh panel that you can use to hold folded shirts, or items that you want to keep separate from the rest of your belongings. The other, much larger side is fully lined, and comes with tie-down compression straps that hold everything together during transit. There is also a zippered pocket in the middle for jewelry or other small items.
As big and spacious as the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite 3 Expandable Spinner already is, it can still make room for souvenirs and other travel keepsakes thanks to its expandable design. If you pull the zipper that runs around the exterior of the bag, you get an additional 1½ to 2 inches of extra packing space. This feature is particularly handy if you expect to return with more than what you left with. It also comes with corner guards and other protective features.
