American Tourister Applite 3.0S Range

Joanna Hall

When you think about quality luggage without a heavy price tag, one of the first brands to spring to mind is American Tourister. It’s a brand which dates back to 1933, famous for designs which are stylish as well as functional, and with this new Applite Series luggage can also be fun to carry around. 

  • What Is It:  The latest luggage range from American Tourister.
  • Why Buy:  It’s American Tourister’s lightest ever luggage.
  • The Details:  Available from David Jones, Strandbags and other luggage retailers. Applite 3.0S comes in four sizes including a 50cm Upright rrp $199, a 55cm Spinner rrp $219, a 71cm Spinner rrp $279, and an 82cm Spinner rrp $299.  

Road Test

The Applite 3.0S is an upgrade of American Tourister’s best selling collection, with new key features including an ultra-lightweight design, and a choice of bold colours; Bodega Blue, Lightening Grey and Black and Black/Green. We were given a 71cm Spinner to review (we’re also giving one away in a new competition - see below for details) and were impressed from the start. The case looks great - our review sample was Lightening Grey with yellow trim - made from a sturdy polyester material which you can wipe clean with a damp cloth. It also has three primary compartments making it easy for you to organise your possessions on the go. There is a decent sized flat zipped sleeve on the front of the lid, which is ideal for documents or books, and a larger zipped pocket underneath for bulkier items. Inside the yellow-lined main compartment, which has a capacity of 73/82 litres, is a third zipped pocket on the underside of the lid, where you can store flat items or laundry, and there are adjustable straps to keep everything else in place. Other great features of this good looking case include four 360-degree multidirectional double spinner wheels, which are durable and make the case glide smoothly and with stability. It also has a premium recessed TSA combination lock, it expands for extra capacity, and empty it weighs just 2.6kg. Now what’s not to love about that? Loves 

  • The case is incredibly lightweight.
  • Australian Tourister products bought in Australia and New Zealand come with a 10 year warranty.

Insider Tips  

  • Jazz up your case and make it easier to identify on an airport carousel by adding a colourful luggage tag, scarf or ribbon. 
  • As ever, in case of loss, make sure your personal details are featured somewhere inside the case so you have a better chance of being reunited with your possessions.
