Road Test

Hard shell carry on bags have enjoyed a resurgence in popularity in recent years. A primary one is that, thanks to the development of new materials, they are no longer so heavy when packed and they are no longer prone to damage so easily. Hard shell carry on bags also look great, as well as doing a better job in protecting your possessions from harm, or the elements. New to Crumpler’s hugely popular Vis-À-Vis luggage collection is a 55cm cabin bag with a matte finish, which we reviewed, and loved, for a variety of reasons. This stylish new bag has a strong, lightweight and durable outer shell, made from 100% polycarbonate, with enhancements including a reinforced, heavy duty zip, and in-built TSA approved for added security and peace of mind. It also features comfortable cushioned fabric handles with straps which wrap around the case; they come in a choice of four colours, making the suitcase comfortable to carry and easy to spot on the carousel should you decide the check the bag in. And when you are wheeling the Vis-À-Vis, its smooth glide wheels make it easy to roll from A to B. Open this gem of a case up and you’ll discover it’s easy to keep your possessions neat and secure in transit, thanks to an innovative clothes compression system (Patent Pending). And finally, the soft matte finish hides scratches commonly picked up during travel. Loves 

  • The built-in TSA lock gives you the option of checking the bag in safely.
  • The matte finish is something a bit different, hiding any scratches picked up in transit.
  • The bag pairs well with Crumpler laptop bags.

    Sturdy 5 Star Review

    BrieThePie is right.....but this case isn't just for taking onboard flights. I travel a lot and have something similar using trains, cars, ferries you name it. If you are exclusively flying and only have 7kg weight you are probabaly better off with a soft sided back, but for me this sort of bag wins hands down as my stuff is protected from damage and rain...especially my laptop!

    Built Like a Brick 2 Star Review

    This case weighs 4 kg - whenever I fly I am only allowed 7kg which leaves me 3 kg to pack WTF? Why is this so heavy and robust when you are always in charge of it, you carry it on! Sure pay a premium for something that only leaves enough leeway to carry your toothbrush and PJ's.....

    Sounds Good 4 Star Review

    Never heard of this brand but I guess they are mostly online only so that's why. The case looks really cool though would love to try it.
