A Review for American Tourister's Colora Line of Luggage ~ We Will Definitely #PackMoreFun for Disney Now! #SP
I am so excited to have found my new favorite piece of luggage! It is my lime green American Tourister bag from the Colora line. This line of luggage will make anyone smile while packing, due to its bright cheerful colors. As soon as my children saw it, they immediately thought it looked like the Toy Story Aliens, which led to a fun conversation about several characters who "match" our new suitcase. Anytime we can find a little Disney in our day, it is a good day. So, we could not be more excited that American Tourister is now the official luggage of Walt Disney World and Disneyland! These are two companies we love and trust!
The actual bag that I own is the American Tourister Colora 20" Spinner in lime green. The reason it is called a spinner is because of the dual spinner wheels, which means they rotate 360 degrees and make maneuvering through a busy airport (or my children's obstacle course of toys they set up for us to test out how easily it glides around things) a breeze! With three little ones in tow, this is a wonderful feature to make our travel experience much easier.
The look of the inside is also deceiving! As I started to pack our bag, I realized it could hold much more than I thought! I asked the girls to pack the bag as if we were headed to Walt Disney World. Let's just say, four princess dresses, four princess purses, three tiaras, two pairs of princess shoes and a pair of Minnie ears did not even com close to filling this suitcase! But no worries, my girls were able to add in four more princess outfits (dresses, shows, jewelry and all) and there was still room to spare. Easily an adult could pack for a 3-4 day trip with this one piece of luggage.
I love that there are straps to keep my folded clothes in place. Knowing that for the most part they won't be shifting around the entire flight puts me at ease knowing I will not have to do any ironing while on vacation! Even better, the interior also has two zippered compartments for all the small things that the straps would not necessarily be able to hold into place. Having these separate compartments also makes it easy to find things if you haven't unpacked yet! Another great feature is the plastic toiletry bag. Being someone who has actually had a shampoo bottle leak into her luggage, this plastic toiletry bag is a wonderful feature to keep anything that could spill from making a mess of my packed clothes. Even better, it snaps into the bag, so it is easy to remove when you need it and then snap it back into place.
Having owned an American Tourister bag before, I can tell you they hold up against the tribulations of their travel time from leaving our hands until we reclaim them at baggage claim. They are well built and sturdy! Even better, this bag is the perfect size to carry on board if you so choose. With the dimensions being 20" x 14.5' x 8.5", it fits perfectly in the overhead compartment (though always check ahead of time with your airline to be sure!). My favorite part about the new line of Colora bags ... the colors! How bright and cheerful, but even better, these will be the easiest bags to spot at baggage claim!
