Storage

Let's look at this bag from the inside out. First stop, the big packing space.


American  Tourister Ilite Xtreme interior

Look at how much space you get. Packing straps are there to hold things down.

This packing space has some nice features. Let's take a look . . .

First, this area:


American  Tourister Ilite Xtreme inside transparent pocket

This is a big zipped pocket. The best thing about it is that it is transparent, just one look at this pocket will tell you what you've brought, and what you've forgotten.

Next:

A simple, open sleeve.

On top of the sleeve is a zipped pocket that gives you access to a deep space.

Convenience

Now lets close the lid and zip it up and take a look at the outside of the bag. We're zooming in on the upper front part of this luggage.

This zipper gives you a deep quick access pocket.

On top of that is a shallower pocket.

Then we come to this zipper.


American  Tourister Ilite Xtreme expansion

This is not a pocket at all. You unzip this to expand the suitcase and get more packing space.

Easy Handling

A system of wheels and handles make this big suitcase easy to use. Let's start from the bottom.


American  Tourister Ilite Xtreme wheels

Four spinner wheels mean effortless upright movement.

Also shown are handles at the bottom of the bag.

You've got the top handles and here are the side handles. It's a good thing that they're flush to the bag body. That makes them harder to damage during baggage handling.

Telescoping grab handles, together with the spinner wheels, complete the mobility package of this bag.





Comparing The American Tourister Ilite Xtreme 29


The American Tourister Ilite Xtreme Spinner 29 vs. the Travelpro Luggage Maxlite3 29 Inch Expandable Spinner, Blue, One Size

VS

As you can tell by their names, both the Ilite and the Maxlite 3 put a premium on being lightweight, which makes a lot of sense for 29-inch suitcases.

Both the American Tourister Ilite Xtreme and the TravelPro Maxlite 3 nearly give you the same things feature for feature.

Nearly.

The Ilite Xtreme gives you more pockets and allows you to be more flexible in your packing. The Maxlite 3 is more protective of those four spinner wheels which is more assuring if you're particularly concerned about mobility.


The American Tourister Ilite Xtreme Spinner 29 vs. the Delsey Luggage Chatillon 29 Inch Expandable Trolley

VS

One way to look at the Delsey Chatillon is to consider it as a more formal version of the American Tourister Ilite Xtreme. For example, the suitcase lid of the Chatillon has a special space for a suit.

Like the Ilite Xtreme, the Chatillon has four spinner wheels and is expandable.

The Ilite Xtreme has more pockets while the Chatillon has a built in overweight indicator and the fabric is treated to become water repellent.


The American Tourister Ilite Xtreme Spinner 29 vs. the Heritage 29 Inch ABS 4-Wheel Upright

VS

The Heritage gives you the hardcase option to the Ilite Xtreme's softside while providing the same space. A hardcase is the better option if you have fragile items to transport.

Unlike the American Tourister Ilite Xtreme, the Heritage isn't expandable.

Because of the way it's designed the Heritage's space is divided into two compartments unlike the single huge space of the Ilite Xtreme.
