Welcome to the review of the Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside 25 Inch Spinner

Quick Take

The name of this suitcase points to its core benefit: the superior mobility provided by its spinner wheels or Sphere wheels. The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 endeavors to pay extra attention to the details. Gel-filled handles for comfort, a uniquely designed tie-down strap and water-resistant nylon fabric are just some of the features provided. All these details add up to a bag that is more than the sum of its parts.




The basic components making up an acceptable suitcase is well known and every manufacturer mostly have these components in the suitcases they offer to the market

With the Silhouette Sphere 2, Samsonite attempts to get an edge by focusing on the details of these components. This suitcase is designed for the frequent traveler, with that in mind, let's take a look at what the Samsonite Sphere 2 brings to to the table . . .


Sphere Wheels

The Sphere 2 takes its name from its showcase feature: the four spinner wheels called sphere wheels.

Each sphere wheel is a mash up of two wheels that function independently from each other. One can roll forward while the other rolls back. The effect is easier movement of the suitcase over rough ground.

You can also see that the rubber molding that surrounds the wheels go all the way up to protect the edge of the suitcase.


Telescoping Handle


With the suitcase wheels rolling smoothly Samsonite focuses on the telecoping handle.

This handle gives you just that bit more comfort by being gel-filled.


Suitcase Material

The close up shot above focuses on the bag material. The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 is a soft-sided bag. The material is called Tri-core nylon with Sam Guard protection making it water resistant. Beyond that, the material looks very high end, very nice.

Now let's open this suitcase up.


A Look Inside

Once again Samsonite is going for an advantage by focusing on the details as can be seen in the unique tie-down straps.

I like it. The wider, beautifully designed straps aren't just visually unique from the common cross straps, they're also wonderfully broad giving the impression that they can hold things down that much better.

Now heres another zippered pocket in the side of the bag interior.

This is not the only one. Across from it is another zippered pocket, this time a mesh pocket. That is a total of four pockets in the inside of the bag.

On the outside you have two easy access exterior pockets

Comparing The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 (25 Inches)


The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside 25 Inch Spinner vs. the Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside 25 Inch Spinner

VS

The Delsey Helium Titanium is a hardside alternative to the softsided Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2.

Unlike the Samsonite, the Delsey divides its main compartment into two sizable spaces.

On the other hand, the Samsonite boasts more pockets.

Both suitcases have compound spinner wheels but the Delsey's wheels were designed to emphasize reliability while the Samsonite's wheels emphasize mobility.


The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside 25 Inch Spinner vs. the Skyway Luggage Epic 25 Inch 2 Wheel Expandable Upright

VS

The Skyway Epic is a simpler suitcase than the Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2. Two pockets on the outside and one big pocket on the inside lid. You also get more traditional tie-down straps.

The biggest difference is that the Skyway has two wheels to the Samsonite's four.


The Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2 Softside 25 Inch Spinner vs. the Atlantic Luggage Ultra Lite 3 25 Inch Expandable Spinner

VS

The Atlantic Ultra Lite 3 has four spinners just like the Samsonite Silhouette Sphere 2, but these are straightforward single wheels instead of the Samsonite's clever compound wheels.

The rest of the Ultra Lite 3 is also a bit simpler. Three mesh pockets on the inside and two pockets on the outside.

Just like the Samsonite, the Atlantic's material is treated to be water-repellent.
