Welcome to the review of the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 20" Carry On

Quick Take

For such a small suitcase the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds over delivers on the convenience features. You get four spinners and a telescoping handle for easy movement and then you get a thoughtful side handle and moldded footer combination for hand carrying. The suitcase protects your baggage with an ABS hardcase and inside, you get simple yet very useful organization in the form of an accessory pocket and two distinct packing spaces. It all adds up to a delightful hardcase carry-on.





Material


material of the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out Of Bounds Carry On Suitcase

The Out of Bounds Carry On is made of ABS.

There are two popular kinds of hardside luggage material: ABS and Polycarbonate. Both are tough materials with temperature and impact resisstance. Polycarbonate is slightly superior to ABS but ABS is more cost effective.

Another thing to note is that the dimensions of this carry-on add up to 41.1 inches which is well under 45, which is the rule-of-thumb limit for carry-ons of most airlines. So you can be assured that you'll be allowed to take this suitcase to the cabin with you.


Easy Mobility

Telescoping handles and four spinners give you the convenience you want.


The wheels of the Kenneth Cole Out Of Bounds Suitcase

The handles have two locking positions. The lower position is ideal for when you want to push your carry-on while it is in the upright position, utilizing all four spinner wheels. The second and longer locking position is for grabbing the telescoping handle, tilting the suitcase, and rolling it by using it's two back wheels.

Molded 'feet' that allow you to set the bag down on its side without risking scratches on the suitcase finish.


Let's open this suitcase and set it down flat to see what it has to offer on the inside.

Interior

First you get a traditional compartment for your clothes with compression straps to keep them in place.

Across from that is another compartment separated by a zippered divider.


second compartment of the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out Of Bounds Carry On Suitcase

The compartment with the compression straps (main compartment) is around five inches deep the compartment with the divider (secondary compartment) is four inches deep.

You can pack the main compartment with your clothes and keep the secondary compartment empty when leaving for your trip. On the way back, you can pack the secondary compartment with whatever goodies you've bought on the trip. This is one way you can use the Kenneth Cole Reaction Carry On.

There is one pocket on this bag and here it is.

Comparing The Kenneth Cole Out Of Bounds


The Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 20" Carry On vs. the Travelpro Crew 10 22 Inch Expandable Rollaboard Suiter

Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds Luggage
VS

With the Travelpro Crew 10 22 you get a softsided suitcase with external pockets. You also get one big packing space instead of a divided compartment.

Since the Travelpro Crew 10 22 doesn't have the KCR Out of Bounds' four spinners you won't be able to move tthe bag around while upright. The Out of Bounds also has more organization options on the inside.


The Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 20" Carry On vs. the Bluesmart One - Smart Luggage

Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds Luggage
VS

I think the Bluesmart is the first of a future wave of suitcases that will be wired into the latest technology. The Bluesmarrt weighs itself, locates itself and charges your mobile phone - just some of its tech features.

From a pure visual point-of-view the KCR Out of Bounds looks every bit as modern as the Bluesmart One but it is still refreshingly a traditional bag - meant to move you on rather than plug you in.


The Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 20" Carry On vs. the SwissGear Travel Gear 20" Expandable Spinner Suitcase

Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds Luggage
VS

What the SwissGear has to commend it is that it is virtually invisible besides the Out of Bounds. If you're on stealth mode consider this soft side carry-on. It might be low key but it also has everything you've come to expect from a modern suitcase.

On the other hand, you might not want to be on stealth mode. You don't want your luggage to shout - too much. If that's the case, then the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds is definitely for you. It looks just the way you want and, when you open it, it gives you everything you need for your short trip.
