Welcome to the review of the Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 28 Spinner

Quick Take

Encase your belongings in a Polycarbonate hardcase and secure them with a built-in TSA combination lock. You've packed a big bag but feel it glide easily on four spinner wheels. Inside, you've got two two separate compartments and two mesh pockets to keep you organized. Aside from functionality, the Winfield 2 also offers sleek and modern good looks.





The Hardcase

The Winfield 2 is made of 100% Polycarbonate. The other popular material for hardcases is ABS which is slightly inferior to Polycarbonate. The choice of material reflects the premium bent of this suitcase.

It seems like a potential fingerprint magnet and that glossy finish gives rise to concerns about scratching.

To address this issues let's take a closer look at the material. It's easier to see the detail with another color, so here we're using the Charcoal color Winfield 2 Suitcase.

As you can see, the material has a brushed texture that will not be a fingerprint magnet and Samsonite has created this hardcase to be particularly resistant to scratches. Also you'll notice the ribbing design in front of the suitcase; this will help prevent scratching by providing a kind of buffer.


Mobility

I initially looked at the wheels of this bag and thought they were a tad too small. But now I realize that the wheels aren't really small, it's that the bag is really big. 28 inches is a very sizable suitcase.

The spinner wheels are very highly regarded for their smooth glide so I'm inclined to put any size concerns aside.

As for the telescoping handles, there aren't any comments about it. More importantly, no negative comments. They will be there, reliably, trip after trip.

There might be times when you will want to hand carry this suitcase or set it down on it's side. Typically this would be when the suitcase is on standby for the next leg of your trip or when it's in storage. So for this you have, first, the side handle.

Then, on the opposite side of the suitcase, paired with the handle, are molded footers to keep the Polycarbonate off the ground when you set the bag on its side.

Security

You get an integrated TSA lock.

The lock works by securing the suitcase zippers and it is a combination lock. There is a keyhole for the TSA.

Let's open up this bag.


Interior, Packing Space and Organizers

So this is a very straightforward suitcase that gives you what you need the most: lots of space. Let's look closer at the section highlighted by the yellow rectangle in the image above.

This is a double mesh pocket attached to the fabric divider.

Now to the other compartment and a closer look at the compression straps.

Now let's go back to this section of the suitcase.


second compartment of the Samsonite Winfield 2 Suitcase

This fabric divider secures the second section of this suitcase. The fact that you essentially have two compartments in the Winfield 2 opens up a number of organizing possibilities. For example, you can use the second compartment as a hamper, or a place to transport your shopping spree haul, or another thing you can think of.

If this already huge bag isn't enough spacewise, you can use the zipper shown below to further expand the Winfield 2.

Comparing The Samsonite Winfield 2 (28 inches)


The Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 28 Spinner vs. the American Tourister Ilite Xtreme Spinner 29


Samsonite Winfield 2 Suitcase

VS

The American Tourister Ilite Xtreme gives you one big packing space instead of the divided space of the Winfield 2. The Ilite also gives you the added convenience of external pockets in a softsided case.

When comparing these two, the advantage of the Winfield remains would be the protectiveness of the Polycarbonate case weighed against a softsided suitcase. Consider too the built in security feature of the Winfield 2.


The Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 28 Spinner vs. the Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds 28" 4 Wheel Upright

Samsonite Winfield 2 Suitcase
VS

The Kenneth Cole Reaction Out of Bounds Suitcase approximates the Samsonite Winfield 2. It is a 28-inch hardcase like the Winfield 2. It gives you a split compartmend with a fabric divider like the Winfield 2. It has a telescoping handle and four spinners also like the Winfield 2.

I say approximates because the Winfield 2's hardcase is made of Polycarbonate rather than the ABS hardshell of the Out of Bounds. The Samsonite also has an integrated lock while the Kenneth Cole Reaction does not.


The Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 28 Spinner vs. the Nautica Ahoy 28 Inch Hardside Spinner

Samsonite Winfield 2 Suitcase
VS

Based on looks alone the Nautica Ahoy can go head-to-head with the Samsonite Winfield 2. In my opinion the Nautica even has a slight edge. Storage and mobility features are also a match.

Alas, the Nautica is made of inferior ABS and doesn't have the Samsonite's integrated TSA lock.
