I like to think over the years I have come along way with packing, in my younger years, I used to be the person that would pack ten outfits for every occasion, but over the past few years, I like to think I have the art of packing down. On my last trip to South Africa, I did, however, have quite the extensive packing list and did not feel like my usual backpack would be the most convenient, so I opted for my new American Tourister Bon Air Spinner in lilac, to match my blog, obviously.
American Tourister Bon Air Review
The super lightweight case comes with multiple compartments including a very handy centre divide – meaning I even ditched my faithful packing cubes on this occasion. The compartments made it so much easier to divide my ‘working clothes’ and evening wear and came in especially handy when transporting my dirty muddy boots on the way home.
Key Features of the American Tourister Bon Air:
- Four wheels
- 57.5L capacity
- Size: 66 x 46 x 25.5
- Lightweight – 3.4kg
- Available is 10 bright colours – essential for ensuring your case stands out on a luggage belt
- TSA approved code lock
- Strong and sturdy polypropylene
As standard with most cases now the Bon Air Spinner by American Tourister comes with four wheels, making it a dream to run with between terminals at Johannesburg airport after our flight was delayed! And while I do not feel confident commenting on the strength of the case yet as I have only taken it on one trip, it has withstood four flights and being transported in and out of various vans when driving between reserves without a scratch, so I am quietly confident.
2018 update: I now feel even more confident in my American Tourister Bon Air review. Having taken the case on over 5 trips across the space of this year, I have found the case to be strong and stable, coping well with both long and short haul flights.
The American Tourister Bon Air is currently available for £89 on Amazon with Amazon Prime next day delivery.
Other features include a built in TSA code-lock, which means if you are travelling to the USA your case if needed, it can be opened by security without being damaged. Admittedly I am one of those people that never lock their case, but with the in built padlock, I have no excuse, not to now.
With regards to usage, I would suggest the Bon Air Spinner is practical and spacious enough for a weeks travel for one person. At 66 x 46 x 25.5, you will find this hold luggage suitable for a beach holiday or extended city break. The fact the case opens from the middle, giving you two complete sides, allows you to maximise the space. The two sections are separated by zipped dividers, ensuring your contents can stay organised and in place during transit.
Overall, I was impressed with the American Tourister Bon Air, for someone who travels frequently I definitely think it is worth investing in a decent strong case, and although I still will be taking my trusty backpack on my travels around India in October, for my city break to Budapest next month, this bright fun coloured case will be accompanying me all the way.
If you are looking for a practical cabin case, I personally recommend the Travel Hack Pro Cabin Case by Cabin Max. A practical and spacious cabin bag with in-built handbag compartment.
