Does size and suspension really matter? If you are one to fly in for the New York, London, Milan, and Paris Fashion Weeks, you won’t exactly be travelling light — filling your suitcase with glamorous designer dresses and a slew of shoes. And while many may envy the new buys packed away in your suitcase when you return post-Fashion Week, it’s the luggage itself that would steal the initial show — for better or for worse. So if you’re looking for form and function that’s sleek and smooth to accompany you on your travels, the new Samsonite Evoa may just fit the bill.
There are four colours available, all with a brushed finish for added texture: Silver, Black, Rose Gold and Ice Blue — which are very versatile.
Each colour gives off a sleek metallic aesthetic too, though the case itself isn’t made of metal.
Instead, the hard exterior is fashioned out of thermo-formed polycarbonate while its four corners do have aluminium guardrails to protect during in-route handling.
As for size, the Samsonite Evoa comes in five specifications, including a cabin-friendly spinner rolling tote with plenty of smart compartments and pockets for easy access to your laptop and toiletries during those pesky security checks. But for the sake of shopping or extended business trips, opt for the bountiful 75cm-tall spinner. It can hold up to a whopping 25kg load of stuff. The structural feature that handles the handle mechanism of this bag is also one that helps maximise volume capacity, as it doesn’t encroach upon the interior, unlike most luggages out there.
But perhaps the most prominent pull of owning a Samsonite Evoa is that it comes mounted with the new and innovative Aero-Trac suspension wheel system, which significantly reduces rolling vibration and noise. This means less hubbub while lugging your haul around. It’s manoeuvrable, smooth and silent, especially when on all four pairs of wheels.
