Luggage is one of those things most of us don’t think about. There are a lot of things in our lives that we don’t think about. We don’t spend much time, most of us, thinking about our toothbrushes. We don’t spend much time, most of us, thinking about the tires on our cars. We don’t spend much time, most of us, thinking about the quality of the water that we drink.
All of these things, however, are to varying degrees quite important. The health of our mouth, and so of our bodies, depends on our toothbrushes. Our getting to where we’re going safely depends on the quality of our tires. Our not being sick depends on the quality of our drinking water. We don’t spend much time thinking about these things, but they are important. And if we attend to them, we can make decisions that will positively impact our lives.
In one important way, our luggage is like our toothbrushes, our car tires, and our drinking water. It is something we don’t often think about, but it is important to our lives (at least when we are traveling). We may take for granted that our bags will hold all of the things we need to bring — until, that is, they don’t. We may take for granted that those bags will keep our valuable belongings safe — until, that is, they don’t. And we may not consider that our travels could be much easier, much smoother, and without so much physical strain if we had better, easier to use luggage.
It is worth thinking about our luggage. If you travel a lot, then it is a necessity that you think about the quality of your luggage. But even if you only travel sometimes, and not for very long, then it is helpful to think about the quality of the bags you are using. Finding better luggage can, simply put, make your life easier.
For a long time, luggage came in more or less two kinds: the kind of luggage with two wheels and the kind with no wheels. This meant that the consumer got to choose between having a mobile bag and one that they had to pick up. But the quality of the wheels on those mobile bags were not as good as that of the wheels on some contemporary bags.
Moreover, some companies started to make bags with more wheels, and with wheels that moved freely in every direction. This meant that even heavy bags could be moved more easily. This reduced back strain, leg pain, and hip problems, particularly in the aging. These four wheeled (or sometimes eight wheeled) bags are called spinner luggage. Spinner luggage represents a way of making things easier on the person who is traveling, and it is a great way to upgrade your existing bag.
If you are in the market for new luggage, then you owe it to yourself to consider spinner luggage. And if you are going to consider spinner luggage, then there is one brand above all you can look at: Samsonite. This is a review of the Samsonite Omni Hardside 3 Piece Luggage Set. As you will see, it is quite a set of luggage.
Features of Samsonite Omni PC Hardside 3 Piece Set
This offering is made by Samsonite, which may be the biggest name in luggage. That means that you get all of the quality of what might be the top-of-the-line luggage company in the world. You also know that you are using luggage that has been tested by many consumers and has been reviewed positively by hundreds or even thousands of happy consumers.
One of the best features of this set, and what sets it apart, is the construction of its hardside shell. First of all, it is worth saying something about hardside luggage. There are two kinds of spinner luggage: hard and soft. Soft luggage is generally a little lighter and it can be easier to stow, but it sacrifices a lot of your belongings’ safety. Hardside luggage has a hard exterior shell that allows the bag to more thoroughly protect what you put inside of it.
The challenge for manufacturers is to make this shell both as strong as possible and as light as possible. There are two materials they generally use to accomplish this: first, there is ABS, which is a light, inexpensive material. It is hard, but is prone at times to cracking under pressure. High-quality bags use PC (polycarbonate) material for their hardside shells. This material is still light, but is much stronger than ABS. It is also more expensive to manufacture. For that reason, only the highest end bags use PC. This Samsonite Omni set is 100 percent PC, which means that it will keep your things the safest it possibly can.
Another thing about this set that is worth pausing over is its use of high-quality wheels. The bags each have four wheels, and the wheels themselves have been re-engineered by Samsonite to be quieter and smoother than ever. These wheels mean less work from you to push and pull the bag around, which means that you can put an even heavier load into them and still not strain yourself.

The verdict here is simple: This Samsonite Omni PC Hardside 3 Piece Set is high quality. If you are in the market for a great set of spinner luggage, and if you want the best, then this may be for you. It is easy to find spinner luggage these days, but it can be hard to find spinner luggage that does its job as well as these pieces do. If you want the best, then you are pretty safe going with Samsonite, and this is a great offering by that company.
