GoPenguin Luggage. A fair priced option.f

Before the Holiday season I realized I needed a new spinner carry-on bag. I had tried the Away Spinner Checked bag but while it was a quality bag I didn't see it worth the cost at the time and wanted a checked bag with a clamp closure vs a zipper for checked baggage. I checked out some bags in store, looked online and asked some people where I came across the GoPenguin line. It had great reviews online and was in the price I felt I could ask for from a family member and not be greedy.

I received the 22" hardside spinner in Navy and am rather impressed. The case is light but sturdy and the few scuffs from use cleared up with a damn clothe. Inside there are two compartments with one zipping closed and the other has an adjustable section to contain items. I was able to pack 4 days of regular clothing, 2 days of work clothing, toiletries and a pair of dress shoes without issue. The bag rolls well on hard surfaces and carpeted while handling bumpy surfaces decently well too. It has help up well during 3 trips with 3 segments being checked and 3 being in an overhead. The lifetime warranty is reassuring.

Here's a link to the GoPenguin site for the 22-inch spinner: https://www.gopenguin.com/products/g...midnight-black. It certainly looks like a reasonably-priced option with good reviews. I don't have one but will be interested in any short-term or long-term thoughts you have after you've had a chance to use this.

I recently received the weekender bag to go along with my carry-on spinner (not a gopenguin). It seems to be well-built so far. It's a bit small, definitely a more of an everyday vs a weekender bag but that's a good thing for a carry-on.

I don't have any upcoming travel but I'll report back whenever I get a chance to test it.
