Found 30th May 2016
I just purchased this suitcase in medium for £29.00 (RRP £75) and large for £34.99 (RRP £85).

Very nice cases made by Samsonite. Excellent price, cheapest I could find by a large gap.

"American Tourister" written on your bag might not be a great idea whilst travelling to certain parts....

Probably why they're so cheap 8-)
don't buy is so rubbish I have one
Brilliant find op. I have this bag (small I'm guessing) and paid about double for it from Amazon a year or so ago. Use it for work trips and is so useful as carry on luggage with the no frills airlines. Well made and still feel the assurance it's like new despite dozens of trips unlike other bags I've had in the past by other brands. Definitely one to buy at this price.
Is it worth it? I need a suitcase for hol in August

Hmm medium 3.4kg, I'd expect it under the 3kg mark...

Flybe overhead storage is too small to accommodate these easily.
Good value case I have this in black. Perfect for a week summer holiday. Too small for say two weeks long haul, but a week in Spain. Perfect !
Good price. Large OOS.
are they bullet proof

Is that the same as saying the Volkswagen group have marques from Bugatti Lamborghini through to Skoda but they are
not the same?

Thanks for clarification. I thought it was made by same company.

Thanks!
I just brought the small for cabin baggage and now have found out that the width/height of this is 40cm, 5cm over the airlines 35cm allowance that I'm flying with in a couple of weeks. Has anyone had any trouble at the gates with this kind of difference? I'm sure it'll fit into the bag sizer sideways.

​Thanks I'm flying with KLM, not sure whether to risk it
I travel a lot, but would never buy this. I only use Samsonite which have lasted well on many trips over the years.

says made by samsonite though

says made by samsonite though



Where? It says 'American Tourister by Samsonite' , does not mean they are made by them, just that they own them. Classic case (boom-boom) of hoping a great reputation rubs off on a lower-quality product.

Never heard of a problem as you implied, it is more risk with Burberry, Gucchi, Louis Vuitton.. big brand names lebel on luggage attracting theft.
All the large ones are gone now...
Large OOS
Missed the large one but at least i could get the medium one. thanks OP.

Hmm medium 3.4kg, I'd expect it under the 3kg mark...


I would say I expect the small to be under 2kg & the medium to be closer to 2kg than 3kg. Why on earth anyone buys a cabin case that takes up 1/4 of a 10kg allowance is beyond me.
great price, managed to bag one earlier today but now OOS
All OOS now.
These bags were used on a recent trip around the US which included internal flights and many of hotels. Held up well and still in great condition!

All OOS now.


hey if you want an alternative that's in stock for the small I found a good deal here



Why risk it? Do you really want to chance missing your flight, paying additional costs, etc ?
Maybe next time check the size of bag you need before buying one? Just a thought
No longer in stock (all sizes)****
showing in stock for me
Yes, showing stock when I just checked too.
Not the cheapest carry on I've seen TBH
Dunlop at Sports Direct currently £14.99

I've used that one and it's actually 55cm with handle down
