Travelpro has been in the industry for a long time and was started by a pilot who was frustrated with carrying his luggage. One of the pioneers in the luggage industry, Travelpro is responsible for the wheels that are there at the bottom of every luggage.
Founded in 1987 the company has reinvented the luggage more than once. They were the ones that introduced wheels at the bottom of these luggage bags for the first time. Since that virtually everyone has copied them.
They have an extensive background in luggage design and with their Platinum elite Carry-on line they look to appeal to oven more people. It is one of the best soft-sided cases available in the market today. You can fit a week’s worth of utilities and clothes in the bag and well be on your way to your destination,
The built-in USB port, a detachable bag, and garment bag are just some of the features that make it stand out from the other bag in the market. But it is also designed to be the most utility-based bag there is.

|Smoothest wheels in the business||The 29-inch model maybe too big for the overhead bins of international flights|
|Light and easy to carry|
It was designed with the frequent flyer in mind and it shows. The size and dimension of the bag is perfect for people who like carry-on their luggage. On top of that, the 23-inch size of the bag is compact yet good enough for most uses.
Its expandable design lets you stuff more stuff than usual in the bag without the need to get another bag. Frequent flyers are more than familiar with such situations where they sometimes have to get an extra bag for some extra things. The expandable nature of the bag makes it a problem of the past now.
You should be able to fit the bag in most US airlines but smaller international pales might be a problem. But you will have to be careful with the expansion pocket as if overstuffed it can easily not fit in the overhead bin.
The high-density nylon fabric used gives it great strength and also makes it very resistant to wear and tear. As we all know, baggage handlers are not the best at handling your bags. They will throw and slam it around and even in the cargo area, there is a chance it will be under other heavy bags. The nylon fabric remains unfazed under all these conditions and makes sure that your bag is unaffected by this abuse.
Since it is already resistant to wear and tear nothing much happens to it even after repeated abuse. You can use it for years without any problems. The leather handle also gives the bag a premium feel. Travel pro makes quality products with great attention to detail and this can be seen in the Platinum Elite bag.
Weight and capacity
The bag weighs 7.8 pounds (3.54 kg) which makes it great for solo traveling. It is light enough to be carried in a hurry across the airport when you need to catch a flight. Solo travelers would be happy with the weight as it will not weigh them down when exploring their space.
Not only that they will also be able to get more clothes and toiletries for their trips all thanks to the 46 liters of space available. For a single person, one should be able to squeeze in at least a week’s worth of clothes. This makes the Travelpro Platinum Elite the perfect bag for frequent travelers.
The chrome zippers that come with the bag are easy to use and the Precision Glide wheels are some of the smoothest ones in the business. They are smooth to use even over thick carpet and airport alike. This means that you can easily run with the bag and the wheels won’t slow you down.
No matter what your profession is, there is Travelpro for you. Whether you are a business person or travel influencer there is color available for you. You can get the Platinum Elite in Shadow black, rich espresso, bordeaux, vintage gray, intrigued black, coastal blue and navy blue.
The colors can be matte or gloss finished and you can let your personality shine through. No matter what you do the bag will be an extension of your fit or vibe you want to put out.
The one salient feature of the bag is that it does not tip forward even when it is fully packed. This is a great feature as people are sick of bags falling forward when left unattended.
Each Travelpro bag has been made with the traveler in mind. That means that each bag has a lot of pockets where you can store anything. One can easily fit in a laptop in the front pocket and their passport too.
Not only do you get their high brace for keeping your clothes divided, but you also get tear-resistant lining. The subtle leather appointments are also a great touch. Each of the two braces also have mesh pockets where you can store anything you want.
The expandable zipper section allows you to increase the area in the bag and get more stuff in. It eliminates the need for another small bag and you can have a compact traveling setup in no time.
The increase in the main compartment is a godsend for people who do not like to check-in their luggage. They can fit all the things they need in a single bag and travel without any problems.
But be sure that you do not use all the space available in the bag. It is very easy to overstuff the bag and then it won’t fit in the overhead bins in many airlines. This shouldn’t be a problem in most major airlines, but international flights can be problematic.
Charger and hidden ID tags
You can plug in your phone for charging while you are waiting at the airport. The hidden id tag also helps you identify your tag at the baggage belt and avoid confusion.
No matter what kind of traveler you are, a TravelPro is a must-have luggage that will make your travels a breeze. Their quality products and great after sales service makes them one of the best in the business.
