Samsonite Winfield 2 - A HobbyKraze review
Features at a Glance
- Winfield 2 is made up of 100% Polycarbonate, which makes it flexible, lightweight and strong, hence keeping your contents/equipment safe. It also makes your travel extra smooth as you don’t have to carry around a large and heavy suitcase everywhere around.
- Side Mounted TSA compatible combination locks are present to ensure extra security of your luggage. They provide you with mental comfort that your priceless possessions are safe.

Pros - What We Like!
The suitcase has been designed while keeping in mind all the factors that directly impact the comfort of your travel, such as space, durability, design, and movability. It makes for a great investment that can last a lifetime if used carefully.
Here’s a detailed list of the pros of Samsonite Winfield 2:
Relatively Inexpensive – The Samsonite Winfield 2 is cheaper in price compared to other suitcases belonging to different brands that offer much fewer features. While even the price of an individual bag is great in terms of the features that it provides, buying a 2 piece set or a set of three can save you much more. Hence the price makes it a perfect deal for you if you want it for yourself, or to give as a Christmas/Wedding gift.
Warranty – The 10-year guarantee this Samsonite comes with gives you additional piece of mind. While being a durable suitcase, the warranty allows you not to worry about small damage for a long time.
Lightweight & Strong – The polycarbonate body is a massive advantage as it makes your luggage lightweight and easy to carry for you on long journeys. It might look a delicate at first glance; however, it gives the suitcase a strong and durable body that can flex under stress and then come back to its original shape and position. Hence, on the one hand, it keeps your contents safe and on the other, it saves you from the embarrassment of traveling with a dented suitcase.
Agile – The spinner wheels with the combination of the telescopic handle are a huge plus as they allow the suitcase to move freely in all directions in an effortless way. This effortless movability of this suitcase makes it an ideal choice for women, elderly and children.
Security – The TSA approved locks makes this suitcase an extremely safe carrier for travel essentials. The locks with keys can become a nuance if keys are lost during the journey; hence a code protected lock is the safest yet hassle-free option.
Cons - What We Are Not Huge fans Of!
Like many products that come to the market, this one also is subjected to some disadvantages or cons.
Some of the apparent drawbacks of Samsonite Winfield 2 are identified below:
Too Large for Carry-on – The Samsonite Winfield 2 comes in three different sizes. The 24” and 28” sizes might be slightly larger than the maximum size allowed as per the recent requirements of some of the airlines. This suitcase is classified as a carry-on; however you need to make sure that if it will be allowed as one. Some airlines might ask you during check-in.
Show Scuffs on Bright Color Designs – While the brushed design and colors like charcoal may not show any scuffs and scratches easily, however, the more shiny and bright colors are easy to get scratched and for the marks to look prominent on the case.
4 Spinner Wheels – having 4 wheels instead of usual 2 might be difficult to carry and maneuver for those who aren’t accustomed to using spinnerwheels.
Could Forget Code – The TSA lock provides extra security, however, that safety can become a nuance if someone not using the suitcase for long forgets the code.
The square design and inside dividers provide optimal capacity that can be increased with expandable zippers. Though it might be difficult to slide for those who never used a 4-wheel suitcase before, however, once you get the grip of it, this product allows easy and lightweight mobility throughout the journey while keeping your content harm free from the effects of mishandling and protected against a safety breach.
The security code can always be saved in the phone memory, or any other medium that is easily accessible to you, so that you won’t be facing any issues while opening up the locks.
