Samsonite Omni Review: 7 Pros and 4 Cons

A lot of us have done it.

We get to the ticket booth and lug our suitcases onto the scale only to find out our checked baggage is too heavy ☹

At that point, we have to decide if we want to throw out or, pay a hefty "overweight luggage" fee.

Going over your weight requirements is often the most common problem faced by travelers.

In an attempt to help alleviate this pain point, the Samsonite Omni was introduced as a solution by giving us a lightweight suitcase that allows you to keep your heavier items without worrying as much about the additional weight.

It’s a hard side spinner suitcase that gives you the optimal space for your travel essentials that’s both durable and price friendly while letting you choose from three options for sizes i.e.20-inch, 24-inch, and 28-inch.

Pros of the Samsonite Omni

While everyone's needs are different depending on if you're using it for business or pleasure; the pros that a Samsonite Omni PC sinner set user can enjoy include but not limited to are:

  • Build Materials - The polycarbonate construction makes Samsonite Omni a durable carrier for your travel essentials. Travel bags are expensive and cannot be bought every other day hence the durability and strength of this suitcase is a plus for those who love to travel often.
  • Impact resistant - Long travels often lead to wear and tear of traveling bags and cases. This line of Samsonite bags have been made to flex under stress, then come back to its original shape. You can be worry free about any gadget, accessory or  getting damaged while it is packed inside this suitcase.
  • The Spinner wheels - that can rotate 360 degrees are an amazing feature considering the effortless mobility that they offer. Paired with the pull handle means you can pull your case with ease. The smooth movement helps to avoid exhaustion before reaching the destination and an excellent option for women, aged and sick people.
  • Capacity vs Body Ratio - A travel bag is supposed to provide maximum space for packing, and that is precisely what the Samsonite Omni does. It not only provides ample space for packing but is also expandable, providing more capacity in case of over-packing.
  • Reasonably Priced - While it may not be the cheapest suitcase out there (and you certainly do not want to collect garbage by paying an insignificant amount), however, it is not on the pricier side either. The price is somewhat a balance between the costs and features and even greater on sales or special discounts packages.
  • Warranty - The individual suitcase, as well as the set, comes with a warranty that also ensures fulfillment of the promise made by the company, hence making it a great investment.
  • Secure - Ever lost your bag with multiple valuables in it or faced a broken lock leading to stolen goods? Well, the Samsonite Omni has this covered with side mounted TSA combination lock. The lock being TSA approved eliminates any inconvenience during airport security checks.

Cons

No set is perfect. Here is a list of some of the cons we have noticed:

  • Too Large for Carry On Luggage? - It's not the most favorable suitcase for those looking for a compact piece of luggage. The size of the 20-inch model can exceeds the maximum limit of some airlines depending on the size of their overhead bins. It would be wise to double check the size requirements of the airlines you'll be flying on. 
  • Scuffs Over Time - Specifically the Burnt Orange and Radiant Pink colors might make the scuffs and scratches a bit more visible.
  • Wheels Break if Abused - The small multidimensional spinner wheels can break if mishandled as most people are not accustomed to using 4 wheels in a suitcase.
  • There is a chance that you might over pack heavier items considering it to be a lightweight suitcase and ample storage space and end up going overweight with your luggage. 

Final Verdict

A detailed Samsonite Omni review shows that this model would be perfect for those who don't like to babysit their suitcases protected by ordinary locks and don't want to compromise on durability,

Samsonite Omni offers the perfect combination of safety and strength.

With the amazing color options like teal and radiant peak, this suitcase does not compromise on individual style either.
