If you buy one thing for 4th of July, make it this Samsonite luggage set — it's over 50% off

Hey, Amazon Prime members! You get this hardside expandable set for over 50% off!

Summer travel — planning it, packing for it, going on it — evokes a mindset of fun, carefree adventure. But upgrading your luggage collection is no time for half-baked impulse buys: You'll want your ensemble to last you through this year's vacay and many, many more, so think durability, quality ... and reputation. Put those three descriptives together and one name comes to mind: Samsonite. Think about it: they've been around since 1910 (!) and their brand loyalty is insane — untold millions of globetrotters have been tossing their bags in car trunks, toting them through train stations and wheeling them around airport concourses for decades. Well, happy birthday to you — and America — because a stellar 2-piece Samsonite set is now over half (i.e., 54%) off during Amazon's 4th of July sale.

Why is this a good deal? 💰

It's not often that we get this excited about a deal, but when it's this impressive, can you really blame us? This two-piece set is the most affordable it's been all year! Since this is such an unexpected discount, we suspect it won't last long, so we recommend snagging it now while you still can.

Why do I need this? 🤔

Samsonite is one of the few luggage brands that frequent flyers and even flight crew members always reach for since its luggage is known for its durability. This two-piece set, which includes a 21-inch carry-on and a 28-inch checked suitcase, has the endurance factor down, thanks to its hard-side shell exterior that's built to withstand the rigors of baggage claim.

If you're an admitted over-packer or love indulging in the occasional vacation shopping trip (no judgment here), you'll also appreciate that these spinners are expandable, so feel free to hit the boutiques and souvenir stands to your heart's content.

Each piece also has all of the elements that make Samsonite an all-star luggage brand, like TSA-approved locks, adjustable ergonomic handles, divider pockets for easy organization and oversized multi-directional 360° dual wheels for smooth, quiet movement. Their combined weight of just 16 pounds strikes the perfect balance between "easy to move" and "hard to break." Oh, and remember what we said about owning these for the long haul? Well, they come with a 10-year limited warranty.

It's worth mentioning that these are also easy to stow when not in use, since the carry-on nests neatly inside the checked piece, thus taking up minimal space in your closet! (Keep in mind that you may have to unzip the expanding zipper for this to work.)

What reviews say 💬

This set ranks No. 1 in Amazon's "Suitcases" category for so many reasons — just ask the 10,000 shoppers who've given it a perfect review!

Pros 👍

One of them put this set to the ultimate test by taking them on "several international trips" over 18 months, and they were pleasantly surprised. "They are holding up well [after] being tossed around at airports," they wrote. "Perfect size even for a month-long [trip]."

"Took it to Malaysia and will go to Japan after, then back home," another reviewer said. "The handles are very stable and it's slightly more lightweight compared to the other Costco version. It's very clean in appearance."

One longtime Samsonite decided to replace their soft-sides with this tougher option for more protection. "I bought Samsonite due to warranty [and] cost," they explained. "I would recommend this set not only due to the cost [and] brand but also how the luggage is arranged [on the] inside. It is also great that the carry-on fits inside the larger for storage."

Cons 👎

Amid all the raves, there were a few quibbles. To wit, shared one reviewer: "Wish the instructions to set the code had been easier to find," the reviewer shared.

Some customers claimed that these got roughed-up more easily than expected, but didn't consider that a deal-breaker since the hard-sided exterior gave them peace of mind. "They had some scratches on them, but nothing broke," one of them said.

This duo is availlable in 8 colors, but the navy hue is a clear shopper-favorite.
