I am excited to share with you all the Travelpro Maxlite 5 Collection. There is a bag for everyone in this collection and while they don’t have the bells and whistles of Travelpro’s Elite collections the super lightweight luggage, available in an assortment of colours and styles is something I have to share with you all.
Maxlite 5 Rolling Underseat Carry-On
I’ve always struggled with carry-on only travel. I’m just not that efficient a packer I guess. So on a recent 4-day road trip, I decided to take my new TravelPro bag for a spin. This bag is even smaller than a standard carry-on I had my doubts.
The TravelPro Maxlite 5 Details
- Height: 17.5 in
- Width: 14.5 in
- Depth: 8.5 in
- Weight: 5.0 lbs 2.3 kg
- Large roomy interior
- Laptop/Tablet padded pocket
- Removable sleeve with one side plastic compartment for cosmetics and the other mesh pockets for organizing other items.
- Two side pockets
Great Underseat Carry-on Bag
I love this bag. I can’t believe how much stuff I was able to fit inside of it. I organized everything in packing cubes and was able to pack camera gear, plugs for charging, my clothes and cosmetics with room to spare.
For trips where I will be checking a bag, I can see this bag being an excellent airport bag. Instead of lugging a full-size carry-on or lugging a backpack or tote this is the ideal size.
Cons of the Maxlite 5 Underseat Carry-on Bag
The curved top of the bag while it is supposed to keep the bag from tipping over when full, actually is too narrow to sit another bag on top. If I place a standard tote bag on it and the tote slides down the front of the carry-on bag.
More Products from the TravelPro Maxlite 5 Collection
The Maxlite collection features various sizes of luggage made with a durable Polyester fabric coating that resists stains and water. The bags are designed with a bottom tray and shape to minimize tipping over.
Maxlite® 5 Soft Tote
I have this bag on my radar to go with my underseat carry-on bag. The Maxlite 5 Soft Tote is also compact and can be stacked onto any of the luggage. This would also make a great overnight or weekend bag. The bag is made with the same durable fabric as the rest of the collection.
