Our UK Review of the American Tourister - Lock'n'Roll Spinner

This is a very high quality hard shell suitcase. American Tourister is a very popular brand of luggage, and this is one of their higher end products. This case comes in a range of 12 different colours, and is available in three different sizes. The one I have shown below is in the very attractive Nocturne Blue.

American Tourister - Lock'n'Roll Spinner 75 cm, Nocturne Blue Reviewed

As you can see from the image, this is a really nice looking case. It is however an expensive option and costs just under £100. So this will not be a case that everyone can afford, but if you can, it is a very good buy.

Even though the number of low ratings was very low at 4%, I always like to have a look at those. When I did I found that their complaints were about the quality of the case. They believed that for this type of spend, the quality of the case was not good enough.

American Tourister is a very well known high end luxury luggage brand. Their luggage generally is expensive, and as such, out of the price range for many people. There is little doubt that this ia a very high quality case, if you can afford it.
