Samsonite Paradiver Light Duffle Review 

By  Enda

This is our review of the Samsonite Paradiver Light Duffle with wheels.  As the name would suggest this suitcase is classed as a duffel style bag.

This is from the high quality Samsonite brand, and comes with an RRP of £175. Yes that is expensive for a bag or holdall. However, when we checked out prices online, we were able to find if for around 20% less, at around £165

On average buyers rate this case with a 90% buyer satisfaction which is an excellent rating. Let's have a closer look.

How Buyers Rate the Samsonite Paradiver

When spending any money, it is always worth checking the buyer reviews. we like to read and summarise those as it gives me a sense if it is the right product for me. After all these people have bought the product, used it and then taken the time to leave a review.

They use a 5 star rating system with 5 being the highest and best rating, and 1 being the lowest rating. I have summarised these by percentage below.

Around 73 out of 100 people gave this duffle bag the full 5 star treatment. 86% rated it 4 stars or higher. 4% of buyers gave this a poor review.

What Buyers Didn't Like About the Samsonite Paradiver

There were no major complaints with this duffel case from Samsonite. Those who left those complained about not being able to figure out how to work the internal straps. One buyer said they had an issue with the stitching becoming stretched.

What Buyers Liked About the Samsonite Paradiver

Overall the reviews were good and this attracted an average 4.5 out of 5 stars which is a very high and consistent rating.

The bag has been carefully designed to be light, as that helps keep your luggage weight down. At the same time they have not compromised on the Samsonite quality.

It is good that there are a range of colour options and size options. The wheels are suitably soft enough so as they don't make a hard rattle on paving.

Buyers also said that the interior was really good, and we have show that in the image below.

Below we take a look at the more specific details of this type of bag. It is available in 3 sizes:

  • Small -  25 x 55 x 40 cm (H x L x W), weighs 2.4 Kg and has a 51 litre capacity
  • Medium - 28 x 67 x 42 cm (H x L x W), weighs 2.6 Kg and has a 74.5 litre capacity
  • Large - 31 x 79 x 44 cm (H x L x W), weighs 2.9 Kg and has a 121.5 litre capacity

It is made from a tough polyester material. That means the duffle bag is classed as a soft shell, that is hard wearing and easy to clean.

It has two wheels, and a telescopic handle, which does make it easy to navigate, and pull along behind you.

The bag is closed by a very sturdy zipper.

This is a very good cabin bag, with loads of room inside, and is extremely smart looking.
