For this video, I am reviewing the TravelPro Maxlite 4 21” Expandable Spinner Carry-on bag and the Delsey Helium Aero 19” International Carry-on. Yes, I understand they’re different sizes, one meant for domestic travel and the other meant for international.
Although they can’t be compared apples to apples entirely, this review I hope still gives you a good idea of their durability, storage, and function.
Some of the most important, and most often skewed information about these bags is the actual measurements of them. I decided to debunk this myself and have provided the actual measurements in the video and below:
TravelPro Maxlite 4 Measurements:
Advertised Measurements: 9”x14”x21”
Actual Measurements: 10”x14.25”x22.5”
Delsey Helium Aero Measurements:
Advertised Measurements: 9”x13.5”x19”
Actual Measurements: 9.25”x13.5”x22.25”
I performed a series of tests, and as I imagine some comments will point out, they’re not perfect. I had to figure out a way to replicate multiple years of wear and tear on these carry-on bags and this is the best I was able to come up with. If you have any ideas for future tests, please let me know!
In the end, both of these are great carry-on bags. Both TravelPro and Delsey manufacture a wide variety of other travel items such as backpacks, suitcases, garment bags and so much more. The TravelPro was incredibly lightweight, and the Delsey really didn’t have a smell as a lot of others have claimed.
In the end, I think it’s realistic I could have gotten anywhere from 3-6 years’ worth of use out of either of these carry-ons.
I’d love to know your thoughts and your experiences, please feel free to message me or leave them in the comments below!
**NOTE: Just to reiterate, this was not a paid advertisement. I didn’t receive anything from Delsey or TravelPro to do this video. I will admit I did try and get them to send me something, but couldn’t get the attention of anyone. I ended up purchasing these on Amazon with my own money and decided I wanted to destroy $160 worth of product (Genius right?).
I paid about $100 for the Delsey and was able to get the TravelPro for only $60 brand new! If you follow the links below, look for a “warehouse deal” on the page. It said it was going to show slight use, but it in fact did not. It was brand new, still with tags!
