Among other choices available out there, the Delsey 29″ Luggage Helium Aero can be a good solution for you who need a generously sized suitcase for trips exceeding a week. When it comes to durability, it may not be in the same league as an aluminum or metal luggage. That said, customer feedback indicates that it is a great bang for the buck. Let’s take a look at why this hard shell case is well worth checking out.
The Hardside Delsey Helium Aero is made from 100% polycarbonate. When it comes to hard luggage material, aluminum is considered the best by many. That said, luggages with aluminum metal construction are expensive due to its incredible durability. For many of us, a pure polycarbonate luggage is the best option. Not only lighter than metal cases, the flexible material is also impact resistant.
Measuring 29″ x 19.5″ x 12.5″, it has plenty of room for clothes, shoes, toiletries, and other things. The main compartment is expandable (up to 2 inches), giving you more space in case you pick up too many bargains while traveling. Just be careful with overstuffing and being over the 50 pound weight limit set by airlines. Also do not forget that the advertised height of 29″ does not include the wheels.
Helium Aero is offered in hardside and softside. The hardside model has two fully lined packing compartments, a useful feature for keeping clothes separated. With two spacious compartments, it provides a separate space for dirty ones. The softside that is constructed from polyester features a large single compartment with zippered pockets in the lid.
Weighing about 12.5 pounds, the luggage is very light given its size. This allows you to carry more baggage. The double spinner wheels gives great maneuverability. Compared with suitcases with two wheels, the 4 wheeler gives less weight on your arm. You should have no problem with manevering it around. The integrated TSA combination lock is another plus point of this product. The retractable handle has two stops. It is high enough for most people.
There are different lines of the Delsey luggage. If you feel that the 29″ luggage is too big for your travel needs, the smaller, 25 inch version might be easier to manage. The carry-on bag from the same company can also be a great option. Priced under $150 as of this writing, the price of the 29″ Aero is very reasonable. Not inexpensive but quite affordable.
The color choices will make yours stands out from the most common black and red cases. Several people have mentioned that the surface gets scratched easily. That said, customer feedback indicates that the construction of the luggage is very good. The product also has a 10-year limited warranty from the manufacturer. So, if you are in the market for a large, sturdy suitcase that is easy to roll, the 29″ Delsey Luggage Helium Aero is worth considering.
