A superior piece of luggage is an investment — and what better advisors to trust than the very people who travel for a living? Flight attendants and pilots require suitcases that go above and beyond, and Travelpro is their go-to brand. And right now Amazon has a deal on the TravelPro Platinum Elite carry-on suitcase with USB port for charging electronics. This little wonder is 15% off, meaning $50 in savings—just in time for your spring and summer vacations.

Now let’s talk construction. This Travelpro suitcase is made of sturdy scuff-and-stain-resistant nylon with built-in accessory pockets. Its fold-out suiter and tie-down system let you pack away your clothes neatly—you can even expand it an extra two inches—and ensures that they’ll be wrinkle-free when you reach your destination.

The Travelpro Premium Elite suitcase is easy to navigate up and down stairs, in and out of car trunks, and through busy airports too, thanks to a precision-glide system, four-stop adjustable PowerScope handle, and 360-degree spinner wheels. Running late for boarding? Wheel this baby through the terminal at top speed—it’s got your back.

It even has an integrated lock that lets TSA agents safely open and close the bag for inspection.

“I travel a lot. I'm always looking for the grail, the perfect suitcase. This is very, very close,” wrote one fan. “I began flying with my brother in 1964 when he became an airline pilot and I was a wee lad. I don't remember all of his bags over the years, but he was proudest of his Travelpro.”

“I was planning 12 days in Italy and wanted to do it with one carry-on. I did some research and this bag looked like it might be the answer so I purchased it. What a great decision on my part,” wrote another happy traveler. “This bag is outstanding. You can pack a lot in it and it has outside pockets for the stuff you need to have fast access. It is the perfect size to fit in and out of various planes' overheads...It handles incredibly well. Spinners are great. The handle is the boss.”

The TravelPro Platinum Elite carry-on suitcase even comes with a lifetime limited warranty. If your bag is damaged by the airline, Travelpro will cover the cost of repairs. Now you’re going places!
