Sturdiness & Security
Samsonite has established a reputation for manufacturing durable luggage and this bag stays true to their promise. The Samsonite Omni Hardside 20 Inch Spinner is made of 100 percent polycarbonate, a material that imparts excellent impact resistance. However, what truly makes it an exceptionally durable carry-on bag is its unique design that features ribs across the front. These ribs prevent bending when heavy objects are placed on it, thereby keeping the belongings packed inside safe and damage-free. Like all other Samsonite cabin bags, it is provided with a side-mounted TSA lock that ensures security during travel.
Our Rating: 4.5/5
Ease of Use
A lightweight cabin bag, the Samsonite Omni Hardside 20 Inch Spinner is provided with four multidirectional, zero-effort spinner wheels for effortless navigation. This means that you can easily pull your back behind or move it alongside using the retractable handle that extends elegantly from the suitcase and can be kept neatly stored inside when not in use. The only drawback is that the retractable handle is not adjustable to different heights and there are no side handles available.

This is a small carry-on bag that is suitable to pack clothing for a weekend trip. It has a simple interior with a mesh zippered compartment available on one side to keep toiletries and other accessories. The main compartment is provided with crisscross elastic bands that clip in the middle and keep clothing in place during travel. In addition, a small vertical pocket is also available in the bottom compartment to keep valuables.

The Samsonite Omni Hardside 20 Inch Spinner boasts a rugged yet professional look that features horizontal ribs on the front. The micro-diamond texture of the bag makes it highly scratch-resistant, which means that you will be able to flaunt a pristine, scuff-free bag on all your journeys for a long time.
Our Rating: 4/5
Value for Money
One of the more pocket-friendly carry-on bags offered by Samsonite, Omni Hardside Spinner is definitely worth your money if you are looking for a sturdy carry-on bag. However, the bag weighs 4.8kg which means that you will have to be careful when packing your things in order to avoid exceeding the luggage weight allowance of your airline. Otherwise, it is a fairly decent bag that not only looks elegant, but also offers great performance!
