Chester Minima Carry-On Luggage Review + Giveaway
Disclosure: This post was done in partnership with Chester. All opinions are 100% my own.
As you probably know, I travel quite a bit. I LOVE travel. I do not love: planning what to pack, packing and I especially don’t love unpacking.
Through the years though, I’ve kind of perfected my travel routine. I travel light and that has served me well. I rarely check a bag as I’ve found that if I can go carry-on, things just seem to flow better and there is a much less chance of me losing my luggage.
And here’s the thing I’ve learned about travel: it’s ALWAYS better when you simplify. And that’s why they got things SO right with the Chester Minima luggage.
Speaking of luggage, I’ll also admit that through my travels I’ve become a bit of a luggage snob. When I first started traveling, I was going through a suitcase per year. My bags were getting beat up, zippers breaking, wheels popping off – you name it. That doesn’t mean that you need to break the bank when shopping for a suitcase, but it does mean that you can buy quality and you can shop smart.
As you know, I’m building out my 2019 Holiday Gift Guide and I’m proud to share that the Chester suitcase has made the ranks as one of my picks this year for gifts for the travelers on your list, and let me tell you why:
Probably my very favorite thing about the Chester carry on luggage is that it is ultra light (only 7lbs!) and yet it’s so durable! It’s also water-resistant, and made of 100% Makrolon polycarbonate hardshell (lighter than aluminum and more durable/flexible than most plastics, including ABS).
Have I mentioned that it’s really (really!) pretty to look at too. And not only is this piece of luggage strong, it’s easily cleaned. It really is the perfect hardshell carry on luggage and guess what, it’s also the perfect size. It has TSA and IATA approved exterior dimensions (21.5” x 13.5” x 8.5”) that meet domestic and international airline requirements and fit overhead bins of both small and large planes making it a fantastic go-to for all types of getaways.
I’m kind of picky about my compartments too. The Chester Minima has two spacious compartments, three interior organizers to store smaller items, and a removable nylon laundry bag to separate clean and dirty clothes. I love the feature of the removable laundry bag, truly brilliant!
If you’ve ever struggled through an airport with a clunky suitcase then you’ll also enjoy knowing that this suitcase moves effortlessly! It’s so slick, so easy on the arms and it just flows right along with you. It has 100% aluminum telescoping ergonomic handle with two lock positions for ultimate control and maneuverability. Equipped with top and side easy grab handles.
This cabin luggage also includes top and side easy grab handles. And look how sleek:
And my favorite part about it, and why I feel so confident in sharing it with you is that The CHESTER Minima carry-on suitcase is designed to last forever. FOEVER!! And the folks behind this brand are so confident in that they they offer free returns and a 10-year limited warranty.
And honestly, the kicker for me is how sleek and pretty this suitcase is! I selected the Sand color (it’s kind of a beige) and it’s SO pretty. I get compliments on it every time I travel.
Where to purchase the Chester Minima Carry-on Suitcase
You get what you pay for and sometimes it’s well worth investing in a piece of luggage that will not only stand up to the wear and tear of travel, but one that looks and moves nicely as well.
I’m excited to share that you can not only find the Chester Minima Carry-On Suitcase on Amazon, but they currently have a special $10 off coupon that you can clip to bring the price down a bit. You can also find it at Walmart and on the Chester Travels website.
