Delsey Turenne Carry-On Review: One Of The World’s Lightest Carry-Ons

Prepare to be surprised when you pick up the Delsey Turenne. Weighing just 4.7 lbs., this carry-on is one of the lightest hardside suitcases on the market. This cleverly-designed bag is perfectly sized to fit almost any airline’s carry-on requirement, and packs in plenty of helpful features.

Delsey Turenne Review:

Price and Where to Buy: At the time of writing, the Delsey Turenne was on sale on Amazon for $203 and on Delsey’s website for $219.

[st_content_ad]How The Delsey Turenne Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. Pack more and still stay under the carry-on weight allowance, thanks to the Delsey Turenne’s incredibly light weight. A built-in TSA-approved combination lock keeps your suitcase secure, and the interior is fully lined to further protect your items. Two zippered dividers help keep you organized, as do the included two packing bags. Unlike most carry-ons, Delsey accounts for the wheels in handles in its sizing (21.75″ x 13.75″ x 9.75″), which means you won’t have to gate check your bag on account of it being too big for the overhead bin.
  • Portability: 10/10. The double spinner wheels roll super smoothly, and prevent the bag from tipping over. The handle retracts effortlessly and is nicely padded for extra rolling comfort.
  • Style: 10/10. The Turenne comes in stylish colors and looks much more expensive than it is (especially if you get it on sale).
  • Durability: 10/10. Despite the lightness, the 100 percent virgin polycarbonate is incredibly strong, and will withstand whatever the baggage handlers to do your suitcase. Plus, the suitcase comes with a 10 year warranty, just in case something goes wrong.

Final Verdict: Take the weight out of your hardside suitcase with the Delsey Turenne.
