Samsonite Firelite 4-Wheel 80cm Extra Large Suitcase

Product information

The Samsonite Firelite hard-sided suitcase is made from lightweight yet strong curv material - a perfect combination for any form of travel, especially air travel. Inspired by the extreme sport scene, the 4-wheel Firelite suitcase’s revolutionary design ensures sleek, smooth manoeuvring and a tough, robust exterior to survive anything that’s flung at it.

The main body of the suitcase is fitted with a 2-way, water-resistant zip that can be safely secured using the fixed TSA combination lock. This type of lock is exactly what you need when travelling to and from the USA, as it allows the airport authorities to search your suitcase without having to break it open.

The inside of the Samsonite Firelite suitcase is fully lined and features 2 elasticated packing straps on one side to keep you clothes in place, and a full-length pocket with zip fastening on the other to help you organise your packing.

Please note: All luggage is guaranteed against faulty workmanship. However, manufacturer’s guarantees do not cover damage due to overloading, mishandling in transit or airline damage. Should any transit damage occur, it is vital that you inform the airline or their representative before you leave the terminal.

Q & As

Rated 2.6 out of 5 by 8 reviewers.
Rated 1 out of 5 by Buy something else Good points Easy to manoeuvre, nice colours, light Bad points Expensive, scratch easily, particularly the red and blue, wheel fell off after a few outings. 26 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by So Light and maneuvrable Fantastic, beautiful suitcases.Everything we could wish for. APart from the lock, which was locked and could not be unlocked. John Lewis Customer Service were so helpful and the product was exchanged immediately. 08 March 2016
Rated 5 out of 5 by Light and sturdy It is 10 years since I purchased new suitcases. I bought both this size and the slightly smaller Firelite 75cm. I was amazed at how light and sturdy they are and saved over 4kg in weight just by changing suitcases! So far I have used them twice. Once on a long haul flight and once for a long weekend break. I have had no issues with breakages (fingers crossed) and whilst both are slightly scuffed they still look like new. As an added bonus they are so easy to wheel around that my children aged 6yrs and 9yrs can easily push them around the airport etc. I would recommend. 11 August 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Dents After first use there was a dent that needed to be popped out, wasted a lot of time at the airport to claim. Not easy when you have a baby!! Not worth spending this much, not sure why John Lewis still stock them. Bought this as my brother had the same bag, his also was dented which he claimed and received a new bag from BAA ! But wasted a lot of time. Not sure why I bought this. 29 May 2015
Rated 1 out of 5 by Don't buy! I invested in this suitcase because I expected it to be as durable as the other Samsonite suitcases I have had for years - but lighter. Frankly, it's rubbish. I used it on one flight and one train journey and when I was carrying it downstairs the handle broke. (It contained only clothes and wash bags.) By then it was covered in scratches and the trim had peeled off. It looked about 20 years old - rather than the two weeks I'd had it. I took it back to the Bluewater store and the first woman I spoke to was very helpful but the woman who eventually gave me the refund was very surly and clearly wanted me to accept a repair. I pointed out it wasn't fit for purpose and she muttered something about Samsonite not refunding John Lewis - which I'm afraid isn't my problem. No apology from her either. Wish I'd read the reviews but I believed the sales assistant at Oxford St. 17 February 2015
Rated 2 out of 5 by smasonite wheeled cases yes i bought two of these breakable suitcases from john lewis, and after a long haul trip, one has damaged zip liner and the case has been dented, and as last reviewer only had clothes in it, and not over packed, not happy, these are not as study as my old samsonite cases, but they are very light a good point 07 October 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Seemed OK but Easyjet ruined it Very light and seemed to have good fittings, zips etc. Did one "round the world" trip with only an array of scratches, but it has now been destroyed by Easyjet on a short European flight, Loaded only with clothes and to a weight of 17kg, it arrived at Gatwick with the wheels stoved in and significant tearing of the "indestructible" case material. Not up to the job compared to my 25 year old Samsonite Oyster which has done a million miles and still going strong. The Firelight is indeed light, but it is not robust. 23 July 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very light and durable Extra large trolley case fantastic if you have 30 kg allowance. Lightweight case made from ( CURV ) material, enabling strong and extremely light suitcase. The case has a unique dynamic design. Water resistant coated zipper. TSA lock for secure travel to the USA. The TSA lock is a special lock which is built in to the case, you just use the three digit combination as you would the only difference is rather than THE Transportation Security Administration at the airport can override the lock in order to check your belongings. Rather than break the lock. The case is made in Europe. The only downside to the case is it is prone to scratches. 29 January 2014
