Elegant and practical, CRUISE LITE HARDSIDE is the first hard-side luggage that opens like a soft-side case. Clothing, coats and shoes can all be packed in one main compartment, accommodating larger items and maximizing space for a variety of packing options. The top lid opening also makes it easy to pack in small places, open the suitcase on a luggage rack, or access last minute items when the bag is packed in the trunk of a car. Built into the side handle, an overweight indicator will show you if your bag is over 50lbs. The lightweight polycarbonate material is scratch resistant and offers the style and durability of a hard-side case.
