Design

Exterior

The Samsonite Karissa Biz Duffle is a feminine duffle in an understated dignified way. This classy bag is well-crafted of durable Nylon and Polyurethane materials that is easy to clean and maintain.

It’s equipped with a exterior zippered pocket for storing items you need to accesses quickly like travel documents, a cell phone or a make-up compact. The strap is adjustable and removable for convenience and preference. Unlike a lot of duffle bags the rear side of this bag comes with a vital smart sleeve so you can loop this beauty onto your roller luggage.

I love how Samsonite choose simple metal hardware to give the bag a contemporary look. This bag’s beautiful simple design is perfect for modern, feminine travelers.

Color Options

The Samsonite Karissa Duffle comes in two classic colors. Black, with silver hardware, and light taupe with gold hardware. Both colors are very practical and versatile.

The light taupe is a nice change from your standard blacks or greys. It’s a refreshing look excellent for all seasons.

Interior

Inside is a large main compartment that could easily store a couple light outfits, a pair of shoes and a toiletry bag. It would be good as a overnight bag, or as a carry-on personal item you can easily slide under a seat.

The interior is not over complicated with lots of pockets. A simple zippered pocket is provided for small item you want to keep separate like jewelry or chargers. There are also two small opened top pockets well suited for writing utensils, lipstick, and/or cell phone.

Outside of personal use as a travel bag, this Samsonite duffle is great for modern business women and well equipped for business needs. A tablet, laptop, files, notebooks or other business essentials would comfortably fit inside with ease and convenience. However, if you like a bag with more pockets, this may not be the one for you. We suggest more of a tote style bag like the Briggs & Riley Baseline Travel Tote.

DESIGN GRADE 90

Durability

Since the Samsonite Karissa line is a relatively new line from Samsonite there are not many reviews online. However, this duffle made from high quality nylon material appears to hold up to the Samsonite reputation for quality durability. 

The exterior appears to be very sturdy. This bag is very unlikely to rip or tear because of the nature of the fabric. It’s also water repellent and easy to wipe down and clean.

This is a duffle with promise. Chances are you’ll be able to use this bag for years without problems.

DURABILITY GRADE 95

Price

As with most Samsonite products, this bag is pricey. At $190, depending on the sale, it’s in the higher priced category of luggage carry-ons.

However, remember it’s a Samsonite, a company well-known for their long lasting quality. So if you’re ready to commit to a long term-duffle, or you have a little extra cash to throw at a bag, this one is unlikely to disappoint.

What a gift it would be to a special lady in your life! This beauty would show you really care to buy her something more than just trendy.
