The Delsey Helium Aero has a modern and durable design
I think this luggage is right on the money in regards to sturdiness. It’s equipped to last for years of travel use. The hardcase is 100% polycarbonate like many Delsey suitcases. It’s not only attractive but more importantly very durable while still being lightweight.
I’m guilty of the whole rearrange my items, sit on the luggage, pull the zipper, and repeat until you get the bag closed, routine. But this Delsey luggage expands to give you 2 extra inches. With a carry-on you always need it.
By the way, all the zippers are different colors so that you know which zipper is for what. That’s the first time I’ve seen that.
As the pictures show, there is a TSA approved zipper lock. The fact that it comes with a built in lock is so much better than having to mess with a purchased after-market lock.
The wheels glide effortlessly on various surfaces, and the spinner design allows for 360 degree maneuvering. The retractable handle feels comfortable in the palm, and pushes back flat against the case when I’m not using it.
I really love the glossy finish because it can be easily wiped clean. It also has a neat ribbed texture that make it stand out more, compared to a flat finish.
