3 Years On The Road With The Samsonite Cubelite
Josh Rogers is a salesman. A darn good one at that. And like most kick-ass salesmen, he travels, a lot. He tested the Samsonite Cubelite for us way back in 2014, and that same case has been at his side, rolling along, ever since.
He reached out recently to let us know that it was still an epic travel companion and, considering the beating it’s taken, that it’s held up remarkably well! So, firstly, we asked for a travel log, so we could put things in perspective, and put a little math to the sheer amount of distance and travel (and hotel buffet breakfasts) Josh has logged on his journeys.
And here it is (it’s kinda impressive).

The pics don’t lie
Being the cutthroat carry journalists that we are, we asked for a bunch of photos as proof. When they arrived in the digital mail, we were suitably impressed. A few scuffs, sure. A slight shaving of rubber, yup. Banged up wheels, you bet. But all in all, it’s a fine example of great carry made to go the distance.
Fine work, Samsonite!
Anyone else have a workhorse dear to their heart?
