The 81cm Firelite is strong, very light and extra large. Perfect for long trips, moving overseas or for those who just need to take more than average but still want a strong, good looking case that is easy to manage. The large Firelite is the suitcase of choice for many fashion and travel bloggers who take more clothes than average, travel frequently and often go on multi-leg trips.
Samsonite's lightest hard suitcase (along with the cosmolite)
81cm is classed as 'extra large', slightly larger than an average large case (75-80cm)
Stylish modern good looks
Capacity: 124L - higher than average capacity and is lighter than other hard-shells of its size.
Handle: A sturdy monopole, which saves on weight but does not compromise on quality, not suitable for placing a second bag on top (dual pole alternative is the Samsonite Litecube). Multi-lock positions for different sized travellers, easy to use push button release.
Wheels: 4x 360 degree rotating wheels for increased mobility.
Material: Made with Samsonite patented woven Polypropylene Technology
Zips: Unique to the Firelite, this sealed zip provides more security than an exposed zipper. It also increases the water resistance of the case, the sealed zip protects internal items from getting wet in light to heavy rainfall (note, any suitcase with a zip is not completely waterproof and should not be submerged in water)
Locks: TSA (United States Customs) approved, raised external lock that locks both zippers to the main compartment securely
Packing Structure: The shell structure of the two halves comes together into a 50/50 split down the middle of the case. This gives maximum access to both sides of the case.
Internal Storage: With a mesh screen on one side and compression straps on the other, there is ample organisation space to ensure that your belongings can be separated, but enough freedom to use the space how you wish.
Additional Features: The large Firelite has two sturdy handles, one on the top and one on the side to make it easier to carry and load in and out of vehicles.
Additional Features: The German Curv material exclusive to Samsonite is unmatched on the luggage market, incredibly strong and lightweight, it surpasses other brands by not compromising quality for weight
