The Samsonite Arq 55cm cabin suitcase features the unique 80/20 packing structure in which the case has a main packing compartment and a lid rather than the usual split through the middle (50/50) of hard suitcases. This makes this a terrific option for those who prefer the more traditional way of packing like a soft suitcase, and for those who frequently stay in small hotel rooms as the lid can rest against the wall instead of opening right up and taking up floor space. The Arq also features the new Aero-Trac™ suspension wheels, which offer quitter, smoother rolling even on uneven surfaces such as cobblestones. The Arq offers terrific value for a Samsonite suitcase.

We recommend this suitcase for:
- The Arq is suited to those who love the security and protection offered by the hard suitcases but prefer the more traditional packing structure of a soft suitcase. This suitcase can be ‘lived’ out of by propping the lid against the wall, as opposed to a normal hard suitcase which needs to be opened right up through the centre to get things in and out of.
- Samsonite 'Spin Trunk' Customers: For those that loved Samsonite’s previous Spin Trunk suitcase, the Arq is a newer, better version with improved functionality and durability, particularly in the wheels.
