Goodbye Boring Luggage, Hello American Tourister Colora #PackMoreFun


When I got married ten years ago, we received a set of American Tourister luggage as a wedding present.  So I’m already a fan, and on many occasions I’ve sang the praises and passed along my recommendations of this particular brand of luggage.  With that confidence in quality under my belt, I was happy to meet a new, most welcome addition to our travel lovin’ family:  the American Tourister Colora!

I really love this bag.  Let me tell you why…

American Tourister Colora

American Tourister Colora SpinnerWhat a fantastic, well designed, and FUN line of luggage this is.   You pick up quickly on the playful vibe by following American Tourister’s #PackMoreFun hashtag on social media, but your first clue about Colora line is the gorgeous, distinctive colors these bags are available in:  Lime green, Orange, and Raspberry.

Mine’s lime green.  He’s stunning, and lovely.  (And I call him Mike Wazoski…  :)  )

But he’s oh, so much more than just a pretty, stand-out-wherever-he-goes kinda bag.   Colora comes in three sizes; the size I’m featuring here is their carry on size, the Colora 20″ Spinner (dimensions: 20.0″ x 14.5″ x 8.5″).

When you first examine an American Tourister Colora, you will instantly notice the durable, high quality construction and well thought out design features. And how can you go wrong with a 10 year Warranty

The Spinner offers two sturdy, comfortable handles for quick grabbing:  one on the top, and one on the side of the case.  Check out that protective coating along the typical rub-point edges.

There are also two exterior, easy access pockets which are generously apportioned and run all the way to the bottom of the bag.  Awesome.  Plenty of space for your book, laptop, travel documents, any of those go-to items you’ll need to be able to grab along the way during travel.

In the past, I’ll admit I’ve had occasional carry on bag envy at the airport.  Have you ever seen those people standing in line, who casually nudge their wheelie case and it glides in any direction?  Thanks to four multi-directional spinner wheels allowing 360 degree effortless motion, that’s what you’ll experience with the American Tourister Colora bag.  It’s fantastic!

Now let’s talk about the surprisingly roomy and well laid out interior.  You’ve got your standard mesh zipper compartment on the back side of the lid.  But there’s two other goodies… a smaller mesh zipper compartment along the side depth; and a clear, sealed, removable toiletries bag.  Genius, I say!

There are also two, fairly standard straps for you to cinch down your contents – helping both compact and keep them in place.  But let’s talk a little more about that toiletry bag.  It’s a really nice weight, not flimsy at all, and you can unsnap and remove it.   Again, this is so well thought out.  It leaves you options such as separating your liquids when you go through security, or just keeping those liquids you pack from leaking onto your clothes.  I really love this feature.

Now let’s see it packed.  I am leaving soon on a family Disney World vacation, and have been stashing what I’d like to take as carry on.   On an interesting side note, American Tourister has been named the Official Luggage of Disney World and Disneyland!

With my kids Disney trip surprise goodie bags all ready to grab and place on our Disney resort beds after check-in, to the swim suits we may need right away, before Magical Express arrives with the rest of our luggage… the Colora will be a crucial addition to make sure we #PackMoreFun into our Disney trip!

I… SPY… MAGIC BANDS!!  Wooo hoooo!!  Sorry.  I’m really excited about this trip.  And my Colora bag!

I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the prices, and their impressive quality and design make American Tourister Colora well worth considering.

Hi, I'm Tami! Mom of 2, full time software engineer, who loves enjoying the outdoors, staying active, travel, reading books, and eating desserts. We are pretty much always planning our next trip to Disney...


  1. I never thought of it as the carry on bag of family goodies! As any mom knows those surprise bags are crucial!

  2. Love the review. I just got my Magic Bands in yesterday. I may be packing them just where you did. Thanks for the idea!

  3. Great review, Tami! I love how you stored your Magic Bands in the small zipper compartment in the inside of the bag! Thanks for the packing ideas!

  4. Awesome review Tami! If I didn’t already have one I would be purchasing this bag right now. I hope you have a great vacation and I can’t wait to hear all about it when you get back!

  5. Great review! I love the idea of packing the surprises in this bag… and I love the magic bands hiding in the side zip pocket! I wondered what would be a good use of that area! :)

  6. Great review Tami! I love all the thought that went into the design of the American Tourister Colora line. So many little details that you’d never notice, unless they weren’t there.

  7. Great review! I’m excited to see those Magic Bands in your bag! We have those exact same colors ordered for our next family trip (plus a red one as well). I can’t wait to receive them! Have fun!

  8. Love these bags!! The Blogorail reviews have convinced me that American Tourister is definitely the bag for me, no to choose a color…maybe one of each!!

  9. Wow! The color really POPS in your photos! Love how the bag is making you even more excited for your upcoming trip!

  10. With your American Tourister COLORA you’ll never have bag envy again Tami!!

  11. I hear these American Tourister bags have a ten year warranty – so your AT luggage from your wedding is probably still kicking! These new Colora bags, however, are probably a prefect replacement.

  12. Great review Tami! I love that your bag has a name! I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on the Magic Bands!

  13. Great review, Tami! I love how American Tourister has so many pockets a zippered compartments to keep everything organized. I wonder if the knew just how perfect that pocket would be for Magic Bands. :-)

  14. Love your new “Mike Wazowski”! Very handy, fun, and functional!

  15. Awesome review Tami, I love so many things about this bag from the size to the wheels.

  16. I love the bright color!
