[The Bay] Travelpro Maxlite 5 65% off

The Bay has some Travelpro Maxlite 5 luggage pieces for 65% off until Dec. 13th:

Backpack: $52.50
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... olor=BLACK

Rolling 17.5-Inch Underseat: $59.50
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... 41595.html

Soft Tote Bag: $73.50
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... color=GREY

International 21.75-Inch Carry-On Spinner: $77
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... 41483.html

27-Inch Expandable Spinner: $87.50
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... 41484.html

31-Inch Expandable Spinner: $98
https://www.thebay.com/product/travelpr ... color=GREY

I assume it will be the same price in store. Free shipping on orders over $69 and in-store returns plus 1% through Rakuten.

Now I realize this luggage isn't for everyone as you can find cheaper pieces, but they are reasonably well-made, light and come with a limited lifetime warranty.

I have the international carry-on spinner and I believe it qualifies for carry dimensions for all airlines. I can attest that they were a pleasure to travel with compared to some of my lesser/cheaper luggage. Can't speak towards their longevity though.

I'm not sure on delivery times, but you could possibly take advantage of the e-gift card promo currently on too:

I think this seems to be a very hot deal - this luggage brand has great reviews on Amazon.ca and ATLs for similar models are higher

Travel Pro Softside Maxlite 29" - $141, but averages around $220 in the recent year

Travel Pro 15" - recent ATL is $98. (smaller than the Bay 17.5")


Good reviews from RFD members in the past buying the previous generation from the same company: amazon-ca-hot-carry-travelpro-maxlite-5 ... #p30382622

May be yes in spec. I have owned and used this 21inch carry on for last 3 and half years. Not a single problem with any airline so far (frequent with Air Canada, United, occasionally with Westjet, Delta, JAL).

In newer planes like Boeing 737 Max series, the luggage can be put on the side. On older planes it’s mostly ok to put on just wheels first. There was once it didn’t fit (Bombardier?) and the flight attendant had to put it wheels facing out. It was never needed to be on the long side.

The carry on is light enough and expandable. Perfect for the 3-5 days business trips I usually had. I would recommend it any day.

I think you are confusing Maxlite 5 with the new Maxlite Air line that came out this year. I bought my Maxlite 5 rollaboard in 2019.

Hot deal for me anyways, been looking for a replacement 21.5 spinner and a quality brand. I’d upvote you twice if I could 🤣
For $87 after tax and free shipping, this hit the mark by a long shot! No more rolling away on angles for me, Yay!

If you’re serious about carry-on only, the combo to get is maxlite rollerboard 20” with the tote. Rollerboard is a more efficient design for space over spinner and the tote has straps to slide over the luggage handle. Both are the max size you can carry-on, light and space efficient.

The bay has the soft tote but not the 20” rollerboard atleast not on their website. I bought mine in-store at the bay over 5 years ago. Travelpro website has a sale going on right now but that’s typical with luggage. I’ve done several 3 week trips with carry-on only using this combo, it holds a lot if you carefully fold and pack. It’s not worth the risk going with the larger size some international airlines are much more diligent about checking size and weight. You see people getting away with oversized carryon bags often on westjet/air Canada but that’s not the norm everywhere.

We have a trip booked for March for 2 adults and 5 kids. Wondering out loud here....With all the news of checked bag losses, we could ill afford to lose one bag. I'm thinking 7 carry on would suffice for 10 days and the checked bag fees saved would pay for at least new carry on bags.

My last 2 domestic trips out of YYZ, AC was checking bags before security, some dude with a giant duffle bag was trying to make his case but they were having none of it.
