If you’re a carry-on-only type of traveler, you know how important the weight of your suitcase is. Many airlines, especially international ones, have strict weight limits—so starting with a heavy bag will leave you with minimal wiggle room for packing. Samsonite’s C-Lite Carry-On Spinner Suitcase is one of the lightest weight carry-on suitcases on the market. Weighing just 4.5 lbs, this ultra-light spinner suitcase helps you travel light. 

The Samsonite C-Lite suitcase is the brand’s updated version of the much beloved Samsonite Cosmolite suitcase. The new model is lighter weight and has a number of upgraded features. With its innovative design, advanced features, and legendary Samsonite durability, this suitcase is one of the best carry-ons out there. 

The C-Lite suitcase is made from a feather-light, trademarked Curv material that’s also extremely durable, so it will withstand anything the airline baggage handlers can do to it.
