Summary: Antler have a lot of distinctive designs, for me, none are as stylish as the Antler Clifton hard shell cases. The uneven ridged bands just work. Not in a garish or deliberately ‘out there’ kind of a way, these cases are distinctive without being loud. There are 3 sizes in the Clifton range. Cabin, medium or large versions can be bought individually. If you are looking for a set, then you can get all 3 together.
Feedback from buyers of Antler cases is always solid. These are no exception. You can check out the close-ups and colour choices in the full picture gallery over on this amazon.co.uk product page.
- Stylish Clifton Collection: The Clifton collection has a little bit of everything, with extra care put into every detail and a pleasing pastel finish for eye-catching luggage as you travel.
- Large Hard Shell Case: The tough hard shell exterior makes our Clifton suitcases virtually indestructible. The large version measures 80 x 51.5 x 37.5 cm, while its expanded capacity of 132 litres provides maximum packing room.
Detailed Review of the Antler Clifton Hard Shell Spinner Suitcases
These cases have a sturdy, almost squat look – while maintaining a very distinctive style. They come in 3 different sizes:
- Cabin Size: 55x 40x 20cms with a 37-litre capacity
- Medium Size: 67.5x 45.5 x32.5cms with an 83-litre capacity (when expanded)
- Large: 80x 51.5x 37.5c, with a 132-litre capacity (when expanded).
Like many Antler cases, the angle of the wheels will give you a second glance. This looks stylish, though those wheels are super-tough doubled versions. They will easily withstand the belts and movements that checked in luggage undergoes every time.
These cases come in a choice of colours. While most people will opt for the black (which looks amazing), you can also pick light blue, pink, mint, olive, taupe or white. All of the lighter colours come with a distinctive black trim.
The zip is not dead centre, with one compartment having a deeper profile than the other. This is not as marked as the front-opening cases – though it is noticeable.
Antler claim that the Clifton cases’ hard shells are virtually indestructible. There are carrying handles on both the side and top, plus the usual (narrow for Antler cases) telescoping handle. As a spinner case, this will be just as easy to pull as to push – depending on the floor type.
There is a combination lock, which comes with a TSA over ride.
Inside you get 4 zipped pockets. One is a whole side of the case. This has two extra pockets on it. One is meshed and the other covered. The 4th picket is on the edge of the opposite (deeper) side of the case. This is a long and narrow pocket – ideal for those fiddly smaller items. That deep compartment has elasticated straps which lock in the middle to keep everything in place.
Feedback: What Previous Buyers Said About the Antler Clifton Hard Shell Spinners?
Only a limited amount of feedback so far for these specific cases. It will come as no surprise for anyone who has owned an Antler case before that the feedback is all positive. The style gets specific mentions for this one. One comment mentioned that the case was sturdy, though they had yet to go on holiday with it to give it a proper test.
These are bound to be popular additions to the Antler range. Make sure you check out the latest feedback before you buy one. If there is no additional feedback specifically for the Clifton cases, you can get a good general impression of Antler cases from their other lines.
Wrapping Up: How Do the Stylish Antler Clifton Cases Compare?

These cases have a ‘virtually indestructible’ shell, a choice of colours and sizes and some small touches which help them stand out. There are 4 zipped pockets inside the lined interior, a combo lock and spinner wheels.
