- Flower: Bright pastel style flowers drawn in multiple colours and shapes over a black background. This case has contrasting white straps and handles.
- Light Grey: A smart and swish design which will instantly conjure images of the golden age of travel. The white contrasting elements only add to the distinctive looks.
- Light Pink: Instead of being bold, the pink used here is a subtle, pastel shade. This case looks elegant and refined – with the light grey straps fitting perfectly.

Spec: Spinner Wheels and Plenty of Worthwhile Small Details
Spinner wheels are almost mandatory on new luggage. Adding it to a retro designed suitcase combines the best of the old and new. These wheels swivel in all directions. This means the cases are pullable, pushable and can easily swivel in and out of the crowd at bust airports.
You can get telescoping handle, which adjusts to different heights. There are regular carry handles too. These have vintage styles and are at the top and side of the cases. All these cases are lockable via a 3-digit combo lock. This is enough to keep you safe from any casual / opportunistic thefts.
With microfibre leather outside, and a tough polyester lining, the materials are up to date. They have a built-in reinforced board, with hard shell design, which will keep your case from being damaged by the usual wear and tear of being checked in.
Feedback: What Previous Buyers Said About the Unitravel Vintage Suitcases
No surprises to see that the most frequent word in the feedback / comments was ‘style’ or similar. Buyers loved the look of their cases, even the German feedback mentions that the design is ‘appealing’… The build quality was mentioned in several comments too.
On the minus side, someone thought their big case was too small. This makes sense, what this brand calls XL would simply be ‘large’ for other cases. Make sure that you compare the sizes before you buy. A small number of people questioned the solidness. This is a softer material with a hardboard inside to keep it solid – and not like the ABS hard shell cases.
Overall, positive feedback for these cases, with many more happy buyers that those with gripes.
