Summary: I’m smitten with the design of the Summerfunk cases from American Tourister. They are not brash, bold, or unique. Instead, they have clean lines, small stylish touches and a way of sitting up on the double wheel set at each corner which somehow just ‘works’. You can get the Summerfunk range in a wide choice of colours. This review is based on the black one. There are carry-on, small checked-in and larger sizes.
A lot of positive feedback for these cases. You can see the different size / colours, zoom in on the details – and check the latest discount (if any!), on this dedicated product page at amazon.co.uk – check it out now!

Design and Key Outside Features
As with all cases, one look at the picture is often enough to know whether you like the overall look My eyes are drawn to the front panel. This has a Y design, with a curved zip and the contrasting orange down arrow at the bottom. Above this is the main front pocket – with has the American Tourister logo.
Most versions sit proud on 4 double wheels – these are marked as the ‘Spinner’ versions. The Upright one has 2 fixed wheels; you pull it behind you instead of beside or in front. The ‘Upright’ has plastic stoppers to keep it standing when you are not moving. The spinner version stands on those sturdy wheels.
The telescoping handle has a metal tone.
A special feature of the carry-on versions is an external USB port – they also have a combo lock with TSA override, which grabs the tops of the zips for security.
