Pack Light And Carry A Big Passport

When we venture out into the world, we want to tread lightly and carry a big camera. It helps if we pack lightly, and thanks to my purple Atlantic Ultra LITE 3 spinner, a super light (only 7.2 lbs) carry-on size piece of luggage with an extendable handle and wheels, I can…and in style! Read on for some of my helpful packing tips, as well as a sweepstakes for a family trip for four to Orlando, Fl!

Atlantic Luggage has been making family travel easier since 1919 with light, versatile, and affordable luggage, and my new Atlantic Ultra LITE 3 purple carry-on is just so me. It’s sturdy and well made, everything feels so strong, yet it’s so light and manageable, and it packs so much! It’s surprisingly roomy inside considering the compact exterior. Since I’m a practical packer, I know I can pack for a family of four for a five day vacation with it…wanna see?

This piece has several options for carry handles, the wheels spin in 360º direction, and there are even crash bumpers around the corners to protect the water-repellant fabric. The two outer pockets are large and the cover of the main compartment can expand up to two extra inches to accommodate all those extra souvenirs you want to bring back home.

The suitcase dimensions of my 21″ expandable spinner from the Atlantic Ultra LITE 3 collection are 21″ x 14″ x 9″, and it’s also available in black and turquoise (purple or turquoise are both so pretty!). I love it!

Packing Tip #1: Choose neutral separates that are easy to mix and match rather than full individual outfits

I don’t want to drag multiple pieces of luggage around as I go on my adventures…lots of luggage and stuff is the anti-adventure, it’s an albatross, and it slows you down. Packing smart, packing lighter is the perfect way for a family to travel, and the LITE 3 collection is the perfect fit for the traveling family.

Atlantic Luggage has innovative features such as the Link2Go™ system, which allows you to connect multiple pieces of luggage together so you can roll it all along with one hand. It also has 360º 4-Wheel Spinners allows for easy guiding and steering through busy terminals and anywhere you need to maneuver through crowds or tight spaces…with the LITE 3 expandable spinners, your luggage will never be what slows you down.

Packing Tip #2: Pack versatile classics that can cover a variety of activities and even a surprise dinner
