SmarterTravel

Genius Pack Review

Price and Where to Buy Genius Pack: At the time of writing, the Extensive Wheeled Upright was on sale for $278 on GeniusPack.com.

Pros:

  • Large 30″ depth is great for longer trips, or cold weather vacations (like ski getaways) where you have bulky gear
  • Forgiving soft sides can be stuffed to the brim
  • Features a separate laundry compartment that compresses dirty laundry down to a small size (making room for souvenirs on the way home) and zips straight out so you can easily do laundry when you get back
  • Inside front of suitcase has three separate, labeled zipper compartments (and a printed packing list)
  • Smooth gliding recessed wheels make the bag easy to roll along, no matter how heavy it is
  • Soft neoprene handles are easy to pull
  • Comes with a five year warranty
  • Smooth telescoping handle can be zipped away when not in use

Cons:

  • At 10.8 lbs, this is not a lightweight suitcase

How Genius Pack Rates:

      • Usefulness: 10/10. Some trips, you just can’t get away with going carry-on only. For over-packers and extended vacations, the 30″ Extensive Wheeled Upright will hold everything you need.
      • Value: 8/10. If you grab the suitcase on sale, it’s a good deal for a bag of this size.
      • Portability: 8/10. The smooth gliding wheels and telescoping handle make this bag easy to roll wherever you go.
      • Cool Factor: 10/10. The separate compression laundry section is one of the cooler features we’ve seen in a suitcase. The bag also comes in fun colors, like red and purple.

Final Verdict: Packing a lot? The 30″ Extensive Wheeled Upright can handle it, plus has lots of cool features that make it a standout choice.
