What you get for your money.
The Salento I have is the 72 cm one and is the largest in the Salento range. There is also a cabin bag and medium sized bag. The bag measurers 72x44x30 cm and has 68 litres capacity. The bag is quite light weighing just 3 kg before you pack. It is made of strong 600 denier fabric. The base and back panel are reinforced adding strength. The case I have is dark grey but I see that the latest colours on offer are blue or olive. The colour I have doesn’t show the dirt although it doesn’t stand out well on the baggage carousel so I tie a coloured ribbon around the handle so I can spot my bag quickly!
On the outside of the bag there is one full length pocket on the opening flap and another small pocket at the bottom of the bag. Inside the bag is one large compartment with a full length pocket on the inside of the flap. There are also two small pockets, idea for packing small items you need to locate. The bag has a full length zip so is easy to open. There are two nylon clip straps at the side of the bag allowing you to pull them tight reducing the capacity of the bag. They also give extra security.My opinion.
The full length outside pocket is great for storing books and magazines so I can access them on a bus or train without having to open the main bag. I keep a pack of face wipes and comb in the smaller outside pocket.I prefer a soft fabric bag as it tends to take up less room than a hard sided case; a consideration if you are hiring a car and may need to squash your bags into a small boot space! The bag is very easy to wheel along and also very stable even when packed full. The side straps will extend to allow you to squash in a surprising amount! The handle is very strong and retracts easily when not in use. I like the zipped flat that covers and protects it from over zealous baggage handlers!
Overall this is a really well made and well designed bag that I hope will see many years of service. Writing this review has started me thinking about my summer travel plans!
