We’re always on the lookout for great travel gear, but we’re also all about finding great deals, as we’d rather spend our money on the actual trip not the travel accessories. Since we travel frequently, it’s important for us to find lightweight luggage that we can take with us wherever we go. We finally find a luggage set that we love, is lightweight and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg! Dependable luggage doesn’t have to cost more than a trip. If we have to fork out a bunch of money, we most likely won’t buy it. IFLY’s motto is “great luggage shouldn’t cost more than your airfare”, and we couldn’t agree more! We’d rather spend our money on a the trip not the luggage itself.
To us, there are a few specific qualities that we look for when buying luggage, dependable and lightweight. There’s never a better time than now to make sure you have a dependable lightweight luggage set, as airlines are getting more and more strict with their luggage weight rules. Although sometimes when luggage is light, the strength of the bag is compromised, but not with the iFly X series luggage set. IFLY really nailed the quality and price. We were lucky to get to try out our newest lightweight luggage set from iFLY on our recent Boston trip. Besides the great price, here are some other great features of the iFLY X-series luggage set that sets them apart from other cabin luggage.
360 degree roller wheels
Truth be told, this is our first luggage with 360 degree wheels (I know, how crazy is that?!) and what a difference it makes! You would think with all the flights we’ve taken, we would have already had a fancy bag with wheels that swivel around, but theres always a first for everything. It’s so easy to change directions or maneuver between people. The 360 degree wheels make it hassle free when walking through airports, train stations, or other busy locations.
USB charging port (only on carry-on and under seat)
This is hands down our favorite feature! With all the travel it can be sometimes hard to find a spot to charge your phone. With the X-series you don’t have to worry about finding an outlet, you can charge your phone, while walking to your gate! It’s genius! No charging necessary, all you need is a power bank to put in the secret compartment in the luggage, and plug it on while your on the go. Super handy!
And the best part of any luggage that you use frequently: lifetime warranty! No matter how many planes, trains or automobiles your luggage rides on, it’s guaranteed to last. If it doesn’t, just replace it! The warranty covers defects in materials and workmanship. When a company believes in their product that much, to have a lifetime warranty, you know it’s good!

- TSA approved lock
- Tie down straps to keep your clothes in pace
- Removable garment suiter
The carry-on (and underseat) luggage also includes:

Read this: Carry On Packing Tips
The X-series Diplomat luggage comes in 3 different sizes: Large, medium and carry on (or under-seat if you’d prefer). The set of three allows for packing for all different occasions. When we travel together, we use the large luggage to both of our stuff, and we have more than enough room for everything. The medium size is perfect if one of us is traveling alone, and the carry on is a great size to take on the plane at any time. We know how hard it can be to decide how big the luggage actually is in real life so here are the size differences:
- Underseater 7 lbs / 3.2 kg Dimensions: 17“ x 16” x 8.5“
- Carry-On 7.7 lbs / 3.5 kg Dimensions: 20“ x 14” x 9.5“
- Medium 10 lbs/ 4.5 kg (24”) Dimensions: 24“ x 16” x 13“
- Large 13.4 lbs / 6.0 kg Dimensions: 28” x 18.25” x 13”
The carry-on dimensions work well with American based airlines, but also budget airlines in Europe and Asia. You won’t have to pay extra or check it under the plane. Pricing is as follows: Large for $149, Medium for $129, Carry-on for $109, or underseater for $89. You can purchase the whole iFLY luggage set (not including the underseater) for $387. If you have a friend who likes to travel, the iFLY luggage is the perfect gift for travel lovers.
Yes we do our best to save money, but if you travel frequently you really need to invest into a quality lightweight luggage that will last through all your travels. The iFLY is such a great piece of luggage, and its super affordable compared to cabin luggage. Having a lightweight luggage that will withstand lots of airline miles and train rides is important for other travelers like ourselves.
