Win Your Own Teton Adventurer!
My husband and I are hoping to soon take a weekend trip for ourselves to celebrate our recent 2 year anniversary. Since we live in Central Alabama, we are lucky enough to be very close (within a 1.5 to 3 hour drive), to some of the most beautiful parts of the Appalachian Mountains. Fall is my favorite time to go, with the leaves changing to shades of red, orange and gold, and the cool, crisp, clean mountain air which is perfect for hiking during the day and sitting by the fire at night. Since it will only be a two night trip, we do not need to take a huge amount of luggage, so that’s why I am so excited to have the opportunity to review a new piece of luggage from Teton Sports!
Teton Sports, a Utah-based company, offers products for the outdoors-lover as well as for travel. Everything you need to camp outdoors, plus bags and packs for travel, school and/or work. They make everything from backpacks to book bags. sleeping bags, pillows, tents, cots, accessories and more.
I had the opportunity to review The Adventurer, a rolling travel duffle that has all of the features of a top-of-the line piece of luggage, for a lot less! This large, black and silver suitcase is made from ballistics grade polyester and has a lightweight, durable polyethylene frame which not only helps the bag retain its shape, but also allows it to stand upright on its own without any support. This way you can access your belongings without having to lay it down, lean it or prop it against something. Except for the back side, it is a soft-sided suitcase, not hard, and the material reminds me of a very well-made backpack.
It is the perfect size for both me and my husband, measuring 30” by 16” by 16” with a 9100 cubic inch (150 liter) capacity. It has plenty of multi-size pockets on the outside, a roomy inside, plus front compression straps with no-slip buckles so you can adjust the size of the suitcase. There is an elastic strap with a buckle inside to help secure contents, and a large mesh pocket on the inside of the cover. Another feature I really like is that all of the zippers are no-snag, so they are easy to zip without any material getting caught up in the track, and they zip very smoothly.
There is this great top pocket on the outside which is perfect for quick access to keys, tickets, your phone or whatever else you made need on short notice. And I love the covered ID slot that is built right in on the back side close to the top so I no longer have to worry about ugly and annoying luggage tags that always seem to fall off, plus it protects my privacy! You just push a little button and slide it out of the slot! Very handy!
There are grab handles on four sides which makes getting it out of the car trunk much easier, as well as allowing you to carry it different ways! The two wheels for pulling roll smoothly even on rough surfaces, and the 12” tow handle with comfort grip is fully retractable. Both on the back side and the bottom are high impact rails to help protect contents and the shell when pulling it up stairs, plus there are other reinforced, durable impact points. The corners are also reinforced by fabric overlays and multiple stitching layers to protect against tearing or splitting. This suitcase is so well made, even the buckles on the compression straps are heavy duty and made to withstand 180 degree bending and very hot or cold temperatures like you would find in cargo bays!
I love our new Adventurer! It has all of the bonus features you find with very expensive luggage, it is just as well made and durable (if not more) and costs so much less! I love all of the room, especially the extra pockets on the front! I definitely recommend this to anyone looking for durable, attractive and easy-to-manage luggage.
