For the most serious travelers, a suitcase isn’t just a bag; it’s almost like a house on wheels. And nobody likes a disorganized house.
In the past few years, suitcases have started to become more organized, with pockets on the exterior for laptops, tablets and other items you’ll need to quickly access. Lojel’s suitcase, the Lucid executes this design perfectly with it’s front compartment.
Here are my thoughts after testing the suitcase out for a bit:
- Photogenic red exterior
- Convenient pocket for holding laptop and documents
- Lightweight, weighs 6.3 pounds when empty
- Meets carry-on requirements
- Smooth spinner wheels
- Built in TSA lock
- Smooth zippers
The thing that stands out most when first seeing the Lucid is it’s red exterior. The glossy red exterior is almost akin to that of a Ferrari, except it’s made of polycarbonate.
Made by Hinomoto, the wheels on the Lucid are very smooth – almost as smooth as the Victorinox Spectra’s. Thanks to the wheels, you can effortlessly glide through the airport and easily maneuver the Lucid.
I’ll update this section as I continue testing and using the suitcase.
Interior and Organization:
Located at the front of the Lucid luggage is what is probably the best feature: the easy access front compartment. This compartment can be conveniently opened without having to unzip the main compartment. It has a few padded dividers, perfect for laptops, notebooks, papers and folders or any items you’ll need to grab at a moment’s notice, like your boarding pass or passport.
The quick access compartment is on the small side and can only hold thin rectangular items. I’d be nice if it would hold larger bulkier items like water bottles or jackets.
- Handle is a bit wobbly
- Minor con: The easy access front compartment is quite small, only fits thin rectangular items. The front compartment has a hard backing and doesn’t ‘spill over’ into the main compartment, meaning it won’t to bulky items or some water bottles
- No side carry handle
- On the small side – smaller than most other carry-on suitcases
On the Lojel Lucid suitcase, there’s only one carry handle, located at the top of the bag. Most suitcases have two handles, one at the top and one at the side, making it easier to lift and place in overhead compartments. Likewise with the Victorinox Spectra carry-on which only has one handle, I don’t understand why a side handle was omitted on the Lucid.
This suitcase is lightweight and has smooth spinner wheels making it easy to maneuver. The glossy red exterior makes it a great looking bag and easily identifiable in a baggage claim if needed to be checked in.
In addition to red, you can also find the Lojel Lucid in light blue, black, navy and yellow. Although the Lucid costs retail $299, you can get it for $199 on Amazon.com.
