Canada hard side luggage review 4

If you’re jetting off sometime soon, here’s a luggage set that’ll help you show your Canadian pride. The Jetstream Canada Collection is a 2-piece hard side luggage set with great construction and cute, Canadian flair.

What comes in the box of the Jetstream 2-piece luggage set?

This luggage set comes with two pieces: A large 26″ hard side luggage piece and a carry-on sized 18″ luggage piece. (As always, we recommend that you check with your airline carrier before every flight. Every carrier sets its own carry-on guidelines, so not all pieces may be allowed in the cabin of all carriers!)

Both of these luggage pieces come with perforated tags sewn into the zipper line. For a seamless look, make sure to get under the rubber guard to remove all traces of the tags.

Is this set available in different finishes?

Yes. This set is also available in Black Chevron. Reviewed here is the Rose Gold finish.

However, the different colour isn’t the only difference in finishes to look out for. There’s another small detail available in this Jetstream set: The difference between the brand’s regular line and their Canada Collection. It’s easy to miss if you aren’t looking for it, but heartwarming when you catch it.

The Jetstream Rose Gold set features a horizontal Jetstream logo. The Jetstream Rose Gold Canada Collection set, on the other hand, features a maple leaf on a crest. There’s no difference in the overall construction of this line of luggage, so opt for the Canada Collection if you want the little maple leaf! The Canada Collection is priced the same as the set with Jetstream branding, but is its own variation. So, check both versions to find the best price. They may go on sale separately.

My experience with the Jetstream Canada Collection 2-piece luggage set

The Jetstream Canada Collection from Travelway is quite nice! Right off the bat, I noticed this set’s durable construction and beautiful, smooth wheels. Both of these pieces felt like they were gliding over my floors, either when packed full or when closed and empty. One quality that can be tricky for luggage wheels is that they’ll glide nicely on either two wheels or on four, but that isn’t an issue with this set: These feel equally smooth no matter how you’re pushing or pulling them. All of the wheels are single 360 degree spinner wheels.

These pieces feel solidly constructed and durable, with smooth zippers and sturdy handles. While they’re sold as “lightweight ABS suitcases,” they’re neither too heavy nor too light for my taste. The 20″ is 5.6 lbs while the 26″ is 8.05 lbs. The ABS construction used here is thick and hearty, offering a lot of protection without excess weight. It has microtexturing that will help conceal scratches and bumps. With details that are sunken instead of raised, the silhouette of the Jetstream Canada Collection is unlikely to snag on luggage carousels or other suitcases.

One thing that I’d keep in mind about this hard side luggage set is that these pieces are tapered. They are ever-so-slightly shallower and narrower at the top. It gives them a unique look, but does mean that you lose out a bit on interior space. Not all Jetstream luggage pieces do this, so make sure to look at the rest of the line if you want to maximize the size of your luggage pieces.

My favourite things about this luggage set

The wheels are definitely a big part of why I love this 2-piece hard side Jetstream Canada Collection set. However, they’re far from the only thing I love.

I’m also a big fan of the durable exterior, roomy interiors, and multiple compartments. When you’re packing for a trip, organization is everything. Having multiple compartments, like the zippered mesh half and elasticized half in the carry-on, is immensely helpful in keeping everything in its place. I’d definitely add a luggage organizer to this set, but I appreciate the side pocket as well. (I’m not sure what most people keep in there: Passports? Charging cables? Shampoo? Personally, I always put my socks in there—I hate having to rummage around for them when I’m trying to rush out the door and make it to a museum or a meeting.)

The top and side handles on the Canada Collection are also stellar, with soft grips and sturdy springs. Similarly, the telescoping handle is well-constructed. The handle on the 26″ piece locks once and the handle on the carry-on locks in two positions.

Attention to detail

When I unzipped these luggage pieces for the first time, I was very pleasantly surprised to find that the discreet Canadian branding doesn’t stop with the shield. The interiors of these suitcases are also lined with maple leaves and red maple leaves adorn the zipper pulls of this set. On the telescoping handle, you will also find Canadian details.

While small, these details give me confidence in the build quality of this 2-piece luggage set. Each customization of a piece of luggage costs the company money to add to the production line. So, multiple customizations can be a good indicator of a high production value or a high build quality. If a brand is willing to spend the extra money to add details purely for user enjoyment—details that aren’t functional and don’t make the brand any extra money—that shows me that they may be more likely to spend a little extra on things like materials and design, too.

A common way that you see this in luggage brands is in the products’ interiors. Budget brands will make all of their luggage pieces identical inside to maximize profits, while higher-quality brands will use different pockets, zippers, and linings throughout their product line. It costs them a little more money in most cases, but offers a more luxurious experience for the user.

If you’re browsing through Best Buy’s luggage section, try to keep that in mind to find a set that will offer a more custom experience!

In conclusion

This is all to say that, well, I really enjoyed using this hard side luggage set. I think it’s a stellar luggage set offered at a great price, and the Canadian twist on these products is a nice touch. I haven’t read anywhere that Jetstream is a Canadian brand—I think they’re just producing these for Canadian travellers to enjoy—but either way, this is a great 2-piece hard side luggage set for both domestic and international travel.

  1. I am most excited abiut the 4 multi directional wheels, thats exactly what im looking for. Love the design as well, lots of room and looks like it will keep my belongs safe and organized, which is very important to me.

  2. Where do I start? Love the very pretty colour, the maple leaves, the lining, the smooth spinner wheels, the many compartments and last but not least it’s lightweight.
    A nice luggage set to take to the friendly, down to earth East coast of Canada.

  3. I love the Maple Leaf detail on the luggages. Also I love that it smoothly glides with either 2 or 4 wheels, makes movement a lot easier.

  4. I absolutely love that the suitcases have multiple compartments because it makes it so much more convenient and efficient when packing and using the suitcase upon arrival at whatever destination.

  5. The 360-degree spinner wheels and micro-textured body of the suitcase are exceptional features that ensure your travels are completely stress-free!

  6. I love the Canadian detailing on this luggage and would love to flaunt it on a trip to BC! Also the colour! Yes please!

  7. I appreciate the ABS construction of these, which provides excellent strength, as well as their lightweight design.

  8. The 360 degree spinner wheels and the microtexturing on the suitcase body are amazing features that makes your travel absolutely stress-free!

  9. J’aime beaucoup les roues tournantes à 360 degrés ainsi que la coque dure. En plus, c’est Jetstream Canada qui est très bien.

  10. I love that these suitcases feature 360° spinner wheels that roll effortlessly on either two or all four wheels, making it a breeze to navigate through the airport and hotel.

  11. I absolutely Love the stunning Rose Gold Colour. I also like the inner straps and awesome storage space. I am a serious packer when I go away, I would rather have too much than not enough. I feel that this luggage set would really support my travel needs. I am also in love with the middle pocket, it is a great place to pack medications and things that you need quick access to.

  12. There are so many things that I love about the jet stream luggage set made in Canada. The things I like the most is that it is a two-piece set one is 26 in and one is 18 in and both pieces of luggage have four wheels which swivel which would make pulling or pushing it very easy. This set is also a hard case with different colors and finishes that are tapered. Both pieces also have handles to wheel by themselves or to be stacked and wheeled which is very convenient. This set appears to be very lightweight and has a very unique look to it as well.

  13. One of the best things I like is that the bag is equipped with 360’ wheels so it makes it easy to carry it as well as these luggages are lightweight with many different compartments to pack toiletries and clothes easily. I always tend to forget where did i kept my stuffs in the bag but this will make it very easy and systematic to pack and get the specific things when needed and not just remove everything from the bag in search of 1 things 🙂

  14. There are two things that really stand out for me, I like that the shell is hard and sturdy and that the wheels work well using 2 or all 4 wheels. The rose gold is just beautiful as well!

  15. I love the hard shell and swivel wheels. As well the rose gold colour is so pretty. Much better than the Samsonite luggage I received years ago where the handle almost ripped off during the first trip I took with it!

  16. The aesthetics of this luggage set are appealing. Based on the review it has a durable construction and supports smooth wheels. These features along with a manageable weight make this luggage set desirable.
