While this bag doesn't win the lightweight carry-on category, it's pretty close. The Chatillon offers a larger body dimension, so you could pack a bit more than in a 19" bag. And, there's a handy removable pouch you can use for last minute items, small items you want access to without opening the bag, or your computer charger and other electronic accessories. The DuraTec™ material helps to keep the bag as lightweight as possible while still being scratch- and water-resistant.
This Delsey bag is very lightweight, but it is sturdy enough to stand up to the rigors of travel. It uses the same high-quality components as other lightweight Delsey bags. The interior is fully lined, and includes webbing straps and two zippered compartments to keep the contents from shifting.
The Chatillon 21"expands up to 2" by using the expansion zippered pocket feature. If you're traveling by air, you'd need to consider that the expansion may impact your ability to use the bag as a carry-on. However, if you're driving home with more than you had when you left, you're in luck.
The square shape of the corners allows the bag to hold more than a round-edged bag. Corner protectors are used to minimize stress at critical points.
If you're looking for a lightweight and flexible piece of luggage, the Chatillon just may be what you need.
