The TravelPro Maxlite 4 has won our Best Buy award, bringing above-average performance at a bargain basement price. Going head-to-head with some of our other candidates, the Maxlite didn't perform as a top-tier candidate. However, easy-gliding spinner wheels, the convenience of an outer pocket, lightweight form, and smart refinements to standard features made this low price option excel when it comes to value.
As compared to other similarly scoring competitors, like the Osprey Sojourn and Samsonite Omni PC, the Maxlite provides a more evenly distributed performance across all categories at a fraction of the price. The Maxlite isn't perfect, but for the occasional traveler, it checks all the boxes with relative ease.
