The Good: Winfield 2 is one of the best looking suitcases on the market. Aside from its aesthetics, it offers additional functionality thanks to its ability to expand and the fact that it sits comfortably near the upper limits of accepted luggage size. Decent price.
The Bad: The exterior hard-body is easily damaged, and while it won't affect your belongings inside, it really ruins the appearance of this suitcase. The build quality of the handle is sub par making it easy to break it if the suitcase is packed full.
The Verdict: It's attractive, functional, and reasonably priced, but the build quality definitely leaves a lot to be desired. If you travel a lot, Winfield 2 may not be the best option as it will probably quickly become scratched and damaged from all the airport handling. It is definitely more suited for casual travelers.
Samsonite Winfield 2 is probably one of the best looking suitcases on the market currently. It sports a stylish design that is subtle, yet very attractive. Winfield 2 also offers some interesting features such as the ability to expand, allowing you to pack more clothes in your suitcase without having to force it shut. Its dimensions are just large enough to fit under every airline's criteria when it comes luggage size, without entering the "oversized luggage" category.
The exterior design of Winfield 2 is quite modern. From a purely aesthetic point of view, it is one of the best looking designs on the market. Winfield 2 comes in several color schemes that all sport a brushed-metal texture. The hard-body shell is made of 100% Polycarbonate and is quite durable, although the finish is very easy to damage. If you're not careful, your Winfield 2 can end up covered in scratches. Winfield 2 uses oversized zippers as a closing mechanism, and it also features an expanding zipper that can add several inches of space inside.
This suitcase comes with a side mounted TSA-approved combination lock, that is integrated into the body. The handle leaves a lot to be desired as it doesn't seem adequate for a suitcase of this size. It feels somewhat cheap and instances of it breaking are not unheard of. Four sets of wheels are well made, and they allow Winfield 2 to glide smoothly.
The interior is divided into two storage compartments lined with nylon. One half uses a set of hold-down straps to secure the your belonging,s while the other sports a mesh membrane that has several smaller pockets where you can pack accessories. It's a fairly simple interior design that we are already used to seeing.

While it's a very attractive suitcase, the build quality of Winfield 2 is definitely not what you'd expect from a company such as Samsonite. The exterior is easily scratched and damaged, and the handle isn't the best choice for the suitcase of this size. This means that you definitely need to be extra careful when handling this suitcase. If you can get over these flaws, Winfield 2 is a good choice for the price.
