LEVEL 8 LUGGAGE REVIEW:
PRO CARRY-ON & VOYAGEUR CHECK-IN CASES
Level 8 Pro Carry-On With Laptop Pocket 20″
The Pro Carry-On with Laptop Pocket 20″ is a hard-shell case that comes in three colours: black, navy and grey. I opted for the navy case as I always go for black cases and wanted a change. Plus the navy case looked really slick and neat!
Not only does the Pro-Carry On look great, it is also very functional and practical. Other features of the Pro-Carry-On are that it is lightweight, durable, water-resistant, has ultra quiet spinner wheels, an external laptop compartment and a TSA approved lock.
Let’s take a look at all of the features of the Level 8 Pro Carry-On in detail:
External Laptop Compartment
My favourite feature of the Pro Carry-On is the unique laptop pocket at the front that conveniently pops open without a zip.
This feature is literally what I have always been looking for in a carry-on case. To finally find a carry-on with a dedicated separate external space for my laptop during travelling is just so handy.
This feature is what makes this product really stand out to me and what makes me view this suitcase as an essential travel item. In addition, as the laptop pocket is flush against the case it isn’t obvious, plus it is padded for extra protection which is great.
Even if you aren’t travelling with your laptop, this pocket is really great for storing documents in a convenient and easy to reach part of your case.
I don’t know about you, but I always fill my case to the brim, so it can be a nightmare opening and closing it to get my travel documents or to get separate my electronics when going through airport security, so I love how the laptop pocket gives you a space to store and quickly access your electronics and important things with one simple push.
The laptop compartment can fit a big laptop up to 15.6″! Which of course means you can also easily store A4 documents, magazines or even your tablet and other electronics here too. A velcro strap secures the laptop or documents in place, plus there are also two smaller pockets inside the compartment which is great to store small but handy items such as hard drives or other small electrical products.
Ultra-Quiet Spinner Wheels
The ultra-quiet spinner wheels was also something that was important to me. The wheels of Level 8 cases are noticeably quieter than any other brands I have used – I was definitely impressed!
I find having quieter wheels is really useful when you do not want to attract attention – for example when walking along a quiet street, or going across a marble floor in a hotel lobby.
The wheels spin in a 360 degrees motion which makes the case very easy to manoeuvre, even when wheeling it along cobblestone streets!
The wheels are also very durable, and even after a long weekend around Amsterdam the wheels showed minimal abrasion.
Built-In USB Port
The built-in USB port can literally be a life saver as it allows you to quickly charge your devices.
Plus there is a separate compartment for your power bank, which enables easy access and a quick connection to your electronic devices which is great!
The hard-shell casing of the Pro Carry-On is made by aerospace-grade Bayer Makrolon® hard-shell material. This material is very lightweight yet extremely durable and robust.
In addition, the hard case provides extra protection for your valuable items, and both the outer and inner materials are sturdy and of a really high quality.
The Pro Carry-On is very lightweight – especially for a hard shell suitcase! It weighs just 9.3 lbs in total, which means more weight for your belongings, hurray!
The adjustable telescopic handle is also made from a lightweight aluminium material.
TSA Approved Combination Lock
The dimensions for the Pro Carry-On are 14.5″ length, 9.3″ width and 21.6″ height. It complies with the size requirements of most major airlines for cabin baggage (although it’s always recommended to double check the size your airline states beforehand!), plus it fits into most airplane overhead stowage compartments.
Priced at $209.99, the Pro Carry-On costs slightly more than an average carry-on, but you are paying for the quality of the product.
If you don’t want to make the full payment upfront you can opt for split payment and pay in 4 interest-free installments if that is easier.
Is the Pro Carry-On Worth It?
The Pro Carry-On is a very durable, high-quality and stylish hard-shell cabin sized piece of luggage, plus it comes with the unique external laptop pocket that is just so useful and convenient.
It is one of Level 8’s most popular items of luggage and it is easy to see why! It is smart, versatile and suitable for most types of travellers and I would definitely recommend it.

Hard Shell Case
All Level 8 cases are hard shell, which offers more protection for your valuable and breakable items – whether it’s a fragile ceramic or your favourite bottle of liquor!
Hard-shell cases are a lot more water resistant than softer cases, therefore offering your items a lot more protection against water damage.
I’ve been caught out a couple of times in monsoon rains with soft luggage where all my clothes inside got wet, which was just a nightmare! At least this problem is eliminated with hard-shell luggage.
Easy To Clean
Hard shell cases are also easier to clean than soft luggage – you can just wipe them down with a cloth. Simple!
