Price History

This graph shows how the price of this product has changed recently.


The Samsonite Paradiver Light is an adaptable backpack AND a two-wheeled suitcase and comes with a two-year limited warranty.

The Samsonite Paradiver backpack collection has stayed true to the original design, but has had practical enhancements, and is packed with new and optimised features and models. It is not only lighter than its predecessor, but it is also available in a section of new sporty colours.


It’s a backpack when you’re adventurous and active. It’s a two-wheel suitcase when you’re being more relaxed.

Now even lighter than before and updated with a new sporty colour palette it is perhaps the perfect luggage upgrade. Nice and light, yet still sturdy enough to protect the contents.

The wheels are soft enough not to be loud on rugged paving. The handles and grips are very comfortable and thanks to the Teflon protection, the exterior fabric of the suitcase is weather-resistant and wipes clean very easily.

There are two stiffening pieces inside which are attached by way of Velcro to make the case more rigid and more stable when standing on its end.

For comfort there’s a padded back panel and the sternum strap that goes across your chest helps to distribute the weight of the backpack and prevents the shoulder straps slipping off.


The striking colours make the Samsonite Paradiver Light easy to spot from a distance on the airport carousel. You’ll impress friends and fellow-travellers when they recognise and appreciate the quality of the Samsonite brand.

Value for Money:

Expensive for lightweight carry on luggage? Maybe.  But Samsonite quality is worth every penny and our Samsonite Paradiver review gives it top marks.
