This is the newest hard shell suitcase offering from the Samsonite brand. The Fortifi is another great safe suitcase from our friends at Samsonite. This suitcase just increases our love of the Samsonite brand. Their consistently updated designs of safe suitcases are very impressive and more luggage manufactures should pay attention to what they are doing.

The Samsonite Fortifi is the next in a long line of security-minded suitcases. The exterior shells are made from polycarbonate that has been corrugated and shaped into an attractive pattern that provides extra strength and rigidity to the sides. These shells also employ a rubber gasket that provides superior protection against rain, snow and dirt entering the locked case - keeping your clothes clean and dry.

Why do we like this suitcase so much? The Fortifi is a good looking, light weight and very secure piece of luggage. In fact, this case is a good two pounds lighter than similar sized suitcases in the brand. (So you can pack more stuff in it before you are over-weight) Like most Samsonite hard shell suitcases, the Fortifi satisfies all of our security requirements. As stated earlier, the hard side shell is a must for any truly safe suitcase.

The unique two-point closing system is an unusual departure for a Samsonite suitcase in that the side latches are composed completely of metal and mounted on the front of the case. (similar to the old American Tourister style) These are traditionally made from plastic and located on the sides of the case with a third locking latch in the front. At the same time, the all-metal recessed TSA compliant locks and latches are indented and mounted flush with the aluminum frame. All things combined, this closing mechanism is very robust and provides excellent protect from thieves and tampering in general.

Overall, this case is very similar to the Samsonite Cruisair and the Samsonite Tru-Frame lines in that they all employ a metal frame and feature the use of more metal components.

This case packs many of the features of a more expensive brand like its fully lined interior, metal components and enhanced locking mechanism. The interior lining system contains multiple zippered pockets (one is a mesh pocket) for keeping your smaller item organized and in sight.

What makes the Samsonite Fortifi a Safe Suitcase?

The Samsonite Fortifi suitcase has the three main features that we look for in a really safe suitcase. 1) Hard side shells; 2) No zippers (uses clamps/latches) and 3) Tongue and groove frame surround. These features are key to keeping your belongings safe. The two-point latching system ensures that the case stays closed even under force. The tongue-and-groove with locking latch system is far superior to zippers for keeping "bad guys" out of your suitcase. Another great security feature are the dual riveted hinges. They are very strong and highly tamper-resistant. You can feel very secure that once you check this bag in, the contents are safe from damage, thieves and smugglers.
