The Salsa Deluxe includes color accenting on exterior hardware, upgraded padded grip handles and telescoping handle, and interior fabric in an accenting color. The garments and travel items can be accessed separately in the dual-chamber layout of the Rimowa Salsa Deluxe 3 Suiter Multiwheel. The interior includes a garment bag with an integrated shirt pocket for added organization!
Long-time Topas and T.Titanium Rimowa end-user...and LOVE the Salsa Deluxe 3-Suiter...!
PROS: I recently took the 32" 3-Suiter to Tokyo for an eight (8) day trip, where the weather was 35-45 degrees F, with chance of snow and rain. (I took my 21" T.Titanium multi-wheel as carry-on). This piece has ample room for three suits and one sports coat in the first outer section; the internal garment bag works very well. I ended up also packing in an extra full-length overcoat for the trip...no worries. I used the middle section of the case for general clothing, shoes, gloves, computer chargers, shaver, etc. and the second outer section remained empty for transport. I then filled that section with gifts, etc. before the return flight. What I really like is the sturdiness of the Salsa Deluxe shell. All of my gifts were in perfect condition, upon arrival. By the way, Japan is a big market for Rimowa, so...everyone at Narita (NRT) was marveling over this newly designed unit. Imagine a scaled-down sea trunk of yesteryear...on wheels, flexible, sturdy, durable, etc. I love that you can approach from two different sides. [Additional thought: I will be exploring a custom-cut dense foam insert for the middle section, designed to carry 4-6 wine bottles. I think this can be done safely, with this unit. The center would be well protected from shock.]

Price / Value
Great but beware oversize charges
PROS: Love the multi wheel and how easily it rolls.
Plenty of room.
That add a bag feature is great.
I love the way you can strap down the two sides.
CONS: Pricey-I knew when I bought it I might get an oversize charge by the airline but it's the size I wanted so I bought it any way, just be aware you might get some flack from some airlines.
