Hardside vs softside
Spinners can be hardside or softside.
Soft baggages have exterior pockets for documents and smaller objects, while hardside luggage only has a main compartiment in the interior.

Choose one or another depends entirely on personal preferences. If you feel you're always close to reaching weight restriction, softside may be the solution for you, because it's lighter and allows to save a couple of pounds.
