Suitcase 101: Choosing the Perfect Travel Suitcase

It's important to know that having the right luggage can make or break your trip. Basically, it all boils down to three things: personal preference, frequency of travel, and budget. Here are 7 tips when choosing your next suitcase for travel.

✔️ Be in the KNOW

Every airline has their own luggage size and weight restriction. It’s always best to know your airline’s policies on suitcases so you won’t be surprised with unexpected baggage fees when you reach the airport. The standard size for checked bags is usually 27" x 21" x 14" while for carry-on luggage is usually 22"x 14"x 9". There's no exact universally accepted size so it's still best to check your airline's site to be sure.

✔️ Consider your TRAVEL STYLE

The frequency of the trips you take, perhaps in a year, actually plays a crucial role when choosing your suitcase. If you’re a frequent flyer, you obviously need a suitcase that’s more durable, long-lasting, and high quality. If you’re someone who travels only a few times a year, perhaps only during the holidays, you could invest in a suitcase that’s also sturdy and lasting but perhaps not as pricey. Just make sure it’s durable enough so you won’t have to buy a new one every time you travel.

✔️ Pick your SHELL

Hardshell or soft-shell? That is the question! Let us sum it all up for you: Softside suitcases don’t crack or break easily especially when miscarried by baggage handlers. You can fit more items in them because they're flexible and expandable. They also have extra pockets where you can place the items you'd like to access in a snap.

Hardside suitcases, on the other hand, are more lightweight and durable. These are usually made with polycarbonate so they're unscratchable and sure to protect your items inside.

The bottom line? Softshell suitcases are usually preferred as checked bags while hard shell suitcases for carry-on. But all in all, it’s all up to you! Whatever it is that you find more comfortable to pack your travel essentials in and carry around for travel, go for it. #youdoyou

✔️ EXTRAS are sometimes worth it

The best travel luggage should be something that's very convenient to use. This means a bag that has a lot of useful features like waterproof pockets, more compartments, and such. There are even 'smart' suitcases because they come with built-in battery packs which allows you to charge your devices and a port for headphones so you can charge and listen to music on-the-go.

✔️ SECURITY is 🔑

One must not ignore the security and safety aspect of suitcases when looking to buy one. After all, what they do is protect the travel essentials you have inside. Look for bags with intricate security features such as an internal or external locking system that's TSA-approved so you won't have trouble getting through security checks.

✔️ DURABILITY matters too

Before locking  in on any suitcases, check every feature to make sure it’s durable and made to last. Check the material used in the wheels, handle, covering, pockets, zippers, everything! The best material for hard side luggage would be polycarbonate due to its high degree of hardness and resistance to impact. The most durable for soft shell suitcases, on the other hand, would be one that's made from ballistic nylon, making it resistant from water, wearing, dirt, and abrasions. Also, make sure that the handle is made from aircraft-grade aluminum.

✔️ Let your suitcase (or cover) STAND OUT

Choose a one-of-a-kind suitcase not just for the ‘gram but to keep you from grabbing the wrong bag. Luggage covers with bright colors and playful patterns are great alternatives.
