Suitcase brands - what to go for?
- 3 responses so far
The funny thing is, i’ve been overseas three times with the same suitcase, and it was a $40 cheap shop one, and i have never had any problems with it, and i’m planing on taking again with me this year.
I have had sales people tell that it wouldn’t last five minutes and and the stiching would break the wheels would crack and baggage handlers aren’t very carefull. I’ve heard it all. Yet i have seen people pay $200+ for luggage that broke before they even have left the airport.
My only suggeustion stay away from designer brands, they are there for look not quality. Also look at the warranty, airlines also sell luggage, qantus for example has a 10yr warranty on there luggage.
I have an Atlantic suitcase that my friend took when she worked on Survivor China and she liked it so much she bought one of her own! I’ve also used it a hundred times and it’s still in good shape. They usually run $100-200 USD and are well worth it.
