Whether you travel for business or pleasure, a suitcase or two is
an important thing to have. However, buying a suitcase is not as easy as
it looks at first. To ensure you walk away with a good deal, a suitcase
that will last for years, and to get a good value for your money, there
are a number of factors you want to consider when buying a suitcase,
whether it's a name brand like Hartmann or Samsonite suitcases, or a
cheap suitcase you find on sale. What are these factors?1 -
Suitcase SizeWhen it comes to suitcase size, you want to
consider whether you are using this suitcase as carry-on bag or checked
luggage. This will have a huge impact on your size. A good approach to
ensure you choose the best sized suitcase is to check the online website
of the airline you frequently fly; they should have their carry-on and
checked luggage limitations listed. You might want to buy a little on
the small side of what the airlines allow, they seem to be cracking down
more and more on luggage allowances these days.2 - Luggage
PortabilityNot only is it important to get a good-sized
suitcase to ensure you don't have to check your carry-on bag or pay an
extra fee due to an oversized bag, size is important to portability
too. Of course, you want a suitcase that is easy to lift. However,
Samsonite suitcases and other popular brands come with wheels and a
pull-along handle. While you may be unable to wheel your suitcase down
an airplane aisle, extra portability should come in handy when walking
around the airport.3 - Accessibility Of Packed ItemsWhen
buying a suitcase, accessibility should be an important factor to
consider. Whether it be in your hotel or reaching up into the luggage
compartment, it should be easy to find what you need. A million small
compartments sounds nice at first, but this tends to make it harder to
quickly get items from your suitcase and is more tedious to pack and
unpack. Small suitcases designed as carry-on luggage are more accessible
and this is important since you may need to grab something from your
bag on the airplane. With an easy-to-access bag, you can just open the
compartment, unzip, and grab what you need.4 - Durability -
Will Your Suitcase Last?Durability is a must when buying a
suitcase. Whether it be a carry-on suitcase or a checked suitcase, they
go through a lot of abuse. Your luggage is worthless if it can't stand
up to a few dings or tosses from airport luggage handlers. You want
wheels that can handle bumpy paths and the weather. You want zippers
that open with ease for hundreds of zips and unzips. Some of the most
well-known brands, such as Samsonite suitcases, have solid warranties,
typically up to 10 years, that backs up their durability luggage claims.5
- Cost Of The Suitcase - Is Cheap Luggage Worth It?Here is
the thing about costs: we as consumers want to save money, but you
should never sacrifice quality for price. Remember, a strong and durable
suitcase is a better investment for years of use than one that is
cheap, but will deteriorate quickly over time. Not only does a nice
suitcase improve the overall travel experience, but you get a better
value for your money in the long run. Find a good brand, such as
TravelPro, Hartmann, or Samsonite suitcases. Then compare prices on
those to find the best price on high-quality items. A cheap suitcase may
seem like a good deal now, but not when you need to buy a replacement
more quickly than you had anticipated.

Your luggage is an investment. Sometimes cheap is good...
basically what you're looking for is the lowest price available on a
high quality, well made suitcase.At our website, we've put
together a selection of suitcases from a variety of sources so you can
compare what you're getting and how much you're going to have to spend.
