Simply Her (Singapore) - - Smartshopper -

We scoured the stores and found th­ese suit­cases for ev­ery type of hol­i­day­goer.

FOR THE BUSINESS TRAV­ELLER Fur­nished with a quick-ac­cess “door” on the front is the 22-inch Vic­tori­nox Spec­tra 2.0 Dual-ac­cess Global Car­ryon ($563, from Ise­tan Scotts, Robin­sons Or­chard, Tangs Or­chard, The Planet Trav­eller and Takashimaya D.S.). The door makes it con­ve­nient to take out and stow away fre­quently reached-for items, with­out hav­ing to open the en­tire carry-on. The ac­cess panel holds up to a 15.6-inch lap­top, so you can work on the plane or train if you have to.

FOR THE NEAT FREAK If you love com­part­men­tal­is­ing your suit­case, the re­mov­able mesh di­vider in the Zero Hal­libur­ton Zero Air II (from $589, avail­able in sizes of 20-28 inches, from The Planet Trav­eller) will come in use­ful – it has a zip­pered sheath for slot­ting in mis­cel­la­neous items and pre­vent­ing them from fall­ing out. The case opens like a book, so the di­vider can sep­a­rate your clothes from your kids’ if you’re pack­ing for them too.

FOR THOSE ON A WEEK­END ES­CAPE Don’t fuss with heavy-duty suit­cases for that short 2D/1N get­away – a light­weight 2.2kg, 22-inch carry-on, Tumi Voyageur Su­per Leger In­ter­na­tional Wheeled Satchel ($665, from Tumi), will suf­fice. Carry it as a tote us­ing the ver­sa­tile sling strap, or pull it along on its two wheels by the re­tractable han­dle. The soft ny­lon ma­te­rial should give you ex­tra space for your week­end shop­ping.
