HOW TO CHOOSE A SUITCASE
LOOK AT WEIGHT, SIZE AND STURDINESS
Whether you have a small suitcase that you’re using for carry-on or a large suitcase that you need to check-in, the weight of the case counts towards your baggage allowance. Check the size is what you are after, and make sure the handles are firmly fastened to the body of the case, so they are less likely to break.
WHEELS ARE WHEELY IMPORTANT
The case should roll easily, and not bounce or tip when being pulled. Fourwheel spinner models can be easier to use, but some can be difficult to control when pushed across bumpy terrain, so make sure you take it for a test-drive.
WATERPROOF IS IN THE PUDDING
You can’t control the weather, but you can control whether your case and its valuable content gets wet. Hard cases aren’t necessarily more water-resistant than fabric ones, as water can still get through the lid joint, so ask for waterproof qualities before buying.
