What do I have to look out for in a suitcase?

Whatever type of bag you choose, we recommend you choose a design with zippered pockets and internal compartments for easy packing and unpacking. If you want to lock your bag, make sure the zippers are compatible with small padlocks. Look for a sturdy telescoping handle for easy rolling.

Hard case or soft?

We reviewed both soft and hard suitcases for our roundup – the former are easier to stow and pack and often have handy external pockets, but the latter are sturdier and protect fragile items.

Four wheels are better than two to roll your bag with ease. We recommend choosing a bag in a darker color to avoid scuffs and stains, and while quality materials tend to be heavier than thin bags, check the weight of your new bag – many airlines only allow checked baggage by up to 23kg to weigh, so every extra gram means a gram less for your stuff.

What should I pay?

Rolling luggage is one area where we recommend investing in something of good quality. Very cheap wheeled bags can save a bit at the wrong end and break quickly – if you want something durable that will last many trips, look for a design that costs around the $100 mark.
