Most of the time, when we travel, we do not bring only one bag. We do not choose whether to bring a heavy, hard-shelled suitcase or to just pack our things in a lightweight carry on luggage. Most of the time, especially when we are traveling with a group on a long trip, we carry all the bags included in our luggage set. Sometimes we even have to bring garment bags with us.
But how would you know which luggage to choose? There are so many luggage sets of every color and style available in the market today but you need not fret over it. Here are some easy guidelines you can consider to help you be able to choose the luggage set that will suit you, your lifestyle, and even your family best.
Of course, when choosing a luggage set you will be using in the years (even decades) to come, you should not compromise your comfort and convenience in using it. If you do not choose a luggage set which is convenient for you, chances are you will not be looking forward to use it. Chances are, once you already have enough money, you would buy yet another luggage.
So how would you know if a luggage set is convenient to use? Well, first of all, take a look at the wheels. All pieces of bags that come in the luggage set should be wheeled (except maybe the toiletry bag and the like). Make sure the wheels encourage motion, not restrict it. Be free to test the bags inside the department store and see which suits you best. You may also have to test the handles, the slings and even look at the number of compartments each bag has.
I’m not saying you look for a weird or eccentric luggage bag. What I am saying is that you may prefer to buy a luggage set that you can easily recognize even from afar. This would be really helpful when you claim your luggage at the airport. Chances are airport attendants will not pay special attention to your luggage and it will be mixed (and matched) along with the luggage of other passengers.
If you choose a luggage set that looks like half of all the luggage in the world, it is very likely that you will have a hard time deciding which one is yours. A common-looking bag is also very prone to be lost. Instead, choose a luggage set that has unique details which makes it distinguishable. You can even go a step further and embellish details on your own. This way, you will know that no other bag looks like yours and you can even practice your creativity.
In a luggage that may contain bags of different covers (the suitcase may be hard shelled but the toiletry bag can have a soft cover), you must make sure that each and every bag is made of materials that are durable enough to last years if not decades of service.
While it is easier to find durable suitcases, today it is also easy to find soft-shelled bags that are made of strong materials. These materials are not only waterproof but also bullet proof which assures you that the things you packed inside is protected. Also, if your budget allows it, it is better if you go for luggage sets manufactured by bigger companies. It’s not being brand name conscious; however, most of the time, these companies use materials of better quality than the smaller companies.
Luggage sets come in a wide variety of price range, so wide I am not even sure how much is the cheapest luggage set and how much the most expensive luggage can be. However, be wise and do not be fooled by the price. I mentioned earlier that it is safer to go with popular brands. Then again, do not force it if you can’t afford it. Also, be smart in choosing which features you need and which features you can do without. You can buy a luggage set under a big company in a lower price without all those added features, which most of the time, are unnecessary.
