We can’t think of travel without good suitcases to pack our clothes and essentials in.
The suitcase must be durable enough to endure the treatment baggage handlers mete out, and must also be spacious enough to hold everything we need to carry.
Dividers inside, pockets for documents or toiletries, external pockets for easy access to things one needs while travelling, castors for easy movement, tough handles, a reliable locking system, and of course overall good looks are some of the important features to look for in a good suitcase.
There’s no lack of choice with so many brands available today and there’s no doubt that the best suitcase brands in the world are also easily available in India.
But with plenty of choice comes a good deal of indecision and confusion!
