The Right Luggage for You: Soft Side or Hard Side?

There are many factors to consider when choosing the right luggage for you, and whether to go for a hard-side or soft-side case. We’ve broken down some of the things you should consider to help you find your perfect luggage!


Weight:

Hard-side cases tend to be heavier, although many are now made with high-tech plastics such as ABS and polycarbonate, which are lightweight and durable. We’d recommend the Samsonite cases which are so light! Soft-side cases are generally lighter when empty, and they provide more flexibility which can allow you to take more personal belongings with you.


Protection:

Optimum protection still lies strongly with hard-side cases, and many have excellent anti-shock resistance. However, those who prefer soft-side cases can still get good strength and protection; thanks to new technology and superior engineering, flexible material can even be made to be almost as resistant as bullet-proof vests! Take the Kevlar luggage for example, which is leading the way in redefining durability and versatility in luggage - a serious road-warrior!


Practicality:

Soft-side cases generally have a handy front pocket which is such a useful compartment. The cases are usually expandable too for those with a lot of baggage! It maximises the space and you can actually cram a lot inside. Our Tumi luggage are perfect for combining flawless functionality with ingenuity.


Size:

Cabin, medium or large is the question! It all depends on how much you need to take with you, the duration of your stay, and don’t forget to also check your airline sizing standards. All airlines will differ, so make sure to check out our handy airline guide for cabin cases!


Style:

Last but not least, choose the style of suitcase that suits you. We have a range of different styles, brands, colours and patterns to suit all tastes, and even have limited editions for those looking for something that stands out! We love our Ted Baker luggage which feature bright colours, floral prints and an eclectic style, whilst also giving you many options between hard-side or soft-side cases.
