What sizes do suitcases come in?
Whether you need a very large suitcase as you are relocating overseas, a medium-sized case for a road trip, or a small piece of cabin luggage for a short business trip, luggage.co.nz stocks suitcases in a range of sizes. From the sturdy Herschel Trade 86cm hardside checked suitcase (90L) with four double spinning wheels to the Samsonite Bleisure 49cm upright underseater softside USB carry-on (26L), at luggage.co.nz we have a suitcase to suit everyone.
So, how do you decide what size suitcase you need? One factor to consider is whether you want to use it as carry-on or checked baggage if you are travelling by plane. Each airline has different baggage allowances in terms of weight, size, and number of bags you can take with you on the plane, so you’ll need to check with your specific airline before you fly to make sure your carry on luggage fits within the restrictions. Depending on what you need to take with you, some travellers are choosing to take carry-on luggage only if they can. With some airlines, this will mean you will save money, and you’ll also avoid waiting in queues at the baggage claim once you arrive at your destination.
Really large suitcases can be great for fitting in a lot of items, but it can also then be tempting to take more than you need and they can become very heavy when full. Although most large suitcases come with wheels these days, you’ll need to keep in mind how far you are going to have to carry your suitcase throughout your trip, and if you’ll need to travel by car or taxi as if you have several large suitcases negotiating this can be difficult. Whatever size suitcase you need, you’ll find a wide selection at luggage.co.nz. And if you can’t decide, why not buy a three-piece matching luggage set so you’ll have three different sized suitcases to choose from?
Are hard suitcases better than soft?
Once you’ve decided on what size suitcase you’ll need, the next decision you’ll need to make is whether you want to buy hardside luggage or softside luggage. There are pros and cons of both options, but in the end, it will come down to your personal preference. Hardside suitcases generally provide more protection if you are travelling with fragile items, and although they will usually not be completely waterproof, hardside suitcases are generally easier to keep dry and are more weather resistant. With their hard shell, they can also be easier to wipe clean, and if you are worried about security, hardside suitcases are less likely to be able to be slit open. If you really want to make a statement, hardside suitcases often come in vibrant colours or unique patterns, so it makes them easier to spot at the baggage claim. For example the Explorer Luna-Air 2 luggage set comes in several colours including a vibrant magenta dusty pink or seafoam, or the NZ Luggage Co NZ Flag Collection suitcases featuring the New Zealand flag. And if you really want your bag to stand out on the carousel and be even more protected, you could add a NZ Luggage Co large stretchy spandex luggage cover in a zebra print, that way your bag will be impossible to miss!
With more flexibility, soft suitcases are easier to squeeze into smaller spaces such as overhead compartments, luggage racks, and lockers. And if you buy souvenirs or do other shopping on your trip, many softside suitcases come with an expandable feature so you can create extra room when needed, and they tend to have more pockets and compartments so it makes organisation easier. Many softside suitcases also come with external pockets so it makes it easier to grab things that you’ll need in a hurry, without needing to rummage through your whole suitcase. They also generally take up less room than hard suitcases so they are easier to store. Hardside suitcases usually take up more space when opened too, which can be tricky if you are staying in a small hotel room. At luggage.co.nz we sell a wide range of high-quality hardside suitcases and softside suitcases, so whatever your preference is, you’re sure to find the perfect suitcase to take on your next trip.
