The hard case, a real plus for traveling

Why this new appetite for hard suitcases? Mainly because these bags have become increasingly affordable and that their benefits are now within reach of everyone. What benefits?

  • The first advantage is protection. The hard case, due to its 100% polycarbonate shell will keep your belongings inside (clothes, but also electronic or other objects) fully protected the many shocks naturally entailed a trip: handling at the airport, skidding to through the highways and byways …
  • Second strong point, security. Often very problematic, flights within closed bags are not uncommon in some destinations: a hard case is a far less attractive prey for a flexible bag cutter shot from a pickpocket in airport.
  • Last argument, maintenance! It is easier to clean a hard case, especially off the countless stickers airports . Spare parts are more available and easy to install yourself.

Thus it is not surprising that the craze around rigid suitcases of frequent travelers in recent years. These have indeed on the rise, and big brands ( Samsonite , Delsey , American Tourister ) are not mistaken , they have all their variations of hard suitcases.

Your questions, our answers!

A rigid suitcase is heavier?

It could be in the past, but recent advances in labor plastics helped drastically reduce the weight of the panniers .

The weight of the panniers of average size (94 L) is below 5 kg: it is even 4.3 kg for Cosmolite , “Samsonite lightest and strongest ever made.” Numerous soft suitcases of the same capacity can weigh up to 50% more!

Thus, making the choice of a hard case quality is also making the choice of lightness: no need to choose between strength and lightness !

What are the available sizes and how does that relate?

Rigid suitcases are generally classified into five families of sizes which also correspond to five slightly different jobs. Stays of times we have chosen are indicative, and obviously depend on your habits and business materials to go!

  • XXL size (over 120 liters): if you go three weeks or more!
  • XL size (90 to 119 L) for travel between two and three weeks!
  • Size L (70 to 89 L): a week to ten days holiday
  • M size (50 to 69 L): three to five days on average
  • Cabin size (less than 49 L) weekend in Rome?Do not save your luggage.

The most popular sizes? The XL size for big trips, and cabin size for weekends away!

Which brands to turn?

You’ll see as you venture into your choice of a hard case, there are many brand identities, with strong differentiating factors between them. In the case of hard suitcases, the marks are distinguished primarily by the quality of their finishing .

  • Samsonite suitcases excellent product: sturdy and lightweight.Its positioning (and its price) premium is justified by a guarantee of at least ten years on all of her bags, and after-sales service (important in the field of luggage) impeccable. All the suitcases Samsonite rigid .
  • French competitor, the Delsey brand has also its own game. Manufacturer of stylish bags and tireless, it appears dignity among the brands Luggage on which it takes in the (small) world of hard suitcases.See all rigid suitcases Delsey .
  • We must also reckon with a number of other brands: the German brandHauptstadtkofferproduct, despite its almost unpronounceable name for the uninitiated, luggage excellent quality / price! It is the same for Italian Roncato , which can also boast excellent design … who says better?
  • You’ll understand if there is indeed a queen in the field of rigid suitcase and many chasers, there is something for everyone and especially all the awards!
  • What has to choose a hard case?
  • Of course, it should be wise in this craze because all rigid suitcases are not equal , and the savvy traveler must be able to quickly choose the rigid suitcase that suits him. This is the reason for Ma Valise-Rigid, who tries to be your guide and rigid suitcase tester.

In addition to the traditional criteria for choosing a suitcase that we obviously expose (size, dimensions, weight, wheels, code or key, etc.), Ma Valise-Rigid will look closely to specific criteria rigid suitcase:

  • Weight: important because it is you who are wearing! In addition, companies impose limits the weight of the filled bags (23kg often), even when they are stored in the hold.
  • Size: indoor and outdoor, it must be both spacious enough for what you have to carry, but also compact enough to be easy to wear
  • Materials and strength: a major criteria to gauge the sustainability over the long term of a suitcase is its matter, where major progress has been made in recent years, but the warranty period
  • Practicality: we will favor bags with four wheels, swiveled 360 ° and a practical interior, straps and zippered mesh, strong zipper and safety lock, etc.

In short, as regards the pouches, travel companions on whom we must rely, we prefer the quality of a hard case to its simple purchase price , for it is only in a suitcase you will save money. We prefer a bag that lasts 300 € a suitcase us ten years to 100 € we must change every two years .
