All About Travel Suitcases

Traveling is a part of our daily life these days. Due to demands of business or profession or for some personal reasons, one has to travel frequently. When you leave your home for a few days or a few weeks, you need to pack your clothes and other essential items. Previously, trunk was used to pack and carry luggage but with the passage of time and with the introduction of molded plastic, leather and fiber glass, travel suitcases came into use. A suitcase is easy to carry and keeps your ironed clothes in good shape and free of wrinkles. Because of their easy handling and lightweight, travel suitcases are more preferred by people in comparison to other bags.

Normally, a suitcase is made in horizontal or vertical shape with proper locking system for the safety of your belongings kept inside it. In a few models, especially the large sized ones, wheels are attached to the base of the suitcase to provide easy portability to it. Some suitcases have many pockets with zip affixed to them for keeping toiletries, stationery, important papers etc. Travel suitcases are made with the material which is light in weight and sturdy to bear all the adverse impacts of a journey. Some suitcases have additional compartments on the cover to keep the things which are frequently used in the journey and are not much valuable.

In case of a journey by an airplane, most of the airlines impose restrictions regarding the size of the suitcase that could be carried during a flight. These restrictions vary in case of domestic flights and international flights. Keeping these stipulations in view, nearly all the manufacturers of the suitcases offer products of standard size in the market. However, for other purposes, suitcases of different sizes in a wide range are available in the market. Although suitcases made up of molded plastic and leather are also available, the one made by combination of fiber glass and PVC is most preferred as it is the most durable and resistant to constant wear and tear during the travelling.

Suitcases in various size and colors are available in the market for a flexible range of price and one can choose a suitcase according to his requirement and price affordable by him. Although various types of locally manufactured suitcases are also available but one should always prefer a branded suitcase only as it is durable, safe and long lasting despite being a bit costlier. The most important feature of a suitcase is the lock system and it should be safe and easy to operate smoothly. Further, a suitcase should not be overloaded with clothes or other items and it should not be closed forcibly as it may damage the locks permanently.

Travel suitcases should be properly handled and should never be thrown or dragged in a careless manner as it may cause permanent scratch marks to the outer surface of the suitcase which give it a shabby look.
