Choosing Your Luggage Bag: A Simple Guide
The only thing harder than deciding where to stay or which airline to book a ticket with is deciding which bag to pick. There are simply too many options to choose from.
Luckily for you, we can help you pick the right one for your trip.
If you’ll have to do a lot of walking or if you have a health condition that makes lugging difficult, a rolling suitcase is a must.
Rolling suitcases make it far easier for you to move around, don’t require much effort on your part, and the best part, you can even turn easily.
A small or medium-sized duffel bag can hold a good number of items inside. Some of these bags even have retractable handles.
They fit perfectly in overhead compartments; however, you might find it a little difficult to carry them along on long journeys, and you might end up straining your arms.
The best course of action is to find a place where you can stash your duffel bag and then be on your way.
Bags with Backstraps
If you’re worried about added strain on your arms and shoulders, it’s always a good idea to buy bags that have backstraps. Backpacks are great for this purpose. You can carry your few essentials in them, and since they have backstraps, they’re also easy to carry without too much strain on one particular part of the body.
If you’re a fan of hardshell suitcases, you might want to try some in lightweight materials. Bags made from polycarbonates are surprisingly light for their size. That isn’t to say they’re weak—because they’re as strong as they are light.
Hardshell bags are easier to clean, although you might have difficulty in stuffing them, since they don’t really have a soft exterior. These work best if you’re carrying something that needs extra layers of covering.
