Having the correct luggage and understanding the general TSA traveling requirements can make or break your trip. Check out below for some tips and requirements that will help you decide the appropriate luggage for your travels:
Frame & Construction
Luggage frames are most commonly made of aluminum, wood and/or durable molded plastic compounds. You want a lightweight inner frame that will ensure strength. When it comes to zippers, look for ones that are reinforced with taped seams to help prevent fraying. Also, double stitching ensures a smooth closure every time. A common misconception is that thick leather is the only material that prevents belongings from getting ruined during travel. However, this can make the suitcase very heavy and hard to move. Nylon is a nice alternative, as it costs less to manufacture and is sturdy enough to effectively protect your possessions.
Most wheeled suitcases contain a telescopic pull handle, allowing you to adjust the height and conceal the handle when not in use. The handle should be sturdy and able to withstand pulling. Finding a suitcase with a locking handle will help keep it from bending due to weight pressure. Non-wheeled bags will most likely have hand and shoulder straps. Take note of the overall construction, as handles are typically connected with screws or rivets. Screws are much easier to replace if broken. You’ll also want to be comfortable with the bag, so make sure its handle has a soft/padded, sturdy grip.
If you don't want to carry your baggage, then rolling luggage is right for you. A common type is known as "spinner" luggage, which has four wheels instead of two. Having four wheels makes your suitcase more stable and easier to move through crowded areas. When looking for spinner luggage, wheels should be placed far apart and should attach deep into the bag's frame.
