What size suitcase should you buy when studying abroad, what type of suitcase is durable, long-lasting is the question of many people when preparing to move to a new land. Understanding this, Samsonite will provide detailed instructions on how to choose a quality study abroad suitcase to meet your needs, through the article below.
1. Experience in choosing a study abroad suitcase
Choose a suitcase with 4 wheels that rotate 360 degrees
You should choose a suitcase with 4 single wheels or 4 double wheels, which can rotate 360 degrees to easily move through airports and train stations. With a large amount of luggage for the purpose of studying abroad, you need to choose a wheel that can withstand the maximum weight of the suitcase.
For example, the wheel incorporates the Aero-Trac™ Suspension Wheel System technology of many collections under the Samsonite brand. This technology helps reduce noise, move more smoothly, withstand the weight of luggage well, making your footsteps more comfortable during the trip.
Do not choose a size that is too big
What size suitcase should I buy for studying abroad? Many people think that choosing the largest suitcase will bring more luggage, so they bought a 29-inch, even 31-inch suitcase, and then put it in eight pairs of shoes and countless clothes. Then when at the airport, they couldn’t lift the suitcase off the baggage carousel because it was too bulky and heavy!
Even if you choose a suitcase with 4 double wheels integrated with the aforementioned Aero-Trac™ Suspension Wheel System technology, it will still be difficult for you to push the 30 inch suitcase around if you are not too tall and strong.
Therefore, you should not choose a suitcase size that is too big, but consider your body and health factors. A good suitcase is a suitcase that you can comfortably carry around. Samsonite recommends choosing suitcase sizes from 24inch (61cm) to 28inch (78cm), medium and large sizes.
For added convenience, you should choose a suitcase with a lightweight and durable material such as PP (Polypropylene), Curv or Roxkin™ – a material developed exclusively by Samsonite. And the suitcase has a riser feature to expand the capacity, giving you more space to organize your items.
Should choose plastic suitcase (hard)
There are two types of suitcases based on the material: plastic suitcases (hard) and cloth suitcases (soft). Each type has its own pros and cons. But if you are looking for a suitcase to study abroad, you should consider three aspects: weight, price and safety.
In terms of weight, canvas suitcases are lighter than plastic suitcases because they are made from fabric materials such as polyester and nylon. In terms of price, the cost of a canvas suitcase is also “softer” than a plastic suitcase. In terms of safety, the plastic suitcase is made of hard shell, equipped with a TSA integrated digital lock (some models also have a fingerprint lock, double anti-theft zipper), so the ability to protect the objects inside is at a good level. . While the canvas suitcase is easily torn by the knife, leading to damage, the safety is not high.
Therefore, Samsonite recommends choosing a plastic suitcase to better protect the contents inside and use it longer. Besides, many current plastic suitcases are made of very light materials (such as PP, Curve, Roxkin™), not inferior to canvas suitcases, so you can be assured of the weight.
Choose to buy suitcases from reputable brands
A reputable suitcase brand will ensure the quality and size of suitcases are manufactured according to international standards, suitable for those who need to study abroad. Not only that, you should choose a suitcase from a brand with an international warranty, so that when you study abroad, you can completely bring the warranty in your home country.
