The Chosen Few: Suitcases

scases.png

With summer imminent, it’s likely you’ve already booked a foreign getaway. But ahead of your travels, take note: there’s a thin line between looking like a man who knows what he’s doing, and a man who doesn’t.

That line? A suitcase, a lifestyle statement on wheels, which, depending on the weight, can be the difference between a smooth airport-to-hotel experience and a shocker.

David Miller, director of Harrods Home and a frequent flyer, tells us the best super light-weight luggage guardians to invest in.

(LEFT) SAMSONITE Firelite collection from Samsonite, £235: “Samsonite has collaborated with Propex to take advantage of their super-lightweight Curv® material. The cabin size version weighs less than a large bottle of water.”

(SECOND FROM LEFT) RIMOWA Salsa Air Cabin Multiwheel, £375: “Brand new, super-light multiwheel case with a polycarbonate casing, lightweight inner lining, ergonomic handles and a security lock.”

(SECOND FROM RIGHT) TUMI Tegra-Lite International Carry On, £595: “Made from a revolutionary new fabric used for body armour and in NFL player's shoulder pads. Plus a patented X-Brace 45 handle adds rigidity.”

(RIGHT) HARTMANN PC4 Collection, £315: “The PC4 is named after state-of-the-art polycarbonate technology. It has four layers of polycarbon to withstand high levels of impact.”

For more lists of items that every well-rounded man must own, read this week’s issue of ShortList to pore over our new Chosen Few section, in which we’ll be speaking to experts in the hope of enhancing your material wealth.
