Do I want soft or hard sided luggage?

Suitcases mainly come in two types; soft sided and hard sided. Choose luggage that suits your trip and the way you like to travel.

Soft sided cases


Lightweight, strong and versatile, soft sided cases offer the most packing convenience and they are also easier to fit into tight spaces.


Soft sided cases may provide less protection for fragile items.

What are they made of?

Polyester, nylon or a combination of both.

Hard sided cases


Durable, rugged and surprisingly light, hard sided luggage is best for protecting your belongings when you travel.


Hard sided cases are less flexible than soft sided and tend to offer less exterior pockets and extra space.

What are they made of?

Polypropylene (extremely strong), ABS (Lightweight and durable), polycarbonate (durable, but can be heavier) or aluminium.
