Soft-sided large suitcases come in a range of designs and specifications. When choosing a suitcase the ease of moving the case will be a major consideration. Modern cases come with handles and wheels so that carrying the case should not be necessary. The ease of movement of the bag will depend on the design of the wheels. Some bags can only be moved in one direction due to their rigid wheels and others have multidimensional or 360 degree wheels meaning they can move in any direction they are pulled or pushed.
The material that the suitcase is made of is another consideration. Some materials are more durable than others. Most are made from a polyester type material. The weight of the overall suitcase may be a consideration if the bag is being taken on a plane. Extra zips and expandable compartments are another feature to be found in large suitcases, these are useful for adding last minute items as well as increasing the capacity of the bag.
This 125 litre suitcase has expandable compartments which allow it to be compact with the option of extra capacity when needed. The material is lightweight yet strong and the suitcase comes with a 10 year warranty. The wheels are 360 degree rotating which means that the suitcase is not limited to one direction of moving. With internal pockets to help you organise your packing, an internal packing strap helps to keep ironed items in place. A combination lock known as a TSA lock is included. TSA locks have a device which makes them openable by security but allows you to keep your suitcase secure from anyone else. A front pocket allows documents to be stored with easy access.
