As a true traveler, you've probably spent lots of hours painstakingly browsing through luggage just to make sure you're choosing the right one for you, but just in case you're still unsure whether to go for a popular brand or a tried-and-tested pick, here are things you need to keep in mind when shopping for your traveling partner.
You need to be assured that your luggage can withstand being tossed and flung around in airports. But it's not just the body you should worry about; inspect the wheels, handles, and zippers to make sure they are of good quality so they won't give up on you over time.
