The Most Rugged Luggage - Why You Need It
Is there anything more annoying than trying to zip up your bag at the hotel and the zipper breaks? And it can be really stressful as well if you have a plane or train to catch, and not really the time to rush to a store and buy new luggage to put your stuff in. (And how would you ever manage to find out what is the most durable luggage when you have so little time?)
Or what about running through the airport actually CARRYING a heavy bag, because one of the wheels just broke and made it impossible to either pull or push?
Here at Travel Gear Depot we don't want you to have such bad experiences. Thus, we have scrutinized the web and picked out what we believe to be among the most rugged luggage you can find. We have chosen 3 carry-ons and 3 suitcases. Often there is a product line, which means you can find suitcases from the same line as a carry-on we have recommended, and vice versa.
We will start with some general questions about durable luggage, and then dive into the specific product reviews. Enjoy!
