Why buy leather luggage when there are so many new materials seeing the light of day? Isn’t leather old fashioned and out of date?
If you think that, we strongly advise you to think again. There are several reasons that leather is an outstanding choice of material when you’re looking for a new bag or luggage. Or why not a tablet case or a wallet?
We here at Travel Gear have to admit that we have lived in leather-related ignorance. There is so much to know about this material that we didn’t have a clue about. Now we do, and we want to share this knowledge with you. Let’s go!
While backpacking becomes a more and more common type of travelling, most of us need more than just a backpack to contain all of our travelling needs. Or, we don’t care to carry all of our stuff on our backs. A good travel luggage is a must to get the best travelling experience. But the current traveller’s tribe is divided into two factions: the softsiders and the hardsiders (Okay, I made the terms up!). Nevertheless, choosing between softside and hardside travel luggage is a never ending dilemma among travellers. Both have upsides and downsides, and it’s up to you to choose which one fits your needs best.
If you’re torn between the two sides, you need to know them well before you can choose one of the two. While the name seems to tell you all, they have deeper personalities behind those pretty cases. Let’s have a look!Read more
Travellers around the world most likely agree that luggage rules and restrictions often are confusing as well as frustrating. This is especially true for those who often use different airlines to go places.

To add to the problem, the airlines can change the rules to their heart’s content the way that they see fit. And that without prior notice.
But why do airlines put the rules up in the first place? What are the factors that will determine the luggage limitations? Let’s dig a little deeper!Read more
Does it really matter how you pack your stuff into your suitcase or carry-on? There’s still that much of space each item occupies, right?
WRONG! The way you pack can mean the difference between using both a checked bag and a carry-on, or just using a carry-on. Or perhaps, if you’re travelling with a travel buddy, using one checked bag for the two of you instead of one each. We’re not kidding![toc]
