Every morning on my way to work I see planes in the sky after they have taken off from O’Hare International Airport. Some days the planes are high up in the clouds, jetting through the air; other days they are making a swift ascent into the unknown, on their way to a far-off location. This morning I followed one plane in particular and started thinking – Where are the passengers traveling? How much did it cost to buy a ticket? And most importantly, how can I go too?
After I bring myself back down to Earth (and the traffic surrounding me), I realize that there is a lot of work that goes into not only reaching a final travel location, but planning the trip and organizing the details. While I don’t have the time or the funds to travel (darn those college loans!), I love to read about different destinations through books and magazines, especially on the topic of traveling on a budget. Some of the greatest articles that I have read give quite simple advice: purchase discount luggage from reputable retailers, such as Irv’s Luggage; look for carry on luggage or luggage sets with a great warranty from brands such as Samsonite Luggage, Travelpro Luggage and Briggs & Riley Luggage; and pack for the elements because anything can happen.
For most consumers, when you finally decide to purchase luggage for your trip, you want to look for a piece or pieces that will hold up to the elements (or airline damage) but won’t break the bank. Two of the most sought-after brands of luggage today are Samsonite and Travelpro. Samsonite is a household name for a reason. Each of their luggage collections offers something unique for the consumer whether you are looking for lightweight luggage, spinner luggage or colorful luggage for a distinctly individual feel.
With their quality luggage craftsmanship, unique shape and moderately priced pieces, the Samsonite xSpace spinner collection offers consumers many great features in one compact piece. With a large packing capacity, durable spinner wheels for easy maneuvering, the SamGuard Protection which resists stains from oil, dirt and water and a Travel Sentry lock to protect all of your belongings, priced at only $132.99, the Samsonite XSpace Spinner 21.5 Expandable is one product that will live up to your high expectations.
Travelpro has also created multiple luggage collections but is best known for their luggage and briefcases for the business traveler. As a frequent traveler, you want luggage that will stand up to your varied schedule and isn’t weighed down by fancy additions. You also want a piece that is checkpoint friendly, making it easier and safer to get your computer through airport security, while still being lightweight and durable. Each piece that Travelpro makes keeps the consumer in mind.
Travelpro Crew 8, the latest update to the Crew series, brings a new perspective to luggage. The Crew 8 has the packing capacity that is perfect for a carry on bag and includes a large zippered front pocket providing storage for laptops, newspapers, sweaters and any last minute items before leaving for the airport. The carry on piece also has a removable suit sleeve with patented padded foam bars for wrinkle-free packing and a smaller ticket pocket providing quick access to a wallet, passport, iPod®, keys and your airline tickets. With these essential additions, the Travelpro Crew 8 22″ Expandable Rollaboard Suiter will securely hold all of your personal belongings while you travel to that all important meeting.
Now that I know there are many luggage options available to me ranging from cheap luggage sets to designer luggage; from blue briefcases to brown briefcases and every color in between; maybe I can find a way to get on a plane and travel with the new luggage set I’ve purchased from Irv’s Luggage!
