Top Hardside Luggage – Samsonite Fiero

 

The Samsonite Fiero Hardside Luggage Collection is one of the newest arrivals at Irv’s Luggage. As a Samsonite Luggage brand, there is a lot you should expect. Given the quality of other Samsonite hard sided luggage as the Winfield 2, Silhouette Sphere, L.I.F.T collections, Fiero Hard Side Luggage carries on the legacy of quality, durable hardside luggage that Samsonite has come to personify. Reengineered spinner wheels, a diamond textured 100% pure polycarbonate hardside luggage shell, TSA-approved lock, super lightweight construction, and expandable functionality certainly make these hard sided cases a confident buy for any traveler.

If you’ve never been sure why spinner wheels are so important, see here:

 

The hardside luggage is composed of a polycarbonate shell; it’s “diamond” pattern helps prevent scratches and scuffs. That is common with hard side luggage, and Samsonite wants to ensure that your case will hold up under whatever conditions you encounter. Seeing your checked bag visibly deformed or squished, possibly scratched/torn would be a thing of the past. The spinner wheels and lighter weight make hardside luggage easier to move and pull alongside you rather than behind you, so you’re not tripping up fellow travelers or getting your handle/hardside luggage caught on a corner. You may pack a lot for your trip, and the lighter weight of the luggage itself and the spinner wheels help you stay on the move regardless of the contents (within reason!) Expandability allows for room for almost everything from laundry bags to electronic device chargers, so that no necessity is left behind. Or so you can bring back plenty of souvenirs.

Hopefully, the Fiero hardside luggage would limit mad dashes because you ran late dragging a heavy non-spinner wheeled case. Hopefully, the Samsonite Fiero hard sided luggage will save you on additional baggage fees because they fit everything you need. The Samsonite Fiero is available in 20”, 24”, and 28” to ensure you have just enough room for any kind of trip and hopefully, you look as good and flawless while traveling, as your scratch-preventive polycarbonate hardside luggage should.

 

Luggage: Your Constant Companion

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step,” as the saying goes.  To me, it begins not just with a single physical step, but when you make the choice to go, and what goes with you.  Upright luggage, carry on luggage, ultimately it’s your best friend or your worst enemy if you choose poorly.  Your suitcase is your first traveling companion, before you’ve even decided on any people you’re going on your trip with.  It’s your most consistent and reliable companion at that.  Plans change, availabilities come and go, flights get delayed, but your luggage stays with you, except in the most extreme of circumstances.  It’ll hold your gear and keep it safe, might even be a chair in a pinch.  Choose wisely, and I suggest starting with Heys USA Luggage.  With their designs and reputation, you don’t have to look through too many luggage reviews to find one that suits you.

If you’re a traveler from outer space or someone looking for a weekend getaway, you might need expandable luggage or a leather duffel bag, and you want to be ready.  It’s a tenuous balance!  Too much, and it’s cumbersome.  Too little, and you’re turning your underwear inside out with another week to go.  Your luggage will be there for you to provide fresh clothes and the amenities necessary to make you feel human again where ever you go.  The expression to live out one’s suitcase isn’t just an offhanded statement, travel luggage is your home away from home, why not make the best of it?

Heys USA Luggage offers spinners, hardside cases, fun designs, even computer cases.  You can peruse our abundant selection on IrvsLuggage.com or visit us directly at our Northbrook or Mount Prospect locations.  That way, you get a personal touch from our knowledgeable employees that will help you find what you want, get what you need, and send you off where you’re going to go.  If your luggage has been through some tough times, we’ll take care of it with one of the largest luggage repair centers in the Midwest and it will look good as new.  You take care of your luggage and it will take care of you.

Luxury Luggage by Rimowa Luggage and Britto Luggage by Heys USA

Ahhhh, living in the lap of luxury that is what I want to do; having the best of everything, now that sounds like a nice way to go through life, does it not?  Well, I do not know much about the best cars, boats or even houses but I do know about luggage; and my top choices for the best luxury carry on luggage and the best luxury lightweight luggage sets would have to include Rimowa Luggage and Britto Luggage by Heys USA.

What makes a piece of luggage luxurious? Well just like anything in life, it depends on the person’s perspective that is making the decision. A top executive traveling the world on business would be looking for different attributes of “luxury” than the famous artist or creative designer who travel the world selling his/her artistic creations. Of course both types want the best materials and craftsmanship; however when it comes to appearance and design these individuals might be looking for something entirely different.

Rimowa Luggage, made of state of the art polycarbonate plastic that is extremely strong and   lightweight with a sleek professional modern appearance, has a high level of appeal for today’s top business men. Not only does Rimowa Luggage have a cool “James Bond-like” appearance that many men find very appealing, it also is packed with a variety of impressive features including: a telescoping locking handle system; accordion file compartments; laptop compatibility; integrated TSA-approved combination locks; 360 degree spinner wheel configuration for easy maneuverability; and Abrasion-resistant, tear-proof fabric pockets on front of case, to name a few.  I could go on and on about Rimowa and all its’ great attributes for today’s top road warriors!!  Rimowa Luggage comes in a variety of sizes and shapes and has some wonderful lightweight luggage sets available too.

Britto Luggage by Heys USA is also made from a strong polycarbonate composite that is protected  by a clear coated paint that gives the bags a sharp glossy appearance. However, what makes the Britto luggage lines so luxurious is the collaboration behind it; “the world’s foremost hardside luggage brand Heys USA” and the incredible artwork of famous pop artist Romero Britto.  Bright intricate color patterns and shapes that really standout and make a statement about the individuals who are carrying these incredibly unique and beautifully luxurious carry on luggage pieces without sacrificing the quality of a well-made bag.  Britto Luggage by Heys USA is the perfect luxury luggage for creative individuals who have a constant need to express themselves at any cost!

So if you are an individual who has to have the best or with your crazy travel schedule cannot afford not to have the best, check out this fabulous luxury luggage from Rimowa and Britto by Heys USA today at IrvsLuggage.com !

Airline Baggage Regulations – Is Carry On Luggage the Way to Go?

The Thanksgiving holiday just passed and thousands of people will be heading to airports, to fly around the country after spending quality time with their families or friends. With all of the hustle and bustle of airports during this very busy season, many of you may wonder how you will manage to keep your sanity. With longer waits and more airlines putting restrictions on the items that passengers can travel with, you have to ask yourself – is it really worth it to fly?

The aVictorinox Avolve 20" Expand Wheeled Carry On Spinnernswer is YES! As you plan to visit your family or friends this holiday season, the last thing you want to worry about is whether all of your belongings will fit in spinner suitcases or carry on luggage or backpacks and are within the airline size requirement allowed. This is where Irv’s Luggage (and brand new legislation comes in!)

The recent announcement of a new bill, The Airline Passenger BASICS – or Basic Airline Standards to Improve Customer Satisfaction – Act will start to change the flying experience for many travelers. This act will protect consumers from excessive baggage fees at airports and charge airlines that do not comply with these proposed standards. This act will not only benefit consumers in the short term (more money in your pocket) but in the long term (more pleasant travel experiences) as well.

According to new legislation proposed by Senator Mary Landrieu of LouisAntler Liquis Lightweight Hardside 4 Wheel Carry On Upright Red iana, “Many airlines consider checking a bag not to be a right, but a privilege – and one with a hefty fee attached. The Airline Passenger BASICS Act will guarantee passengers one checked bag without the financial burden of paying a fee, or the headache of trying to fit everything into a carry-on.”

Until this legislation is passed, as travelers you have to be aware of what luggage is available to you and how it will fare on your trip. Antler Luggage is a great European-based company that gives frequent travelers the ability to pack a lot in a compact space (and not have to worry about size restrictions); Delsey Luggage is not only lightweight luggage but comes in both hard sided and soft sided styles in a variety of colors; and Heys Luggage has something for the whole family from their Disney by Heys line for kids to their Crown Edition by Heys line for the frequent business traveler. Whether you are looking for luggage for long term travel or just a weekend getaway let Irv’s Luggage help you with all of your travel needs!
