Guest Post: Lightweight Cabin Cases that Make Travelling a Breeze

There was a time when you could fly almost anywhere in the world on any airline and at least get to check one bag without extra cost. Unfortunately, this is no longer the case as most airlines add what is often referred to as a ‘fuel surcharge’ for luggage as the price of petrol has gone sky high (no pun intended!) and this is how they attempt to ‘recover’ the cost. For this reason, many frequent travellers have invested in cabin cases that they can carry on with them. However, it is important to be able to carry that case and lift it in bins above your seat. Here are a few ideas for lightweight cabin cases that make travelling a breeze.

Rimowa Salsa Air

Although lightweight, it would be almost impossible to find another cabin case that is as durable. The Rimowa Salsa Air is constructed from a polycarbonate material that is super lightweight. You could even go so far as to call this one of the latest innovations in ‘space age’ materials and if you travel quite a bit, this is exactly what you want. Set on four wheels, the Salsa Air is sturdy and great for walking great distances between airline gates. Remember, many major international airports are the size of a small city, so you want something that will stand up to being toted around over these greater distances.

Samsonite Cosmolite Silver 75cm

What can be said about any Samsonite luggage? This is one company that has been around for more than a century and is actually the world’s largest luggage manufacturer. When it comes to keeping up to trends, Samsonite is not new to the game. With their innovative Cosmolite Silver 75cm, you know you are getting a cabin case that is not only lightweight but stylish and durable as well. As with the Salsa Air by Rimowa, the Samsonite Cosmolite Silver also has four wheels to make absolutely sure you can move your luggage about at greater distances without the wheels breaking off due to wear and tear or for those times when you pack it a bit heavier than normal. Made from a polycarbonate material with Curv technology, the Cosmolite Silver 75cm has classically defined lines and is stylish enough to set a new trend, true to Samsonite’s long history.

Briggs & Riley Baseline Commuter

Now then, for a lightweight commuter cabin case made from a softer material, you can’t do better than the quality of Briggs & Riley Baseline Commuter bag. Considered a cabin case, this bag is expandable and on two wheels for ease of manoeuvrability. As far as technology goes, you won’t find a cabin case that surpasses the innovations in the Baseline Commuter. It can expand up to 1/3 its original size but then shrink back to its normal size so it fits in the overhead bin. If that isn’t innovation, nothing is!

So here you have three of the most stylish cabin cases that are superior in quality and performance. Don’t want to pay the high cost of checking luggage? There is no need to when you can do so much with cabin cases, meaning the cost of luggage will quite quickly pay for itself. When travelling, only the best will do to protect your belongings and these three fit that to a T.
