Luggage Sets make it easier to find all of the things that you need without shopping for several individual pieces. If you buy the right one, you should be able to get everything in a single purchase.

Buying sets can save more money than buying individually because they are usually less expensive together than they would be separately. Sets range from two cases to more than eight cases, and some feature pieces that cannot be purchased alone.

Choosing Better Luggage

Generally, a more expensive, name-brand set of luggage will last much longer and be better equipped to endure the inevitable impact of travel and automated luggage handling. These extra, often hidden, qualities found within better-built cases are what keeps personal items safe and intact through multiple journeys over many years. Savvy travelers should search for bags with high-quality inline wheels, smooth and sturdy zippers, and high-density ballistic nylons and canvases.

Additionally, high-end luggage lines are usually finished to a higher standard, with materials that maintain their cosmetic appeal even after years of use. Polycarbonates and aluminum cases not only keep delicate items from damage while in transit but also look fantastic. Packing these cases often provides more protection too, since they employ advanced packing systems that allow you to keep delicate and breakable items in different compartments from your clothing. These subtle details are what makes higher quality cases stand out.

History Of Luggage

The Suitcase as we know it today started as an afterthought in the luggage and leather goods business. However, over time, they became a symbol of travel. An 1897 wholesale price list included the words “suit case” only twice in a 20-page list of luggage types. 

Early suitcases were lighter and more portable than the traditional travel trunks, yet they were still bulky by today’s standards. Leather, wicker or thick rubbery cloth was stretched over a rigid wood or steel frame. Corners were rounded out using brass or leather caps.

The late 19th century marked a shift in the history of transportation of the time. Travel was not just for the rich, this was the first steps to mass tourism. People had traditionally traveled for exploration and trade. However, by approximately 1900, hotels in in locations such as Switzerland were recording millions of overnight stays each year. 

Over time, trunks went out of style, suitcases took on not just practical but also cultural significance. By the 1920s, suitcases featured in books such as The Hardy Boys and such films as The Woman in the Suitcase, as a literary symbol for both mobility and mystery—perhaps filled with gold, photographs, or simply a stranger’s possessions. During the Great Depression, farmers who worked fields away from home were called “suitcase farmers.”
