Like any frequent traveller, I am always on the lookout for luggage that is durable, user friendly and suitable for my travel needs. It’s also a bonus when everything I need to take with can fit into one bag that can be stowed in an overhead compartment.
Travel needs also continuously changes as life changes. Since our baby girl was born, I inevitably had to re-evaluate the practicality of my luggage. If there is one thing that can really get on my nerves, it is struggling with something which should be assisting you. The same goes for luggage – it is there to assist you in transporting your valuables, not to frustrate you with wheels that can’t carry the weight, zips that break or impractical design. I’ve been looking for something that could tick all the boxes in terms of comfort when it comes to travelling. Something that is easy to carry and pull; durable, but not heavy; with handles placed at comfortable angles and in sensible positions considering picking up, pulling and taking out of vehicles and overhead stowage and something that would stand the test of time, because boy, oh, boy, travelling has become expensive!
The latest addition to my luggage collection has proven to be quite handy for multiple travel needs. Whether I travel with my family or for work, the THULE Subterra Carry-On has become my go-to carry-on bag as it is light and durable with its interior brilliantly designed. It’s also quite presentable, which helps me to travel in style.
I’ve found that this carry-on bag is perfect for bleisure travel, as it has a divided main compartment, which assists in keeping your work outfits from your play outfits or clean clothes from dirty clothes.
Travelling with a hat often frustrates me, as I don’t want to wear it indoors, but I like to keep it close for when we get on and off the plane and carrying it by hand is just a schlep. With THULE’s Subterra Carry-On‘s piggyback strap, which can easily be attached and removed, I can travel with at least one hand free.
The bag’s wheels seem to be larger than the norm, making it much easier to pull and they are of really good quality too. So is the handle, which can be adjusted, as well as the bag’s exoskeleton and polycarbonate back panel.
Travelling with THULE has made an immense difference on the way I pack and travel. It’s easier and more organised and it calms the nerves.
