In search of a new piece of luggage and not sure where to start? A Packing Specialist at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters can help you narrow down your choices. We are a bit different from other luggage stores. At our store you won’t see wall to wall luggage- but you will see carefully selected and edited luggage collections that we believe are the best on the market. Our goal with each brand and collection is simple- we look through all pieces from each collection and bring in the ones we think best suit our clientele. We only choose pieces that exceed current industry standards and are beautifully designed.
Obviously, the size of each piece is variable. We recommend packing as small as you can. Being able to easily manage your luggage while traveling is important and will make the trip more enjoyable. You must also keep in mind your airline’s weight and size restrictions. Try a lightweight hard-sided piece to meet a stringent weight restriction where a wheeled duffel might be beneficial if you are doing a lot of hopping on and off transportation. Duffels are more of a slender shape which makes it easier to navigate down aisles. Spinner wheels also make maneuvering the bag easier. And, don’t forget about expansion zippers. You can down-size knowing that you have the option of expanding.
How you prefer to pack your bag and live out of it can be equally important in selecting a new piece. Some people prefer packing a soft-side where you pack all in one side and have easily accessible exterior pockets. Others prefer the added protection you receive from a hard-sided shell. These open like a clam-shell thus packing in both sides. This allows you to pack multiple people in one bag in a more organized fashion, but also can take up a little more space when laying the luggage open in your destination. Either way, we believe that packing cubes are a game changer and a fantastic way to add organization to any bag.
The adage you get what you pay for pertains to luggage. You’ll notice little touches like extra corner guards, bigger wheels and dual-casters, better and bigger zipper teeth on higher quality pieces. A Packing Specialist at Peace Frogs Travel/Outfitters can help you make the best decision on your next piece of luggage. We also offer 15-minute personal packing demos.
