Where do I start?
A few years ago on my Eurotrip i had a luggage zipper crises. Often when a zipper breaks on a piece of luggage you the very definition of screwed. What are you supposed to do? Buy new luggage of course.
So at a shop in Germany i bought another suitcase and thoroughly tested the zippers. They seemed to work much better than on the last bag i had. I was a happy camper with a working zipper.
A week later one of the wheels broke on the new piece of luggage.
This is how my journey into finding and curating the highest quality luggage came about. The simple fact is that there is a lot of bad luggage out there. The good news is that there is also a lot of beautifully crafted and sturdy luggage as well. You just have to know where to look!
