Suitcases: Your best companion on your journeys

Liberalization and the advancement in the traveling sector has resulted number of globetrotters. The purpose may be personal or business or a combination of these two. One item that top the list that these people carry with them on those trip are-suitcases. The number of suitcases people carry with them may vary from men to women, business man to a man traveling for pleasure, an official to a student, but they are an unavoidable part of travel today; no matter the travel is within the country or abroad.
Over a period of time they have undergone a series of transformations, both in their shape as well as the materials used to manufacture them. In the early days of their existence they were made of hard wood or metals, today they are made out of plastic but the same time claims to be sturdier, scratch proof and light in weight.
As for size you will be surprised to know that they come in all sizes that one can imagine. Right from the vanity case used by a lady on tour, that ensure that she keeps her appearance to a presentable one always, there are jumbo ones that can pack a good amount of things you require during the travel as well as for a short stay away from the home.
It is indeed interesting the way they are named. No I am not talking about the brands; that is a separate story. They are named mostly after the particular use they are put into. You have document cases, overnight cases, vanity cases and for that matter you even have big an heavy ones named as Pullman; as the name suggest it has to be pulled with the help of the wheels attached to them. Carry-on cases are meant for a couple on a brief tour. Duffel bags are of soft type, but they come in a variety of sizes that too without wheels. Then there are strollers that are much preferred by the business executives to pull along with the help of wheels. They have sufficient space for their traveling needs both in terms of dress as well as paper work stored in special compartments designed to hold them safely.
The selection of the one for you must be done as per the need. For example if you must check in your luggage rather than a cabin baggage during a flight, it is advisable you go for a hard one rather than a soft one as a safety measure against pilfering. But when you are on sightseeing tour on your own transport a soft luggage will be ideal with its light weight and able to stow conveniently in the boot of the vehicle.
The new generation back pack is really a challenge to the existence of suitcases to certain extent. But again those back packs are not sturdy and has to be handled with great care, especially if you carry a laptop in them; mainly used by the new generation executives. Whether you journey is a long one or a short one, they help you to pack your things in order and keep them safe during the journey.
