Safe Suitcases - Why You Should Buy Hard Sided Luggage

The safest way to avoid being victimized is to buy luggage that does not rely on zippers to keep it closed! Some of the leading luggage manufacturers like Samsonite are aware of this security problem and now make zippered luggage where the zipper-pullers/handle are locked in place. This makes it more difficult for the "bad guys" to open the suitcase. It also makes it almost impossible for them to cover their tracks by simply closing the case by running the zipper-pullers over the zip to close it.

    Hi Bambi, I am glad to be able to give back even just a little!

    Luckily I have not had any nightmare experiences – even after 30 years of steady international travel (for business and pleasure). I attribute this largely to my purchase of hard-sided, non zippered luggage early in my traveling career.

    I work in the airport industry and I see what goes on behind the scenes in airports so I know what really happens to our luggage once we entrust it to the airlines. You’d be surprised by what really damages our luggage. There are machines aptly named “kickers” that move (kick) our bags around the baggage system. If you’d like to see them in action, I have placed some videos on my website. I do not want to link-drop but it is important that people are aware of this hidden danger so I have linked my name in this comment to the site. (safesuitcases dot com)

    Thanks again for the great post – more people need to hear about this issue.
