The Story Behind Making a Hard Luggage

As the name suggests -Hard luggage are trolley bags with rigid exteriors. Since travelling has expanded and become a part of daily lives, so have hard luggage.

What makes a cabin trolley bag classify as HARD LUGGAGE 

  • Rigid Exterior - The use of materials like polycarbonate, polypropylene Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene and Aluminium (in case of luxury travel bags) helps users' possessions stay safe from rain, dust, moisture and hail.
  • A Thoughtful Ergonomic Design - A functional structure is one of the main requests of travellers that help them with packing and carrying their luggage.
  • When it comes to packing, whether cabin trolley bags have internal mesh pockets with zippers, packing cubes to sort clothing, shoes and toiletries, or extra compartments for tech like laptops, iPads, chargers, power banks and cables. The second aspect here is how easy it is to carry luggage, whether the luggage has a trolley mechanism with smooth wheels.
  • At Assembly, while creating the best cabin trolley bags, along with build and design, we also kept our ears to what the modern-day traveller wants in their luggage. This was an essential aspect when it came to creating the best hard luggage for users.
