Top 10 criteria for choosing the right luggage:


1. trip length and destination: plan according to the length and destination of your trip. Short trips require less luggage than longer stays, and different destinations have different clothing and equipment requirements.

2. means of transportation: Consider the means of transportation for your trip. Airplane, train, car or hiking have different requirements for size, weight and type of luggage.

3. weather conditions: Check the weather forecast for your destination. Luggage for warm, tropical places differs from that for colder, rainy destinations.

4. type of accommodation: The type of accommodation you choose can influence your choice of luggage. Backpacking or camping, for example, require lighter and more functional luggage.

5. local activities: Plan your luggage according to the activities you are planning. Sports equipment, elegant clothing for evening events or special hiking equipment should be taken into account.

6. luggage restrictions: Check the baggage restrictions of your airline or other means of transportation to avoid additional costs or inconvenience.

7. security aspects: Choose luggage with secure latches and sturdy materials to prevent theft and damage.

8. organization and accessibility: Choose luggage with convenient compartments and pockets to allow easy organization and quick access to important items.

9. personal needs: Consider personal needs such as medications, electronic devices or special care products that require special space or protection.

10. sustainability and eco-friendliness: Consider whether eco-friendly or sustainably produced luggage is an option to minimize your environmental footprint.

The first step on your journey - choosing the right luggage


Suitcases & bags for your vacation:

  • Two- or four-roller suitcases: ideal for comfortable travel
  • Large suitcases: For longer trips
  • Trolley: For short trips
  • Handbag: For important items such as a wallet or ID card

When you travel, you usually take a suitcase with you. Preferably a two- or four-wheel suitcase so that you don't have to carry too much weight. If you're traveling for a longer period of time, you can take a large suitcase, whereas a trolley is ideal for short trips. At koffer24, we offer suitcases in all sizes and in various designs. A practical handbag is also a must-have for carrying all the items you need to have to hand. Be it your wallet or your ID. Here, too, you will find a large selection at koffer24.


Well equipped for your adventure:

  • Backpack instead of suitcase: for active vacations
  • Trekking backpacks: Large capacity and ergonomic
  • Hiking backpacks: For shorter hikes

If you are more into active vacations and adventures, then a suitcase is usually not the right choice. You need a well-equipped backpack. Depending on the length of your stay, this can also be larger or smaller. At koffer24 you will find trekking backpacks that have a large capacity and are ergonomic at the same time. This means you can take everything you need for your adventure without putting too much strain on your joints and back. If you're not going on a long adventure vacation, but just a hike, you'll also find hiking backpacks that will help you carry your belongings up the mountain.


Organized on the road:

  • The importance of organization: planning accommodation and itineraries
  • High-quality luggage at koffer24: For comfort and ergonomics

All types of travel have something in common: organization is important. This doesn't just mean booking your accommodation or thinking about a specific itinerary, but also that your luggage needs to be well thought out. Your suitcase or rucksack should have room for everything you need and, if possible, comfort and ergonomics should also be a priority. At koffer24 you will find high-quality luggage so that you are well equipped when traveling.

Choosing the right luggage for a trip is crucial for comfort and efficiency. The wrong luggage can lead to unnecessary stress, while the right luggage can make a trip much more pleasant.


Size and type of luggage:

  • Adapt to trip length and type: small for weekend trips, large for longer trips
  • Hard-shell vs. soft luggage: protection vs. flexibility

First of all, the size of the luggage should be adapted to the length and type of trip. For example, small suitcases or backpacks are sufficient for weekend trips, while longer trips require larger suitcases. The choice between hard-shell and soft-sided luggage also plays a role here. Hard-shell suitcases offer better protection for delicate items, while soft luggage is more flexible in terms of storage space.


Adaptation to the type of travel:

  • Backpacks: For backpacking trips and hikes
  • Wheeled suitcases: For city trips and hotel stays
  • Garment bag: For business trips

Depending on the type of trip, specific types of luggage should be considered. Backpacks are ideal for backpacking or hiking, while wheeled suitcases are suitable for city trips and hotel stays. For business trips, a garment bag can be useful for transporting suits and formal wear without creasing.


Comfort and handling:

  • Ergonomic handles and wheels
  • Additional compartments and organizers

Comfort and handling of luggage are just as important. Ergonomic handles and wheels make transportation easier, especially with heavy luggage. Additional compartments and organizers help to keep the contents organized and allow quick access to important items.


Luggage security:

  • Robust locks and materials
  • TSA locks for air travel

Another important aspect is the security of your luggage. Robust locks and hard-wearing materials protect against theft and damage. When traveling by air, you should also pay attention to TSA locks, which can be opened by security authorities without damaging the lock.


Conclusion - the right choice for a carefree trip:

Choosing the right luggage is an essential part of travel preparation. It not only influences the comfort during the trip, but also the security and protection of the luggage contents. The travel experience can be significantly improved by taking into account the type of trip, duration and personal needs.
