K-Tipp: «Many wheeled suitcases break quickly»

The consumer magazine K-Tipp takes a close look at hard-shell rolling suitcases in its April 10, 2024 magazine issue. Two suitcases in particular performed well. As a good alternative, travel adventurers, sun worshippers, individual travelers or short trip lovers and anyone who simply loves to travel will find the robust PELI™ Air Travel Case 1535 or 1615 with a lifetime guarantee exclusively in the Verpatec online store.

It's travel time - also in Switzerland. The summer vacations are just around the corner and some Swiss cantons already have school vacations. A suitcase, travel bag or rucksack is part of every vacation - no matter where and whether adventure or beach vacations, city or weekend trips, camping vacations, round trips or overnight stays in hotels, apartments or tents. If you're still looking for the right piece of luggage for your upcoming vacation, the K-Tipp test (paid article; in German) is a welcome opportunity. However, it is a pity that only two of the twelve hard-shell rolling suitcases tested were rated as good.

K-Tipp tests hard-shell wheeled suitcases

In its article about the criteria for a good wheeled suitcase, «A good hard-shell suitcase provides reliable protection against moisture and damage. The wheels should last for many kilometers - even on bumpy ground. This is the only way to travel relaxed.» According to K-Tipp, the testers found weak points in the telescopic handle or the wheel suspension, among other things. Some suitcases showed permanent dents or cracks after drop and impact tests.

It's a good that there are other alternatives to the two well-rated hard-shell trolleys: For example, the PELI™ Air Travel Cases 1535 and 1615.

Good alternatives: PELI™ Air Travel Case 1535 and 1615...
The robust PELI™ Air Travel Cases are particularly well known for outdoor travel. However, the travel cases can be used for any "vacation purpose". They are waterproof, shatterproof, dustproof and, thanks to the super-light HPX2™ polymer plastic, up to 40% lighter than comparable cases. The PELI™ travel cases are equipped with travel inserts, lid dividers and packing cubes so that your luggage or equipment is visibly well stowed away. PELI™ cases come with a lifetime guarantee.

Especially when traveling by air, suitcases can sometimes experience some turbulent times on their way from check-in to baggage claim at the destination airport. With a PELI™ suitcase, your luggage remains safely protected.

The PELI™ Travelcase 1535 in hand luggage size* is ideal for short breaks. The PELI™ Air Travel Cases 1535 and 1615 are now available in Switzerland exclusively in our online store in the colors black, indigo and bordeaux red.
