Soft Sided Luggage
Choosing the best travel suitcase is a personal decision that depends on needs, wants, and practicality. While there’s nothing wrong with going the hard shell route, soft-side luggage has its own set of benefits to take into consideration — but wouldn’t you prefer having options?
Here at Briggs & Riley, we pride ourselves on manufacturing luggage and bags that suit all travel and age types no matter where you’re headed or for how long. While we stand behind the quality construction of our luggage, our lifetime warranty gives you peace of mind that your bag will be repaired, even if the damage was caused by the airline or security. Like the memories that will last you a lifetime, so do our products: “Engineered for Reality, Guaranteed for Life.”
Thinking about purchasing a soft-sided suitcase but are still not quite sure what the top benefits are? Don’t worry; we’ve got you.
SOFT-SIDED LUGGAGE IS RESILIENT
One big complaint about hard shell luggage is that it can’t always absorb typical travel abuse — especially at the airport. While soft side luggage is more apt to show dirt and stains, it’s effortless to clean. Not to mention, it can be thrown into the cargo (belly) of the plane or tossed and turned on the baggage claim belt yet still come out without a scratch.
FLEXIBLE SPACE ALLOWANCE
A soft luggage bag is constructed out of flexible materials so that you can pack more personal belongings — including those irregularly shaped objects. It’s also easier to place into an overhead bin on a plane or compact luggage racks on buses and trains. Of course, Briggs & Riley takes things a step further by incorporating a patented CX Technology that expands selected soft luggage bags up to 34%. From our Domestic Carry-On Expandable Spinner to the International Expandable Carry-On Upright Suitcase, you’ll have more packing space than ever before.
SOFT SHELL SUITCASES OFFER ORGANISATION OPTIONS
Another advantage of soft side luggage is that it has internal and external pockets (or as we call it, Outsider pockets), so you have the added convenience of quickly accessing that much-needed power cable or travel read without having to open up your suitcase. Even better, many of our soft-sided bags also feature the SpeedThru pocket for storage of items at security checkpoints — because everyone can agree that’s one of the least desirable parts about travelling.
MULTIPLE SOFT LUGGAGE STYLES
Your travels change regularly, so why wouldn't you switch out your bag? That’s why we have multiple styles and sizes to suit the needs of all types of travellers and trips. Maybe soft-sided carry-on luggage, such as our Domestic Carry-On Expandable Spinner, is your go-to for a weekend getaway. Work Trip? The Rolling Cabin Bag or the International Expandable Carry-On Upright Suitcase can hold all your business essentials — and that crisp power suit for that important presentation. An extended overseas adventure requires more space for personal belongings, as well as those impromptu souvenirs, so why not give the Medium Expandable Spinner a spin?
