Whether it’s your checked bag being tossed on luggage carousels or a carry-on bumping around in the overhead bin, your luggage tends to take a beating every time you travel. The Victorinox Etherius Illusion case is made from 100 per cent polycarbonate, so they’re strong enough to stand up to all the inevitable bumps and scrapes that happen as you get from place-to-place.

This sturdy shell is also super lightweight, a bonus for overpackers pushing the weight limit that it also means they’re easy to move around. A zippered expansion system gives you a little extra room for longer trips.

The push-button handle locks into three positions, so it’s just as comfortable for shorter travelers as it is for tall globetrotters. Zippered divider walls on the interior allow you to separate your clean and dirty clothes, while Y-shaped compression straps help to keep your folded clothes in place and reduce wrinkling.

It comes in three sizes: carry-on (20 x 39 x 55 cm), medium (30 x 45 x 67 cm) and large (31 x 47 x 75 cm), so you’re ready for wherever your next journey takes you.
