Essential bags to invest in
There are a number of different models of bags that are designed for different occasions. Depending on the activity, there are criteria that the bag should meet such as functionality, spaciousness and durability. If you are going away for a few days, a smaller bag is ideal, while if you are planning a longer trip, a practical bag with more space is required.

Many can certainly relate to the situation where, just before departure, you start to doubt the choice of bag – one is too big, while the other is elegant, but too small. This usually results in a last-minute reorganisation. Personally, I then decide on the smaller bag, even if it can lead to the occasional bag being added with the stuff that will not fit in the bag. If you recognise yourself in this scenario, you have come to the right place. Below we list four different types of bags that are worth an investment for different purposes. You will thank yourself the next time you pack for a trip, whether it is for a longer visit or just to go to work.
A spacious suitcase from Tumi is the perfect travel companion for those travelling long distances. When choosing a suitcase, three parameters are decisive, namely model, durability and safety. A suitcase with four wheels is better, as it relieves the back of the heavier load. In addition, it is important to choose a bag with a reliable lock to secure your luggage during the trip. The suitcase will probably take the occasional bump as it is transported across continents. Therefore, it is important to think long-term when investing in a suitcase and the quality is no exception. If your suitcase meets the above-mentioned criteria, it should be able to accompany you on many adventures to come.
The briefcase is an indispensable classic that combines timelessness and elegance. In addition, it is a practical bag that is best carried to the workplace or university. There is space for all your business-related belongings such as a computer, pen, notepad and documents. There is a variety of briefcases to browse through. To name a few: the classic leather briefcase without separate compartments or a more contemporary briefcase in canvas material with different compartments. When choosing a briefcase, we recommend a model and design that, in addition to being functional also reflects your personal style.
Toiletry bag Everyone should own a toiletry bag, regardless of whether you travel frequently or more sporadically. In addition, a toiletry bag proves practical even when you are at home and need to organise your belongings. There are a number of different models, which can sometimes make the choice difficult. Firstly, think about your travel habits. If you are a sporadic traveller, a simple toiletry bag with a main compartment might be for you. On the other hand, if you are a neat and orderly convenience traveller, a toiletry bag with multiple compartments and layers may be the choice for you. Regardless of which type of toiletry bag seems best, we all agree on the advantages of having all toiletries items and other small things gathered neatly in one place.
The backpack is a versatile bag with several uses, in addition to it being very ergonomic. If you commute to work by cycling or walking, the backpack becomes an invaluable companion. It is also practical to and from training sessions and shorter trips. However, how should you choose a suitable backpack? Firstly, it is important to think about what purpose the backpack will serve. In addition to this, it is equally crucial that the model and design reflect your style and preferences. If training activities are the focus, you should go for a sportier model made of a durable material such as nylon, while an everyday backpack can be made of cotton canvas. If the use mainly involves shorter trips, a classic design in quality leather may be for you.
