MY TOP PICK:
If you are looking for the best one overall I recommend the Samsonite S'Cure Dlx for its all round durability, locking system and features. It’s also available in a number of sizes and colours.

Looking for a suitcase which will stand the test of time and will keep any fragile luggage in one piece going through the airport?

Hard shell cases used to be quite cumbersome, but nowadays they are made of much more lightweight, durable materials.

A hard shell suitcase usually offers more protection than a soft suitcase.
