Capacity: - Internal space for packing items. Do not be misled by the externals of a case as sometimes the frames may reduce internal packing space.

Carry-on luggage: - luggage that is manufactured to a size that can be taken on the airline with you and will come in various shapes, sizes and textures.

Compartments:-Look for handy separated sections which may provide sealable wetbags, shoe bags etc to keep wet or dirty items separate from other items in the suitcase

Denier: - The thickness of the fabric the case is manufactured with and therefore would predict durability.

Expandability: - Luggage designed with a zipped compartment that will instantly allow a few extra centimetres of space instantly.

Garment bag: — a garment bag is a piece of luggage that will help reduce wrinkles and it is usually a soft vertical bag with interior bar and hangers for garments and outside pockets for other apparel. Can be folded in half or thirds, lengthwise and fastened for secure transporting of clothes.

Hide away or Telescopic locking handles: - handles that are securely tucked out of sight unless needed and can then be pulled out to use and would adjust at various heights.

Integrated ID tag — ID tag for your contact information (should your luggage go astray) sewn directly onto your luggage rather than hanging off the handle. This proves to be a more secure option.

Laptops compartment: - this is an increasing necessity for our modern lifestyle. The case would provide a padded section where laptops would transport securely. Make sure the compartment is suitable for the correct size laptop.

Lining: - internal feature for extra protect and may sometimes have an extra pocket.

Smart Sleeve: - a pocket that slips over the handle of an Upright or Spinner case.

Soft side: - cases manufactured from fabrics of differing deniers.

TSA Lock: - This can be integrated or they can come in separate padlocks. This means “Transportation Security Administration”. This is a special locking system that comes with a combination lock as well as a section for a key.

The keyhole section is for a special key that the airport security holds should they have cause to check your luggage in your absence.
