Samsonite: The Perfect Travel Companion

As the final week of teaching wraps up and exams and May Dip loom on the horizon, I’m sure many of us are beginning to daydream about the summer holidays. Whether you are planning a girly getaway to Greece, or simply trying to navigate the logistical nightmare that is moving all of your worldly possessions from A to B, Samsonite has the solution. With security and comfort at the forefront of everything they produce, there’s a suitcase for everyone in amongst their huge range.


First up is Magnum Eco, the perfect choice for eco-concious holidaymakers. In four sizes and five different colours, the Magnum Eco boasts a hard shell, with lined interior and four wheels for maximum ease. The best part? The largest Magnum Eco case, is made from recycled polypropylene - equivalent to 483 yoghurt cups, and 14 recycled PET bottles. With three compartments on the interior, there’s space for all of your essentials, and the cabin friendly size is acceptable to 43 different airlines, allowing you to travel in style wherever you go.

Light, but super tough, is Proxis — the company’s premium offering. The shell is made from Roxkin™, Samsonite’s own creation and produced in their own factory in Hungary (the plant, impressively, is run on entirely renewable green energy), a lightweight but highly durable material that has a high resistance to shock — perfect for those longer haul journeys! In six colours and four sizes, there’s a wealth of features to meet your every need, with the cabin size being expandable and boasting a USB port. Each sizes comes with a plethora of compartments and pockets, ensuring all of your belongings can be stowed away safely.


Proxis cases also boast an impressive 10 year warranty, with a no-questions asked repair service, and any case deemed irreparable will be recycled or repurposes and replaced for free. Slightly more expensive than Samsonite’s other offerings, Proxis is nonetheless worth it’s weight in gold.



Finally, for those shorter breaks, is Neopod — the company’s cabin-only range. With four wheels for greater ease, and coming in two different colours, Neopod offers you around 10kg of packing weight. Boasting an external laptop compartment, pockets for phones and tablets, and a removable wet pocket, the Neopod really does give you space for everything you need, without compromising compactability. Perfect for those shorter city breaks!



Having been founded in 1910, Samsonite has 113 years of innovation behind it. It is clear that this desire to better the way we travel is still at the forefront of everything they do, with a particularly commendable emphasis on sustainability. Wherever you’re travelling this summer, there’s something in the range for you.
