Ideal Carry On Bags and Luggage for the Frequent Flyer

Posted

As airlines try to maximise their profits by increased charges for extras such as baggage, seating allocation and food etc, more and more people are opting for carry on cabin bags and trolleys.

To ensure a smooth trip through the airport, a trolley bag is the first choice of frequent travellers and it needs to have robust, quality wheels, good telescopic handles, easy access to external compartments for documents, numerous functional internal sections and those little extras such as key clips and side pockets for bottled water or umbrella. Also, if you have a tech messenger bag or briefcase with your laptop as hand luggage, another consideration is a trolley sleeve so it can be safely stacked on top of your other luggage.

At Attavanti we have a range of functional and stylish Italian designer, travel bags in materials that include luxury leather, rubber coated leather and lightweight nylon. All have quality fittings, wheels, telescopic handles and well thought out pockets and compartments for all your travel needs.

Does your luggage need a much needed upgrade ? These are Attavanti's best sellers

Travel in style with a Giorgio Fedon 1919 lightweight Trolley Cabin Bag that combines Italian leather with nylon. It has quality telescopic metal handle and 4 durable wheels for smooth manoeuvrability plus the addition of luxury leather in a contrast colour used to create the outer compartments, pockets and name tag. The interior is lined in Fedon orange fabric and has functional detachable inner mesh and zipped pockets and a useful removable interior hanging sleeve that will keep your business, evening suit or dress less creased and ready to hang. 

If you prefer the freedom on holiday of a backpack when travelling then Giorgio Fedon have a great bag in leather and nylon that converts into a trolley bag. A telescopic single handle and retractable wheels transforms it to a trolley. Stylish leather outer pockets for a laptop and documents enables you to negotiate a crowded terminal and airplane aisle with ease and speed.

Which ever you choose make sure you have a fabulous journey and do check the airlines dimensions for cabin bags as they can vary. Buon viaggio e vacanze.
