The most durable luggage of 2016 is the Delsey Helium Shadow Lightweight.
Delesey is a French luggage manufacture that makes stylish and lightweight bags protected by shatter-proof Bayer Virgin Makrolon Polycarbonate. The Helium’s outer shell is nearly invulnerable to impact. It costs about $129.
The Helium‘s design is light, durable, innovative, and stylish. It has a Makrolon Polycarbonate finish, which protects the luggage from impacts and extreme temperatures. Travel website Skyscanner tested Delsey luggage for durability and found that it survived kicking, stomping, hammer blows, and even the weight of a car. They concluded that Delsey Helium is “harder than a French legionnaire.” In addition to being durable it is also scratch resistant, so the luggage will maintain its good looks for years.
It is a lightweight and spacious piece of luggage. It weighs 9lbs 8oz and it is 25″ inches high and 11.5″ inches wide. The interior has two lined components, which is plenty to fit a week’s worth of clothes and travel accessories. It includes a buttoned mesh divider and adjustable web straps that help keep your material organized during travel. I found the interior to be relatively free of gimmicky straps and unnecessary compartments.
It comes with a 10 year warranty.
The Rockland 20 inch Polycarbonate Carry On is another durable piece of luggage. It is small and lightweight, ideal for shorter trips. Multi-directional spinner wheels help the Rockland glide across airport terminals with ease. It has a chrome telescoping push button handle.
Rockland products come with a three-year warranty.
