where to buy suitcases



Cheap Suitcases2015/1/10 03:53 I'm planning a trip to Japan this summer for several weeks. I plan to travel light in the first couple of weeks then shop at Tokyo or Osaka in the last few days.I was wondering where I can find cheap suitcases in Tokyo or Osaka in case my shopping gets out of hand.And what price range would I be looking at for a 26" - 28" suitcase?Thanks!by kooritsuki


Re: Cheap Suitcases2015/1/11 19:01 I was looking at some of the pictures, but the price doesn't look too cheap... Maybe it's just me being too greedy?Is there a possibility of buying medium size suitcases for under 5,000 yen or so?by kooritsukirate this post as useful


Re: Cheap Suitcases2015/1/11 21:51 To answer your question, I always buy travel bags at one of my local supermarkets which is Piago. They sell "carry-bags" less for a few thousand yen. But I think you can find these things anywhere.That said, I don't think it has to be a suitcase at all. I'm a light traveler and I always bring along a bag that is made of something like a parashute/umbrella cloth. It has a pair of handles and closes with a zipper, and folds down flat as paper. If I buy too many souveniers, I just wrap them up with my laundry and put it in this bag and check it in to the airline.But you can wrap your things in anything: Bed sheets, paper and string, anything at all. Use your imagination.by Ucorate this post as useful


Re: Cheap Suitcases2015/1/12 14:38 Is there a possibility of buying medium size suitcases for under 5,000 yen or so?No problem. I've bought several med and carry-on sized suitcases for under 5000 yen in Japan. As others have mentioned, you just gotta shop around the cheaper areas such as Ameyoko, discount department stores, etc. I also tend to carry a large duffle bag on trips. It packs to nothing, and is then used to carry dirty clothes back while my now empty suitcase is free for more fragile souvenirs.by yllwsmrfrate this post as useful


The purpose of a baggage tag or label is to tell the airport staff where the bag is heading. Without the owner physically present to assist with this information, having a readable baggage tag is essential for proper transport. In the case that this tag is damaged or missing, the bag will remain at the airport it was dropped off at rather than making it on the correct flight.


With thousands of bags left unclaimed every year, airports all over the country hold auctions where buyers can bid for the luggage. One example of an online auction site is GovDeals. Since bidders are not allowed to open the unclaimed baggage, they must rely solely on instincts to help guide them to making a great bet.


Finally taking that long-awaited vacation? Ditch the department store and head to one of a luggage store specializing in all travel needs from sturdy suitcases to comfy neck pillows. Choose a designer duffel bag that will fit everything for a short weekend getaway, or invest in a rolling suitcase for longer trips out of town. From the Upper West Side to Williamsburg, Brooklyn, these are the best luggage stores in NYC.


The staff were friendly and let you browse in peace until you want help (unlike department stores where they follow you). The care and attention to detail make this luggage specialist store great to compare between choices and I love that they place the luggage on a table and open each one for you when you want a closer look.


An outlet place where you may find discounted luggages or other brands of you want something with more character or design. I went to the Hyundai City Outlets in Dongdaemun which is right next to Doota Mall Dongdaemun.


You will find them sold cheap. Some no-name brand. Cheap as in inexpensive, but also unfortunately as in inferior quality. Often times I was attracted to the low prices and bought them. They last a lot shorter than I expected. The handle would break, wheels break, the little plastic locking latch fall off, etc.. I vowed that I won't buy anything less than the grade of a Samsonite since a while back. You can find some good quality Japanese made suitcases in (ta && ta.queueForLoad ? ta.queueForLoad : function(f, g)document.addEventListener('DOMContentLoaded', f);)(function()ta.trackEventOnPage('postLinkInline', 'impression', 'postLinks-36377608', '');, 'log_autolink_impression');Hong Kong in department stores. I could tell that the material used was tough and sturdy. But the prices were something like HKD $800 upward.


We got a great deal last time where we got two bags virtually for the price of one (of course, this is because we didn't go for the latest and most expensive release) at Jusco, and it was definitely cheaper than the bags we have here. During our most recent trip, we found Wing On to have a better deal.


Looking for suitcases can be a time-consuming process though! We looked at so many different kinds (2-wheel and 4-wheel - I have some 4-wheel haters in my family), big/small wheels, one size is too big/another is too small, what brand, how long is the guarantee, etc. It can be mind-boggling how much choice there is!


Tsim Tsa Tsui is the best place for suitcases many people in our group bought hard cover suitcases at very reasonable price near the mall that had sangeet restaurant and McDonalds inside it (don't remember the name) and there were shops inside chung king mansion as well


Every handle to zip pull is meticulously created by our UK in-house design team and quality tested by our dedicated inspection team to ensure our suitcases proudly remain the trusted luggage companion of millions of travellers globally every year


Monos is a boutique luggage company that really excels when it comes to materials and construction (apart from the notable issue above!). The suitcases are made of high quality materials, with a polycarbonate shell and water resistant nylon material for the interior.


We purchased the compressible packing cubes and really like them. They have a sturdy construction, the material feels durable to the touch, and they fit nicely within the Monos suitcases.


Plenty of people need to buy an extra bag to go home with. Unless you want to purchase a decent quality suitcase, like you'd use for years to come, I don't seethe point of making a big deal out of it. Just grab one wherever you see something that would work. LIke a large sized Hawaiian print duffle bag.


After being filled to the brim, we cram our suitcases into tiny overhead bins/lockers, cargo holds, and hotel shuttles with 20 other bags on top of them. Only then do we drag our suitcases through rugged terrain in remote places around the world, in every kind of weather imaginable.


After years of switching around between suitcases, I became tired of having to choose between weight, durability, and overall quality. The only logical way to have a light but strong suitcase was to switch to aluminum. When I heard about Sterling Pacific and their lightweight suitcases featuring A380 Aluminum, I decided to take the plunge.


Remember too, if you buy more than one, you have more bargaining power. Fake designer suitcases and bags are available here too. Chatuchak Weekend Market is located right next to Mo Chit sky train station and Chatuchak Park and Kamphaeng Phet underground train stations.


Personal comfort devices and carry-on suitcases such as BedBox and RideBox are normally not subject to a specific approval from the aviation authorities. They are brought on board for personal comfort and convenience and can be used at the discretion of the crew, and within their limitations.


For flights where the destination and/or origin airports are not the same for both directions, or if you have a stopover of more than 24 hours, the baggage fee of the furthest point will apply to the entire itinerary.


"Modobag is one of the most innovative and exciting advancements to hit the travel industry since rolling suitcases were introduced in the 1970's. I have test driven the Modobag at heavily-trafficked airports, including O'Hare, JFK and LaGuardia. From the first-time traveler to the veteran flight attendant, there is widespread agreement that Modobag will help make travel more functional and fun. Where once travelers had to run through the airport with heavy gear to catch connections they can now get where they need to be on time, on their Modobag." -Kevin O'Donnell
