I like to think over the years I have come along way with packing, in my younger years, I used to be the person that would pack ten outfits for every occasion, but over the past few years, I like to think I have the art of packing down. On my last trip to South Africa, I did, however, have quite the extensive packing list and did not feel like my usual backpack would be the most convenient, so I opted for my new Bon Air suitcase from American Tourister in lilac, to match my blog, obviously.
The super lightweight case comes with multiple compartments including a very handy centre divide – meaning I even ditched my faithful packing cubes on this occasion. The compartments made it so much easier to divide my ‘working clothes’ and evening wear and came in especially handy when transporting my dirty muddy boots on the way home.
As standard with most cases now the Bon Air comes with four wheels, making it a dream to run with between terminals at Johannesburg airport after our flight was delayed! And while I do not feel confident commenting on the strength of the case yet as I have only taken it on one trip, it has withstood four flights and being transported in and out of various vans when driving between reserves without a scratch, so I am quietly confident.
Other features include a built in TSA code-lock, which means if you are travelling to the USA your case if needed, it can be opened by security without being damaged. Admittedly I am one of those people that never lock their case, but with the in built padlock, I have no excuse, not to now.
Overall, I was impressed with the American Tourister Bon Air, for someone who travels frequently I definitely think it is worth investing in a decent strong case, and although I still will be taking my trusty backpack on my travels around India in October, for my city break to Budapest next month, this bright fun coloured case will be accompanying me all the way.
