Endurance test passed

TEST RESULT: This is what these two models Travelite AirBase 77cm (with a final grade of 2.6) and the Titan Highlight 75cm (with a final grade of 2.9) do in the test, the good workmanship scores particularly well here.

Tough test passed: Fully loaded suitcases and trolleys have to withstand impacts as well as rain and bumps in the Stiftung Warentest test. After all, the suitcases and trolleys should not only meet the highest requirements in the laboratory. Rollers, telescopic handles and the like have to be able to withstand a lot for long walks at airports or train stations and long distances on the luggage conveyor belt.

Flexible & well processed
Soft luggage tested by Stiftung Warentest 2021

More flexible in handling, storage space with extra compartments, perfectly suited for car, train or bus travel: This is what distinguishes the soft luggage in the test. Here, too, the durability, handling, environmental properties, workmanship and, for example, ease of opening, packing, pulling or pushing were assessed.

TEST RESULT: The following three models from our range scored good or satisfactory: Delsey Montmatre Air 77 cm (overall score: 2.2), Travelite Crosslite 77cm (2.5) and American Tourister Holiday Heat 77 cm (3.1).
