Delsey Luggage Review
Hardside European Designers
Europe is often viewed as the ‘home of chic’, and it’s no different when it comes to Delsey luggage. Products from European designers seem to hold an air of exoticness next to their American cousins. And since entering the luggage market in the 1970s, Delsey Luggage has become a driving force behind the European luggage scene.
As the largest luggage manufacturer in Europe, they produce luggage solutions that are creative and functional, while providing a certain uniqueness that will be appreciated by travelers who are looking for something just that little bit different.
Being one of the early innovators of hardside luggage, Delsey (www.delsey.com) has continued to develop this winning formula over the years and currently makes some of the best hardsided luggage on the market. They have received rave reviews worldwide for the solidness and durability of their products. They also design great soft sided and casual luggage.
While the Delsey Helium Lite luggage collection and also the Delsey Intrigue luggage set are highly popular with consumers, there are other ranges which are worth noting.
For those looking for a set with the ‘x factor’, there are the Charisma, Wave and Volume Fresh lines make people take notice. They all feature fun, funky and unique designs that have not been utilized on the luggage market before. Female travelers will appreciate these collections, as well as the Alinea line that is specifically designed for them.
Men will lean more towards the more masculine collections such as the Comby, Mobility and First sets. These lines featured more hard lines and masculine colors that cater to both sexes, but will be appreciated more by men.
Creativity and innovation combined with designer chic
The creativeness and innovation stretch through to Delsey’s casual ranges, where they have luggage pieces that suit the adventure traveler (also commonly known as a backpacker!).
Not just a creative, brightly colored company, Delsey stands by their quality with a testing program that makes sure their products are hard-wearing and resilient. For example, the locks on their cases will stand up to being opened and closed 15,000 times (which equates to five years daily use); the wheels are designed to travel several hundred kilometers under weight and the suitcase shells are tested so that a mass of two kilograms falling from a height of two meters suffers no damage.
While Delsey luggage is moderately priced, customers certainly get their money’s worth with these products. The company has a range of dealers worldwide for customers to purchase their products from (note that not all ranges are available in each country). A number of online dealers also stock these products, as well as certain lines of discount Delsey luggage.
