I wanted to introduce to you today, a suitcase company, and style of a suitcase that couldn’t be more me. Short break, long haul or returning to uni – Rock Luggage has a range of options to suit(case) a range of needs. This London-based family business has been fine-tuning its portfolio of bags, luggage, and travel accessories for over forty years.
Robust and Light
It was Rock’s hard luggage range that first grabbed my attention. I recently (between lockdowns I should stress!) used the vintage medium case in black from their range for a short getaway. I was sturdy and tough, and I was surprised at both how light and deceptively spacious it was. Rock also has a great selection of EasyJet cabin bags.
My Rock case caught a few envious glances upon arrival at my hosts’ place. It’s very competitively priced at around £185 which for the quality is great value for money. If you hurry though, there’s a sale on as I write this, so you could grab yourself even more of a bargain.
What I particularly liked is the mix of the traditional and new styling. The main casing is tough in a contemporary black matt finish, but each corner of the case is reinforced in a vintage style. The handles offer more than a nod to previous eras as well. Squint and you can imagine Cary Grant rushing along a railway platform with a Rock case…
My Rock case has an easy-to-use (TSA approved) combination lock. It also features internal compartments to separate clothes, straps to keep items in place and several pockets for accessories. The case comes on four sets of two wheels and has a retractable handle that will extend comfortably to suit someone well over six foot.
Oh, and it came with a 15-year manufacturers’ guarantee – nothing like having confidence in your luggage, that, let’s face it, might take a bit of knocking about over the years. There’s a reason they’re called Rock. Very smart, very practical, with trimmings that say this is something that isn’t going to go out of fashion, roll on the next time I can use it.
