As the country begins to open up from Monday 12 April, you may be cautiously planning a trip away (you can check local guidelines here). If you’d like to upgrade your luggage, but you’re short on space, consider this collapsable Eastpak suitcase. It’s now £88, down from £110 at John Lewis.
When we asked jet-setters about their favourite suitcases, the Eastpak Transverz came recommended by author Erin Niimi Longhurst. “I live in a tiny studio apartment, so the fact that this packs away flat is a massive bonus,” she said. The outer shell is made from sturdy canvas, which “collapses so it’s really flat and easy to store.” As well as packing away neatly, the bag is lightweight: “There’s an irritating trend on transatlantic flights recently where they’re weighing cabin bags, so if I know I’m flying an airline that does that, then this is the bag I take with me.” The Eastpak bag also comes with a 30-year warranty. “When one of the internal zips split recently, I was able to send my suitcase off, and it came back all fixed up,” Longhurst aded.
