As the amber list guidelines change (you can read up on the latest guidance here), you may be considering a last-minute holiday abroad this summer. But if you’re tired of trying to stash your cabin bag under your bed (or on top of your wardrobe), consider an expert-recommended collapsible option. 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.”
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. The Eastpak Tranverz is currently 20 percent off in the John Lewis sale (in fact, several Eastpak options are on sale, along with Samsonite suitcases and John Lewis brand suitcases) – it’s now £88, down from £110.
