Like most frequent travellers, we believe it’s important to pack lightly, even when (like we were) on a road-trip and there are no baggage weight restrictions.

The right luggage can make all the difference and we were glad to each have an American Tourister Granada with us. It’s well made, lightweight and its wheels roll smoothly. It comes with useful built-in compartments for extra space. It can be expanded to fit in all those last-minute souvenirs which means you can pack more without worrying about finding another bag. It also has a fixed combination lock for additional security.

It’s ideal for annual vacations, since it accommodates several days’ worth of clothing and comes with a bottom handle making it easy to handle.

Since we were carrying a laptop, cameras and gadgets to keep The Wanderers community updated on our trip, the Achiever backpack from American Tourister proved to be extremely handy. The cushioned compartment helps to keep the laptop safe from any sudden impact. Plenty of compartments make it easy to keep contents organized and compact. The back padding makes it comfortable to carry the backpack around (even when there was a lot of walking involved). It’s roomy, rugged and loaded with thoughtful conveniences like a side pocket for water bottle and an organizer for keeping pen drives and chargers. American Tourister offers an 18-month warranty on the Achiever backpack.
