Karrimor Global Equator 40

So I’ve just got back from my trip to Morocco where I decided to try out a new piece of travel kit. I went for a week on a rather cosy EasyJet flight so decided that hand luggage was all I really needed.

So is this travel case good for short trips or when you are travelling light. Well yes it is. When I am buying a piece of luggage for travel, I always make sure that I am comfortable with the bag’s material, weight, capacity, security and sturdiness. I can say I am happy with the Karrimor Global Equator 40 Wheeled Travel Case.

The Karrimor Global Equator has an easy access front compartment which was ideal for me to slip my iPad into. The inner design is great with a large main compartment and zipped inner pockets. The case comes complete with compression straps and inner clip locks for that added bit of security.

I think that the Karrimor Global Equator’s greatest asset is that it is very strong and sturdy. As you can imagine, the streets of Marrakech aren’t the best so the wheels took a beating and the case itself is rigid and has a shell that offers your belongings a great deal of protection (in particular my laptop). The spine and base really does look and feel secure to me.

It’s worth mentioning that the pulley handle is pretty rugged and feels strong. There is also a storable shoulder harness. The case weighs 2.8kg, has a 40 litre capacity and has the dimensions of H54 x W35 x D20cm which was well within EasyJet’s hand luggage restrictions and reportedly within the limits set by the likes of British Airways and Virgin (please check with your airline yourself).

You can get  the Karrimor Global Equator 40 Wheeled Travel Case from Amazon but if you really want to stand out there is also a pink version of the Karrimor Global Equator.

    I’m about to fly with mine and pretty nervous about it being too big for hand luggage – so with a couple of hours before I go, I’m taking this as gospel…
