RETAIL | As part of this year’s Virtual Travel Expo 2020, I was invited to sample a selection of products launching in travel retail across the globe in 2020 and 2021. A very different year to previous years indeed, but the world keeps turning.

When I saw that Victorinox was exhibiting, I was super keen to see what they had to offer. I’ve been a fan of the Swiss brand’s products for a long time, and have owned (and continue to own) their pocket knives and luggage.

The team at Victorinox sent me a carry on piece from their recently launched “Airox” range of travel luggage. Made of 100% pure, break-resistant polycarbonate, the Airox Hardside carry-on style weighs 2.3kg and has passed the highest testing standards in the industry. The case features an internal Butterfly Opening System, with two divider walls opening towards the outside, which enables customers to pack both sides of the suitcase without the mesh curtains getting in the way.

External features such as a lightweight telescopic monopole handle system, and quiet 60mm Hinomoto wheels with silent-run Lisof tyres ensure a smooth, stable journey. Additional features, which further underline the high level of functionality, include long-lasting YKK zippers, Travel Sentry Approved recessed combination lock and an Access Lock Combination Recovery Program. Like all Victorinox Travel Gear cases, each piece comes with a 1 + 10 years warranty.

The full Airox Hardside range consists of three Carry-On sizes, a medium and a large suitcase. Customers can choose from three colours: orange, dark blue and light blue.

Looking at the suitcase and playing around with it, the quality is clear. It got me thinking about my trip to Switzerland last year, and itching to go back. While international travel is going to be off the cards for Australians for a while yet, I’ll definitely be taking this suitcase on my domestic travels across Australia. And who knows, maybe I’ll be able to take it as far away as Switzerland in 2021. Here’s hoping.
