Making Hard Suitcases Easy to Deal With

I remember traveling to India as a child with a huge, light-blue, hard-sided suitcase. It seemed like it weighed as much as me and my brothers put together, and it didn't hold all that much stuff, either. My Dad had to lift it with both hands at check-in; my Mom would pay someone to haul it off the carousel on the other end.

Titan has developed a better hard-sided bag.

Hard-sided but it pulls light

By Lylah M. Alphonse, Globe Staff

Most hard-sided suitcases are still heavy and unwieldy. Not so the new Titan. The X2 Flash line from Titan Luggage is lightweight, with smooth-rolling multidirectional wheels, and an ultra-durable, shock-resistant polycarbonate shell. The 22-inch carry-on (about $440) has plenty of room for your overnight gear and still fits neatly into a standard overhead compartment. It opens like a clamshell, and its zippered compartment and detachable toiletries bag keep everything organized. You can find it at Bretts Luggage, 435 Boston Post Road, Sudbury (978-440-9400, The series also includes a hard-sided laptop case, a beauty case, and 24-, 26-, and 29-inch rolling suitcases. In eye-popping colors like taxi-cab yellow and lime green, you'll definitely know which bag on the carousel is yours. [More]
