Leather Suitcases vs Nylon Suitcases

For many less frequent travelers, contemplative matter is what their bag is of concern to, for example, one who travels frequently over medium to long distances. People who travel long distances, for example using airports, are often more likely to consider the quality and durability of materials as well as the style of bag / luggage selection. This type of traveler could also be less pricey and preventative when it comes to buying their bags.

Nylon Suitcases

Since DuPont's Wallace Carothers claimed to have invented nylon in the 1930s, many of its advantages and potential uses have made it and other man-made polymers and materials used in almost every aspect of our lives. The fact that there are man-made materials like nylon provides tremendous flexibility in shapes, sizes and colors that can be created from it, and the design, decoration and printing that can be added to it. The uniform chemical and manufacturing process of nylon and its flexibility as a material means that the finished product can be made very uniform, for example in color, thickness, consistency and quality. Although the nylon strip has strength because of how many fine nylon cords fit together and because of the & # 39; degree & # 39; then it is often thin enough to make it relatively easy to sew or fasten. Manufacture of nylon material used in suitcases is often a large-scale process and this and some of the factors already mentioned mean that nylon is a relatively inexpensive material to use in the manufacture of other items, such as suitcases. This brings the cost of luggage from nylon down to a level that is relatively affordable for everyone. Nylon is a flexible material and relatively durable as long as it does not have sharp parts, heavy weights and uncomfortable shapes / awkwardly shaped parts inside the nylon suitcases. Unfortunately, nylon bags of lesser quality sometimes do not have strong or high quality zippers, seams, straps, handles or pockets and as such can shorten their lifespan due to failure in any of these items and because it is unlikely to be worth it that the price will be repaired on any of them if / when they break.

Leather Bags

In terms of design, the variety of modern designs and features of leather suitcases means that the choice is now incredibly wide. Although the color range is usually not as wide (or the demand for certain colors may not be as wide), the colors used in modern leather bags tend to play the strength of this unique material and bring out the best and most tasteful side of it. Because good, thick leather skins are only large enough to make a relatively small amount of bags, each bag is likely to have its own level of individual items, such as a slight color difference and sometimes & # 39; field mark & ​​# 39;. Since full-grain high-quality leather actually performs minimal processing such as hair removal and tanning, signs / scars made on the animal's skin during life, such as from wire fences, insect bites, etc., may still be evident in some parts of leather. This personality and reliability is part of the beauty and appeal of leather suitcases.

As a material, leather is very strong and can withstand scratches, scratches and blows. It also provides additional protection for the contents of the bag that nylon does not. High quality leather suitcases tend to have very strong stitching, strong zippers that come with leather draws. They also tend to have generous cargo space in these bags and tend to have many other practical and handy pockets, such as tabs with magnetic pins and zipped pockets. Laptop storage pockets are now also common in these bags. The bottom of the high-quality leather suitcases is often protected by a convex metal pen, the attachment points are usually extra secure, and all straps can often be taken with comfort pads. The handles also tend to be very strong with leather comfort wraps in many cases. Obviously, for this kind of quality you might expect to pay more than for their nylon counterparts. However, leather suitcases tend to be much more durable and tiring and over the life of the bag (which literally could be a lifetime) they actually appear to be relatively inexpensive. Leather suitcases also seem to strike the right balance between style and efficiency and never seem out of fashion.
