Benefits of Wheeled Briefcases
Double up with another Bag
The design of wheeled briefcases is such that you can place another bag on top and still manage to move around easily. If you are traveling for a week or so on business, you will need to pack a change of clothes, personal utilities and other travel items. For efficient movement, you can place all these items in the spinner briefcase and carry your laptop and documents in a laptop backpack at the same time without wearing yourself out.
Carry a Heavier Load
Moving around the airport with a heavy suitcase containing all your work documents isn’t an easy feat. However, with a rolling business bag, navigating the airport is not only easy, but you get to look stylish while at it. A roller briefcase is also a great investment for a busy but stylish lawyer who needs to move heavy case files from one courtroom to the next.
A wheeled briefcase is not limited for business traveling alone. It can be used to move heavy files by a lawyer, salesperson and even by marketers as they move around making presentations. The roller bags have compartments that can hold clothes, your laptop and travel essentials instead of dragging a large suitcase around the airport. Its multi-functional design is a great plus for these work bags, and it’s part of the reason why every business traveler wants to own one.
What Material is Best for your Wheeled Briefcase
As you shop around for the best wheeled briefcase to meet your needs, one key thing that you will need to consider is the material used to make it. The most common materials used to make work bags are vinyl, nylon, polyester and genuine leather. Let’s explore the strengths and weaknesses of each of these materials.
Vinyl is loved for its high tensile strength, making it ideal for making wheeled briefcases that's designed for carrying heavy loads. It also has a beautiful exterior that doesn’t stain or scratch easily. Maintaining a rolling briefcase made of vinyl is also easy since all you need is to wipe it with a dry cloth. Vinyl is also known to be flame resistant and is available in a wide variety of textures to suit every style. Compared to leather and other materials, vinyl is quite affordable yet highly durable.
However, once damaged, vinyl is hard to repair, and you may need to buy another rolling bag once this happens. Secondly, wheeled briefcases made of vinyl are easy to imitate, and you may end buying a cheap-looking knock off.
Polyester as a fabric is loved for its thickness and insulation properties, ensuring that the contents of your rolling briefcase are safe from any damage. When treated right, polyester doesn’t shrink or lose shape. It’s also quick drying which makes cleaning your rolling briefcase on wheels easy and hustle free.
On the downside, polyester is not biodegradable making it a huge pollutant to the environment. The materials are also easily damaged when exposed to high temperatures. Therefore, it’s not ideal for making briefcases that will be used in hot areas.
Nylon’s lightweight nature and exceptional strength have made it a great choice for wheeled briefcases. Pluses for nylon are its elasticity which means that your roller bag can easily stretch to accommodate more items. It’s also resistant to flames when treated well, and it doesn’t stain or get dirty easily. Nylon is loved for its high resistance to corrosion which makes it highly durable and will provide you with a lengthy service.
However, when it comes to dyeing, the material is not the best. For this reason, products made of nylon are limited in terms of color and designs.
One key benefit of picking a wheeled briefcase made of genuine leather is that it looks good and stamps your authority as a style icon. Leather is also highly durable and doesn’t puncture easily, even under heavy use. You can own a leather rolling tote for years without the item losing its luster. A wheeled briefcase made of genuine leather screams elegance and timeless style. Leather allows for rich craftsmanship, especially on the stitching.
Whether the leather is natural or dyed, you will always ooze timeless class as you travel around in a leather wheeled briefcase. At Alpine Swiss, our leather has been sourced using eco-friendly and sustainable methods meant to protect the environment.
One of the main disadvantages of leather is that if not well cared for, it may develop cracks due to dryness. Secondly, wheeled briefcases made of genuine leather may cost a bit more, but the service they give you is worth every cent.
How to Take Care of your Wheeled Briefcase
Good care and maintenance of your stuff including rolling briefcase will ensure that it remains in top-notch condition. For wheeled briefcases made of hard material, you can gently clean them using soap and warm water. For soft-sided materials such as polyester and genuine leather, always use the right products such as a conditioner. Store your briefcase away from extreme temperatures or any excess humidity.
When traveling, avoid pulling your wheeled briefcase on tough terrain since this may wear out the castor wheels. Better yet, don’t overload your briefcase since it may make maneuvering the airport hectic.
