There are few things more frustrating than arriving home after a long and tiring flight, only to open your suitcase and discover that you picked up the wrong one at the baggage reclaim. It is not just the hassle of schlepping back to the airport to effect a changeover, but the fact that someone’s also been rooting through your dirty undies without permission.
Luckily there are now options you can adopt to minimise the risk. You can paint your fancy Samsonite bright day-glo pink with household emulsion paint, or tie a very large and unmistakable green ribbon on every handle. Or you can be a touch cooler and buy yourself one of these impact-resistant SuitSuit Cases, which come in a delightful range of designs, impossible to mistake on the conveyer belt.
My personal favourite is the washing machine, because let’s face it, it’s the one thing we secretly wish we could take on vacation, instead of relying on those pesky ice cold rivers. Anyhoo, you can be a proud owner for $186.79/£119.99.
