Zipperless luggage : A new way to lock up

In today’s climate of heightened airport security concerns, the need for innovative and reliable luggage lockup solutions has never been more significant. Samsonite, a pioneer in luggage innovation, offers zipperless luggage as a secure and practical alternative, enhancing the lifespan of your travel companion.

The Vulnerability of Zipper Closures

There has been much talk on social media and in the news about airport security and luggage of late, particularly with the recent issues at OR Tambo airport thanks to TV and radio personality Anele Mdoda. As a result, the need for innovation and durable luggage lock-up is at the top of the minds of many travellers. Samsonite is a proudly innovative company and we know that your luggage needs the latest and best in safety devices.

Renowned consumer journalist Wendy Knowler chatted with us and subsequently wrote about the issue.  Knowler also spoke about how zips are the weakest point of luggage. So, what do you if you want other options to lock up your bag? Well, international travel journalist Rena Behar recently wrote an interesting article about zipperless luggage and we couldn’t agree more.
