Imagine this: You're walking through the airport, about to check in your luggage and you realize you’ve packed your headphones in the suitcase. The prospect of sitting on a 6 hour flight without anything to watch or listen to is mortifying. So how do you find them quickly and efficiently? You don’t. You need to lie your suitcase on the floor and pretty much ruin your perfectly folded clothes and neatly packed accessories in order to get the headphones, and anything else you need, out. Let’s rewind this scenario a bit, and picture how much easier your life would be if your suitcase literally popped up and you could grab the headphones from the shelf you put them on. This is where the Pull Up Suitcase comes into play (use the code Krista100 for a huge €100 off any suitcase).
As someone who is constantly travelling, I often find it very difficult to find a piece of luggage that will suit all of my needs. In recent years I’ve actually decided to forgo suitcases altogether and opt for backpacks as they seem more convenient. The problems I’ve been having recently with backpacks and even shoulder bags is that my electronics aren’t protected all that well, my clothes end up in a mess, and I can’t find things that I need without rummaging through my entire bag. Carrying everything on your back can also be a nightmare if you’re travelling with a lot of clothes and heavier items.
On my recent trip to Spain I had planned to visit a lot of destinations in Andalusia, which of course meant packing and unpacking my backpack constantly. I don’t mind doing this every once in a while, but doing it once a week can get a bit tedious. While trying to research some better luggage options online, I was so shocked to come across the Pull Up Suitcase because of its portable wardrobe design. I actually didn’t believe it was a real suitcase, and ended up visiting countless websites to check out its authenticity. This Pull Up Suitcase is so handy, I even take it on road trips with me - because why not?
Here is my review of the Pull Up Suitcase, as well as 6 reasons why I would recommend ditching your average luggage and investing in the Pull Up Suitcase, whether you’re an international traveller or like to keep things local:
1. Built-In Shelves
The Pull Up Suitcase pulls up into 6 shelves which means you can easily divide your clothes and whatever else you’re packing into sections - this is organized travel at its best. I’ve honestly not unpacked this case once since it arrived, I just pick my outfit for the day and put everything back in its proper place when I get back. It’s like having your own personal closet with you while you travel - and who doesn’t want that? I never use hotel storage spaces anyways, so this suitcase is ideal for me and keeps my room nice and tidy. And when you’re not using it, it closes to the height of a normal suitcase, but you can still access the contents inside using the front flap. Its slim design also means it takes up minimal space, so say goodbye to lying your suitcase on the floor or the bed and having to spread your clothes out all over the place in order to pack. The future of the suitcase is here and I love it.
2. Packing Cubes
The Pull Up Suitcase is not only a suitcase that turns into a closet, it also comes with a series of packing cubes - as if this suitcase wasn’t making your life easier already. I’ve never actually tried packing with packing cubes before, so I didn’t know if they would fit my clothes in properly. But I was very surprised at how much each one held, and how easy it was to pull them off of the shelf and get what I was looking for. Bonus: Nothing moved around inside of them! It also comes with a toiletry bag which you can hang up in your bathroom without ever having to physically take all your toiletries out of the bag to find them, as well as a garment bag if you’re travelling with suits or dresses. This is the best organized luggage I’ve ever come across, and I doubt you'll find a better one either.
3. Condenses and Keeps Everything Well Protected
One thing I’m always concerned about is how safe my things will be inside a suitcase, because we all know how much they get thrown around at airports, and for some reason people like to run into my luggage and step on things all the time. The Pull Up Suitcase is incredibly sturdy with a hard-shell top, so you can rest assured your items won’t arrive damaged. Despite the fact that it’s a piece of luggage with shelves inside, when the suitcase is condensed everything inside is very well protected and stays in its place. It also comes with a built in locking system for added security.
4. Doubles as a Table
Speaking of the hard-shell top, it’s perfectly flat and wide enough to fit a laptop on or a notebook for writing. So not only do you have a portable wardrobe with you, you also get a desk! I’ve used this feature on the Pull Up Suitcase several times when I’ve had a genius idea for a blog post and have had nowhere to balance my laptop on. I’m terrible at writing or typing if I don’t have a sturdy base.
Cheeky confession: I’ve also used the Pull Up Suitcase during a road trip as a table for my lunch - multi-functional! I'm sure you could think of many ways to use its desk feature, but this seemed much more practical than me sitting and eating my lunch in the car.
5. Laptop Compartment
I don’t know anyone who packs their laptop in their checked-in luggage, but the Pull Up Suitcase has a handy laptop compartment at the back of the suitcase where you can put your laptop while you’re walking through the airport (or anywhere really) so you don’t have to carry it. It’s very well padded and I use it to hold my laptop while I’m wheeling the case around or driving between destinations instead of putting it in my backpack. This compartment also has space for pens and a notebook.
6. Easy To Wheel
The Pull Up Suitcase can fit a lot in it. And I mean a lot. So naturally it’s not going to be the lightest suitcase ever if you have to lift it up. Luckily, the suitcase is equipped with the best wheels I’ve ever come across on a suitcase, and regardless of how heavy the case really is, it feels like you’re pushing an empty one. I always have terrible luck with one wheel being stuck or pulling the case in another direction, and I’m sure a lot of you can relate to that. These four wheels rotate very smoothly, so when you’re in a rush and constantly changing the direction you’re going in, the suitcase will always stay at your side. If you prefer using only two wheels, it works perfectly for that too.
Like many travel bloggers or people who love to travel, I’m always on the lookout for the next best travel accessory and travel bags - something that will make my trips a little easier. After investing in this fantastic portable wardrobe-style suitcase, I definitely won’t be looking for a new piece of luggage anytime soon. The Pull Up Suitcase’s unique suitcase with its packing shelves, easy manoeuvrability, and ease of accessibility is a one of a kind piece of luggage designed for any level of traveller, and will make your journeys and hotel stays that much easier. And these are just some of the many incredible features that the Pull Up Case has too!
