Important Things To Consider Before Buying Travel Case

And now, let’s take a look at a few key considerations for buying a travel case.

Weight

The weight of your travel case will have a radical impact on its ultimate value. While most people buy this product to save money on renting clubs, they don’t go the extra mile of actually considering how much it will cost to won it.

Remember that most airlines charge you by the pound for the stuff that you bring on the plane. In other words, the heavier your golf bag, the more it winds up costing.

Getting something that is lightweight can save you massive amounts of money over time if you travel often.

Materials

There are both hard and soft-covered golf bag cases. Softer cases tend to be lighter which will save you lots of money in the long run. However, they don’t always do an excellent job of protecting your clubs.

Harder cases have the opposite set of factors. They are very good at protecting your clubs but they tend to be heavy and therefore quite expensive to travel with.

You’ll need to decide for yourself which factor is more important.

Interior

it is not only the interior of the bag but also the exterior that has a bearing on the product’s ultimate performance. Higher-end bags will often feature a padded interior that will help you to keep your clubs from getting scratched or banged up. This can be a very worthwhile feature to get in the long run.

Price

And finally, price. This is a product that can, unfortunately, get fairly pricey. The Samsonite is, in fact, an example of a travel case that is on the pricier side. A really good as may cost you roughly what a new driver does. For buyers that want to keep their budget under control, this may be a bitter pill to swallow.

There are more affordable options available to those on a restrictive budget. However, one additional thing to keep in mind is that a good travel case should last a lifetime. It really is a one-time purchase.


Samsonite Golf Travel Case Review – [ In-Depth]

The Samsonite is a hard-topped case that is sized to fit the needs of virtually any golf bag you could throw at it. Not too big, nor too small, your clubs will fit perfectly within the padded interior for a smooth ride.

It is a fairly heavy bag, but it features wheels that will hopefully make it easier to get around with. It is also on the pricier side which will be somewhat disappointing to buyers on a budget. However, if you want to buy a bag that should last you for many, many years to come it is a great option to consider.

Samsonite Golf Case Features & Benefits

Let’s dive right into it, shall we? Here are some important features and benefits.

Hearty Case

The case exterior is extremely durable. That is the most important, and indeed the most impressive aspect of this piece of equipment. Even the most trying transportation experiences will not overcome the fortified case.

Soft Interior

Equally important to the tough exterior is the gentle interior. It is soft and padded, specifically designed to avoid scratching or damaging your clubs.
The soft exterior will improve the versatility of the bag and improve its longevity.

Easy(Ish) To Transport

Though the weight of this product is fairly restrictive it nevertheless transports very well. This is thanks to the wheels attached to the bottom of the bag. This feature makes it very easy to take around an airport.

 


What People Are Saying About Samsonite Golf Travel Case?

As always, I also looked at what the users had to say to help determine what it was like to own this product in the long term. For the most part, people really dug it. There is no questioning the fact that the bag does a good job of keeping clubs nice and secure.

However, there were some people very bothered by the weight and maneuverability of the unit.

Conclusion

Bottom line? It’s a great product that will be good for people that have the money to pay for it. The exquisite build pretty much clinches the deal as far as I am concerned.

The portability factor is a little bit restrictive but then such is the price that we often pay when investing in something so durable.
