Traveler creates to help others buy the right suitcase

October 9, 2014 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Travelers looking for a new suitcase now have somewhere to turn to help them make a more educated purchasing decision. The Luggage List is a website founded by Chad Simmons and his team of fellow world travelers.

Chad had realized that there wasn’t a one-stop-shop for those looking to educate themselves on various luggage brands and types.

“I realized that because people don’t purchase luggage often, they find themselves lost when trying to upgrade.” Said Simmons, when asked why he wanted to create his new resource site. The Luggage List is a place where people can go to read actual user reviews of various types of luggage. From carry ons to backpacks – from full-sized suitcases to messenger bags, The Luggage List has you covered.

Simmons didn’t want to stop there: “I also wanted the website to provide other resources to travelers,” wrote Simmons. People who are in the market for luggage also have other things on their mind, so it was decided that the site would also provide a number of other pages focused on informing those who travel.

One helpful page on the site is the carry on luggage size chart. There’s nothing worse than flying on a new airline and learning at the gate that your bag won’t fit in the overhead compartment.

Simmons recalled a story that was the basis for assembling such a resource: “I was flying on Frontier Airlines for the first time and watched as customers were instructed to bring their carry on bag up to be placed in a compartment to check the size.” Simmons continued: “one businessman in particular was so perplexed that his carry on, which he always used many times, would not fit. He then was told he had to check his bag and pay a $50 fee to do so.” The very next day Simmons began creating a central resource that listed out every major airline’s size restrictions on carry on luggage.

This is just one of the examples of how The Luggage List can help people, not just by offering luggage reviews, but by actually finding out what travelers want to know, and making it easy for them to learn.
