Tips from a packing professional

How to pack your luggage smarter

23. June 2020

by Dag Christian Holm

We are approaching the summer holidays, and even though many flights are cancelled, cabin bags will undoubtedly be used frequently for upcoming weekend trips and holidays – even if the journey will be by train or car. Magnus Nilsson, Sales Manager at TUMI shares his best packing tips to BusinessClass.com readers.

On flight trips, many passengers want to bring their cabin bag on board – especially if you have a tight airport connection. Since checked-in luggage sometimes risks not coming along. Meanwhile, airlines are struggling with passengers carrying onboard more than what they are allowed to. Generally, it is permitted to carry an 8 kg suitcase of an approved size, often 55 x 40 x 23 cm on board. Therefore, it is especially important to prioritise when packing, but how is it done most smartly? Evidently, there is no clear answer to this, but Magnus Nilsson, sales manager at TUMI, has knowledge in this area.

 

 

-We worked hard to create products that work best for our customers. It should be simple and convenient – regardless of the type of journey, Nilsson says, and points out that all pockets, handles, zippers, and storage are well-thought-out in every detail.

-We created two videos that we hope BusinessClass readers can benefit from before their next packaging. In stores that sell our products, employees are also happy to share their knowledge of the «packaging theme», he says.

 

 

– In general, we always recommend that you use packaging bags – they are available in different variants and give you a clear overview. Buy them in different colors so you quickly find what you are looking for. Also, be careful when you roll and fold your clothes together so that you pack the least amount of air possible. If you bring a suit, make sure to turn your arms inwards the suit, and do not place heavier objects on top of the suit. Heavy items, such as shoes, are best placed on the outer edge of the suitcase – alongside with toiletries and other small items. For example, I recommend using the space inside the shoes for storing small items, Mr. Nilsson concludes.
