The Ultimate Guide to Buying a Soft Trunk

The Ultimate Guide to Buying a Soft Trunk

The soft trunk is a very useful piece of luggage in many situations. Summer camp, air travel, family trips and more. Similar to a duffel bag, but more square shaped, the soft trunk can pack a lot of items and still keep them relatively neat.

So you’ve decided you want to buy a soft trunk but which soft trunk? With wheels or without? What size? What type? Should I buy a soft trunk at all? As is the case with so many other products, there are many different types of soft trunks to consider each with their own unique attributes. Sometimes choosing a soft trunk can be a bigger headache than actually packing it!  

This short guide, based on years of experience selling soft trunks to happy customers, tries to breakdown the 3 basic elements involved in choosing a soft trunk and provides 3 simple questions you should ask yourself to help you make an informed decision.

If this description in some way resembles your life in the past few weeks, keep reading. We’ve thought about 4 things that you might just have forgotten to consider (in order of necessity).
