Best Carry-on Bag I’ve ever used
If you’re in the market for new luggage you should definitely have a look at this Australian Brand - July.
We were out to get new luggage for my partner as her old stuff was heavy and wearing out. I looked at reviews for all of the “smart” carry-on bags that I could find and tried to leave price out of it just so I could see what was out there to start. After about a week of searching and reading I decided that there really wasn’t much difference between most of the offerings and that it really comes down to the look of the bag, quality of c...omponents and size of the battery pack. July was a brand that kept coming up on my radar. Whether this was clever marketing through search engine targeting or the fact that the things I was looking for (battery pack, light weight, good warranty) were all found in their marketing is hard to say. Regardless, after a bit more research I decided to take a chance on this new brand (as opposed to something more established like Samsonite) and ordered the Carry-on and Checked bag. I chose the Burgundy colour and took up their free monogramming and shipping offer in Nov 2019. The combined package cost $615 also bought a set of their packing cells for $55 making the total $670 delivered. Not the cheapest stuff on the market but I generally believe that you get what you pay for and was hoping for the same here. Shipping was expected to be 2-4 weeks due to the Monogramming and I was pleasantly surprised when the bags showed up after just 8 days!!! - For reference I have had a set of Briggs-Riley luggage for the past 10yrs and they retail for $500-$600 per bag. They have the world’s best luggage warranty but they are very heavy. The bags come packaged in July branded cardboard boxes and are wrapped in a cloth July branded bag inside of that. Very pleasingly, July did not use ANY single use plastic so 5 star to July for being an environmentally conscious company in this respect alone. The unboxing had a nice premium feel which was very welcome as I bought these bags for my partner as an early Christmas present to use on a vacation we had planned over the holidays. The Burgundy colour that I ordered was true to colour no the website and the Monogramming came up as expected as well (see pictures below)
