The term hand luggage or cabin baggage (also commonly referred to as carry-on in North America) refers to the type of luggage that passengers are allowed to carry along in the passenger compartment of an aeroplane instead of moving to the cargo compartment or in other words, checking it in.
Check-in luggage are larger pieces of luggage which are not permitted to be carried in the cabin of an aeroplane and have to be delivered to an airline for transportation in the hold of an aircraft, which means it is inaccessible to the passenger during the flight or ride. The dimensions and weight specifications for check-in luggage differ from airline to airline.

As the name suggests, hard side luggage is made of a hard plastic or metal material and is hard to touch. All hard luggage are durable and therefore offer the best protection of the items inside. The most popular hard material is Polypropylene (PP), polycarbonate (PC), ABS and aluminium.
Soft side luggage is made of fabric and is soft to touch. This luggage usually offers more flexibility (can be expandable with external pockets, etc).

What is ABS, PC and PP luggage?
ABS, PC and PP are different kinds of plastic used to make hard luggage.
Polycarbonate (PC) is a moulded thermoplastic and is a very popular material for hard luggage. It is lighter than aluminium but still very durable and offers more style choices in colours and patterns. Polycarbonate is extremely resistant to impact. Upon impact, the material flexes to absorb the impact and then flexes back to its original shape, making polycarbonate luggage extremely resilient to rough handling.
Polypropylene (PP) is also a type of thermoplastic polymer and the lightest of all the thermoplastic products, making it ideal material for any lightweight luggage range. It is also very resilient. Polypropylene is great choice for those travellers that want good protection in as lightweight form as possible.
ABS (acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene) is a common thermoplastic. ABS is lighter than polycarbonate but not as durable. It is also the cheapest hard material, meaning it is popular in the less expensive hard-sided luggage ranges. It is frequently added to other stronger luggage materials like polycarbonate. The combined material is more durable than ABS on its own but also lighter and cheaper than polycarbonate on its own.

How should the luggage be cleaned?
Hard side Luggage: To clean hard side luggage, we recommend using a gentle soap and warm water, rinsing well. If you would like to wax the case after cleaning, any good silicone-base automobile or furniture polish will preserve the lustre and add resistance to the covering.
Soft side Luggage: To clean soft side luggage, we recommend spot cleaning with a mild soap (i.e. dish soap) and water. If this is not successful, try a product used for spot removal on clothing such as Vanish, or using a foam type cleaner used to clean car mats or automobile carpets (sold at car parts stores). If the luggage has an offensive odour, use a vinegar (1 part) and water (5 parts) mixture. This may take the odour out but it will then need to be aired out for a few days.s
How should the luggage be stored?
Extremes of temperature, as well as the extremes of humidity will tend to age luggage.

Followings storage where extreme temperatures prevail, we recommend cleaning the luggage (see cleaning instructions above).
