SUSTAINABLE ALSO MEANS LASTING A LIFETIME

Our suitcase passes all the same quality tests of polluting plastic suitcases with flying colours – but does so using sustainable, natural materials. In fact, our unique shell benefits from the natural attributes of its material – where plastic cracks and breaks, the shell is more flexible and will not crack as plastic does.


We know how important durability is in luggage – so we use only the best of the best components. Our wheels are from the highest quality Japanese manufacturer. Our zippers are from renowned manufacturers known for their durability.

To put our words into action, we put our products to the test.

THE TUMBLE TEST

The KIN CARRY-ON is loaded with 16 kg and placed inside a rotating chamber full of obstacles designed to maximize high drops and hard impacts – simulating rough handling during transport.

Our CARRY-ON passes with flying colours.

THE MILEAGE TEST

A load of up to 25 kg is placed inside the case, with an additional 7 kg of weight on the telescopic handle. The suitcase is angled at 45° and rolled at a speed of 4 km/h on a specialized treadmill with bumps to simulate uneven terrain. This test is run for the equivalent of 32 km.

This bag can travel a lifetime.

THE HANDLE TEST

The suitcase is loaded with up to 25 kg, and suspended in the air by the telescopic handle. It is lifted, dropped, and then suddenly stopped by the telescopic handle after freefalling a specified distance.

This cycle is repeated 300 times.

THE ABRASION TEST

The suitcase is loaded with up to 25 kg and placed with all four wheels in contact with two rollers spinning at a speed equivalent to 4 km/h. The rollers have bumps to simulate uneven terrain.

This test is run for the equivalent of 32 km.

THE DROP TEST

The suitcase is stored at -12°C for 4 hours before testing, and then loaded with up to 25 kg inside. It is then dropped on each surface, edge, and corner from a height of 90 cm.

This bag survives even the toughest travels.

THE ZIP TEST

Our ultra-strength, double-coil zipper is placed in a pulling machine to test its resilience to wear and tear.

We run 2.000 cycles to be sure it will never break.
