Carry on suitcases are loaded with 4kg of clothing and check in suitcases are packed with 15kg of clothing. We then subject our suitcases to 300 rounds of our lift and drop test, then grade the damage. Suitcases with no damage receive 100%. Those with substantial damage (for example, are missing wheels) score 0%.
Our testers conduct several technical tests to assess each suitcase's performance. The performance score is made up of the lift and drop test (60%), stability test (20%), rain test (10%) and puncture test (10%).
