Lately I've been looking into accessories to help lessen or at least slow down the damage on my suitcases.
I've so far looked into "luggage covers" and have found that these are not so easy to get a hold of here in New Zealand. I've very fond of Loqi's range of luggage covers but it is kind of hard for me to get these since I've found that very few NZ stores stock them and it's impossible for me to get them locally or online. I would need to travel to Auckland or Christchurch.
I'm resorting to finding other products that are similar yet more readily available across NZ. Waterproofing isn't a big deal for me and I don't think I would want my luggage to look like someone's couch covered in pvc. My suitcase is a bright color and not a hard-case so I'm mostly interested in protecting it from general scuffs which I'm finding really difficult to clean.

Most airports now offer shrink wrapping of cases before check in for a small fee.

This puts yards of plastic around the case to protect from scuffs as well as intrusive inspections/thefts etc.

My recommendation is buy luggage from Red Oxx in the USA. Lifetime warranty. I have 2, one of which they custom built for me, and neither looks any more scuffed than it did the day they arrived.

Luggage is meant to protect its contents, why worry about it getting scuffed?

What about all the admiring looks when that old carousel gets going?
