It’s this time of the year again where holiday plans are in full swing as we seek a getaway from our work. Travelling has been made easier with the advent of technology, providing us with convenience and one less issue to fret about upon booking our transport and accommodations. However, we are often stuck seeking a suitcase that gives us the luxury of space for our shopping goodies as well as being user-friendly for our travel needs.
Australian startup, July, aims to disrupt the suitcase industry with a range of suitcases that combine durability, functionality, elegant design, and premium features typically only seen on luxury products—all at an economical price. July will be making its international expansion debut in Singapore, and it will feature the award-winning Carry On among its range of high-quality suitcases.
July was founded by Athan Didaskalou and Richard Li who were working on their startups—a coffee business and an online furniture startup respectively. Realizing a need to enhance the features of a suitcase to give travellers a better experience, they saw July as a business opportunity to capitalise on this industry.
July suitcases feature an aerospace-grade 100% German polycarbonate shell that can withstand rough airport baggage handlers. The unique eggshell-shaped edges, scratch-proof texture and custom-constructed aluminium corner bumpers are added protection to ensure that your luggage remains durable for the long run without sustaining any major damage.
Have you ever been caught in a situation where you’re waiting for your flight and your phone runs out of juice? To make things worse, there are no power points in sight. Worry no more. July suitcases are fitted with an airline-approved in-built ejectable power bank with USB and USB-C ports to charge your devices. Searching for an unused charging port will be but a distant memory.
July’s multi-stop, telescopic handles adjust to your ideal height and comfort for you to tug your suitcase along. Coupled with the double-wheel system that July suitcases are fitted with, the suitcases can glide effortlessly and quietly across all surfaces.
To make packing a breeze, travellers can look forward to the internal July Y-Strap Compression system which creates more room to fit more of your belongings. Inside, there’s built-In water and smell-resistant laundry bag for you to store your soiled clothes without worrying about nasty odours lingering over your fresh, unused clothes.
The bag makes organising your luggage neat, systematic, and easy to access. It is available for purchase separately at S$55 onwards.
The range of suitcases are available in Carry On (40 litres), Checked (80 litres) and Checked Plus (110 litres) with prices starting from S$295.
July offers monogramming service, adding a personal touch to your cases and making luggage mixups on the baggage carousel a thing of the past. Shoppers can enjoy free monogramming on any July luggage purchase across December 2019 on top of free shipping, a 100-day trial, and lifetime warranty worldwide.
