VIP luggage is synonymous with quality. Every single VIP bag goes through a series of quality tests that test it for reliability & durability. All components are rigorously tested which includes testing of material, zippers, wheels, lugs and handles. Only when the tests approve the quality of the product, the luggage is released for sale. The series of tests conducted by VIP include Tumble Test, Handle Test, Lock Test, Drop Test, and Wheel Test. These tests simulate expected wear and tear of the luggage items to ensure that the items can endure and not sustain any major damages during their expected lifetime.
