Authors comments
The idea of suitcases in different colors evolved after a friend "threatened" the user when he brought five black suitcases on a car trip. Each time the friend went to get something from the trunk they quarreled. They went to Bauhaus, bought four suitcases in different colors - problem solved. In addition to the benefits of different colors, they are lightweight and can also be used as support to lean on in order to maintain balance when taking photos or playing the harmonica (see associated tip), mm.
