When you need to pack the kitchen sink

When you're going on holiday with the family, you need to make every last square inch of luggage space to make sure you pack efficiently and don't get overloaded, but at the same time pack enough for every eventuality!

In this video expert stylist Helen Boyle shares some smart packing tips with Kirsty Tye, one of our Oxford Street Partners. She uses one of the Cordoba Duo cases incorporating Advanced Hybrid Technology (AHT).

AHT combines the strength and durability of a hard-sided case with the lightweight and expandable benefits of soft side luggage. High impact areas around the edges of the case have extra tough hard panels to protect the case from wear and tear, but the main advantage is that even the largest size of the cases is wonderfully light in the first place - so that the packing for a family won't weigh you down.
