TRS Ballistic Line by Club Glove: Review
The TRS Ballistic luggage is constructed of Invista™ Cordura® 1050 denier U.S. woven military spec nylon ballistic fabric which is the world’s most ideal material for high-end luggage. It has up to two times the abrasion resistance and four times the tear resistance compared to other premium brands using 1680 D fabrics, and the TRS luggage is up to nine times stronger than polyester fabrics. The ultra-durable CG (Club Glove) wheel base and retractable handle provide an ideal balance and convenience of traveling with one, two, or all three pieces.
Other features of the TRS Ballistic luggage include premium YKK® zippers and ITW Nexus® buckles, internal webbing with superior tensile strength, 12 packing modules (in three sizes), and all three pieces fit inside each other when not in use to minimize storage space.
One of the things I immediately noticed about the luggage was the durability. This system seems almost indestructible, and it seemed as if I was doing some kind of covert operation with how tough and slick it was. With all the gear and necessities needed on some of the outdoor adventures I take, sturdy luggage is needed so any damage can be avoided to the gear. After seeing and feeling the material that the TRS Ballistic luggage was made of, I felt that the luggage itself would not be damaged as well.
Packing with the TRS line was probably the most organized I’ve ever been. The packing modules actually made it so much nicer and everything seemed to be in much better order than folding or tossing everything in the case only to have to dig it out when you reach your destination. Being able to keep all my canyoneering and hiking gear and clothing separate from my everyday clothing was really very useful. I could just pull out the certain packing modules without making a total mess of the other items in the case.
Transporting the TRS Ballistic luggage was smooth. Club Glove wasn’t kidding when they mentioned it was a perfectly balanced system. It was pretty amazing how effortless it seemed while wheeling the luggage around.
All-in-all the TRS Ballistic luggage was excellent, extremely organized and very simple to transport. Even though Club Glove products are more known in the golf world, I would definitely recommend the TRS luggage to serious outdoor enthusiasts who travel constantly and need durable and versatile luggage to carry their gear. Although the price may seem pretty steep at $2248.00 for the 3-piece ensemble, this luggage is going to last you a very long time. You can also purchase the pieces separately.
