Sac du jour

August 4, 2011

The Checkmate carry-on hard shell suitcase by Canuck firm Hey's, $119 on sale. Hells yes!

Today’s Sac du jour comes just as Europe embarks on a month-long holiday and the rest of us continue to hear news of that infamous return flight from Paris to Toronto this week that left passengers stranded at Charles de Gaulle airport for 36 hours of waiting and waiting.

Now who wouldn’t have wanted one of today’s gamey chessboard carry-on suitcases during that unexpected layover? Exactly.

The Hey’s hard shell suitcase collection is already known for being lightweight, well-built and durable with a 5-year limited warranty and those fantastically smart 360 degree rotating wheels for easy carting. 

Today’s Chessmate is especially worthy since it is made of 100% recycled plastic materials and comes with the full set of chess pieces.

We love hard shells- perfect for hauling back bottles of vintages and prized findings (like special shoes) in far-away lands.

Happy August!

    I’m sitting on my current suitcase as we speak hoping it breaks.
