Our cabin friendly luggage comes in a range of sizes to accommodate you whatever airline you fly with. Also known as hand luggage or carry on luggage, we have bags and suitcases perfect to take on board a flight without checking in. These little bags and cases are also perfect for journeys on trains, in cars, to the city or to festivals; whatever the trip and however the journey, our luggage is packed full of thoughtful features which make travel a doddle.
A consumer essential in today’s travel environment affording the freedom to pack and carry more of what you want.
We are proud of our reputation as a world leader, with lightweight design remaining at the heart of our development and innovation plans across all products and formats – suitcases, cabin cases, business and casual bags.
Speaking of packing more of what you want - our expandable suitcases mean that when your luggage reaches full capacity you can simply unzip the expandable section to allow more internal space. This is great for taking the strain off of a full case or for fitting all the souvenirs and gifts you find along your travels to bring home.
At Revelation we believe that honesty is the best policy, and because there is no industry standard measurement of luggage capacity, we give you a number of options to consider when making a decision on which product to purchase.
The true internal capacity measures the actual space available for packing, taking into account the corners, trolley system, internal wheel housing and the sloping sides.
The gross capacity measurement, which is the most commonly used by manufacturers, takes into account the external extremities including the wheels, handles and the trolley system (closed).
At Revelation! we never want to send you something that doesn’t meet with your expectations.
We always try to ensure that our measurements are as accurate as possible, however, cases can sometimes vary in height, depth and width so please use the information as a guide when comparing cases.
Sizes include wheels, handles and trolley system and are approximate. Ranges may vary slightly.

Our pockets and compartments help you to keep all your travel bits organised and cared for. External pockets provide a great space for keeping items like travel documents safe and to hand, whilst internal compartments can help you to seperate shoes or dirt clothes from cleaner items in your case.
These handles ensure comfort and luxury while you travel, with a rubberised feel which is gentle on hands and easy to move. Where you see this feature, suitcases with a side handle will include soft touch for both top and side handle.
Take the energy, stress and pain out of travelling, with effortless manoeuvrability and rolling resistance, across all our 4 wheel luggage. The introduction of ultra smooth 4 wheels on our cases has created a revolution in the way that you travel, whatever the journey; whether by train, plane or car. Once tried never forgotten!
Manufactured with high quality durable polymers the wheels are designed to function and perform under the toughest conditions.
Quite simply, a striking design sure to attract attention. These cases come in range of eye-catching styles, with block colours, pop colours, 3D designs and a range of bold prints from floral to geometric. Perfect for those who prefer something edgy which will stand out on the conveyer belt and is guaranteed to get your noticed.
Plastic used for hard cases. A high impact polymer which provides great resistance. It can be produced in a variety of colours and finishes and forms well using vacuum forming and moulding techniques. Surface can be high shine or embossed.
PC is used on our premium hard cases. The material is lightweight and strong. It is also a material which allows us to use high shine or “mirror” finishes. With pure PC cases, the shells of the cases are consistent in colour so if the top layer is scratched by luggage handlers, the damage is less visible due to this solid colour. Some cases use PC as an outer layer on top of an ABS base.
PC is a very hard material, which also limits the range of embossed finishes that can be used on the material. PC is also more expensive than ABS.
Man-made yarn woven into fabrics, lightweight and extremely strong, useful for bags and for reinforcing Antler straps and strap “anchors” as an interleave. Usually has a “bright” surface finish. Measured in denier – the weight (or strength) of the yarn. Broadly the greater the number the stronger the fabric.
Hard-wearing man-made fabric with a matt or shiny look and an attractive woven appearance. Measured in denier – 600 is satisfactory, 1200 is strong, 1800 is exceptionally rugged. N.B. The density or tightness of weave is an important strength factor too – Antler’s are all high or very high density. A tight woven 1200 denier can be stronger than a loose-woven higher denier fabric. Also used as a lightweight hardwearing lining fabric and for matching straps.
Can be moulded into cases and components or converted into yarn for webbing straps because of its extra-strong tear-resistance.
Vinyl sheeting used as a waterproofing backer on most luggage fabrics, or as a main material suitably embossed with leather-look grain. Also used for straps and trim details with leather-look embossing.
Leather Natural Hides
These are not artificially embossed (often done to hide imperfections), allowing the natural grain to show through.
Leather Full Grain
The part of the hide retaining the top surface i.e. the true character of the hide when a hide is split. The interior remainder is called a split.
Where the natural surface has been removed. The surface has to be sanded, sealed, embossed or coated. Many briefcases are made from splits with an artificial embossed surface. N.B. Minor imperfections are part of the natural characteristics of leather and are not the result of poor workmanship.
PU Coated Leather
Split leather with a thin film of PU for colour and finish.
Waste leather which has been ground up and re-bonded into sheet form.
