Today I’m going to review Hartmann (which is sometimes mistakenly spelt “Hartman”) luggage.
One of the first things that strikes you about Hartmann luggage is the price. This is certainly one of the more expensive brands of luggage out there. Hartmann specialize in luggage. They make wheeled luggage, carry-on luggage, garment bags, hard sided luggage, business cases and totes.
Why is it so much more expensive than other brands? Well, Hartmann luggage is meticulously hand made. The Hartmann Company has been one of the leaders in luggage since the late 1800’s, and it is a well respected brand name in luggage.
One of my favorite designs by Hartmann is the “luxe”. These are the more up-to-date and fashionable styles made by Hartmann. The prices range from around $250 (for a simple tote) up to $950 (for a single 24” upright).
The colors are distinctive, yet tasteful, ranging from light shades of green and blue, to “ladybug” patterns of black & red and black & blue.
If you like a more traditional look to your luggage, you may like the “wings” collection by Hartmann. The prices of “wings” Hartmann luggage ranges from $380 to $1,700. These are of a much more “vintage” style and color. The Oxford Weave is particularly nice.
Another popular type of Hartmann luggage is the “Tweed” series. The “expandable mobile traveller” is a very nice piece of tweed luggage. The tweed is very durable and will maintain its color and strength for many years. It’s also specially treated to repel all forms of dirt and stains which would effect a lesser quality piece of luggage.
All Hartmann luggage is constructed from the best quality materials. The full-grain leather is specially selected from North American young hides, which is expensive, but also the best quality.
If you would like a quality piece of luggage, then you can’t go wrong with Hartmann.
What’s you opinion of Hartmann? Do you think it’s overpriced, or worth every penny? Feel free to leave a comment down below and tell me what you think!
