Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0013542A1] The invention concerns a vertical suitcase with no rigid frame whereof the surfaces are made of a soft material, a fabric for example. The suitcase is rigidified by two tubes (3) assembling lower (2') and upper support covers (2) made of soft material. The tube act as guides for the rods (14) of a retractable handle (4) provided at the upper cover (2). The upper and lower covers are in the form of a semirigid plastic plate or a sheet with a curved shape defining at least the upper and lower rounded edges (12, 12') of the suitcase rear surface (7). The curved shape of the lower cover (2') is imposed in particular by the bent end of the tubes (3). The curved shape of the upper cover (2) is imposed by side rods (1), preferably metal rods, arranged in the form of two side frames defining the lateral surfaces of soft material.
