What are the denier strengths of luggage? What is the strongest denier?

HiCustomer and welcome to JA!

For example, luggage made from 600 denier polyester will not be very good quality, but will not cost that much. On the other hand, luggage made from 2500 denier nylon will be extremely durable and last for a long time. It will also cost much more.
