Travel chess set - buying guide
Larger travel sets are often not magnetic, since it saves in cost and weight. Non magnetic travel sets also play nicer, however a stable underground is then required. For very small travel sets normally magnetic sets are chosen, since the pieces are more stable on the chess board.
Staunton 4 chess sets are a regular choice, since they play well and are easy to store. When playing serious games, chess sets up to Staunton 6 are bought. Printed chess boards or stained chess boards are less expensive. Inlaid chess boards are considered nicer to play, but are higher in price. There is a lot of variety in designs, since tastes differs.
