Finding luggage to fit your travel needs


When you think about planning your next great trip, things like airfare, hotels, and experiences probably come to mind first. So many other factors can help elevate your trip though, like your luggage! Having the right type of luggage for your travel (and packing) style can eliminate some stress as you pack. We put together a list of some of our favorites and asked a few of our friends in the travel industry to share theirs as well. Let's unpack what we found!


Our favorite carry-on luggage

We get a lot of questions about this one! Carry-on luggage needs to be big enough to fit your essentials, but small enough to take comfortably with you through the airport. Here are a few suggestions:

ROAM Expandable: Coming in at just 7.3 pounds, this carry-on still gives you plenty of room to pack everything you need. Ball-bearing wheels make it easy to maneuver through even the busiest airports. ROAM's compression system will also allow you to pack things more evenly and organized. The expandable option adds 37% more space if you need extra room.

Beis Carry-on: This sleek carry-on offers 360 degree rotating wheels for easy maneuvering, hard-sided exterior for durability, and an option to expand up to 2 inches to squeeze in a few extra essentials. The side carry handle also has a weight limit indicator.

Solgaard Carry-on Closet: If you like to stay organized (or maybe you need a little extra help in that department), this could be the carry-on you need. The unique built-in shelving system allows you to keep your things visible and organized without having to unpack. This luggage also features a hard shell and USB charging port.

Our favorite computer bags

When looking for a perfect computer bag, consider what kind of items you will be carrying, what kind of environments you'll be traveling in, and how much protection you want for your electronics. Here are our suggestions:

Solgaard Lifepack: This solar-powered backpack will help you keep all your electronics charged while the anti-theft features keep them protected. This bag also features drop-proof laptop storage and a waterproof bottom.

Samsonite Spinner Underseater: This bag fits under most airline seats, allowing for easy access and storage. The multi-directional wheels make for easy mobility wherever life takes you. You can also keep your electronics charged and ready with the accessible USB port.

Our favorite checked bags

If you're taking a longer trip (or just like to pack a lot of options), you might have a love-hate relationship with your luggage. Not anymore! Here are a few options that will help you stay organized, maximize space, and win the weight-limit battle at check-in time.

Solgaard Check-in Closet: Do you wish you could just pick up your closet and take it with you on your trip? With this suitcase, you essentially can! The shelving system allows you to organize your things as you pack, then move it straight from the suitcase to the closet at your destination without having to unpack each item. Solgaard says its medium luggage can hold 8-10 outfits while the large can accommodate 9-12+.

RIMOWA Check-in L: This luggage is built with longevity in mind. The aluminum exterior makes this suitcase both durable and lightweight. It also features TSA-approved locks, flex divider, and a lifetime guarantee.

Away (The Medium): This suitcase is perfect for fitting about 10-12 outfits for your next trip. The interior compression and included laundry bag will help you stay organized before and during your trip. The durable, lightweight shell will keep your items perfectly protected.
