Luggage Types

Carry-On

You probably know that a carry-on bag is necessary. No matter where you’re going or how long you’re staying, traveling with a carry-on is the most convenient option. Never fret about standing in a long line to check your bags between flights or about the airline misplacing your luggage. The easiest and most effective method of transportation. You also know that you always bring more clothes than you need.

Weekenders, Backpacks, and Duffle Bags

When deciding where to invest, don’t only think about suitcases. You can look into a brand that offers duffles, backpacks, or weekenders to use as a personal item in addition to your suitcase or for quick weekend vacations. Consider bags with a padded laptop compartment or a trolley sleeve for this. Or even a separate shoe storage area to keep everything organized. The three main pillars to consider when choosing your own item are the organization, comfort, and simple access.

Checked Bag

If you’re going away for a month or more, it makes sense to travel with a checked bag. Or if you’re going somewhere cold or on a ski trip, this will undoubtedly take up the extra room because of the larger sweaters and coats you’ll need. We’ll be kind to you and provide you with the option of a checked bag without passing judgment. For improved balance and mobility, look for ones that are lightweight or positioned closer to the ground.

Pet Carrier

Are you taking a pet on the road? Numerous luggage companies are creating fashionable pet carriers for your four-legged pals that are as pleasant for you to carry as they are for them. Seriously, they thought of everything: washable liners, inner leash storage, side pockets for snacks, and mesh panels for airflow.

Material

When purchasing luggage, you should also consider the material. The most popular choices are leather, aluminum, polycarbonate, or soft skins made of nylon or polyester.

Leather

Leather is the best material for luggage, as it is high quality and lasts for many years, often becoming bags that span many generations. Choosing full grain leather, as it's the best quality available, and ages elegantly with leather patina.

Aluminum

Hard shells constructed of either aluminum or polycarbonate are the most resilient. Aluminum luggage is usually the most sought-after, but thanks to upscale manufacturers like Rimowa or Tumi, it has evolved into more of a status symbol. Although they look nice and undoubtedly protect your belongings, they are bulky, pricey, and offer little room for the over-packer.

Soft Shell

A soft shell can be just as worthwhile of an investment if you haven’t jumped on the hard shell bandwagon, even if it is less durable because it is often constructed of nylon or polyester. This is especially true if it comes with a lifetime warranty, as several of the manufacturers on this list do. Soft-shell luggage’s design is also more adaptable because many soft-shell bags feature outside pockets or expandable possibilities.

Polycarbonate

Although polycarbonate can look just as sleek and is almost as strong as aluminum, it is lighter and less expensive than aluminum, making it our preferred material. Unless you intend to run your baggage over with a trash truck, your polycarbonate suitcase should be alright.
