No matter what, there is luggage out there that is just right for you.
From carry-ons to cases to trunks to suitcases, we searched for the best luggage. We think these seven pieces will make your next trip a little easier.
Away The Carry-On
You’ll never have to worry about battling to squeeze your suitcase into the overhead bin and losing again, thanks to this hardshell suitcase that’s designed specifically to do just that. It comes with a TSA-approved ejectable battery so you can charge your phone and electronics. Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, the suitcase features a built-in combination lock, 360-degree spinner wheels, laundry bag, interior compression system, and a lifetime guarantee.
Gucci x Globe-Trotter Medium Leather-trimmed Coated-Canvas Suitcase
No matter where you’re sitting on the plane you’ll feel like you’re in first class with this luxe suitcase. Gucci Creative Director and jet-setter Alessandro Michele swears by his Globe-Trotter luggage, so it makes sense that he asked to team up with the British brand on a range for Gucci. Handcrafted with techniques that go all the way back to the Victorian era, the case features modern touches like 360-degree spinner wheels and a retractable wooden top handle. Inside of the monogrammed coated-canvas suitcase, which is trimmed with brown leather, you’ll find internal straps to keep everything in place.
Rimowa Essential Check-In M Spinner Luggage
The OG of hardshell suitcases, the very first polycarbonate luggage blends fashion with function. The cheery hue makes it easy to spot on the luggage claim belt at the airport, plus its patented multiwheels and telescoping handle make being on-the-go a lot easier. The adjustable Flex Divider can be changed according to what you bring along, so packing is easier as well.
Herschel Supply Co. Winslow Garment Bag in Black
Whether you’re en route for a meeting or a wedding, nothing is worse than arriving and finding your suit a crumpled mess. Luckily, this garment bag from Herschel can keep your suit sleek and safe. It also has mesh storage compartments and a front storage pocket to get more mileage, plus the removable padded shoulder strap makes it comfortable to carry.
Dagne Dover Large Landon Carryall
This works equally well as carry-on luggage as a weekender bag. The built-in padded laptop case holds computers up to 15 inches, plus the bag unsnaps at the sides to expand—that’s always good for the trip home to fit your new souvenirs. A mesh pouch inside keeps your essentials sorted and a water bottle pocket makes it easy to stay hydrated. There’s also a key leash, additional interior pockets, an external back pocket, and shoe duster to keep you sorted—and the bag is still somehow incredibly lightweight.
Calpak Trnk 2-Piece Luggage Set
Every jet-setter knows the secret to looking sleek at the airport is traveling with a matching luggage set—no mix and match here! Vintage vibes give this duo extra style points, courtesy of the trunk silhouettes and faux crocodile exterior with matching faux leather straps. The suitcases are already quite spacious, but they’re expandable to give you even more room.
Samsonite Advena Wheeled Ultravalet Garment Bag
Whether you’re transporting a gown, tux, or just pants that need to stay crisp, this is the bag for you. And unlike most garment bags, this one has wheels! The hanger-hook bracket makes it a cinch to move clothes from closet to bag, plus it has an extender panel for long items of clothing. There are also two mesh pockets, so you can pack accessories there to complete your look.
Briggs & Riley Sympatico 30-Inch Expandable Wheeled Packing Case
Go for the bronze with this carefully crafted packing case. Designed to be checked, it’s great for long haul trips, particularly since it can be expanded. Made from three-layer Makrolon polycarbonate, it’s strong while being light. There’s an interior zip pocket, compression straps, and a garment hanger to stay nice and tidy.
