8 Amazing Suitcases That Will Make Travel Easier Than Ever

For Christmas this year, my husband bought me a new suitcase — and I’m obsessed.

Up until this point, I haven’t let myself buy anything but bargain suitcases and bags. Though they hold stuff and do their basic duty, I’ve gone through three over the past year.

From a busted zipper, to a cracked wheel, to a flimsy handle — the quality just wasn’t there.


Now, I have a bag that will last me for years and years.

Not only is it high-quality, but it comes with a warranty, it’s a smart bag (meaning it has a built-in charging station) and it’s super cute.

So, do yourself a favor and invest in a good bag. You won’t regret it, I promise.

8 Amazing Suitcases That Will Make Travel Easier Than Ever:

1. Away Bags

This is the one I have. My favorite features are the big wheels, charging station, removable garment bag and hard shell.

Note: if you’re looking to purchase a carry-on, I would go with the original size. It’s more standard and will fit in all overhead bins.


2. American Tourister 

This is a suitcase brand that I see tons of every time I travel. Though I’ve never owned one myself, I’ve heard great things.


3. Lipault

This suitcase is super cool and compactible.

Unlike hard shell cases, this bag can be unloaded, collapsed and shoved into a tight space. It also has a ton of pockets, so it’s great for keeping your stuff organized.


4. Samsonite

This is one of the most trusted brands in the world of suitcases.

Though you’ll spend a pretty penny, this bag will last you for years to come.


5. Raden

I don’t know much about these suitcases, but they look pretty sleek and durable.

And, from the bit of research I’ve done, they look to be super similar to the Away bags — aka, they’re sweet.


6. Tumi

If you prefer to travel with a soft case, Tumi has awesome options.

This one has a ton of handy pockets, including a huge one on top that’s perfect for carrying a few of your airport necessities.


7. Rimowa

This is definitely the priciest of the bunch, but it’s super sharp and super durable.

Made of aluminum magnesium alloy, this bag could withstand basically anything.


8. Herschel

I’m a huge fan of everything Herschel is doing — and their luggage is no exception.

This bag comes in both a soft shell and a hard shell version, which is awesome. Oh, and they offer a ton of fun colors.

So, ready to take your new suitcase on an adventure? We can help!
