Whether you’re booked on a weeklong luxury cycling vacation in Europe or embarking on a self-guided South American excursion, having the right luggage is essential to successful travel.
It must be light. You only have 50 lbs. and you don’t want to be that person repacking your suitcase at the check-in counter.
It must be spacious. When you ‘have to have’ one more pair of pants, or ‘can’t live without’ those shoes, every inch counts.
It must be functional. Organization is crucial if you want to stay on schedule for all your planned activities.
It must be durable. Whether you’re shoving it into the overhead because you did in fact over pack, or the airlines are throwing it under the plane, you need to know your luggage will withstand the test of flying.
Here are our five luggage recommendations to get you through every packing misstep, terminal sprint, unexpected rainstorm, and shopping spree that stands in the way between you and your next epic adventure.
