We can all agree that it would be easiest to travel all carry-on, but sometimes that is unfortunately not an option.  Whether you’re flying solo or with the fam, internationally or domestically, for an extended stay or only a weekend getaway, here are some of the best luggage brands of 2017!

  • Samsonite – Samsonite suitcases are known for their durability.  Samsonite’s 2017 range boasts “shockingly lite” luggage with their new lite-shock technology and stride-align glider cases – both hard and soft-shelled, and even leather.  The Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 28” Luggage is at the top of reviews.  The extremely lightweight and durable spinner is made completely of polycarbonate material to absorb impact, eliminate dents, and still protect its contents.  This case comes complete with a TSA-approved combination lock both for security and peace of mind.

  • SwissGear – Another big name in travel, SwissGear luggage offers a great range of cases for all budgets.  This season, SwissGear is proud to introduce their business collection of high-end suitcases.  For more everyday use, check out the SwissGear Travel Gear 28” Expandable Spinner.  This upright luggage is equipped with 360 degree spinner wheels for superior maneuverability. It also has a reinforced padded top and side grab handles, as well as a removable zippered wet bag on the inside.

  • Delsey Luggage – Delsey is quickly becoming a crowd favorite, with some of the best hardside bags of 2017.  These French-imported bags are both sleek and convenient.  Delsey most recently introduced their “Longitude” collection.  One of their more standard and favored models is the Delsey Luggage Helium Aero 29” Expandable Spinner Trolley.  Not unlike Samsonite, this Delsey is made of 100% polycarbonate, with a deep metallic finish.  This bag has a comfortable handle system that locks into two different positions for ease of use.  Four spinner wheels, an integrated TSA-approved combination lock, and a recessed “one-button” locking handle system make this bad exceptionally maneuverable and nearly weightless to your arm.

  • Travelpro – Travelpro brags that they are “the choice of flight crews and frequent flyers.”  They offer a range of cases, focusing primarily on soft-shelled bags.  Although Travelpro luggage tends to be on the pricier side, they do have an outlet shop with incredible savings.  A very typical yet high-quality bag is the Travelpro Platinum Magna 2 25” Express Spinner Suiter.  This bag is handsomely crafted with a durable and luxurious Nylon, adorned with genuine leather accents.  The bag is not only fashionable, but incredibly functional as it is made with patented MagnaTrac spinner wheels and comes equipped with a deluxe interior including a suiter for wrinkle-free packing.
