Must have Suitcases for Every Traveler

Traveling can be one of life's most enriching experiences, but it also comes with its fair share of challenges, especially when it comes to packing. Choosing the right suitcase is crucial for a smooth and enjoyable journey. Whether you're a frequent flyer, an occasional adventurer, or somewhere in between, having the right suitcase can make a world of difference. In this blog post, we will explore the must-have suitcases for every traveler to help you make the best choice for your specific needs.

The Carry-On Classic

Every traveler should own a reliable carry-on suitcase. This compact luggage piece is designed to fit in the overhead compartment of most airplanes, allowing you to bypass the hassle of checking bags. Look for a carry-on with sturdy wheels, a telescoping handle, and compartments for organized packing. Brands like Samsonite, Travelpro, and Tumi offer great options. I offer packing tips for your carry-on in an earlier blog post:

The Checked Luggage

For longer trips or when you need to pack bulkier items, a checked luggage suitcase is essential. These larger bags offer more space for your belongings. Opt for durable materials like polycarbonate or ballistic nylon and consider a built-in TSA lock for added security. Brands such as Rimowa, Away, and Briggs & Riley are known for their quality checked luggage. If you need help with how to pack, refer back to one of my earlier blogs:

The Versatile Backpack

A versatile travel backpack is a must for adventurers and backpackers. Look for a design with adjustable straps, multiple compartments, and a padded laptop sleeve. These padded laptop sleeves make it easy to navigate security checkpoints easily. Brands like Osprey, Patagonia, and Deuter offer backpacks designed specifically for travelers, ensuring comfort and functionality during your journeys.

The Weekend Duffel

Weekend getaways and short trips call for a reliable duffel bag. A good weekend duffel is a must have suitcase and it should be spacious enough to hold your essentials yet compact enough to carry easily. Look for durable materials like canvas or leather and consider a detachable shoulder strap for convenience. Brands like Herschel, Filson, and Everlane offer stylish and practical options.

The Spinner Suitcase

Another must have suitcase is the spinner suitcase. They are known for their effortless maneuverability, thanks to their four multi-directional wheels. These are perfect for navigating busy airports and crowded streets. Look for spinner suitcases with a hard-shell design for added protection. Brands like Delsey, American Tourister, and Traveler's Choice offer a variety of spinner suitcase options. These are easy for kids to use. We also selected the color of the luggage in our children’s favorite color. It makes it easy to identify and keep up with.

The Adventure Gear

If you're an outdoor enthusiast or planning an adventure-filled trip, consider specialized gear like waterproof duffel bags, rugged backpacks, or even a set of packing cubes to keep your equipment organized. Brands like The North Face, Columbia, and Eagle Creek offer durable and adventure-ready luggage solutions.

The Luxury Luggage

For those seeking the ultimate in style and luxury, investing in high-end luggage can be a rewarding choice. Brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, and Rimowa offer premium luggage collections that combine fashion and function. These luxury suitcases often come with exquisite craftsmanship, superior materials, and unique design elements.


Having the right suitcase can significantly enhance your travel experience. Whether you're a frequent flyer, an outdoor adventurer, or a luxury traveler, there's a suitcase tailored to your needs. Consider the type of trips you take most often and the features that matter most to you when selecting your luggage. With the right suitcase in tow, you'll be better prepared to embark on your next adventure with confidence and style.
