Jet-setter, go getter, nothing better.
But, with the adventure of travel, comes the stress of travel. They say “the journey is the destination” but sometimes that journey is filled with people kicking the back of your seat and a baggage claim area that’s more crowded than a Target on Black Friday. Streamlining travel is something on everyone’s mind, whether it’s packing more efficiently, trying a car-sharing service to get to the airport, or enrolling in TSA pre-check. But luckily for us, luggage companies are designing new products to help eliminate some of the headaches that come with travel. Here are some of the best rolling suitcases of 2017 to help you travel with ease (and style, of course):
This NYC based company believes your suitcase “should be your home between homes” and we couldn’t agree more. Their luggage boasts some tech features that will put regular rollers to shame. With a built in USB charging port, minimalist designs, and unbreakable shells, AWAY luggage helps keep things organized so you don’t have to fret while on the go. And just released, is the Monogram Edition. Since these suitcases will last for life, why not put your initials on it too? Once you choose from your font style and color, NYC artist Jen Mussari will hand-paint up to three letters on the suitcase. This added bonus will keep the confusion at bay when retrieving luggage from the overhead bins and baggage claim.
For all the tech lovers (and let’s be honest, who isn’t?) out there, this luggage brand is just for you. Raden produces sleek suitcases and keeps efficiency top of mind. The luggage has two USB ports to keep your phone and tablet charged on the go (up to 4 full battery charges, to be exact). There is also an integrated, app-enabled scale so you can forget the pre bag check worries about your luggage tipping the scales into extra fees. Rounding out the tech features is the Bluetooth enabled location services to alert you when your suitcase is making its way around the carousel. You can catch stars like Jessica Alba, Mandy Moore and Emma Watson wheeling their Raden suitcases around the world. Count us in.
This gorgeous garden-inspired carry on is a jet-setter’s dream. Perfect for a weekend romp across the pond or a quick business trip, with this stylish bag, you’ll be the talk of the plane.
This weather-resistant, wheeled duffle bag is ideal for the adventurous traveler. You can even be a little liberal with how much stuff you bring since this bag has an internal compression feature, so go ahead and throw in that extra pair of sneakers!
