If you’re traveling for the first time, it can be daunting in a lot of ways. Yet nothing can prepare you more than a good piece of luggage. These bags will make sure your first trip will also be your best.
Your New Best Friend
Make sure your bag has room for all the stuff you want to bring, like laptops, chargers, eReaders, and, oh yeah, clothes.
Rules are Rules
Check that the bag you’re considering is compliant with airline rules, properly sized as a carry-on, with a TSA-approved lock.
From the Airport to the Resort
Check for good, comfortable hardware, such as a handle that telescopes smoothly, wheels that spin and roll easily, and handles you can grip and lift with.
Trust Your Gut
If you’re looking at a soft bag, get one with a strong synthetic fabric such as polyester or rip-stop nylon.
Roll with the Best
Consider useful extras once you’ve checked all the boxes, such as detachable laptop pockets and USB chargers built into the bag.
