Long trips are particularly appealing if you’ve been at home for a while. Yet you don’t want to forget a single thing when you leave, especially if you’ll be far away from everyone. Here are the bags that will ensure you forget nothing.
It Starts with One
To start, look at the overall size, as you’ll need a bag you can jam with all the clothes you need.
Like Carrying a Vault
Weight is an important consideration, as a good long-term bag will be (relatively) light when you haul it.
Show Your True Colors
If your bag is going to need to take a beating, look for a hard-sided one with panels made of ABS plastic or similar materials.
All the Bells and Whistles
Make sure your bag is compliant with all air travel rules, such as having TSA locks, to ensure a smooth trip.
Go Big or Stay Home
Don’t forget a matching set, particularly if it’s a distinct design, as that will make it easier to pick out on a carousel and limit confusion over who owns which bag.
