Globetrotting is very much about planning and equipment. You need to know where to go, when, and what to bring with you. Luggage sets are a good place to start, and these five will get you rolling.
Cover All Your Bases
Space matters, so pick a set that offers a good mix of sizes and stowability, including compliance with airline luggage and carry-on rules.
Stand Out in a Crowd
Hard shells can take more of a beating, but soft shells give you a bit more flexibility on interior, so choose accordingly.
Stand Up to the Bumps and Bangs
Check the hardware, to be sure the handles are high enough, the wheels spin smoothly, and the locks work correctly.
Bring Style with You
Interiors designed to make it easy to organize your stuff will be key as well, especially for small items like cosmetics and medication.
Remember the Little Things
Again, don’t forget to pick a color you like and that stands out, or to tag your bags with something easy to spot when you’re in baggage claim.
