Time to travel in style.

Best Luggage Feature Photo

The days where it was acceptable to lug your beaten, fifteen year old and frankly hideous samsonite bag into the overhead locker are gone. Luggage is now an important part of any trip, for business or leisure. If you have already invested in that slick new travelling suit or superb noise cancelling headphones but are accompanied by some gastly bag, it is time to change.

A good carry-on bag can make or break your travelling experience. Get it wrong and you’ll be searching through your entire bag to get your boarding pass, pulled up a security without knowing where your laptop is or looking like a fool trying to lug around a week’s worth of clothing in a bag made for an overnight trip. Getting your luggage right will make travel far more enjoyable and impress colleagues or girlfriends alike.

It can be overwhelming to decide what kind of luggage you want (or need), to simply your choice, we have selected rolling, duffels and backpacks to enhance the heck out of your next trip.

Rolling Luggage

Rolling Luggage

If your spending a little longer abroad or need to carry a lot of kit (we all like to have options) your best bet is rolling luggage. They tend to be bigger than their soft shell cousins and will allow you to pack more and carry it easier. These are perfect for business trips as you’ll be able to roll through the airport into the board room with ease, as well as looking badass.

You might have a bad perception of the rolling carry on, but, brands like Rimowa, Away, Valextra and Brics have proved that you can roll in style for any budget and taste. There are a range of hard and soft shell options that you can carry onto the plane, here is our pick of the bunch:
