Luggage buying guide

6With many luggage companies offering a variety of options to suit the needs of different travelers, buying luggage has become a decision that you should not take lightly. Luggage manufacturers also offer updates and adjustments for merchandise if you choose to buy online. Here are a few areas to consider:

Carry-on luggage – This is the luggage that you take with you. Carry-ons should be less than 21 inches so that they fit into the overhead compartments. It is a good idea to buy one that can easily fit into your checked luggage as well. This way you will still have an extra bag in case space is tight on your way back. You should look for carry-ons with wheels to make carrying your bag easier.

Suitcases – Suitcases are part of your checked luggage and come in a hard shell or with soft exteriors. The hard shell variety is more compact and this may mean that you can pack less. The soft exteriors can pack a bit more, but there is a chance items may be damaged when they are loaded into your carrier. Choose ones with wheels to make carrying your luggage a whole lot easier.

Travel duffel bags – These are similar to gym bags and now come with wheels, which makes it much easier to carry. Such bags are best for short trips and for trips that do not require checked luggage.

For the best online shopping deals on luggage, look for luggage sets. This will mean that each individual item will be a lot cheaper and you will carry a much more stylish set of luggage.
