Here Are Three Bags for Every Type of Travel

The start of the year is one of the best times to travel and we’re here to help you get your luggage game in order.



January is one of the best months in the year to travel. Flights are cheap, there’s powder on the mountains and warm weather to be found if you just need to get out of the cold. Yes, you’re just coming off the Q4 break but you have a whole new year ahead. There’s no better time to book, plan or get your luggage game in order to prep for what’s to come in 2019. Whether cruising around a new city, jetting off on a mini-break, a business trip or leaving town for a weeklong trip abroad, there’s a choice bag for all of it.

Best for an Overnight

A sturdy backpack can easily transition to from everyday commuter accessory to overnight travel bag or vice versa. This one, in particular, is an overachiever: it beats any standard backpack with the number of pockets, so it’s easy to keep organized on short trips. It boasts divided interior compartments with separate zip closures, a 15″ laptop compartment, an iPad pocket as well as four exterior zip pockets. The ballistic weave fabric is also ultra-durable and easy to clean making it primed to be put to the test over years of use.

Best for Work Travel

This bag is surprisingly spacious and that’s a great thing when traveling for work. Unlike personal travel, which probably involves some tees and pullovers, you’re going to be inclined to flat pack your shirts, trousers and blazer. That inevitably takes up more space than rolling a couple of cotton tops, for example. Beyond that, this duffel-roller hybrid also comes with a removable side pouch (great for toiletries). Throw in a packing cube and shoe bag and you’ll easily stay organized. It’s sized as a carry-on but the ballistic nylon will do you well if you have to check it.

Best for Long Holidays

Taking a hardshell case for a week or more of travel is rule number one. This Tumi case is cabin size so if you like to be on and off the plane quickly, it’s a great choice. But if, let’s say, you grab a bottle of wine or olive oil to bring home, it will still be a safe bet to check it on the return trip. With four wheels, it’s easy to navigate and spacious enough to fit everything you need for the week, from loungewear to activewear and your daily change of clothes. One of the best features? It’s incredibly light so you’ll be hardpressed to be over the weight limit.
