We take the art of packing very seriously here at Passported HQ and it all starts with having the right suitcase. The key to not overpacking is a reasonably sized bag that is smartly designed to fit everything you need. Pro tip: After you're all packed, go back in your suitcase and remove two items-- trust us you won't need them and you'll give yourself a little extra room for those souvenirs. Check out the roundup below for our favorite bags that make traveling a breeze.
These sturdy suitcases made of aluminum are from Rimowa founded in 1898. We love the retro sleek design, the extremely durable material and special TSA lock. These shiny suitcases are also bound to turn heads in the airport. They ain't cheap though (starting around $600) but they will last you a lifetime.
Made of nylon, these suitcases are super light and easy to deftly move around the airport. With a lower price point (around $200) these bags are fit for the whole family. We love the selection of colors and sizes, especially the matching carry-on totes.
Raden (starting at $295) is in class by itself when it comes to combining the top materials with the newest technology. They have two built in charges and integrated scale to avoid those pesky fees, plus location technology so you can stop guessing when your suitcase is coming around the carousel. Genius!
