Rolo Luggage

Hmm, would packing and unpacking be easier with this Rolo rollup luggage? For shorter trips, it just might. There’s a hanging hook, so it will fit practically anywhere- closet, door, etc.- without taking up much room. Once it’s up you can easily see all the contents without rummaging around, or packing and unpacking just to get to one thing. And, seeing as you roll it up for transport, all your clothing is compressed to minimize the overall size. Take a look over at Rolo’s site to see more info and pics.

Genius Pack 30″ Extensive Wheeled Upright

Need new luggage? You’ll want to consider the 30″ Extensive Wheeled Upright from Genius Pack, as it has internal organizational compartments and a fancy feature called Laundry Compression Technology™. Both features allow you to pack more without adding extra bags- and that’s music to any frequent flyer’s ears. A neoprene handle and recessed in-skate wheels provide comfort and ease of movement, and there’s an exterior laundry chute for dirty laundry, because nobody wants their clean clothes canoodling with smelly stuff.

The Reverse-Denim Weekender

I don’t need any more weekend bags, but man, am I tempted by this one from Everlane. At $95, it’s just enough of an ‘affordable’ choice that it has me thinking my luggage needs an overhaul, and the reverse denim version with leather details is mighty easy on the eyes. And, if you don’t want to wait the week and half until this one ships, check out the other color options below.

Hello My Name Is Luggage Tag

Sure, it’s fine to look all cool when traveling, but there’s absolutely nothing wrong with a tiny bit of humor to distinguish your bags from others on the baggage carousel. Inspired by the ubiquitous “Hello My Name Is” nametag design, this tag has an I.D. window on its reverse.

Material: PVC

Custom Leather Luggage Tag

Now that the holiday season has passed, it’s time to focus on escaping for ski trips or warmer climes. And what will you need to distinguish your bag from all the other black cases at the airport? How about a custom leather tag hand stamped with your name, phone number, and email address? (Skip your address, for safety concerns and/or just in case you move house.) On a personal note, I watched someone receive his very own custom tag on Christmas morning, and that someone (a frequent flyer) looked like Ralphie with a Red Ryder BB gun.

Lipault FOLDABLE Upright Luggage

If you’re the sort that hates wasting space, you might like this foldable luggage from Lipault that comes with its own plastic storage bag. It’ll take up less space in the closet and will be dust free when you’re ready to hit the road. It might also work well for those trips when you know you’ll need more luggage on the way back than on the way there- just pop it into your larger case. There’s an upright version as well as a duffel bag (below).

MUJI Hard Carry Suitcase

MUJI rarely goes wrong, and for that very reason I’m extremely curious how well these suitcases will stand up to the tests of travel. While they don’t meet FAA carry on guidelines (45 linear inches is the maximum), they do look durable and are much more affordable than some other similarly attractive hardcases. More info below.

Travelteq Trip

Back in March Travelteq’s first product made a pretty impressive debut. Their Trash Bag is a great laptop/office/overnight bag to carry everything you need.

Now they have brought out a bigger bag and it’s a beauty. It’s small enough to fit onboard yet will carry plenty of your kit for a short trip or a long weekend away. It has a ‘kangaroo pocket’ for the stuff you want to get to: laptop, magazine, phone, it has fold-out legs to turn it into a seat when you’ve had enough of traipsing round duty free and with the slightly more expensive Trip Sound you get speakers and an iPhone/Blackberry charger – incredible. It seems like they’ve thought of everything.

Buy yours now for the introductory rate of €595 or €650 for the Trip Sound before it goes back up. Later on they’ll introduce an Italian leather version. Seriously people you’ve got it all.

Price: €595.00 or 650.00 for Trip Sound

Accordion Bag

No more unpacking? Can it be true? This bag’s accordion strap allows for open shelf storage when hung, meaning you can do without hangers and hotel drawers. When folded, it looks like a normal-ish bag (in reflective material) that’s easy enough to carry around. It’s worth mentioning that the hook looks a little worrisome; if there’s no storage option for it, it might catch on something.

Available in Green, Blue, or Yellow.

This travel bag is mighty impressive. Handmade in Italy, it has 8 inside compartments (4 open, 3 zipped) and one outside compartment/pocket (for ticket or mobile phone) to make sure all your important things stay put.

Accommodates up to a 15 inch laptop.
Florentine Vachetta leather with water resistant nylon lining.
