Luggage We Love

Traveling is one of our favorite things to do! But we know as well as anyone that your suitcase makes a huge difference in how easy it is to pack and keep items organized. In this post, we share some of our favorite luggage brands for when we want to get away.


Designed by travelers, for travelers, Away offers a wide range of products, from carry-ons and checked bags to flex bags, weekenders, and backpacks. The Away hardshell luggage is made with durable polycarbonate and 360-degree spinner wheels. It also includes an internal compression system, a water-resistant laundry bag, and a TSA-approved combination lock.

Founded in 1910, Samsonite has been a dependable luggage brand for over a century. We love this brand because it offers a variety of durable hard and soft-shell choices, from under-seaters to carry-ons to checked bags. Additionally, we love that Samsonite is dedicated to sustainability. Its new global strategy, “Our Responsible Journey,” is a multi-year plan to review how its products are made and their impact on the planet. It is increasingly using high-quality, sustainable materials that repurpose waste, including the industry-leading Recyclex fabric made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

Open Story

We understand working with a budget but wanting quality luggage, which is why we love Open Story, Target’s exclusive brand that offers high-performing polycarbonate suitcases at an affordable price point. The suitcases include interior mesh compartments with cross straps, laundry bags, zip-open, expandable hard-side polycarbonate exteriors, and built-in USB ports for a power bank or battery charger.

Luxury brand Rimowa, which has been redefining travel since 1898, was the first to use polycarbonate to make durable yet lightweight suitcases. It offers several high-quality luggage collections, backpacks, totes, briefcases, cross-bodies, accessories, and more. Luxury partnerships and limited-edition pieces are commonplace – for instance, check out this Rimowa Classic Twelve Bottle Case ($9,900), a suitcase for wine connoisseurs to protect and display bottles!

Canadian luggage brand Monos prides itself on making suitcases with German Makrolon polycarbonate, a lightweight, aerospace-grade material that, according to Monos, is “nearly impossible to break.” Monos offers five luggage collections with a minimalist design and a variety of colorways. Its carry-on design even earned the A’Design Bronze Design Award for 2018-2019.
