10 of the Best Travel Bags


  • Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Pack – Whether you’re flying, driving, or spending your travel time exploring on foot, this all-weather travel pack by Cotopaxi is meant to fit absolutely everything you need in one bag. From a packable rain cover to special electronic-safe compartments, this pack can be carried on your back, one shoulder, or around the waist.

  • Everlane Nylon Weekender – Simple yet still stylish, this lightweight nylon duffel makes the perfect carry-on bag. The Weekender can also do double duty as it’s big enough to carry enough gear for a weekend away, or it can serve as an addition to larger suitcases on longer trips.

  • Raden A22 Charged Wheeled Carry-On – Sleek and perfectly sized for your carry-on needs, this is one of the smartest pieces of “smart” luggage available right now. It’ll charge your gadgets (thanks to its TSA approved removable battery), includes a digital scale in the handle to prevent overpacking, and connects to your smartphone so you can track your bag wherever it goes.

  • Herschel Supply Co. Trade 23-inch Wheeled Carry On – Herschel made a name for itself in backpacks designed for your everyday goods, and now the brand’s luggage is turning heads. This well-executed wheeled hardside suitcase features the same clean styling Herschel is known for.

  • Pacsafe Slingsafe LX300 Anti-Theft Backpack – Safety is this lightweight backpack’s biggest concern – and its biggest benefit. Designed with a fabric that can’t be slashed and zippers that keep pickpockets away, the Slingsafe also packs a RFID inside so you can track its location should it get lost or stolen.

  • SwissGear ScanSmart 1900 TSA Laptop Backpack – With nearly 7,000 5-star reviews on Amazon and over 6,000 positive reviews on eBags, it’s clear travelers love this classic SwissGear backpack. It’s TSA approved, can be unzipped to lay flat for a security scan, and packs enough room inside for a 17-inch laptop, tablet, 2 water bottles, and a few extra outfits.

  • Baggallini Rolling 17-inch Tote – This rolling tote isn’t like any other traditional wheeled bag. It’s designed to tackle anything you throw at it: it fits both overhead bins and under airline seats, can be rolled on its wheels, collapsed and carried as a tote, and stacked on top of larger suitcases for easy transport.

  • Briggs & Riley Rolling Cabin Bag – This Briggs & Riley bag may appear small on the outside, but its interior packs enough room for three days worth of travel necessities – including your tech devices. This roomy suitcase fits under all airline seats and is also backed by a lifetime warranty, meaning wear and tear is nothing to worry about.

  • Filson Duffel Backpack – A duffel bag doesn’t have to be boring if you’re carrying this hybrid bag designed by Filson. Rugged enough to be carried for camping yet stylish enough to work for fancier vacations, this duffel can be worn as a backpack or carried like a shoulder bag – and there’s room, some say, for a week’s worth of clothes.

  • Longchamp Le Pliage Backpack – Longchamp bags are longtime favorites for travelers in need of a lot of space, but the Le Pliage backpack makes it even easier to carry everything you need. Lightweight and waterproof, this backpack folds up neatly when it’s no longer needed.
