Whether you are constantly hopping on a plane or have a quick weekend trip booked, great luggage is an essential part of any travel plan. I consider travel bags to be a great investment since they are pieces you can own forever and utilize for everything from personal vacations to business trips. Because they are such a key investment purchase, luggage sets are often a gift marked to celebrate big life moments like graduations and weddings, but there is no need to wait for those occasions to build out your collection.

On the market, you'll find great luggage options designed by luxury heritage houses with long-standing histories as well as recently launched brands offering bags outfitted with technology-forward details. While there are plenty of options on the market, ahead are the best travel bags to have on your radar to add to your cart and use for years and years to come.


One thing that sets Away's luggage apart is the optional USB charger you can add to the suitcases. Designed to help your devices remain charged up throughout your travels, this feature makes it one of the most popular luggage brands currently on the market.


Italian brand Bric's was founded in Milan in 1952 and has specialized in producing handmade travel bags since. The elegant designs have timeless, classic lines that are popular among celebrities such as Amal Clooney.


You can also find timeless travel bags at Paravel, a relative newcomer to the market. Sustainability is central to the brand, which has already upcycled over six million plastic bottles and transformed them into its products.

Saint Laurent

While Saint Laurent doesn't currently offer suitcases in its collection, it has a beautiful range of duffles and weekend bags. The designer pieces are popular among celebrities such as Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, who was recently spotted with the brand's ES Giant Quilted Bag.


Rimowa is one of the premium luggage brands that are huge among the fashion set. The company was founded in 1898 and is known for its high-quality, sleek designs and signature aluminum suitcases.

Louis Vuitton

Founding his brand in 1854, Louis Vuitton started his career by designing trunks for Napoleon III's wife, so the brand has a rich history in luggage that remains central to the fashion house. The LV monogram is one of the most recognizable brand logos and is a signature design element of the pieces to this day.


Like many other heritage designer brands, Gucci began as a luggage manufacturer for the Italian elite when it was founded in 1921. The brand's iconic logo and classic shapes are still infused into its luggage pieces today.
