What to Look for in New Luggage
- Size — bigger pieces hold more, but grow heavier — and airlines have weight limits
- Weight when empty — adds to the burden you carry or roll, but heavier is sturdier
- Fabrication — durable nylon is light but less stylish than leather
- Features — quality wheels, handles, pockets, dividers, and zippers all matter
Note: Better online luggage sellers feature customer reviews worth reading before you buy.
