What to Look for in New Luggage

02/12/2017 04:48
Utility is key. What will you mostly use the luggage for? Long or short trips, airline or car travel? Will you be leaving for an extended amount of time or do you only need a weekend bag that holds a few items? Consider:
  • 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.
