Luggage For A New Age Of Travel

Aug 18, 2007
Back in the simple days of air travel, a nice set of luggage containing at least three pieces was enough. Carry on bags were usually men's briefcases and ladies purses. Those days are long gone. We have much more to carry now and with airport restrictions being what they are, it can be difficult to pack what you need to, without damaging electronic equipment.

Pleasure or Business

The type of luggage or bags you need for your trip will depend upon if you are traveling for business or for pleasure. If you are a business traveler you may only need a wheeled traveler to keep all your things together and perhaps a garment bag for you to pack the all important power suit. Of course if you carrying your laptop, you will need your computer briefcase to carry it.

For those who are traveling for pleasure, they may not need a garment bag. They made just need a nice matched set of luggage is large enough to pack what you need, yet compact enough to travel and carry through the airport with ease. Your carry one luggage may consist of a small bag where you carry important things like magazines, gum, tickets and itineraries and anything else you are allowed to carry on these days.

Types Of Luggage You Can Choose From

No matter what your style is or the reason for traveling, there are many different kinds of luggage you can buy these days. Many people opt for backpacks. They also come with a computer compartment or they can come as wheeled back packs, though I think that kind of defeats the purpose. You can find a wide selection of wheeled luggage which you may find more convenient to lug around the different areas of the airport where you have to check in. There are also great roomy carry-ons if you are only going on a short trip and don't want to check your luggage.

There are also many name brand luggage companies where you can choose your traveling gear. Companies like American Tourister often have the latest in trends and are well known for their strength and durability. You can choose from Samsonite, a company that has been selling luggage for a few generations or any number of famous name luggage brands.

You can do your shopping for your traveling gear quickly and easily when you decide to do it online. You will be able to visit many websites and compare prices and values, so you can pick the perfect set of luggage that will be able to handle long trips and quick jaunts for many years to come. Most people don't realize that buying luggage is an investment. You may cringe at the price at first, but if it quality made, it should last you a lifetime.

Next time you are ready to fly the friendly skies, leave your old ratty suitcase at home and invest in a piece of luggage that tells the world you have some grace, style and class
