Distinctly colored luggage is one of the easiest ways to ensure a smooth baggage claim experience. The Rimowa Topas Copper Luggage certainly qualifies, while doing a fine job of protecting your belongings. They utilize the company's Multiwheel system to make navigating any terrain a breeze, have integrated, TSA-approved combination locks, holders for extra bags, and extendable, telescoping handles. Made in Canada from an aluminum magnesium alloy, the copper finish suitcases are available available exclusively at Bloomingdale's in cabin-sized, 26", 29", and 32" varieties.
Traveling is a big enough hassle without having to worry about your bags. Alleviate those concerns with the AirBolt Smart Travel Lock. Designed for use on checked baggage but good for a multitude of other things, this rope-based lock uses Bluetooth to let you lock and unlock it with nothing but an app. You can set a backup unlock code for times when you don't have your device around, set alerts that will buzz you should you and your bag become separated, and use crowdsourced GPS networks to show the lock — and therefore your bag's — last known location should it not arrive on time. TSA-compliant, it will also tell you if the TSA opened your bag during your trip.
Leaders when it comes to outdoor gear, Filson and Burton have joined forces again for this Wheelie Flight Deck Bag. The bag takes the Burton Wheelie Bag line to the next level, adding Filson touches like the 18 oz. oil finish luggage twill construction along with leather zipper pulls and PU back panels. You also get wool lining, an internal mesh divider, and skateboard wheels that are easy to replace or customize. Add in the fact that it meets most airline carry-on standards and it adds up to an incredibly versatile piece of luggage from two of the most trusted brand names in outdoor gear.
