Most Louis bags have been around for ages. So it's a big deal when there's a new design. The Louis Vuitton Keepall Voyager Bag isn't just a new design — it's also the debut of a new canvas. Dubbed the Monogram Eclipse, this bag's exterior dons the same familiar pattern as the company's brown and tan goods, but turns them shades of black and grey. Otherwise, the bag's ideal for weekend getaways, with fabric handles, a removable shoulder strap, multiple internal pockets, and a 17-inch length that'll hold just enough clothes and gear.
That's one way to keep the TSA from rifling through your stuff. Made from durable custom polycarbonate, the Crumpler Vis-A-Vis Clear Suitcase lets anyone see what's inside. It also has a built-in TSA lock, just incase, four smooth glide wheels to traverse the terminal with ease, straps to both help compress your clothes and take stress of the external zipper, 70 liters of internal volume, and fabric straps that make it comfortable to carry.
A great bag is a great investment. And a bag from Troubadour is an even better purchase.

The well-polished, long-tail zipper is cut from brass and provides a wide opening for easy access to whatever you stow inside. And even the internal pockets are made with leather and suede detailing, rounding out a great looking bag that's appeal will only increase over time.

The exterior is lined in Epi leather, with gold-plated studs, latches, lock, and original key. Inside, it's lined in deep green alcantara and grained leather, fitted with a heavy glass silver-mounted whiskey carafe, four whiskey beakers, and a Thermos-lined ice bucket. Way more than you'll ever need to class up any travel destination.

Crafted from water resistant three-layer corkshell and finished with military-spec hardware, the The Lost Explorer Traveler Bag can handle the rigors of nearly any trip. Which is good, because it's designed to carry all of your stuff in a single unassuming package. A center zip compartment handles a suit jacket, and is hidden on the inside, underneath a removable shoe bag and series of six pockets to hold things like underwear, shirts, sundry items, and a charger, the latter necessary since it also has a dedicated laptop compartment. Other details include three roomy external pockets, magnetic closures, and a strap and handles so you can carry it like a briefcase or over your shoulders.
Unless you're literally living out of your suitcase, odds are it spends most of its time taking up space in your home. Neit Collapsible Smart Luggage gives you all the protection of a hardshell while taking up very little room. The collapsible design and folding wheels let the bag take up just three inches of space when not in use, letting it hide under furniture or hang flat in a closet when not in use.

Available in 90L "Checked" or 38L "Cabin" sizes.
Now that electronic boarding passes are the norm, the checking and tagging of luggage is one of the last remaining vestiges of the old, time-consuming check-in process. The Rimowa Electronic Tag aims to bring it up to date by doing away with those flimsy paper tags completely. In its place in an E Ink display that's the same size and appearance as traditional tags, but can be loaded onto your luggage via Bluetooth, allowing you to check your bag in the same way your check in yourself: wirelessly. You'd then hand your checked bag off at an autonomous station, giving you one less line to stand in. The feature is available for several of the company's most popular lines, including the Topas, Salsa, and Limbo, and will be rolling out for Lufthansa flights soon, with other airlines to follow.

It also has a YKK zip that allows for full access to the main compartment, the requisite padded laptop/tablet compartment, an internal water-resistant pocket for toiletries, and external magazine and document pockets.

TSA-compliant, it will also tell you if the TSA opened your bag during your trip.

It's good for more than just making mojitos, but the T.T. Mojito Trunk does make it easy to craft the iconic Cuban drink. This portable bar on wheels has a top lid that opens up to create a work surface, and two front doors that swing open to reveal tons of storage, including spots for holding glasses, bar tools, multiple bottles, syrups, and cutting boards. Each one is built individually, with boated canvas on the exterior, microfiber on the interior, and hand-polished nickel plated brass fittings.
Sometimes it's not enough to travel with just your clothes. Sometimes you need to bring some refreshments along too. The Globe-Trotter x Chivas Steamer Trunk lets you do both in grand style. The interior of the trunk has dedicated compartments for watches and shoes, leather-covered suit hangers, and a mirror-backed mini bar that folds out of the side. The custom lining honors the legacy of both brands, while the American white oak drawer linings and hand-engraved copper plaque reclaimed from a Scotch whisky still make the link to Chivas readily apparent to anyone who cares to look.
If you're familiar with the TUMI brand, then you already know that each piece of luggage is designed and outfitted with class and quality. The 1975 International Carry-On is no exception, and might even raise the bar a bit higher in the luxury travel market.

Arrives complete with a strap removal tool and a piece of D3O in the shape of a watch for you to play with.
It looks like a toolbox. Hence the name. But the Tooletries Case isn't made to carry wrenches and drivers. Instead, it's made to carry your bathroom gear when you're on the go. A hard-shell exterior ensures that your cologne, razor, face wash, and other essentials stay protected, silicone netting keeps things organized, and an over-moulded grip makes it easy to yank hurriedly out of a packed suitcase.
While it does sport a vintage style, Tumi 1975 Luggage doesn't necessarily ape bags from the mid-70s. Instead, the number refers to the year of the company's founding, a fact that's celebrated with the collection's carry-on, rucksack, duffel, travel kit, and luggage tag, as well as the full-grain leather and ballistic nylon construction. Designed and made in the US. Limited to just 1,975 pieces.
No matter how durable your luggage's body, it's only as strong as its weakest point. That's quite often the wheels. Which is why Heys Stealth Luggage features aluminum wheels that stow away when not in use. Not only does this system keep the wheels safe, it also allows for a bit of extra packing space around the bag after they're retracted. Other features include a 100% polycarbonate shell, a fully-lined interior with compression straps, and a handsome aircraft-inspired design. Available in 21", 26", and 30" varieties.
It's not literally made of walnut — that would make it box, not a case. Instead, the Walnut Whiskey Case is hand-stitched and hand-dyed using USA-sourced leather in a Portland, OR studio. It features sustainable cedarwood ends to protect the bottle in the case, a strong snap to keep it shut as you travel, and a leather strap that makes it easy to carry anywhere. Comes with two leather coasters and holds bottles up to 12.25" tall and 3.375" in diameter.
If you've ever travelled with a suit before, you already know keeping it crisp and wrinkle free is nearly impossible.
