(The Crew 11 only offers a three-year warranty against airline damage.) Both Travelpro bags have user-serviceable parts and multiple repair centers. To get repair service, you can either drop the bag off at a repair center or ship the bag to Travelpro, the cost of which they will cover. Keep in mind that the warranty doesn’t cover cosmetic wear, and remember to tread carefully on stairs. The removable garment bags in Travelpro’s spinner suitcases are, in general, tight in the shoulders, which can cause wrinkles.
It also sells several two- and three-piece sets if you want to pair small, medium, and large roller bags together. In addition to traditional roller luggage, Samsonite also offers classic backpacks, wheeled backpacks, duffles, briefcases, wallets, dop kits, and more. There are even some cool wheeled garment bags that can fit under your seat and will fit far more than your typical folding or hanging garment bag.
But Rimowa does also make weekenders, totes, packing cubes, and luggage tags. Rachel Askinasi/Business Insider When it comes to value, Samsonite makes excellent luggage at some of the best prices, which is why we named it our top overall pick for the best carry-on. Samsonite offers numerous options for roller bags, including both hard-side and soft-side carry-ons and checked luggage, as well as wheeled underseat bags and even roller duffles.
Hard sided looks better to most people, but soft sided luggage should withstand the bumps and knocks of travel for longer. A broken strap on a cross-town trek, a shattered roller wheel in the midst of a bustling terminal, a stuck zipper when you’re already late for your flight—nothing can prepare you for these situations when they happen. But our luggage recommendations can lower your chances of encountering them. Whether you’re looking for a suitcase, a duffel, or a backpack, we have picks for every kind of trip. Luggage tags can vary in size but most luggage tags will be credit card-sized or smaller. Some airlines might provide free luggage tags at the check-in desk, but this is quite rare and they are usually of low quality.
The spinner model of the Platinum Elite has a unique magnetic locking system, which helps align the wheels along parallel axes. Instead it feels more like a nudge or subtle push, but that’s enough for this bag to stand out from the competition as a top-rated carry-on bag. With the MagnaTrac wheels, the Platinum Elite is easier to maneuver than the other spinner models we tested.
