If I am traveling on a longer trip, I tend to like a 30-inch bag. It’s considered a large suitcase and I know I’ll have plenty of room for whatever I need, plus space for things I want to bring home. For special trips I look for mementos to bring home. That could be artwork, a piece of jewelry or a Christmas ornament. These items make for wonderful memories.
This is an ideal size for carry-on luggage. While you are technically allowed to take a 22-24″ suitcase on most domestic flights, international carry on restrictions are up to 21″. I don’t like to have too many pieces around, and prefer to keep it simple with this size.
There are a lot of options out there and it can be overwhelming choosing the right travel pieces. They’re an investment you shouldn’t have to make frequently. Personally I prefer darker pieces that don’t show scuffs and marks that happen along the way. I also really love silver and grey pieces for that reason as well.
Next up consider what size you need. Since I travel so often, I have multiple places. Here is a good rule of them for roller bags:
Pack smarter with compression travel bags that’ll keep you organized along the way. I like to organize my outfits or types of clothing in each cube. This helps me to pack efficiently and not overpack.
When you get to your destination, you’ll also be able to find exactly what you need a lot easier.
