Luggage and Bags
Best Overall Travel Bag
We’ve found Patagonia’s Black Hole Duffel 70 Liter perfect for just about every trip. It’s rugged, light weight, and flattens down when needed. Patagonia also makes this perfect bag in a smaller 40L, 55L, and 100L.
Luggage and Bags For Air Travel
Picking the right carry-on bag is probably one of the more challenging of luggage choices. Different airline carriers have different size requirements, especially when traveling internationally. Check your carrier’s website to see their current requirements.
Max-out Carry-On Weight
The Travelpro Maxlite 5, is a good compromise between price and quality. The two wheels are reasonably protected by the molding, instead of sticking out from the suitcase body. Plus, the Travelpro brand is well trusted by flight crews and frequent flyers alike.
Best Travel Bag for Road Trips
Since we like to stay super organized on the road, we prefer duffel bags with lots of organizing pockets. This makes them a bit heavier of a bag, so they are not great for air travel. We love our Ful Rolling Duffel. It has a place for shoes, another for toiletries, and a split inner compartment.
Best Camera Bags
We bring a camera bag everywhere we go. Our Lowepro is the workhorse we use when we need to bring all of our gear; however, Peak Design’s Everyday Bag is prefect as a day pack.
Packing Cubes to Keep You Organized
Packing cubes save space, keep you organized, and make repacking a cinch.
