Your Luggage Should Have Wheels

Katie Kocsis Contributor

Do you love to travel? I do! Whether it’s to see friends, family members, or new destinations to explore, I’m all in. If you are planning to get away any time soon, check out your current luggage situation. There are so many great luggage and packing options out there. If you need new luggage, want to give the traveler in your life a great gift, here’s some free advice: I highly recommend getting a rolling duffel. There is really no reason to have luggage that is not on wheels and it makes travel so much easier! As a female who packs a lot of clothes and footwear, I cannot imagine not using something on wheels. Obviously, there are standard luggage sets on wheels, I just prefer the duffel. The soft-sided duffels have some give to them if you pack a lot like I do. They are also very sturdy and last a long time. My personal favorite is the Patagonia 40L. It only weighs 8 pounds and is 11″ x 8″ x 22″ long. In other words, you can put about 50 pounds of clothes in there and still take it on the plane as a carry-on if you want to. If you travel frequently, this is the bag for you. Priced at $310, it isn’t the cheapest bag on the market, but it is virtually indestructible and you will definitely get your money’s worth out of it.

Patagonia Black Hole Wheeled Duffel 40L Hex Grey — $309.99

If you are interested in a rolling duffel at a lower price, Amazon has several other options for you as well. In the same size range, High Sierra makes a great duffel that can be rolled or carried as backpack. It is a little bigger than the Patagonia bag with dimensions of 22″ x 14″ x 9″, which still meets airline carry-on regulations. It is still very lightweight at only 9.6 pounds. Importantly, Amazon has it on sale right now. This duffel is now priced at $128, down from the regular price of $140. If you want the option of rolling you suitcase and carrying it as a backpack, this is a tremendous option. Take advantage of the sale price while you can.

Additionally, if you do some traveling and want something that has great reviews but won’t break your budget, you could consider the American Tourister wheeled duffel bag. The dimensions on this bag are 12″ x 12″ x 22″ and is the lightest of the three at only 3.5 pounds. This is a great bag if you are willing to travel by train, bus, or car, or if you use an airline that doesn’t charge for bags. The 22″ x 12″ x 12″ is a great shape and size, but won’t meet the airline carry-on maximum restrictions that allow items to fit under the seats (22″ x 14″ x 9″). Other than that, this is a tremendous option for the price. Normally, the American Tourister piece lists for $90. Right now, Amazon has it priced at about half that, for $47.96.
