    1. A luggage and duffel bag hybrid guaranteed to comfortably fit 30 outfits and 12 pairs of shoes for your two day trip.,

    Promising review: "This thing rocks: it's amazing how much I can fit into it. The wheels and handle have proven reliable, and I like that it can be compressed more than a standard bag due to the soft, sloping top. Also love that it zippers all the way around in a full U-shape to streamline packing and unpacking, and gaining access to items while it's upright (say, while you're in line at the airport, etc.) is a breeze because you can easily open from the top and just grab what you need." β€”Lisa Tufano | THINK LIKE A BOSS LADY

    Get it from Amazon for $74.99 (available in six colors).

    2. A three piece set available in several vibrant colors, meaning you'll actually be able to spot your suitcase at baggage claim.,

    Hate colors? Don't worry! This set is also available in black.

    Promising review: "I bought these two years ago and have traveled with them over 20 times. From airports, camping, car travel, and cruises, these luggages are still going strong. Love the color (I have purple), and it's very easy to see at the airport. Airport baggage handlers are not always the most gentle, but I've had no problems with my purchase: the wheels are great, and handles and zippers work wonderfully." β€”Patricia Robinson, mrs

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $119.99 (available in 10 colors).

    Promising review: "Wow! This suitcase is amazing! In the last six weeks, I've flown Delta, United, Jet Blue, Southwest, and American, and I've been able to use this as a carry-on.

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99 (available in five colors).

    5. An inexpensive three piece set that will make your wallet scream, "THANK YOU!",
