    1. An affordable suitcase with a TSA lock and spinner wheels to make your trip through security (and beyond) seamless and stress-free.

    Amazon, amazon.com

    This bag is available in three sizes, so if you're anything like me and tend to overpack you might as well go for the biggest size from the start.

    Promising review: "For ease of travel; this luggage is truly perfect. I easily fit over a week's worth of clothes and shoes without stress. It comes with TSA locks already :). Hard case, rolls without issue, and big; however, not too big. Perfect for those who travel for more than a few days at a time." —Kindle Customer

    Get it from Amazon for $55.70+ (available in three sizes and four colors).

    2. An Away bag that'll make you want to plan more vacations thanks to its pop-out external battery charger, TSA-approved lock, spacious interior, and fun color options.

    Away / Via instagram.com

    The number one thing on my wedding registry was my Away bag and to this day i stand by that decision. I personally have The Bigger Carry-On and it is fantastic. I love that it has the battery pack to assure I'm never without my phone while traveling. It comes with a hidden laundry bag (amazing), a leather luggage tag, wheels that spin oh-so-smoothly, and an easy-to-use TSA-approved lock. What more could you wish for?

    Promising review: "Never ever have I ever taken a trip that was so smooth and easy, as this last one with any Away bag. It held everything perfectly and so orderly. The bag is beyond light so it was the first time I walked through airports and didn’t sweat and struggle with my bag. The design is FIERCE! Super stylish and even strangers were complimenting " —Valerie R.

    Get it from Away for $225+ (available in four sizes and 11 colors).

    3. A vintage-style luggage set you'll quickly become obsessed with because not only are they so chic, but they are lightweight, have two TSA locks, and pockets that would make Marie Kondo squeal with delight.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This set comes with one 24" suitcase and a 12" handbag. Beware: you may want to buy a fancy headscarf to complete ~the look~.

    Promising review: "I am blown away with how adorable this luggage set is!! There is a huge attention to detail, down to the lining, the insert that fit snugly into the large bag for more storage and organization. There's a matching luggage tag on the big bag, I didn't realize that! The extending handle is a really pretty rose gold color that looks so nice with the colors of the bags I selected (cream with brown leather trim). Even the spinner wheels match the brown of the leather.

    The small bag has a special strap that affixes it to the handle of the larger bag so it all stays put. And the final unexpected bonus is that this luggage is so darn cute, I actually have it sitting in the corner of my home office storing it in plain site because it doubles as a pretty home décor accessory when not in use!" —Elizabeth G

    Get a set of two from Amazon for $169 (available in three colors).

    4. A Minnie Mouse suitcase to accompany you on all of your trips to the Disney Parks. It has zippered packing compartments, so don't fret about all the ears- and mouse-shaped snacks you're likely to stock up on.

    shopDisney

    This marvelous Minnie bag was created by American Tourister — so you know it's the real deal. It has a variety of pockets to store all of your necessities (and some not-so-necessary items as well!). If you're gonna do Disney, you might as well do it in style.

    Promising review: "I love this bag! It is huge which is great when it is just my husband and I because I can fit both of our things in without having to take multiple bags. I love that you can definitely tell this is a Minnie Mouse luggage but that it's understated enough to be taken anywhere without me looking complete Disney obsessed lol. All around great luggage, I will always buy American Tourister luggage it is definitely worth the price." —DisneyObsessed96

    Get it from shopDisney for $139.95.

    5. A 3-piece set of hardshell spinner luggage, made of durable anti-scratch plastic that'll actually hold up against the rough 'n' tumble travel experience.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This set comes with a two-year travel warranty, so if for some reason your luggage is destroyed (or lost) you can easily get another set. The kit comes with three pieces (20-inch, 24-inch, and 28-inches) and can be stored inside one another. Efficient just became your middle name.

    Promising review: "This luggage is awesome. We went to Hawaii for 10 days, it held all of our items plus a few extra on the trip home. The suitcases are lightweight and roll with ease. I loved the zippered sections, nothing fell out. The wheels roll well, especially in the busy airport. Outsides are very durable. You can pull the handle up and set your backpack or extra bags on top nothing falls off. This is the best luggage I have owned so far." —Amazon Customer

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $139.99+ (also available in a set of four and 13 colors).

    6. Or a 3-piece of Calpak luggage you've probably seen on Instagram. It surprisingly lives up to the hype thanks to its trendy coloring, center zip divider, two zip pockets, and two slip pockets.

    Essence Gant / BuzzFeed

    BuzzFeed Editor, Essence Gant, loves her Calpak luggage set. Here's what she had to say about the set:

    "I'm actually in love with this three-piece luggage set from Calpak, and I honestly can't remember the last time anything or anyone made me feel so complete. You may've seen the brand on IG because it's cute and trendy and photographs well. But I like it because their luggage is just as practical as it is stylish. For starters, each piece fits into the piece that's the next size up. So the small carry on (22” x 14” x 8.5”) fits inside the medium luggage (26” x 16” x 10.5”), and the medium luggage fits inside of the large (30” x 19” x 12”). This is ideal if you're living in a small space or want to use your closet for as many shoes as possible and not a bunch of clunky suitcases. Also, it fits a lot of stuff inside because the bottom and top are hollow, so you can pack things past the rim and still have room to zip it closed."

    7. An expandable suitcase with a stylish geometric design on the front that'll help you locate it right away when it makes its way down the baggage claim conveyor belt.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    It also has a built-in, recessed TSA lock, a hard shell, and 360-degree spinner wheels.

    Promising review: "Overall this is an impressive piece of luggage. The green color is helpful — non-black luggage is easy to spot come baggage carousel time. To test the sturdiness of the luggage, I threw the suitcase down the stairs 10 times (something I do with all luggage) and it emerged unscathed for the most part. The inside has two compartments for easier separation and packing of clothing. Throw in some packing cubes and a garment folder and you’re set to pack more than a week’s worth of clothes. The luggage handles well — it’s surprisingly light and fairly maneuverable. As someone who flies 100k miles a year to nearly 10 counties, I tend to destroy luggage that’s checked and this is inexpensive enough to not feel too bad if it breaks or is destroyed but not cheap enough to worry about it surviving a single flight. A good bargain." —Nick

    Get it from Amazon for $69.99+ (available as a single bag, in sets of two or three, in three sizes and five colors).

    8. A suitcase featuring a cheeky saying on the front that would get anyone excited about traveling. It's also extremely easy to tote around the airport and has tons of room for your clothes, toiletries, and souvenirs.

    Heather Braga / BuzzFeed, Macbeth Collection / Via instagram.com

    In addition to my Away luggage, I have a 29-inch Macbeth Collection bag. Margaret Josephs is one of my favorite Real Housewives cast members, it's true, but she also makes a fantastic suitcase! I took it with me on the subway (which is no easy feat) and had zero issues. The wheels moved effortlessly and in multiple directions. The bag also features a five-year manufacturer's warranty.

    Get it from Bed Bath and Beyond for $84.99+ (available in two sizes and in black or mint).

    9. A carry-on with over 2.7K positive reviews, a must-have for frequent travelers who are sick and tired of replacing suitcases year after year.

    Walmart

    This lil' luggage features reflex rubber carry handles, TONS of packing space, and a deluxe full lining pocket that'll provide a second packing compartment for the too-many pairs of shoes you're forever taking with you. There's also an expansion zipper for when you inevitably over-buy during your vacation. The best part? It comes with a 10-year warrantee!

    Promising review: "I bought this for my trip to South Korea. Seoul in general is centered around seven mountains! This bad boy handled all the walking up and down countless mountain side slopes, and multiple times on the subway train. It got a little scuffed during the flights, but no dents or deep scratches. In all honesty I could not have asked for a better luggage my first time abroad." —Kaela23

    Get it from Walmart for $79 (available in 11 colors).

    10. A 2-piece set of luggage that'll keep all your items safe and sound regardless of if you're traveling for a weekend or going off the grid.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    Promising review: "This suitcase is amazing. It looks tiny, but like the Tardis it's bigger on the inside. I was looking for a carry-on suitcase to take with me to Melbourne. I managed to fit a month's worth of clothes plus extras. This suitcase makes my soft large one useless. It's also more resistant to wear and tear since it has a hard case enclosure.

    The following is what was in my suitcase. Prepare to be amazed.

    3 large print books and 1 paperback

    7-inch Sewercide record

    2 pairs of sandals

    7 shirts

    5 band T-shirts

    3 tank tops

    3 pairs of yoga pants

    5 pairs of shorts

    1 dress

    4 Victoria's Secret bras with padding

    Lingerie

    7 pairs of socks

    Pullover Exhumed hoodie

    Underbust Corset

    Swimsuit

    2 sarongs

    Death fabric poster

    Makeup bag and 1 Urban Decay eye shadow palette

    Jewelry

    Contacts." —Kathy Villagomez

    Get a set of four from Amazon for $139.99+ (available in sets of two or three, in three sizes and 12 colors).

    11. Or an expandable bag from American Tourister you can totally rely on to hold all your stuff and make you look cool while strutting through the airport.

    Amazon

    This spinner luggage is about to become your preferred travel buddy. It has a book opening case with a mesh divider to keep your stuff organized (especially once you start wearing clothes and want to separate clean from dirty). It also comes with a 10-year warranty, so don't worry about inevitable dings and damage.

    Promising review: "Okay, so the 360 wheels are everything, I actually had fun taking it all around. Design is beautiful inside and out, made packing so much easier with what feels like double the room of an average suitcase." —Yenny

    Get it from Amazon for $59.99+ (available in sets of two or three, in three sizes, and seven styles).

    12. A 34-inch Herschel suitcase with a two-way zip closure, TSA-approved lock, compression straps, top and side carry handles, and a classic aesthetic you'll never tire of.

    Nordstrom

    Most bags are 29 inches, but this bad boy is a boastful 34-inches! You can count on it to hold anything and everything. A hair dryer? Definitely. Spare towels? Yep. Those three snow globes you know your nieces and nephews will obsess over for weeks? Yep, those too.

    Get it from Nordstrom for $200.

    13. A 5-piece luggage set in a variety of sizes, guaranteed to make sure you'll have enough space for anything and everything the next time you get ready to jet.

    Target

    Say "see ya'" to your packing problems, because this set has got you COVERED. With spinner suitcases ranging from 21-inches to 28-inches and two additional little travel kits, your only concern can be whether to order a piña colada or a strawberry daiquiri when you get to the beach.

    Promising review: "I desperately needed a new suitcase because the wheels stopped rolling on my old one. This luggage is so much better! No need to pull your suitcase behind you; this one stands up. You get three different size suitcases, one carry on bag, and one cosmetic bag. And they all fit inside one another to save space at home. I’m excited to use this in my upcoming trips. It’s absolutely perfect!" —Sara Vasquez

    Get a set of five from Target for $114.99.

    14. A piece of luggage that'll bring the ease of a rolling suitcase with the style and storage options of a duffle bag into one functional item. It's basically the dream bag you never knew you needed.

    amazon.com, amazon.com

    This bag has EIGHT easily accessible pockets. That's the stuff packing dreams are made of, friends.

    Promising review: "Now I don’t have to carry a bag with straps digging into my shoulders. Great carry-on bag that fits perfectly in overhead bin of aircraft. If you pack smart, there’s no need for checked luggage. This bag will hold everything for a week at the beach including two pairs of denim jeans. I also had more than enough room for packing clothes needed for layering in a colder climate and carrying two pairs of shoes. Hubby has the same size in black and he loves this bag as much as I do. I don’t think we’ll ever check luggage again. Awesome bag!" —J del

    Get it from Amazon for $29.88+ (available in 26 styles).

    15. A sleek Samsonite luggage set you'll want the TSA to do an extra check on just so someone else can appreciate how wonderfully efficient it is for packing.

    Amazon

    Don't be surprised if the flight attendants "ooh" and "aah" while assisting you with your bag.

    Promising review: "I purchased the Samsonite 28" Spinner for business and personal travel. The suitcase looks great, I purchased charcoal, and it is LARGE with multiple pockets. I fully understand this will likely be scratched after being loaded and unloaded and thrown about by airport attendants.

    I also like the zipper lock feature. I understand others have commented about its integrity because it's made of plastic. I figure, if it breaks I'll use one of my TSA approved locks. I'm not down scoring because this isn't a necessity, but rather a nice-to-have.

    It's expandable and comes with a soft cover. For the price I paid I don't think there's a better suitcase on the market. It looks good, has a quality name, and will fit in with other business travelers (who've often paid 4-5x the price)." —Amazon Steve

    Get it from Amazon for $89+ (available in a set of three, in three sizes, and eight colors).

    Now you'll have enough room to pack the extra five outfits you were debating AND buy unnecessary souvenirs!
