Looking to upgrade your luggage? Here are eight carry-on and check-in baggage picks you won’t want to leave home without.
After being grounded by the pandemic for three years, we can’t blame you for wanting to treat yourself to some fresh new luggage for your next adventure. Whether you’re packing light for a quick weekend getaway or getting set for an extended stay, here are our top picks for carry-on and check-in baggage from our most trusted luggage brands, including LOJEL, Rimowa, Samsonite and more. Ready, jet-set, go!
LOJEL Cubo, From $2,300
Make like a travel influencer and hop on the LOJEL bandwagon. The lust-worthy luggage from this premium design-driven brand have an obvious aesthetic appeal, but are also famously functional. The international bestselling Cubo (a favourite of ours) is loved for its durable shell, innovative flat-top opening and expandable body. Get a feel of the quality for yourself at one of LOJEL’s physical stores, and check out the mix-and-match sets and bundles online to snag some great deals.
DELSEY CACTUS, From $3,271
We admit it, we’d pick this suitcase purely for its blue gradient design. But looks aside, the DELSEY CACTUS is built to last, with reinforced corners and a patented ultra-secure fastening system which claims to be three times more resistant to unauthorised opening than a conventional zip.
TUMI Extended Trip Expandable Packing Case, $8,500
Planning an extended escapade across the globe? This expandable packing case is lightweight and roomy – perfect for long trips or spontaneous shopping sprees. The durable shell is made with recycled polycarbonate and is treated with an anti-microbial coating to prevent the growth of bacteria, mildew and mould.
RIMOWA Hybrid, From $7,600
Coming in glossy white or matte black, the sleek RIMOWA Hybrid combines two of the world’s most advanced materials – a unique aluminium-magnesium alloy and the supremely lightweight polycarbonate – to withstand a lifetime of globe-trotting.
Samsonite Magnum ECO, From $2,950
While the Samsonite Magnum ECO scores points for its lightweight design and minimal aesthetic, its coolest feature is that its exterior shell is made of recycled yoghurt cups and interior lining is made of recycled PET bottles!
American Tourister CURIO, $2,080
Trusted by generations of travellers, this affordable pick understands that functional luggage is an essential for smooth travels. We love American Tourister’s CURIO for its space-efficient 80/20 construction which allows for less restricted packing.

PARAVEL Aviator, $3,900
Sustainable luggage brand PARAVEL is the proud purveyor of the world’s first carbon-neutral case. Not only is the Aviator made with recycled polycarbonate, recycled aluminium and vegan leather, but the brand also promises to offset all carbon emissions generated from sourcing, assembly and shipping (plus the estimated emissions of its first trip with you!).
Victorinox Werks 6.0 Boarding Tote, From $3,250
Ideal for a quick weekend getaway or overnight business trip, the Werks 6.0 Wheeled Boarding Tote is famously compact yet spacious. What’s more, this pick features a handy padded tablet-sized pocket and expands by 4cm for those who struggle to pack light.
