When we all travel, we have different needs to meet by the type of bags we are going to carry along for the ride. Maybe its a conference and you need to tote along to a laptop. Maybe you’re going to be stuffing snacks and kids’ activities on your carry-on for the flight. Maybe you need some sort of clutch for that one date night. Or maybe you need to find the trick to dealing with all three of these situations – I’ve been there!
This is clearly going to be based on your needs and what you prioritize as important features for a bag. We can all agree that we need the most space for our stuff, but function versus chicness will be a personal call. I opt to leave my Louis Vuitton carry all at home unless I am doing a short, local flight where it will be within my sight at all times. I’m probably 75% function and 25% aesthetics.
I’m going to give you the best bags that I have personally tested and can get behind. Each bag functions well for a few different scenarios, so I constantly keep them in rotation. I even included some husband approved bags for the guys.
