. but I loved the color

. it used to fit under the airline seat?
We can’t live without them. With a grave yard of broken bags, where is that DIY website showing ways old luggage becomes shelves or go-carts or something? Believe me when I say this, "your luggage will make or break your getaway." There is NO nonsense to this statement. Wild Side Destinations is captive to the perfect and desirable luggage as well, so here’s at least one website I found that has a longer list of luggage brands to make choosing a bag even more difficult.
The parameters you set aside for luggage are next to our work, car, home and children priorities. I know what I like, I know the gorilla’s at the airport would like it too.
Sure, there’s more than one Top Ten, 10 Best-Selling, even consumer reports, but we’re all dreamers, we have our heart set on the journey, the perfect story, working it all out. These elements do not ensure complete logical, they are unique, like our cravings looking at a menu.
Damn it, I want the white skull on the side, and a smart luggage both. Can AWAY add a skull and make a bag white or can itTravel add a smart bag with charger and yes, both must expand? I want a have a build-a-bag or load-your-luggage site, a make-it so it won't break-it bag that does everything I stand around waiting at an airport gate needing.
Sure, life is full of challenges, we love making dreams come true, but how about finding that perfect bag to start with?
1. Decide How You’ll Use It
Is it for flying, driving, cruising, or some other purpose? For airplane travel, familiarize yourself with the luggage rules of the airlines you plan to patronize. If it’s for road trips, look for bags that are pliable enough to maximize your trunk space. For cruise ships—which stack baggage in the boat’s belly before departure—flat, rigid luggage is optimal.
2. Know Which Size You Need
This will depend mainly on the length of your trip and, if you are flying, airline luggage restrictions. It also depends on your own habits. Some people can pack for two weeks in their carry-on and an underseat personal item.
3. Carry-on or check-in? There is a science to this. Comparing check-in bags can literally take hours on-site comparing so many important details.
A. soft-side with zipper, everything goes into, it sits nicely on room luggage rack with top standing up against the wall, you have to dig or lift things up to reach what you put in first
B. hard-side, two sides, two even compartments to help you organize with a divider. Is anything going in bigger or wider?How does this fit on the luggage rack?
4. Consider How You’ll Store It
Once the luggage gets home, where will you put it? Hard-sided bags are pretty unflexible; soft-sided bags have a little more flexibility, hopefully you don't settle for a bag just based on where you're going to store it.
