Upgrade Her Luggage

Three things to look for in new luggage this year: style, security and storage.

No woman wants a big bag crowding up space in her closet, so that’s where the growing trend of compressibility comes it. Biaggi is the most stylish option for compressible luggage. It comes in a wide range of bright colors and allows you to pop that suitcase flat so you can store it under the bed or in small closet spaces.

For security, Briggs & Riley‘s new hardcase TORQ hits the market this week. There are a few perks to the bag. The extra-wide wheelbase is designed to prevent tipping – even when mom has overpacked. The wheel base is great, but this suitcase also offers a lot of security for hardshell designs with the biggest improvement being the front-facing pocket with its own locking system.

For a stylish option with hardshell luggage, check out Antler , whose lightweight Liquis collection uses the polycarbonate in a design that is supposed to resemble a waterfall. The design builds in strength that can bend, but won’t crack. The best part? The hardshell technology is just 4.8 pounds.
