Rimowa Essential Collection

Pros
  • Multiwheel system for easy movement
Cons
  • Dents as it protects your belongings

This bag is the king of all hard-shell cases, plus Bloomingdale’s home fashion director Kelley Carter’s favorite select. Rimowa’s lightweight suitcases make a bold statement with their tough matte exteriors. The tech features are also impressive, including a height-adjustable divider inside the suitcase and smooth wheels for easy steering through TSA. A full Rimowa set is an investment, but with a lifetime warranty, it’s well worth it.

Always choose a brand you can trust for checked luggage. Carter is partial to Tumi’s soft-side luggage. Its “special weave and coating make it extremely durable. And because it is a soft-side, there is more packing capacity,” she explains. “If you’re like me and need lots of options, this gives you the freedom to pack all your looks and edit when you get to your destination.”
