Luggage & Briefcases - General

Even in an age when baggage hassles are prompting many travelers to pack lighter, the need for luggage remains constant. Bags and cases will always be required to transport travel essentials whether used for a trans-Atlantic flight, cross-country trek, weekend getaway, or a skip across town for a one-night sleepover.

The options for luggage and briefcases are almost endless. There are trunks, suitcases, overnighters, duffels, garment bags, train cases, makeup bags, dopp kits, and more. Brand choices are equally expansive including American Tourister. SwissGear. Tumi. Hartmann, and Louis Vuitton. Depending on needs, wants, and individual preferences, choices are limited only by supply and budget.

The same holds true for business bags. When it comes to briefcases, selections are available in myriad forms, from off-the-shelf Kenneth Cole laptop carriers to limited- edition blast-proof Halliburton attaché cases and vintage doctor-style leather satchels.
