Take New Friends On The Road

Some of my readers prefer owning a set of vintage luggage. There is something about weathered leather or nostalgic train cases. However, sometimes a trip to the luggage store to buy a few pieces is a little more in order and helps you keep your oldies but goodies intact.

Nowadays, you cannot carry on as much as in the old days. Riding down the chute, and being tossed in a bin with other luggage causes wear and tear. Newer models are able to withstand that a bit. Designer luggage in distinct patterns or bold colors can also make it easier for you to find your bags once you are reunited with them. Tumi luggage offers a sport series in bright red, which is much easier to see in the sea of black bags, while hartman luggage offers tweed.

Also, it is worth noting that some older pieces may just not be suited for your laptop. Just like less and less people are traveling with wig cases, the laptop bag is more a sign of these times. Even if you are buying a regular suitcase, it would be more equipped to protect your valuable electronics. Among the Tumi luggage offerings, there are boarding bags that would suit electronics well.

Have fun on your next trip, but there are some cases where you may want to leave your old favorites at home and let the new kids take the abuse.
