Dakine, Osprey, The North Face, Thule. Top 5 Best Suitcases for Travel

When it comes to vacation, the first decision to make (and this is often the most difficult of all) is where to go. Will you be flying to the other side of the world to discover the Australian Outback or do you prefer to explore the steep streets lined with colorful houses in San Francisco? The possibilities are almost infinite! However, the next choice you will have to make will be just as delicate: what do you pack? When you have limited space and a weight limit, finding the right suitcase if a must.

If you’re bound for a more backpack style trip, a suitcase may not be the best choice. For these trips, you’ll want to choose a high-volume backpack designed for hiking and multi-day trips. If your trip takes you to a single hotel with organized transport where you aren’t traveling from place to place, or you simply prefer suitcases, we’ve got just what you need.
