Bags and Luggage
Flickr Pool Picks

Fans of Away luggage, and that includes MUG, like their gentle prices, stylish but sturdy bags, and a Carry-On ($225) with a built-in, ejectable TSA-compliant battery allowing you to charge your phone and tablet wherever you are. You can buy online or in their store at 10 Bond [Lafayette/Great Jones Alley].

Briggs & Riley makes excellent, stylish bags backed by a lifetime guarantee. In addition to their airline luggage, check out their smaller pieces, too, including the Micro Messenger pictured here, $249. It won't hold everything (hence the "micro"), but it's great for walking around the city as well as for travel.

For those on the road at night during their travels, Tumi has introduced Tundra, luggage with luminescent green fabric. The Davis Backpack is $475.

We've used various Waterfield bags and wallets over the years and they never let you down. Their Cargo Laptop Bag has a padded laptop pocket, Ipad pocket, a waterproof zipper, goldish-orange-colored lining for visibility when you're looking for something, front flap for easy access, and many other thoughtful touches. $349

Använda is a bag with an attitude. Created through an Indiegogo campaign (they've raised $1,715,374), the brand's tagline is A Great F*cking Bag. Delivery of the backpack begins next month, so we shall see. Starts at $69.

The Spectra 2.0 from Victorinox, $349.99, has a clever quick access door that allows you to find important stuff without rummaging. They have stores at Rock Center and 99 Wooster [Prince/Spring].

Rimowa, from Cologne, was founded in 1898, launching their aluminum trunk in 1937. Today, the Cabin, will set you back $1000 but will be around for several lifetimes. The store is at 535 Mad [54th/55th]

Other popular brands include Delsey, Samsonite, Travelpro, IT Luggage, Osprey, and Genius Pack.
