As a true traveler, you've probably spent lots of hours painstakingly browsing through luggage just to make sure you're choosing the right one for you, but just in case you're still unsure whether to go for a popular brand or a tried-and-tested pick, here are things you need to keep in mind when shopping for your traveling partner.

1. Durability

You need to be assured that your luggage can withstand being tossed and flung around in airports. But it's not just the body you should worry about; inspect the wheels, handles, and zippers to make sure they are of good quality so they won't give up on you over time.

2. Weight

Getting luggage that isn't heavy in itself can help you worry less about airline weight limits.

3. Expandability

Who wants to carry more when traveling, right? The smart thing to do here is to get luggage that expands without exceeding the airline's required size dimensions, especially if you want to fly with just one carry-on.

4. Safety Features

We all want to make sure our valuables are safe when we're traveling. That said, better look for unique safety features when luggage shopping. Nowadays, you can find bags with GPS trackers, fingerprint lock system, and even a Bluetooth tracking device!
