Choosing the right luggage pieces can be hard, and it's not something you'd want to do in a rush since shopping for one can get expensive.
When looking for the right bag to suit your travels, the first thing to consider is whether you want to get hard-shell or soft-sided luggage, and it really boils down to preference. "Hard-shell suitcases are typically lighter than their soft-sided counterparts, but if you’re looking for durability, interior organization, and exterior pockets, the latter takes the trophy," says a feature on Smart Parenting.
Given that, other factors that come into play would be the type of traveling you do, how often you go out, and where you go, as well as who you travel with the most (Tip: Always make sure to get a piece with pockets if you're traveling with kids!). This way, you'll know what your priorities are in choosing a brand and design.
