With the holidays just around the corner, many of us have plane tickets home or a vacation spot. Whether you’re headed on a tropical getaway to escape the freezing temperatures (jealous), home to your family, or just a few hour road trip away for a breath of fresh air, one essential that you can’t live (erm…leave) without is a good suitcase. And, while a weekend jaunt may only call for your favorite carry-on or weekender, a longer trip—especially one that just so happens to be during the biggest gift-giving season of the year—requires a bigger bag. Much bigger. To help, we’ve rounded up the biggest suitcases on the market that are sure to fit all of your needs, wands and nice-to-haves. Because having outfit and accessory options is nice.
With so many suitcases on the market, finding a high-quality checked bag that doesn’t look like all of the others at baggage claim, is durable enough to last you for many years, and will actually keep all of your belongings conveniently stored and organized is no easy feat. Some are hard top, others are soft. Some are neutral toned, others bright and patterned. Some have pockets galore, and others are a cavernous, Mary Poppins style hole that is easy to haphazardly pack in a mad dash to the airport.
To narrow down the hunt, we made sure these suitcases are large (but still manageable), lightweight, easy to maneuver through a crowd, and easy on the eyes. Behold: The best, biggest suitcases that we want to take with us everywhere.
