Top 10 Luggage Brands

Top 10 Luggage Brands

Being an avid traveler, bags and suitcases have become an integral part of my life. Whenever I am on the move, it is my luggage which accompanies me everywhere. Sometimes selecting the perfect mate for your journey can become a little tricky. To make your job a little easier, I have prepared this list of top 10 luggage brands which produces top notch gears for its consumers. I know you must be having all sorts of doubts in your mind regarding price, quality and durability of bags. As a solution to all these questions, I have picked the best luggage producing companies which are apt to cross the above mentioned benchmarks.

Most of the names in my list are quite visible in the International market but that does not mean all the brands are necessarily available in every country. Mostly when it comes to travel gear, people don’t like switching companies all the time. They persist with a single brand and that is the main reason why most of the companies have a very loyal set of fans. Traits like diversity and versatility have also been taken into consideration while preparing this countdown of luggage brands. Following are the names which I feel are the current leaders in the market of travel and luggage.

#10 Ogio

The first name in my list is that of Ogio, a brand known for producing an extraordinary line of suitcases.  Apart from suitcases, Ogio also has some decent backpacks and layover travel bags. Most of its travel bags have lots of pockets which prove to be very essential while travelling. This brand may not go down well with people who like their luggage to be clean and classy because at times these extra pouches give a very clumsy look to the bags. Durability factor of its luggage is really good; they will stay with you for years without actually getting worn out. There are not many options when it comes to style and design, but its quality makes up for that.

#9 Eagle Creek

If you are a guy who is ready to pay a little extra for adding few years life to your luggage then Eagle Creek is the brand for you. Another thing which I think is pretty appreciable of this brand is that it lays a lot of emphasis on producing lightweight luggage bags. It is one quality which most of the consumers look for. Who will like to carry that extra burden of luggage on their shoulders anyways? Talking about the handles and wheels of their bags, they are strong and sturdy. They are most likely to remain in the best of conditions even after years of usage. As I already told you, it’s only the price department which forces people to have second thoughts otherwise its very cool.

#8 American Tourister

Nothing flashy, no over the top designs, minimal complications, just pure class and elegance. This is basically what American Tourister is all about. This luggage brand focuses on quality more than anything else. It hardly tries experimenting; sticking to the traditional formula is what American Tourister believes in. This particular trait of theirs also goes against them on many occasions, as of now people are bored of the same old stuff and want to try something new. When it comes to the price section, it is more than decent. Last year when I was looking for a bag to tag along with me for a wedding, I actually ended up buying two, seeing the attractive offer they had.

#7 High Sierra

People often associate this company as one which can only produce good backpacks and hence underestimate there potential as all round luggage brand. Upright trolly bags are another category which I think High Sierra is really good at. They are lightweight and very attractive to look at. As far as the quality is concerned, you will find many other bags better than these but considering the price which they offer, probably not. High Sierra makes sure that you are never short of pockets for keeping those miniature but essential items. Most of its bags are flooded with pouches. I will suggest you not to go for its suitcases, they hardly make them and whatever they make is not up to the same standards.

#6 Travelpro

Travelpro is one of those versatile brands which have something in store for everyone. The collection which it offers is something which really needs to be appreciated. If I have to pick a particular category of luggage which I like about this brand then it would have to be the expandable trolley bags. It is these bags which come to the rescue when you run out of space for that one extra item. The external pockets in these bags are pretty huge; they can even be used to keep laptops. Overall Travelpro is a brand which is capable of satisfying your needs to requirements up to a great extent but if you are looking for something exceptional then this may not be the most apt choice for you.

#5 Samsonite

Coming in at number five in my list of top 10 luggage brands is Samsonite, a company which offers an astonishing blend of quality and style. The locking mechanism used by this brand is of high standards, it hardly wears down with time. I don’t like the collection which they offer in the smaller size department of bags but when it comes to the big or even giant ones, Samsonite is a real superstar. They are sturdy, wheels are smooth, handles are strong and the fiber is of immaculate strength and quality. Samsonite has now become very conscious about the finishing and polishing of bags, as it eyeing the upscale market where the big daddies of luggage industry play. It is also a major reason why you have to empty your wallets more than usual for buying one of their items.

Known for its quality and style

#4 Patagonia

Cool, stylish and compact, these are the qualities which you can easily find in most of the products manufactured by Patagonia. Features like webbing handles and side panels are there in the bags to make your experience of travelling less tiresome. Aluminum framework is being used inside the bigger luggage bags like suitcases and roller ones. This beautiful combination of metal, fiber and fabric plays a vital role insuring the longevity of the bags. They have many water repellant bags for people who have to carry their luggage in adverse conditions. I would like to give backpacks by Patagonia a special mention. They are currently one of the most popular companies in the entire world when it comes to manufacturing funky backpacks.

#3 Briggs and Riley

Founded in the year 1993, Briggs and Riley is a New York based company which is famous for its everlasting luggage. This company is so confident about its products that they give a lifetime guarantee on them which also includes airline damages. It is Briggs and Riley which introduced the concept of NXpandable system which provides you with more storage capacity when you expand the bag. Saying in the words of Briggs and Riley ‘Simple as that’, explains the whole ideology behind their working style. They focus on ultimate quality more than anything else and that is one of the main reasons why people have shown so much faith on them over the years. Now they are at number three in my list of top 10 luggage brands but seeing their constant progress, they are bound go even higher.

#2 Tumi

At number two we have Tumi, a very reputed brand when it comes to prestige travel and classy business bags. One of the major reasons why I have ranked Tumi so high in this list is because of the functional superiority they have established over the other brands. Their innovative concepts and new designs have led them to the business in the recent years. I will like to tell you once again about the business travel bags which they manufacture. There are very companies in the market which have the mettle to compete with Tumi in terms of design, quality and versatility. With around 125 patents to their name, Tumi is continuously bringing in path breaking ideas which will revolutionize the face of luggage industry.

#1 Victorinox

Ruling the charts of top 10 luggage brands is this Swiss giant Victorinox, a company which produces everything from knifes to watches with same grace. Luggage is also of one its specialty and being a veteran company in this department, it is the benchmark of top notch bags. Among all its travel gear, the most famous ones are the suitcases. The suitcases are created using the best of engineering mechanisms which ensures that they stand way above the rest. These bags are extremely sturdy in nature and can manage easily even in the extreme conditions. One thing which I would like to tell you before you are out buying them, they come at a hefty price which can easily sway your mind against them. This staggering price is because of the excellent quality which they have and another reason for that is the brand name which they have built over decades. Once you buy it, it will be worth every penny you spend on it.
