What makes the best travel bags?

Posted by on

Travelling can be a bit stressful, from the journey to the airport to the car park, waiting for the bus transfer in the cold and then a busy airport with no seating in the best cafes. If, like us, you spend your life trying to make it as calm and easy as possible; maybe a taxi is easier, perhaps I could upgrade to speedy boarding, should I arrive later so I don’t have to hang around, or earlier so I have loads of time? Of course it’s all worth it when you touch down in a hot and sunny land and all your troubles melt away for 10 days before you have to do it all over again.


One stress you don’t need, and we’re here to help with, is choosing your luggage. When picking your perfect carry-on, weekender, holdall, backpack or travel bag there are a few things to consider. This is a bag you will, ideally, have for life, or at least for a long time, so it’s important you choose something that you’re going to love forever.


Firstly consider what type of traveller you are; do you like to check-in your bag so you don’t have to carry it around, or do you prefer to keep it with you so you don’t have to impatiently wait at baggage claim whilst wearing your snugly travel tracksuit in the 30 degree heat of your destination airport? Either way our Vintage Child holdall range has got you covered. Our bags are cabin size for the carry-on kings and also sturdy and strong enough to make it through a journey in the hold for you check-in choosers.


How about your style? Do you prefer a polished, sophisticated look, perhaps you’re going on a business trip, a conference or to a wedding and want to keep your appearance sharp? Or are you more of a laid back traveller who loves a rustic, rugged look? We have a wide range of leathers to suit all tastes, fashions and finishes. Our Conker Brown and Burnt Umber leather has a perfectly polished surface that is ideal for your smarter looks whilst our Brushed Wax bags will give you a much more paired down look. All our leathers are robust, classic and will age beautifully to form a charming patina, the more you use it the better it gets.


Finally let’s talk about functionality. Do you want something that’s as big as you can carry, a bag that will use the maximum allocated cabin space, or is something slightly smaller more suitable? Do you want a lot of pockets for your passport, phone, wallet etc. or do you like something clean and sleek? Do you prefer to carry your bag with grab handles or is a shoulder strap more convenient? Whatever your preference we have functional, stylish, durable travel bags for every requirement, check out our full range for your next adventure!
