There are many luggage brands that still ride on their built up reputation. So we reached out to frequent flyers to suggest the most dependable brands that will last through the abuse of baggage claims.
There are some rising brands that are quickly becoming leaders in quality versus price, so be sure to check out all the brands to see what they offer at your budget.
#1 Gopenguin Luggage
Disrupters in the carry-on market, GoPenguin have expertly manufactured a sleek, compact and, most importantly, durable product range, while aligning themselves with the high-end, female travel-influencer consumer.
They use Makrolon Polycarbonate Shell in their carry-on luggage, which is incredibly durable. It can withstand both strong impact, and high temperatures. The design of their carry-ons is sleek, yet simple.
Although men would get great value from their products, everything about their brand caters to the female traveler. Their carry-ons come in a range of colours, and other products in their range, such as tote and toiletry bags, are multi-compartment, and always compact.
Consider them the Apple of carry-ons, if such a phase could ever be coined. As Apple did with the home computer, GoPenguin have taken a previously ‘necessary’ product, luggage, and marketed it as a fashionable item, fit for any influencer’s Instagram shots.
#2 Trunki Original Kids Ride-On Suitcase

Sophisticated design and superior functionality — that’s the promise they make, and they deliver. 100% virgin polycarbonate material ensures it’s break-resistant, Hinomoto dual-caster wheels gives you the best mobility, and when compact, it expands to offer 45% more capacity.
