I travel a lot, usually flying back “home” to California to visit family and friends. Yes, I still refer to California as home. I almost lost my driver’s license yesterday (a CA license) and panicked! I’m not ready to get a Texas driver’s license and be an official Texas girl! So every month I hop on a plane back to Southern California to get my fix in.
So I’ve gone through a lot of carry on bags, always purchasing based on affordability and never on quality. They usually end up ripping, broken zippers (my fault for over packing) or broken wheels. It can be frustrating. So when I tried out SwissGear luggage, I was excited to find not only a chic option, but one that holds up better than I expected. And without breaking the bank! I tend to opt for all black luggage – always a fun time if it needs to be checked. Really stands out from the rest, you know?
But I was immediately drawn to this gorgeous, white hard side spinner option. This SwissGear luggage is twenty inches long making it the perfect size for carry-on. And while it looks thin, it holds a surprising amount of clothing and shoes (you can never bring too many on a trip). It also expands easily without risking the zipper breaking.
When Steven and I travel together, he usually sticks with a backpack – it’s the manliest version of a carry on, according to him. He takes the essentials and throws everything in a backpack so I knew this ScanSmart TSA Laptop Backpack would be perfect for him. I almost always take my laptop when I travel, but I’ve ripped leather totes carrying it in the past. This backpack has a really cool option where you can completely unzip the laptop compartment in the backpack so that it lays flat and extended from the backpack making it a a much easier process when going through TSA security. No need to remove it from the bag! If you’ve gone through TSA with a laptop before, then you know how much of hassle it can be. This is a much easier option!
The ScanSmart backpack also has a strap on the back that allows it to attach to the luggage handle when extended, simply by sliding it on. This is a huge help when traveling, especially if we need to make a run for it to catch the plane. Guilty!
