We don’t cover travel gear often enough on PurseBlog, and that needs to be rectified. If you follow us on Instagram, you know our team travels frequently, and we love to show the bags we are carrying and what we see when we travel. However, I rarely show my travel gear, aside from my carry-on bag, but today I want to show you the luggage Vlad and I swear by.
As much as I love luxury brands, I don’t turn to them for my travel gear. Of course Louis Vuitton makes suitcases that many bag aficionados adore, but I prefer to have items from a brand that I know specializes in sturdy, functional luggage, but with a stylish twist here and there.
For the past year, the only suitcase that works for me is from the Tumi Tegra-Lite line. I have the Tegra-Lite Extended Trip Packing Case, and Vlad and I both have the carry-ons as well. It’s harder to be in love with your luggage than your handbags, but I can tell you that I am in love with mine.
The Tumi Tegra-Lite line is incredibly durable while remaining lightweight, as the name suggests. You can choose from a variety of colors, but I love the silver (Tegris) that I picked for my large luggage and Vlad added a little color with his orange carry-on. I love these suitcases because they just work so well and while they fit everything and anything I’d like them to, they aren’t too heavy or bulky like many others.
After using Tumi Tegra-Lite for over a year, I’d highly recommend it. Shop the line at Nordstrom for $445-$895.
