A Long Term Luggage Relationship

While you don't need to look for the most expensive items, you'll save money and the environment if you buy good-quality sturdy bags with plenty of trips left in them. When choosing a bag, keep the following in mind:

  • You need a frame if you'll be carrying heavier loads
  • Front loading panels make things more accessible, but zippers can also let rain in
  • When you pull on a seam, the stitching should be barely discernible
  • Hip belts help center the weight of a heavier load
