The Best Travel Bags


If you’ve been reading my blog for quite some time, then you know that I love to travel. Whether it’s a quick weekend getaway, a week long road trip or an excursion in Europe, I simply love to travel and plan to do even more of it.

I wanted to share with all of you some of my favorite travel bags from backpacks and duffels to carry-on and full size luggage. There’s something for everybody no matter how big the trip!

I rely on backpacks no matter what kind of travel I’m doing. They make the best travel bags as they help disperse the weight evenly to prevent any back problems (which I’m prone to having) and they free up my hands for a duffel bag, purse or my camera. When I’m traveling with my camera, which is 99% of the time, then I’m usually grabbing my beloved WANDRD PRVKE camera backpack. This allows me to travel with a camera body + additional lenses, my laptop, a tripod, etc.

The backpack that I’m really excited to start traveling with this year is our very own Modish Wanderer backpack! Yep, here’s the first sneak peek at one of our lifestyle/adventure products that will be available soon. I’m so in love with this backpack. It’s definitely stylish AND it’s incredible functional with tons of pockets and storage. I can’t wait to use it for hikes, camping and weekend trips!

When it comes to duffel bags, I personally use the Lo & Sons Catalina tote. The bottom zipped compartment is perfect for shoes or cosmetic cases and you’d be surprised with how much you can fit in here. It’s perfect for 2-4 day trips!

As for luggage, I desperately want a piece of AWAY carry-on luggage but I think that’s simply because it has a built-in battery to charge anything with a USB cable as well as a TSA-approved lock and smart functionality interiors. It’s not a “need,” but definitely a want!

Again, if you’ve followed along here for awhile now then you know I love my trusted Eagle Creek luggage / packing cubes. I’m loyal to this brand because well … their stuff works. I have a piece of their 32″ duffel style luggage and am really happy with it. I personally use it paired with their cubes so I have some sort of travel organization going on in there. Guys, if you aren’t using packing cubes, get on it!

I’m off to Colorado again on Thursday for another fun weekend of skiing with family!

Keep Living a Stylized Life.

  1. I am so excited for Modish Wanderer! I just followed your facebook and Insta! 😉 Great post on these travel bags. We always bring a backpack to be able to be hands free. Eagle Creek makes great products – we use the packing cubes and also the “envelopes” – they come with a folding board and you can fit so many shirts into one. We use Pacsafe for our full size luggage for peace of mind when traveling abroad. Love following along, Kristin! Have a great day!

    1. Hey Erin!! Thank you, I’m so excited about Modish Wanderer too! I have the envelopes too, you can’t definitely fit a lot in a little with those. I don’t know what Pacsafe is, I’ll have to look that up. Thanks for stopping by, chat soon!
