You may actually seek out layovers once you’ve tried the PROPS carry-on, offering a patent-pending leg prop system that converts your hard-surface bag into a personal workstation wherever you find a seat. The clever design takes away none of your interior capacity and adds little weight to this impressive 9-pound bag. Transforming layovers from deal breakers to deal makers, this workhorse ensures productivity on the go, but it’s no gimmick: It’s equally useful as a suitcase, offering easy access to contents with a top-open lid, interior compression and expansion zipper. $399.


Hotel rooms without enough drawers are no longer a concern with The Castle Classic from Royce & Rocket, which comes with its own flat-fold shelving system that easily snaps open into a self-contained wardrobe wherever you are. Turning the thorns of living out of a suitcase into an elegant art, the generously sized Castle is as sleek as it is innovative, returning some of the lost romance of travel to your trips. Opt for The Full Set for matching packing cubes to maximize space and organization behind a privacy screen that doubles as a dust guard. The Full Set, $700.

With an intelligent redesign of the classic Baseline luggage, Briggs & Riley’s Expandable Spinner collection reinvents an American favorite. Push-button expansion adds increased packing capacity that easily com-
presses after zippering, great for checked bags and invaluable
for carry-ons. Baseline complements the soft interior with a built-in garment folder and foam roll bar for wrinkle reduction in business and formal wear, and an exterior leather detail can be monogrammed for instant identification in busy airports. From $799.

The new Turenne suitcase from Delsey Paris is the lightest hardside bag in the brand’s entire collection, weighing in at less than 8.5 pounds
for the largest suitcase in the line and a mere 5 pounds for the carry-on. An antimicrobial interior lining helps prevent luggage odors, and the included shoe bag keeps clothes clean and further protected. Multiple mesh pockets offer increased organization, allowing you to maximize the superior packing potential of this lightweight luxury suitcase. From $299.99.
