A good suitcase doesn't just provide you with essential storage for your belongings. It is an important part of making a trip free of hassle, frustrations, and unwanted accidents, too. We’ve all been scarred by luggage that’s not quite up to scratch: dragging a suitcase with faulty wheels across cobblestone streets or the embarrassment of seeing a strap on our weekend bag break in half as we’re trying to catch a flight. These are not memories we’d like to relive anytime soon, if we can help it.
To truly travel like a pro, you need high-quality, durable travel accessories that promise to never let you down. Hard-shell suitcases that can withstand months-long journeys with multiple changes in accommodation. Carryall bags with iron-clad reinforcements that won’t buckle under extra weight. Backpacks outfitted in weatherproof fabrics and strong zippers. While you’re more likely to find these items from fancier brands, there are also plenty of affordable options (yes, we're talking about Amazon luggage).
Ahead, we have rounded up the most durable luggage across different price points and travel needs. With these travel heavy-hitters, your next trip will be a real tour de force.
