Are you on the lookout for a very versatile wheeled briefcase/carry on bag that has a feminine design? It’s hard to find business cases for women that can double as your carry on bag for leisure travel and not look out of place on the trip. Lipault Paris is a highly coveted luggage brand because of its pleasing colors and European looks, ultra lightweight designs and overall durability. They now have a 2-wheeled versatile option that can work well for a 2-3 day trip called the Lipault Vvertical Wheeled Brief. You can you use it for business or leisure and it is meant to make travel easy. If you don’t overstuff it, it should even fit under your aircraft seat.
The vertical design is great for wheeling about in narrow aisles and crowded passageways and the various compartments make for a very organized packing experience. Women will find it easy to handle because of its light weight. If you prefer a non-wheeled option from Lipault, there are two styles to choose from that will make excellent overnight or weekend bags.
The brand also has a full-sized 4 wheeled carry on upright from the same collection.
Of course, Lipault is not for the budget minded luggage buyer. Just as its pieces come with a European aesthetic, so do its prices. If you’re looking for something more affordable, we have some very nice rolling briefcases from other brands too. The Samsonite Hyperspace spinner boarding bag is a particularly popular option.
