But in a world filled with dozens of luggage sets, choosing the right one for your particular needs may be a lot more difficult than you think – especially when you have to juggle the need to take all your essentials with the need to be able to manage all your pieces alone.

There’s a large range of good luggage sets to choose from but if you are in search of a great luggage set, then make sure to review our top picks below.

It’s difficult to find a set that looks good and is highly functional as well, especially if you need adequate packing space, durable exterior elements and easy access to a few items at all times. We suggest that you look for a set that comes with a tote bag since it tends to be better-looking for women and easy to carry, but if it doesn’t then you should consider buying a tote separately. Luggage with several internal and external pockets is also desirable to keep everything organized throughout. If you’re specifically looking for vintage style luggage we have a separate list of options for that!

– Rolling duffle: 18 x 11 x 11 inches; weight: 4.6 lbs.
– Cosmetic satchel: 11.5 x 10 x 8 inches; weight: 1.4 lbs.

Pros

• One positive aspect noted is the ease of maneuvering and carrying. The uprights have 2 in-line skate wheels that roll smoothly on any surface, making no sound. The luggage also has top, side and bottom carry handles, enabling you to easily lift and carry each bag if needed.

• Lastly, we appreciate the variety in included pieces with the duffel and cosmetic satchel.

Cons

• One aspect that could have been better is weight distribution. Several customers have reported that the uprights tend to fall forward when packed, so your most fragile items might be put at a risk if placed on the front. You must make sure to carefully pack your belongings in order to put weight on the back/bottom to prevent the uprights from falling.

• The handle of the uprights also seems to be poorly made, as a few customers have reported the largest one to break very quickly, during their second or third trip so you may not be able to transport very heavy items in it.
