Best Vintage Style Luggage – Buying Guide 2017

NO NEED FOR A TIME MACHINE! TRAVEL WITH STYLE WITH THESE AMAZING VINTAGE STYLE LUGGAGES...


They always say that style comes back in cycles. One of the greatest styles of all time was what we now consider "vintage." I'm not talking about 30-40 years ago, I'm talking about the 1920's and 30's...years ago. This time was booming with life and, honestly, way more swag that we have today. The best part about their fashion was their travel style. We found some of the best vintage style luggage that are inspired by this area for you, so you can travel through time without the time machine.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST VINTAGE STYLE LUGGAGE

There's pretty much nothing better than having a break from the insane hair-pulling place you call work. For all of your workaholics out there, this is called a vacation. Yes, not everybody has the luxury of experiencing this glorious, generally 2 week long break from the real world. However, for those that do, it's not always as easy as 1, 2, 3 getting everything set up for your getaway.

First off, you need an awesome place to go. We are obviously huge fans of Korea, so if you're planning on visiting Seoul, check it out the best time to visit Seoul and try some of the best damn delicious Korean foods to satisfy your palette. You can also check out some of the best Korean travel blogs for tips on your trip. But first things first, you're going to need to pack.

Surprising, packing CAN be fun! It all just depends how you pack and what you're packing your goodies in. If you're more of the "roughing it" kind of person, you can check out travel backpacks for your outdoor adventure. Don't forget to get a travel daypack for your afternoon excursions. You can also grab an underseat carryon if you're flying somewhere out of town. But most importantly, if you want to travel in style and want to look great while bringing along all your necessities, you're going to definitely want to check out the best vintage style luggage. We broke down the essential qualifications that make these vintage style luggage perfect for your travel needs.

Size

First and foremost, you're definintely going to want to know what size is right for you since this will determine how much you can fit on your trip. If you're traveling somewhere that requires you to move your bag around frequently, you might want to pack lighter and keep within a 22 inch carryon.

Material

Second, the material that you're bag is built will be very important in case your bag experiences wear and tear on the road. Some bags are made of leather, while others may be polycarbonate or faux leather. It's really up to you in terms what you think fits your style needs as well as efficacy.

TSA

If you're traveling overseas, you might want to consider purchasing a carry-on sized bag. This will help you save time and money while traveling since international baggage fees can cost you an arm and a leg. 9 in. x 14 in. by 22 in. is the standard in the US.

Weight

Sometimes, bags will look the part, but they're definitely a burden to carry around if you're not the hulk. Choosing a bag that has a lighter weight will make traveling much easier especially if you're going to be lugging it up and down the upper head storage bins on a flight.

Durability

This category goes hand in hand with the material category; if the material is cheap, you're not going to have much durability. It might be wise to fork over an extra few dollars to ensure that you're happy with how well your luggage holds together. Unfortunately, your luggage may break during your trip.

Price

Of course, it is wise to know how much you're actually paying for your bag. If you're on a tighter budget, you may want to keep an eye out for the dollar signs. However, if you've got a wallet busting at the seems, then by all means, go for the gold!

Honestly, this design is by far our favorite, but of course this review is for you, but we know you will love it. The EDDAS Ethos luggage not only comes with a 20" or 22" spinner, it also comes with a cosmetic tote that can count as your personal item. The bags come in three different colors, but we love the map style outer PVC layer.

The luggage have a 2 wheel urethane system that moves around in all directions, making it very easy to pull and move. Even though these are hard shell trunk casese, they only weight 8.4 lbs, so you don't have to break your back to travel in style. The cosmetic tote comes with an adjustable shoulder strap so you can attach it to the alluminum telescoping handle or keep it around your shoulder.

All in all, this product gets the job done, allowing you to travel with style and keep all your belongings organized and in tact.

If you're into a lot of fun and wild colors, these are the bags for you. We definitely can appreciate colors that pop playing in a pop rock band inspired by Hello Kitty, so these are definitely on the top of our list. The outside is made from PVC leather and is a hardshell case that can withstand all sorts of hars conditions.

The wheels are constructed with ABS and are virtually silent when rolling across uneven territories. The aluminum telescoping handle is smooth to open and close when going through TSA. The outsode of the bag is also water resistant, so no need to worry about your goodies getting wet during poor weather on the road. You can buy each bag individually, or you can purchase a set with a stylish cosmetic tote as well.

We adore this bag because of its functionality and flashy colors. This bag is perfect for all of your travel needs
