Is traveling more on your New Year’s resolution list? Vinnie Van GO recommends these stylish, multi-functional carry-ons to sail through TSA, avoid fees and keep your belongings organized.
The sleek Incase NoviConnected carry-on is constructed of ultra-lightweight, durable, class-A Makrolon polycarbonate. Engineered for performance, NoviConnected has four smooth-glide hubless wheels and a built-in battery bank capable of simultaneously charging USB-C devices, including your MacBook and iPhone.
Touted as the “little black dress of luggage”, Away’s The Carry On was developed by its co-founders based on hundreds of travel stories from friends and seatmates, and designed for the way people actually travel. Away’s “thoughtful” luggage features unbreakable shells and built-in USB chargers. Inside are two compartments: one designed for clothes, the other for shoes, toiletries, and other hard objects. A nylon laundry bag separates clean clothes from dirty or wet items. The buckle down the compression pad can be used to clear up free space for maximum storage.
Who doesn’t hate bag fees? Etailer Ebags offers a selection of bags designed to beat them! Among its offerings include the SwissGear ScanSmart Backpack 1900. It stores your tech safely in the bag’s center with a unique butterfly pocket that checks through TSA without opening. Its professional Slim Laptop Backpack is perfect for those who like being super organized, with tons of pockets and a special “garage” for adaptors and cords. The LUCAS Wheeled Under the Seat Cabin Bag includes a hanging cosmetic satchel, travel slippers for sanitary TSA checks and a ticket/document holder.
Are you tired of opening your over-stuffed carry-on to find a mess of wrinkled and disorganized clothes? Try the Stow-N-Go Portable Luggage System which features a three-tiered hanging organizer that makes packing and unpacking quick and easy, saving up to 30 percent of suitcase space while keeping clothing secure and wrinkle-free. To use it, just hang it in your home closet, pack the shelves with clothes, shoes and more. Place it inside your suitcase, then secure and tighten the straps. When you get to your destination, release the straps and hang it up. There’s even a zippered bottom pouch for dirty clothes.
