Luggage_IMG_5260.jpgAh, winter. Signaled not only by festive occassions this time of year, but also by the cold weather we've been receiving across this great country of ours. For me - and hopefully many of you - this signals a time of travel. Whether it's retreating from the white stuff (or rain on the "wet" coast) to see family during the holidays, or heading some place tropical to beat the winter blahs, travel with the right luggage and make the commute easy. Doing so will save you time - maybe even your back - as well as make you look and stay organized.

 

Here are few budget-friendly options from Futureshop.ca to consider before you pack your bags and roll with family and friends:

 

Samboro:

Samboro is the quality luggage maker, creating pieces for brands you trust, such as Delsey, Westjet, Bon Voyage, in addition to their own name. I got my hands on a beautiful set by Samboro, and here's my recommends for any traveler's needs:

 

Carry-on or the perfect pairing: When I travel for work or personal time, I always try  to pack carry-on. Sure, the toiletries are a juggle to stay within government regulations on liquids and lotions, but the convenience of not checking bags saves me valuable time. 

 

The Samboro Executive Lite 15" Tote Bag is super light and allows you to pack what you need when traveling on the go. It's perfect for cramming the essentials for a short trip and keeping it with you at all times.10192831SamCarryon.jpg

 

A fantastic matching piece to carry-on an airplane is Samboro's Executive Lite 20" Wheeled Luggage. It just squeezes-in to take on-board with you and offers enough room for your clothing, shoes, gadgets, etc. A nice addition for only $89.99.

 

Go big. If traveling carry-on isn't your style, there are medium and large sizes that are airline, bus and auto friendly. Samboro's Executive Lite 29" Wheeled Luggage, for example, offers generous space, is lightweight and features functional compartments like shoe and side pockets. There are mechanisms you'd expect out of a quality luggage maker, such as a sturdy trolley handle and smooth running spinning wheels to balance the load. You can even store you garments on hangers, fighting off some of the wrinkling that happens when traveling. It's well priced at $129.99.

 

 

American Tourister

Founded 80 years ago, American Tourister is another favoured brand in the luggage business. 

 

Future Shop carries online a wide selection of their items, however, one style that stands out is their luggage sets with their new hybrid models. Called "Astronolite," this line is their lightest model ever made, available in three fun colours (blue, red and grey) and comes in three practical sizes: 19" (carry-on), 25" (mid-size) and 29" (large). Each colour comes with the same coloured, highly-noticeable yellow wheels, which undoubtedly will help you pick out your luggage when they come pouring out of the carousel in baggage claim, or off the bus.

 

Each luggage piece is constructed of 500 Denier x 300 Denier Polyester and super light in structure. Inside, there are brightly coloured mesh pockets and cross strips and keep belongings organized. The trio retails at Futureshop.ca for $449.99.
