Are you a carry-on traveler? One of those diehards who wouldn’t be caught dead checking a bag; who prides themselves on fitting three weeks worth of clothes and a mountaineering kit into a compact roller? Well then cover your eyes because I’m about to drop some blasphemy. I like the checked bag. I don’t mind getting separated from my stuff and having a few extra minutes to stop and smell the baggage claim.
A bigger bag means not only more room for your stuff, but more room for the stuff you plan to bring back. It leaves you free to move about the airport with just a backpack. Ignore that announcement regarding limited overhead bin space, you don’t give a crap. If you’ve ever thought about going checked, AC recommends the Tumi Tech. It’s super-light, durable, stylish, and easy to spot at the aforementioned baggage claim. Scoop one up over at Gilt the next time they have a sale.blog comments powered by Disqus
