Travels can take you anywhere, from urban hotels to outdoor cabins. And the means of getting there may vary greatly; maybe a plane or boat one day, and a train or car the next. But regardless of where you’re going and how you’re getting there, good check-in travel luggage, be it wheeled or duffel or backpack, should offer a few key features. A tough build that endures rough handling and demanding environments. Comfortable and easily maneuverable portability, whether you’re rolling it or hauling it by hand or on your back. Convenient access, useful organization, and suitable space for your needs. And if there’s a few nifty travel-friendly features added to the mix, that’s not a bad thing either.

Our Best Travel Luggage Finalists all do a great job of tackling various travel needs. But which one goes above and beyond to make trips as smooth as possible?

Arc’teryx V80 and V110 Rolling Duffels

Internal frames eat up precious packing space in luggage. But Arc’teryx solve this problem by utilizing external frames in their weatherproof V80 and V110 rolling duffels. The exterior frame allows the duffels to be carried or secured in place from any side, while also preventing the material from wearing internally by rubbing against the frame. The duffels feature wide-opening main compartments for easy packing and access, while the rugged wheels can handle a variety of terrains.
