6 Travel Pieces For Thanksgiving

Right now, at this very moment, an estimated 600,000 people are flying on a commercial jet. To put that in perspective, that’s equivalent to all residents of Portland abandoning their city for the friendly skies.

And with the Thanksgiving holiday next week, an estimated 25 million Americans are expected to travel by plane over the long weekend. With long lines, packed flights and congested seating, you have a very important decision to make: carry-on or checked baggage?

The Rimowa Cabin Multiwheel, which is part of their Salsa line of luggage, is an exceptional bag for the frequent flier. Built with sturdiness in mind, this bag features a polycarbonate shell for added protection, as well as a recessed TSA security lock for added privacy. Luxury add-ons include ergonomic gel handles, a retractable Add-A-Bag holder and Rimowa’s patented rotating wheel technology. Again, if you find yourself at the airport more often than just the holidays, this is a worthy investment.

Samsonite is a global leader in luggage for a reason, and this Omni Spinner further illustrates why. This polycarbonate, micro-diamond texture is extremely scratch resistant and can hold up to the toughest conditions. Click the image above to learn more about all its capabilities.

For the light-packing traveler, this carry-on from Lipault Paris is absolutely everything. Stylish, functional, roomy and extremely lightweight, this bag is the ultimate travel companion. Bonus: measuring in at 19 inches, you have the option of carrying on if you're a little strapped for cash.

In addition to checked luggage, don’t forget to put some thought into your one free personal item. An oversize tote is a nice alternative to a backpack and is small enough to slide under the seat. Additionally, leave your bulky purse at home and opt for a travel bag or anti-theft crossbody for worry-free travel.

New Brand Spotlight: Crumpler

new brand spotlight, crumpler, crumpler bags, travel bags, crumpler luggage, travel, crumpler backpack, crumpler messenger bags, crumpler laptop bags, travelling bags,

It all started back in 1992 when Stuart ‘Stu’ Crumpler sat in his grandma’s garage in Ballarat, Australia trying to sew through a truck tarp so he could make a bag that was strong enough to haul a case of beer home on his bike. With the help of a parachute maker in 1993, Stud’s creative desire to make a great bag evolved from its humble beginnings to something much greater.

With a $20 flea market sewing machine and a pattern drawn on a piece of wood in pen affectionately called “Mr. Pattern,” Crumpler bags was born. Soon after, bike couriers came across his bags and began using them for their deliveries as well as offering feedback on what did and didn’t work for them. With the feedback from the couriers and Crumpler’s growing popularity, soon the bags were made from stronger and water-resistant materials with occasional mismatched colors, making it hard to ignore. It was this update that helped Crumpler grow in popularity and soon have a following.

These days the Crumpler line has significantly expanded beyond cycling (with a case of beer) to include professional camera bags, laptop computer bags, netbook and iPad® sleeves, backpacks, messengers, and even luggage. Despite the evolution in style and use that Crumpler bags have undergone, the simple principles behind ‘Mr. Pattern’ have remained the same—simplicity, a willingness to experiment, a big dose of humor, and a determination to make the best bag they can scissor from a single piece of fabric.

Urban, colorful, durable, and all you. Express who you are with Crumpler.
