What size luggage for a 2 week trip?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I have been using 26" Travelpro rolling suitcases since we bought them 7 or 8 years ago. They weight around 11 lbs, pretty good for something that old. And they've really held up. I'd use them again, but he thinks we ought to go smaller.

Now we've never user the expanding capability of the ones we have, and they are a little bigger than we need (but I then have room to buy things to bring home!). I just looked at a 24" Travelpro, that WHEN EXPANDED would hold the same as the 26" not expanded.

Is 24" enough (for me? Men don't take as much, less clothes, less toiletries). I don't take much in the way of clothing (it took me years to realize that we're in various places, no one but my husband is going to notice I've worn this outfit 3 times already and actually even HE wouldn't notice!). But toiletries, camera and associated stuff, mini hairdryer, medications (enough that they take up real space) etc. are the worry.

Oh, and shoes. I've got to figure out how to manage on less shoes. 1 sandals, 1 sneakers, 1 flats....

What do you use for a 2 week trip during warm weather? (Winter travel is different, clothes are bigger and heavier, I think I'd have to have the larger suitcase).

Thanks,
Alice
