As travel editors, we pride ourselves on being the lightest of packers. Whether we're jetting away for a three-day beach vacation or a three-week European tour, we strive to keep everything in one modest carry-on. But despite our best efforts, sometimes there's no avoiding a checked bag. With that in mind, we've rounded up and road-tested some of the best bags on the market today. The next time your travels take you to far-flung places for extended periods of time, or you just want to pack your entire wardrobe, here are 10 bags to consider.

Disappointed. Selection lacks scope and consideration. Not to mention just a little bit more style would be nice. For example, what about those of us who travel to places where wheels do NOT work. I suggest the Dunhill 48hrs Bladon. Fabulous leather carry all. And for wheelies, why not the Rimowa Classic Cabin Trolley. Have had mine for years - bullet proof, functional and stylish. As for Tumi, I have had my fill! I used Tumi extensively when made in the US, with true unlimited warranty and the ability to repair. Those days are now gone, hence now using other products. Tumi is trading on a faded past.
