High-Quality Travel Gear and Accessories for Your next Adventure

December 17, 2017

From Thailand’s tropical islands to the rugged European Alps, here is a round-up of our favourite high-quality travel gear and accessories. You can learn about these items and other travel and lifestyle products on the Luxe Travel Family Amazon page.


Carry-On Luggage

If you travel with carry-on luggage, here are a few excellent options. Since carry-on size and weight restrictions vary throughout the industry, it is important to select a bag that meets your airline’s requirements.

Rimowa Salsa Cabin Multiwheel

The 32 l Rimowa Salsa Cabin Multiwheel is 21.7 x 15.7 x 7.9 and weighs 7 lbs 9 oz. The Rimowa Salsa is my favourite carry-on and works well for a trip to Europe or travel within North America.

Eagle Creek Tarmac International Carry-On

If I require a slightly smaller and lighter carry-on, the 31 l Eagle Creek Tarmac International Carry-On is an excellent choice. This bag is 20 x 14 x 8 in (expandable to 20 x 14 x 10 in) and weighs 6 lbs 10 oz.

Osprey Ozone

Designed for the fast and light traveler, the 36 l Osprey Ozone is 19 x 14 x 9 and weighs a scant 4.14 lbs. This bag is fabulous!


Larger Luggage

Tumi suitcases, Patagonia duffle bags, and Rimowa products are excellent choices if you plan to travel with larger bags.

Travel Technology

Battery Packs

Bring fully charged phones, iPads, e-readers, and computers onboard the airplane, train, boat, or in the vehicle. And pack charged battery packs (we like Piston Power Pro products), cords, and plugs.


Loaded Kindle e-readers are excellent travel accessories.

Skyroam WiFi Hotspot

We used a Skyroam WiFi hotspot in Europe and loved it – here is why. We plan to use the upgraded Skyroam Solis (4G LTE hotspot and power bank with a protective travel case in Europe.

Good to Know – High-Quality Travel Gear and Accessories

These are just a few of the items that help make our long-haul family travel more enjoyable – I plan to update the list to include more technology, beauty essentials, and products for younger travelers. You can find our tested and approved travel and lifestyle products here.

    Great ideas. I need to learn how to travel light. I still check in a large bag!❤️

    I swear by Tumi and Rimowa. Pricey but I have never regretted those purchases and still have all my cases and bags by both brands. The two I have never been sponsored by or affiliated with but am happy to be a customer of!

      I feel the same about Tumi and Rimowa. I can travel for three-weeks with only my Rimowa Salsa carry-on — it holds so much and is regulation cabin-size on most airlines. I’d love one of the iconic Rimowa aluminum cabin-sized bags, but I’m worried it won’t hold as much as the Salsa.
