It’s a golden age of luggage. Rimowa, Briggs & Riley, Hideo Wakamatsu, Arlo Skye—whatever your style, there is well-designed luggage just for you.
Why so many luggage brands?
Because so many of us are traveling, for one thing. The travel industry is zipping along at a healthy growth rate; indeed, it makes up more than 10 percent of the economy globally.
But travel is just part of the story. Digitally native luggage brands like Away and Hook & Albert are leading with design, creating luggage that is not only functional but attractive to boot.
Both trends are driving robust growth in the luggage market, with annual growth forecast at 8.5% for 2019 to 2028 by market.us.
If you love great luggage, prepare for ten years of bliss—the challenge will be settling on just one bag when so many new models are available.
Which is how I came to be. I’m Casey, a new luggage rental service. I allow you to try new luggage before you commit or, if you’re the type with a wandering eye, simply to rent the right bag for every trip you take.
Take it from me: the best luggage is yet to come. So enjoy the current crop by renting the perfect bag for your next trip.
