Last month I wrote about how to travel with just a carry-on. I was impressed by how many of you shared your tips in the comments section (thank you!), and by some of the questions you asked on social media. One of them was about what kind of carry-on works best when you need a more structured bag. Today I’m going to answer that question with my Tumi Voyageur Super Leger International Carry-on review.

Traveling with Just a Carry-on

Before I start, it’s worth saying that I’ve been a huge fan of Tumi luggage since I started traveling. I bought one of their carry-on suitcases back in 2006, and 10 years later it’s still going strong. I travel with it when I want a bit of extra space or when I’m speaking at a conference and need my clothes to stay wrinkle-free in transit.

With that said, today I’m going to do a Tumi Voyageur Super Leger International Carry-on review. I first spotted this bag at Heathrow over the summer, and even though I love my old one I couldn’t help thinking it might be time to replace it.

I took the suitcase for a spin around the Tumi shop, noting how smooth the four spinning wheels were and how lightweight the bag was compared to others I’ve looked at. I also liked that the fabric and zippers were durable, something that’s important in luggage that gets used as frequently as mine. And since I travel with lots of gadgets and gear, I loved that it has pockets galore.

And that’s to say nothing of the fact that it’s stylish. One of my long-standing frustrations with Tumi has been that most of their luggage is very masculine. But with the Voyageur Collection they’ve finally made a bag that’s both functional and feminine. And not just one, either. There’s a whole line, from totes to carry-alls to backpacks, many of which slide over the handle of the Tumi Voyageur Super Leger International Carry-on for easy two-in-one transportation.

Tumi bags aren’t cheap, but they’re worth the investment given how long they last. I would rather pay once for something high-quality than repeatedly for things that fall apart after a few years. And their bags are as high-quality as luggage comes.

So if you’re in the market for a new suitcase that checks all the boxes, this is the one to get. And I’m not just saying that. I bought it last week and have already traveled to Asia with it. It’s proven to be every bit as good as I predicted, and I can’t recommend it enough.

If you’re in the UK, you can get it here. If you’re in the US, it’s here.

And if you’re interested in a slightly bigger, hard-case alternative (or if you’re a man and don’t want to buy women’s luggage), the Tumi Tegra-Lite Max Continental Carry-on is another great option. If you’re in the UK, you can get it here. If you’re in the US, it’s here.

How about you? Do you have a favorite carry-on?

    I like the Tumi bag but yes, it’s the cost aspect which has made me not go for one. I have a samsonite carry on which works well but will surely be investing in a small tumi messenger bag for my medications while traveling. It’s great and thanks for sharing the post
