It's fully spring at this point and I have got a serious case of vacationitis!! Between spring break and summer vacations (sort of) on the horizon, travel is totally on my mind and I'm sure it's on yours too!! I realized before we spent our spring break in St George and went to Alt Summit in Palm Springs that I was in serious need of some new luggage.
Luggage is one of those things that most of us don't buy often, so when you do you want it to be the very BEST, but also for the best price. Amiright? So I did some super EXTENSIVE research and I'm ready to share my results. Are you ready?
This Hartmann luggage was the clear winner! Hands down. Best of the best among all the sets I researched from all the different department stores and online shops and resources. It's that magical elusive combination of lightweight and durable. Even more magical? You can get this luggage at Macy's. FOR A DEAL!! Most other top performing luggage brands rarely or never go on sale and you guys know that I am all about the deal!! It's kind of my thing.

Both the carry-on and the larger size came with a garment bag which was super nice. Especially if you have items that are hanging up on either end of your trip! I also looooooved the zippered mesh panels to help keep things organized and protected.
Look at that thin, lightweight shell! Finding a suitcase that was super lightweight was my #1 priority! When I take a trip, I want the maximum amount of weight to go to my belongings and not be wasted on a heavy suitcase! The carry-on size weighs just 7 1/2 pounds! Crazy, right?
I really like the bronze/gold color, but also especially chose it because it will be easy to spot at baggage claim! I'm guessing not as many people have luggage this color and let's be honest, when you have the same black luggage as everybody else it's kind of a pain looking for it on the carousel. It's so much easier to have luggage that stands out and is just a little bit different!!
Both suitcases have four, yes FOUR, spinner wheels so you know this baby is going to roll really nicely through all the airports and hotel lobbies!
Another high priority item for me was that beautiful flat surface on top of the suitcase. That way I have a stable place to put my purse when I'm rolling my bag through the airport!
Macy's has a great selection of super high-quality luggage, but they also have an amazing selection of super cute luggage! If looks are important to you, there's plenty of Instagram worthy options! I was really, really tempted to buy THIS luggage, because it's just very, very cute!
