Who wants to check a bag anyway?
Originally Appeared on Condé Nast Traveler
We're big fans of Roam, which was founded by two former Tumi executives in 2018. The brand separates itself from the crowded field of affordable hard-shell luggage thanks to its customizable options. There are nine different colors to choose from, and you can do a simple customization—which just involves choosing a main color and an accented color that appears on the zipper and wheels—or a full one that lets you choose the colors for almost every detail on the suitcase, from the front and back shells to the stitching and carry handle. Aside from aesthetics, the Jaunt is lightweight (it weighs 6.6 pounds) and features a repellent zipper, TSA-approved lock, and an ergonomic handle grip.
