If you’re gonna jetset around the world multiple times a year every year, you’re going to need some serious gear. This hobby practically requires a bag fetish.

There’s no right or wrong bag, but certain types of bags definitely prove useful, over and over. And that’s because there’s all different sorts of travel functions they service. The most important thing to remember about buying the right gear is whether they suit your travel patterns and not, for instance, whether the suitcase is an American Tourister or a Tumi. (That comes later.)
I generally bring at least two or three different types of bags–the more specialized gear can often crossover into multiple categories–depending on the purpose of the trip. For instance, the Lo & Sons O.M.G can double as a personal item and a weekender. Making sure you’ve got several different types of bags on hand will pretty much ensure you’ll be covered in any situation.
