The 10 Best new luggage
1. John Lewis Value Hard Side
The store's first foray into home-brand luggage has bag-handler-proof sides made of sturdy ABS plastic yet it's light to handle.
2. Samsonite X'ion³ Travel
About the prettiest suitcase around, it has a patented "tent" construction that means your bag is never bulkier than it needs to be.
3. Muji Boston Bag
Like all Muji's products this is stark and stylish. While it isn't the roomiest piece of luggage around, it's just right for weekend jaunts.
4. John Lewis Monaco Spinner
Another nifty new case from the ever-reliable store. This one benefits from a four-wheel base and a handy, built-in combination lock.
Help keep your little ones in the holiday mood with this Olympic-styled Trunki which large enough to fit in all your child's toys.
6. M&S Marcel Wanders
Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has turned his eye to luggage design. This bold silver and black wheelie case is a great workhorse.
7. Missoni for Bric
If you fancy being the envy of the departure lounge, you'll want to get your hands on this zip-close, Missoni-designed, mini holdall.
8. Antler Velvet Plum Liquis
Antler's new one has a super-sturdy outer shell that stands up well to all the usual battering from the baggage handlers.
You're not going to fit your entire summer holiday wardrobe into this bag. But if you want a cool, hardy bag, then this is for you.
10. The Carlton Tribe
It's all about lightweight comfiness with this padded material bag from Carlton's new range that comes in at a minuscule 2.2kg.
