So. Many. Pockets.
One of the biggest challenges I face when I’m traveling is keeping all my things in order. It starts out fine: shoes at the bottom of the suitcase, then neatly folded clothes, accessories, and toiletries on top.
Unfortunately, after only a couple of days, this carefully executed system turns into a complete mess that makes it almost impossible to find anything without pulling every single thing out of the suitcase. Sound familiar?
Many luggage pieces are basically one big compartment with a couple of mesh pockets. That makes staying organized an insurmountable and time-consuming task.
That’s why we took the matter into our hands to find the most practical, multi-pocketed backpacks, duffel bags, and wallets to store all the clothes, shoes, and documents you’ll need — whether you’re heading on an international trip, road trip, or just to the beach for the weekend.
And business travelers, we haven’t forgotten about you. We found several elegant options that look professional and have designated (and easily accessible) compartments for files, electronics, and business cards.
Below, check out our picks for functional bags that take your travel organization to a whole new level.
