The Review

Priced similarly to lines like Tumi, but it does come with global tracking and a lifetime guarantee.


Military-grade EVA shell, waterproof welded zippers and a durable polycell foam hanger.


Longer than you're used to, but it's lean (at just over 2 lb.) and the weight is perfectly balanced.

Road Test



There's definitely something to be said for handsome, old school luggage. But for those that travel on the regular, that kind of luggage is a drag—it's heavy, it's inefficient or it needs to be checked. Business travel today calls for a certain pragmatic ingenuity. Enter LAT56, a new kind of luggage for the modern wayfarer. A nearly indestructible carry-on that condenses suits and supplies into a compact, organized and lightweight pack that's easy to carry and stash. I easily packed three days' worth of clothes, some toiletries and an iPad into the Red-Eye model and stuffed it under a rather cramped economy class seat for last-minute cross-country flight. The complete lack of wrinkles upon arrival was enough for me to consider buying the thing. I just wish they made bags for longer trips.

The Expertly Packed Carry-On


What should I pack for my first business trip?

- Matt, OH


With nearly every airline imposing a baggage fee nowadays, if you can get away with flying with just a carry-on, do it.
