The wine luggage suitcase comes in two different sizes – a grande and a petite, both with the ability to hold wine and anything else you are travelling with. With many travellers making trips to wine countries around the world, this is the perfect case for preventing possible broken bottles and high shipping costs for wine. Fly With Wine Traveler cases from Aleon The Traveler series of cases from Aleon are made with quality Aircraft Grade Aluminum which is heat treated and anodized for industrial strength. With their hardside and riveted construction, as well as reinforced corners, they are lightweight and durable and come with a ten year warranty.

Hartmann Ratio Classic Deluxe from Mori Luggage and Gifts SkyRoll Spinner from SkyRoll SkyRoll makes the only luggage with a wrap-around garment bag, meaning you’ll never have to fold suits or dresses again. It’s like having two pieces of luggage in one. Rolling up large clothes means fewer creases & wrinkles in a more compact size, making it perfect for business trips, weddings, cruises and so on. The SkyRoll Spinner is designed mostly for women because the garment bag is extra-long and able to hold long dresses without folding, plus it comes with a matching toiletries kit. This luggage item is designed as a carry-on by the standards of most U.S. airlines, but it’s a bit bigger than many of the European airline’s carry-on size limits so would be more suited to the main hold within Europe. The spinner wheels allow for easy rolling without tilting and an internal padded laptop/tablet sleeve is perfect for protecting electronic devices. SkyRoll Spinner Love Me, Love My Dog suitcase from Radley The Love Me, Love My Dog medium hard shell suitcase from Radley will have you gliding through the airport while adding a playful twist to your style.

Designed by Apple designer Marc Newson, himself a frequent traveller, the case has a molded inner core and a shock-proof outer shell built from a newly-formulated polypropylene composite. It claims an internal cavity that is 13% larger than similar bags thanks in part to a telescopic handle that protects the outer corners of the case, rather than taking up valuable interior space.
