100 Breakout Luggage Pieces

From Comfortable Camping Couches to Badass Travel Bags

— January 4, 2013 — Autos
These breakout luggage pieces update the way tourists go about their travels. Companies such as Samsonite and Sky Way Luggage have recognized the growing need for couture design, durability and compact styles that still leave room for a significant amount of gear.

Comfortable camping couches and badass travel bags are now available for those who are in search of an alternative experience. Often these concepts are practical, incorporating warm blankets or an excess amount of space into small compartments. Ornate art and fabrics have also run central to these current products, adding touches of luxury to a niche that has historically been associated with upscale bourgeoisie culture. This has at the same time been paired with more practical features.
