Smart Luggage for Smart Business Travel
NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- Who knows where the hideous black luggage thing got its start. Sure, thick, heavily woven synthetic fabrics are indestructible. And keeping everything the color of coal hides the bumps and bruises of business travel. But there are plenty of great business luggage options out there.
Here is what I plan to be lugging this travel season:
1) Chrome Backbone Messenger Pack ($160)
Bike gear maker Chrome got its start in Boulder, Colo., 16 years ago making gear for messengers, but its gear definitely has a wider place in American business travel. I especially like the Backbone Messenger Pack, basically a full-sized satchel that works as a backpack, with almost no dork factor. Wrap in great details such as pencil holders, bomb-proof buckles and great use of silver as a design touch -- yes, you can clean it -- and this is the business travel bag of the moment.
