Hi Guys!

So I'm on a new traveling kick. I've never really traveled before, so I'm lacking in the necessary equipment...Does anyone buy their luggage online? And if so, where? What type and what brands do you guys recommend. I'm open to suggestions!

Personally i like to try on things like rucksacks just to make sure that they fit me and that im going to be comfortable wearing it for hours on end. Even if u decide not to buy online i woul recommend that you try out some in the shops first and then buy the make and model online as it can often work out cheaper.

I hope u enjoy whatever adventures await you.

I find that it really depends on the kind of traveling you're doing. Are you camping? backpacking? hiking? going on a business trip? just for pleasure? touring around? If you're doing more active traveling, you may want to check out a brand like "High Sierra." If you're looking for a more standard type of luggage, "Samsonite" is my brand of choice.
