Fall is here which means fall getaways, business trips or even a longer trip to a slightly less crowded European destination. However, unlike summer, fall clothes take up a bit more room in your suitcase. You need jackets and cozy sweaters in many destinations! But there are a number of great pieces of luxury carry-on bags and checked luggage from classic brands to a few lesser known ones that will get you through your travels in style and comfort (as long as the airlines don’t lose your bags which these days can be tough.)

8 best luxury travel bags for business trips or vacation this fall

1. Medium Landon Carryall by Dagne Dover

Dagne Dover has known to become for their stylish yet super packable carryalls. They come in a variety of sizes but almost all of them are the perfect bag to take on the plane with you and not have to worry about checking. And you are in luck right now as the brand has broughtback an updated version of their OG camel color – now in more awesome styles and using eco-friendlier materials. Jessy Dover, Dagne Dover co-founder & CCO, said, “We just re-dropped our original neoprene collection in a limited-edition color from 2018 — CAMEL. Customers have been asking for it to make a comeback for years, so we decided to bring it back for good.

As a brand, we like to keep limited editions really exclusive and only drop them once. That’s what makes our collections and seasonal color drops so special — they never come back once they’re gone. Unless you can score them secondhand, you can’t find them! CAMEL is one of those colors we just couldn’t keep stocked, so we knew we had to make an exception and re-introduce it to our core collection forever.” If you love the camel color be sure to check out the  Large Dakota Backpack, the Ace Fanny Pack or Mara Phone Sling as well.
