Hard-core polycarbonate cases may not flex as well as soft-sided bags, but they’re incredibly helpful at protecting your stuff. A new class of double-wheeled spinning roller suitcases make it easier to zip through the airport in style, while not having to worry too much about that duty-free bottle of wine you crammed in right before boarding. Whichever one you choose, it’s not likely someone will mistake it for their drab bag.

Lojel Groove 2

What we liked: This suitcase rolled smoothly off the airplane, through the airport, onto the sidewalk, and through city streets — one of the smoothest rollers I’ve ever used. The interior pockets help organize all the little things, so you don’t have to dig around.

Not so much: The cool, tropical colors bring to mind Miami Art-Deco style, so those who prefer basic black need to look elsewhere.

Mia Toro “Beautiful Minds” Hardside Spinner Carry-On

What we liked: Nobody will ever grab your suitcase by mistake again with this brightly colored bag, but people will stop you (multiple times per trip) to tell you how beautiful it is.

Not so much: A second handle would be handy in hoisting the full suitcase into a car’s trunk or an overhead bin.

Raden A22 Carry

What we liked: This high-tech, super-sleek suitcase has a handle that doubles as a scale to determine the bag’s weight, an integrated battery that allows up to 4x full phone charges, and is trackable through an app you can download to your phone.

Not so much: If you absolutely must max out the TSA carry-on size regulations (9 by 14 by 22 inches), this case falls the tiniest bit under size.
