My daughter will be leaving for Europe in a few weeks and how to pack a suitcase is quickly becoming as important a discussion as what to pack for her travel abroad. She’ll be gone at least a month and wants to travel light, keeping her bags to a single carry-on and her backpack.
She needed a lightweight carry-on suitcase that could be wheeled through streets that are likely to have uneven pavement or be made of cobblestone. After extensive research, she chose High Sierra Elevate 22″ Carry-On Wheeled Upright (Lava/DarkTungsten).
Once that decision was made, our discussion resumed about what to take. We were pleasantly surprised when our research on luggage lead us to this video on how to pack a suitcase — featuring the High Sierra bag! The video not only gave packing tips, but also provided insight on what to pack to get you through 60 days of travel.
