Compared with luggage you bring with you in the cabin, checked luggage often endures harsher handling and conditions as it is moved from baggage carts to the plane and back again. The best checked luggage can withstand the abuse of both ground and air travel, comes in ergonomic designs, and is available at a reasonable price point. So, what does checked luggage mean? Essentially, it's baggage that you check in before takeoff. It's stored in the aircraft's cargo hold for the duration of the flight. Luggage and bags from Bed Bath & Beyond are manufactured with lightweight, high-impact resistance materials like polycarbonate. This gives you the strength and durability you need to protect your prized possessions while allowing you to maneuver the luggage with ease.
Shopping for the right luggage can be a daunting process since there are so many types on the market. When choosing checked bags or luggage for your trips, one key factor to consider is size. The size range for luggage varies based on its specific purpose. Most airlines allow domestic carry-ons as big as 22 x 14 x 9 inches, with a maximum of 45 linear inches total. A common size for checked luggage is 27 x 21 x 14 inches, and the linear maximum is 62 inches. Since airlines charge a fee based on the size of your luggage, it's best to carry the right check-in luggage size to avoid hefty fees. Fortunately, Bed Bath & Beyond carries a large selection of luggage and bags from trusted brands, such as Samsonite® and Kenneth Cole®, so you have the flexibility to choose the travel gear you need.
At Bed Bath & Beyond, we know that trip lengths vary, with shorter trips requiring smaller amounts of gear. In such cases, you may want to just bring along a backpack rather than a bulky suitcase. In addition to carry-ons and checked luggage, we carry an extensive range of backpacks for air travel. Typical backpack features you'll find on our list include adjustable shoulder straps, zip tops, easy-access compartments and pockets for your valuables, and water-resistant coating for those rainy days. Contemporary backpack designs also come with padded laptop compartments to keep your computer safe and secure while you're on the move.
We also understands that consumer budgets for luggage and bags can vary widely. Not everyone can or wants to pay for the higher-end options in the market, so we also stock affordable checked luggage sets that are well-suited for families or groups that need to gear up for an upcoming trip. Luggage sets from Bed Bath & Beyond come with two or three different luggage sizes, all of which are made with 100% polycarbonate shell or material of the same strength and quality. For added security, check out luggage sets that have a built-in TSA lock for a damage-free TSA search plus added security.
Whether you're buying one carry-on for a short solo trip or a luggage set for the entire family to make an international move, Bed Bath & Beyond can help you gear up and pack smart.
