Soft-sided luggage is available in a wide variety of bags, sets, designs, and prices. The most affordable soft-sided luggage is usually fine for those who travel infrequently, but typically won’t hold up long for those who travel on a regular basis. Most soft-sided luggage is more lightweight than hard-sided bags, and there are even suitcases that are designed to be extra lightweight. Many offer expandable sides for more packing space, even with bags that are designed to meet most carryon luggage requirements. Whether you’re looking for a simple carryon suitcase, a checked luggage bag, or an entire set for group travel, you’ll likely find soft-sided luggage that meets your needs.
