Serious travelers love Heys, the Canadian company known for its hard-shell 4WD Xcase — “the world’s lightest carry-on luggage.” Lightweight, but incredibly tough: so tough, in fact, that a news station crew once experimentally ran over a Heys suitcase with an SUV and it came out remarkably unscathed. Founded in 1986, Heys designs its streamlined suitcases and luggage sets to stand out in baggage claim — covering them in bright colors and patterns like zebra and plaid. Best-sellers like the hard-case, Sidewinder three-piece spinner set and Disney-themed backpacks and luggage sets for kids make travel both convenient and kid-friendly, a winning combination for any family on the go.
Expertly blending style and substance for 24 years, Heys Luggage takes travel as seriously as you do — their suitcases, carry-ons and toiletry cases come with lifetime warranties and are built to last, featuring durable polycarbonate shells. As chic as they are sturdy, you’ll speed through baggage claim with easy-to-spot options like these bright red or blue suitcases, featuring four 360-degree wheels for easy maneuvering. Or skip the check-in line with the metallic blue biometric carry-on, the ultimate in convenience and security that comes complete with a built-in fingerprint lock closure and noise-reduction technology.
Hartmann, founded in Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1877, is one of the old guard of fine, American-based luggage companies. And throughout its 135-year history, the label has maintained that same blend of manufacturing expertise and aesthetic prowess that made its trunks and Pullmans the choice of discerning travelers aboard the steamliners and railways of yesteryear. But modernists need not worry. Hartmann is consistently evolving with the times — from making smaller suitcases designed for the then-new phenomenon of jet travel, to producing some of the finest rolling luggage and business bags available today.
