5 Great Suitcases You Can Find on Amazon For Under $100


A good suitcase is always a worthwhile investment, but yeesh, they can get expensive.

If you don’t want to drop hundreds of dollars on one or you’re not in a position to spend that kind of money, you don’t have to.

While a great suitcase masters the perfect combination of size, weight, and durability, it also needs to come at a perfect price. So, here are the top 5 suitcases I love, all available on Amazon for under $100!

1. Samsonite Winfield 2

It’s likely that you’ve already heard of Samsonite. They’ve been around for over 100 years and make every kind of travel bag you could imagine. If you’re looking for well-tested dependability, this one’s for you. The Winfield 2 is a super durable, expandable hard shell suitcase that can take a hit. It features 360 degree spinning wheels and the 24” model weighs in at 9.3 lbs! Plus, the built-in TSA Compatible Combination Lock is a really nice touch.

3. U.S. Traveler Rio (Carry On Luggage Set)

We’d be remiss if we didn’t mention a good carry on option. Many people these days prefer to travel without any checked luggage — and for good reason too. So it’s important to have a carry on that you love. This set from U.S. Traveler is made from super tough fabric, which combines the durability you expect with the extra squish that’s sometimes needed to get the ol’ girl into the overhead. Plus, at a mere 7.68 lbs, this thing is super light. So if you’re a connoisseur of carry-on only travel, this might just be the one for you. Bonus: it comes with a cute little matching tote that you can pop under your seat!

4. Kenneth Cole Reaction Renegade

This stylish little hard shell number from Kenneth Cole is a great pick if organization is your jam. The interior of this suitcase has several extra zippered pockets, as well as elastic shoe pockets, and a zippered restraint panel on one side. A place for every thing and everything in its place. It also expands an additional two inches so you’ll definitely be able to get those souvenirs home with this one. And it comes with a 10-year warranty which, according to reviews, the company makes really easy to claim in the unlikely event that your bag is damaged. 5 stars to Kenneth Cole.

5. Amazon Basics Hardside Spinner

Trust us, what this suitcase may lack in pizzazz, it more than makes up for in performance. It has 20,000+ reviews and a 4.5-star rating to prove it. This suitcase has a scratch-resistant, protective hard shell that can expand up to 15% if you need a little extra room and the interior actually features a few zippered organization pouches, similar to the Kenneth Cole model. She weighs in at 9.37 lbs, making it about average for a suitcase this size, and features those all-important 360 spinner wheels that allow you to move through the airport with ease. So if you’re in the market for a no-nonsense bag that gets the job done — Cinderella, meet your slipper.
