Choosing a piece of luggage or a travel bag can be a highly personal thing. The style you choose (duffel, spinner, backpack, etc.), the material it’s made out of and the color all come down to an individual’s preferences. Despite these preferences, everyone is looking for some thing durable, that can fit all of your travel essentials and make your journey easier.

Below, we’ve compiled 15 different pieces of luggage sold on Amazon. They have different features, but are all highly-rated and under $100.

How we picked top-rated luggage and travel bags

What you’ll need in your luggage will depend on the type of trip you’ll be taking and what you will be packing. That said, there are a few universal factors we looked for when selecting luggage and travel bags from Amazon.

  • High ratings: We only considered bags that had a 4-star average from at least 1,000 reviews on Amazon. We paid special attention to those with even higher star averages and thousands of reviews.
  • Size: Most of the bags on our list can be used as carry-ons, but we included a few larger options as well.
  • Style: Some people prefer a duffel bag, while others may like a bag with wheels. To address all preferences, we included a variety of shapes and styles.
