It's the baggage you actually should be bringing with you.

I'm going to be quite honest with you: my upper body strength needs work. Like a lot of work. As in, I-can't-even-do-a-pushup work. So when it comes to traveling, I can promise you it's a struggle. Me lugging around an overflowing duffel is like Atlas holding up the world. Well, not really, but you get the point. Thus, I became an expert in my savior—rolling luggage.

Rolling luggage is your traveling best friend. When you first use a bag with 360 degree spinner wheels, it's love at first roll. It's not just because these types of bags make for easier traveling; they also can help to alleviate any strain that comes from a duffel. Felipe Sandoval, Director of Sales and Marketing at Hotel Le Toiny, is constantly jetting around the world, and he says, "When you travel, back comfort is essential. A rolling bag allows you to be able to roam free without any hassle." Some of our favorite brands like TUMI and Rimowa make some sleek styles that you will be rolling around for years to come. You can choose between carry-ons, matching sets, checked bags—there's a piece of luggage out there for you, and we are here to help you find it. Don't end up at your gate all sweaty and out of breath from schlepping around a heavy bag slung over your shoulder. There's a simple solution.

And now that we've presented you with the solution, it's time to act on it. Below, find the 13 best rolling luggage to make your next adventure so much easier—and pain-free.
