2} Tumi  The company’s Tegra-Lite cases ($595 to $895)—its lightest, strongest travel bags yet—are made from Tegris, a material used in protective gear worn by NFL athletes. Launched in 2012, the line added two new colors this year—Viridian and Iridium (shown). 800.299.8864, www.tumi.com

3} TecknoMonster  Made in Italy, Kasor (about $5,970 to $9,140) features a laminated carbon-fiber shell, a hand-stitched leather handle, low-noise castor wheels, and a rubber seal to protect the external zipper. Optional bulletproof panels make the bag, well, bulletproof. Available at Harrods through Case London, +44.208.736.5900, www.caseluggage.com; www.tecknomonster.com

4} Exemplaire  Known for its cashmere knitwear, the French brand also excels at leather goods, such as this grained calfskin leather case. The XM06 Travel Kit ($3,490) includes a cashmere blanket, an eye mask, and ankle socks. Available at Barneys, 888.222.7639, www.barneys.com

5} Moncrief  Each travel trolley (about $8,700) requires 120 hours of labor. The alligator-embossed main bag measures 15.3 inches wide by 22 inches high by 9 inches deep and features a removable case. Available at Harrods through Case London, +44.208.736.5900, www.caseluggage.com

6} Louis Vuitton  The French fashion house’s first four-wheeled trolley case, the Zéphyr 4-Wheels (from $3,550), debuted in 2013 in the brand’s signature monogram. This January, the company is
introducing it in Damier Graphite (shown). 866.884.8866, www.louisvuitton.com
