Upgrade the family luggage with timeless and chic pieces the kids will actually want to carry from Calpak Travel. Peruse Calpak’s stylish variety of luggage, carry-ons and accessories for your next trip, or gift your millennial traveler with a trendy backpack, luggage, duffel or tote bag.

The backpacks are really a game changer for travelers seeking style, function and sophistication. Check out the variety of neutral and muted colors for every occasion, or the laptop backpack for those entering the working world. Fitting a laptop up to 15 inches, the Kaya Collection boasts a refined polished look for the travelers and go-getters in your life. Backpacks range by size, $75–89, but all faux leather and roomy.

Looking for a pop of color for the happy-go-lucky traveler, the Oh Joy! + Calpak collection is filled with spring patterns and fun colors. Shop luggage in floral, confetti and sunset colors for the traveler on the wild side.

Between the overnights, weekend trips and extracurricular activities, it may be time to upgrade your family duffle bag. The Calpak duffle provides a roomy interior with an added bottom pocket for additional storage, but without adding bulk. Duffle bags can double as a carry-on, but the under-seat option is specifically designed for in-flight travel. For $98, the soft exterior of the under-seat carry-on allows users to manipulate the bag just enough to fit into tight spaces.

Carry-on luggage

Shop luggage collections for the whole family and save and grab a few power luggage tags for $32, and stay connected. The luggage tags come in a variety of colors and phrases, including one perfect for grabby strangers, “Not Yours.” Charge up your devices on the go with the compact tag and secure it back on your luggage before checking.

The classic designs and chic styles of Calpak dip into a modern vintage territory with fun accessory pieces like the hatboxes. These throwback items boast a modern flare with marble designs, mock-alligator skin and colorful patterns. Carry the smaller hatboxes like a purse or luggage by the handle or arm strap. Pack hats or other precious cargo you want protected by the tough exterior shell, ranging $115–125.

While you’re at it, don’t forget to add in a few pieces for you — after all, shipping is free after $75, so it would be irresponsible not to treat yourself.
