Foul-weather friend Keep your cargo safe with the Hideo Wakamatsu Tarpaulin Carry-On Trolley. Made from water- and shred- resistant materials, it protects the contents of your bag from damage caused by inclement weather and rough handling. Adjustable straps around the body allow it to expand and contract to fit the size of your load, while smooth-running wheels allow for silent gliding. $190 (U.S.); flight001.com

Pack ’n’ go The Herschel Supply Co. Novel Duffel Bag is built for quick getaways. With the look of a classic weekend bag, it can pack in an ample supply of clothes, toiletries and reading material. The most sensible feature, however, is an external zippered compartment that keeps shoes or dirty laundry separate. Clip on the detachable shoulder strap and you can travel hands-free. $80 (U.S.); flight001.com
