InnovationLuggage. com presents a no-nonsense site that quickly displays to you the popular brands of luggage. Right on the homepage, you’ll find images of brands such as: Victorinox, Swiss Army luggage, The North Face, Timbuk2, Jansport, Ogio, Manhattan Portage, Delsey, Hartmann, Kipling, Brigs and Riley, Tony Perotti, Samsonite, Travelpro, and other popular brands.

Aside from presenting a wide array of luggage, backpacks, duffels, and travel accessories, Innovation Luggage also gives you useful travel and life tips:

  • 7 Romantic Getaways
  • Travel with Family made Easy
  • The Best Destinations in the World
  • Avoid Theft while Traveling
  • Airport Security Requirements
  • …and many more!

In addition to providing a lot of educational material, some of the posted articles contain breathtaking photographs of the different places you can travel to. Afterall, what’s the use of getting high quality luggage if you don’t intend to see the rest of the world, right?

Their product catalog shows large enough images of the various luggage, although it would be great to see the luggage from other angles. Some of the backpacks, though, provide both front and back photos.

The listed customer reviews are quite few, although it is a good start.

The Checkout process had some snags, though. The initial registration requires you to immediately provide your billing and shipping address, and the only available country listed in the address portion is the United States. When I did push through with the Registration, however, there was a server error.

That can be quite a let down, especially after you spend some time choosing your product only to find out in the end that you can’t even order it.

However, as is the case in these types of errors, these server hiccups can be resolved by their technical team.

All in all, the
Innovation Luggage site is perfect for the leisure or business traveler who already knows what he or she wants. No, there don’t appear to be any list of topsellers (probably because they assume you already have a particular brand in mind), although such a list can help them gain additional sales.
