Consider any features that’ll make your trip, or your day-to-day, a little more fun. Bag sets have all sorts of useful extras such as a built-in USB charger, cupholders so you have a place for your morning coffee at the gate, TSA compliant locks to get through security a little faster, and other useful features.

Check for overall sizing. One of the biggest problems travelers run into are bags that are just over the size limit for carry-ons, so pick a matched set that fits the standards. Don’t ignore the other two bags, though; measure the luggage that you usually check and make sure that the bigger bags will fit everything you want to bring along.

Don’t ignore the hardware. Handles should telescope smoothly and be at a height that it’s easy for you to roll the bag behind you. The hardware on the top and sides should be easy to grip for when you’re putting a bag on a rack, and ideally will have studs on the sides to keep it a little bit off the ground. Expanding features should be easy to open and unfold. And, of course, wheels should be free-spinning and roll smoothly.
