For those travelers who know smart luggage — the carry-ons that charge your phone or tablet with external USB ports — the two big names are Away and Raden. Raden luggage is probably the sleeker of the two (it’s Adriana Lima’s preferred carry-on, in fact) and is rarely ever on sale for under $200 — much less $150. Unlike the Away, it has Bluetooth for location tracking, and its handle acts as a scale, so you’ll never pack over the weight limit either. And even if you’ve heard that smart luggage has been “banned” from airplanes, Raden’s A22 still complies with FAA regulations thanks to its removable battery pack. For something that’s not navy, it’s the same reduced price in white and a glossy pale blue, too. If you prefer something larger, there’s a 28-inch version that’s on sale for half off at Nordstrom, too.
