Best Smart Luggage in 2022

Thank goodness we live in this time. Why carry bags and weigh them with old fashioned scales when they can follow you around with their internal scales — all convenience, no B.S. Plus, there are a bunch of bags that come with built-in batteries and USB ports, so you can charge all of your devices on the go.

If you're an avid traveler or are constantly on the go for work, these are the best smart suitcases and carry-on bags to help you get where you need to go — the smart way.

Néit's "The Check-In" bag is a $400 hardshell carry-on with a TSA-approved locking system, a carabiner handle (to go hands-free!), and you can add a Smart Unit ($49) at purchase, which lets you track your case via Néit's app.

Not using the case? It folds down to only 3 inches thick when it's empty. The wheels also fold away for easy storage and the carbiner handle also lets you hang the case up.

Mick is a staff writer who's as frugal as they come, so he always does extensive research (much to the exhaustion of his wife) before making a purchase. If it's not worth the price, Mick ain't buying.

  • As a guy who has flown over 2M miles over 35 years (typically 100,000-250,000/year these days), ranging from domestic trips around the US to 'round the world trips to India and Asia, you are missing my favorite smart bag, the G-RO carryon. In addition to being the right size for an international carry-on, designed by an international traveler and an artistic designer, it has wheels that do not need an axel, so they take up no room inside the bag! In addition, the customer service is OUTSTANDING, with them helping me replace the handle when I broke it by dropping the bag with a too-heavy computer bag perched on top against the wall of my hotel room. On the other hand, Planet Traveler has been HORRIBLE to try to have help me! I also own an SC1, and it stays home. Getting answers from them for my order was like pulling teeth, they still owe me my matching larger bag, and every time I contacted them they treated me like a bothersome piece of trash! And I was one of their early backers! Anyway, check out the G-RO. Highly recommended. And they look cool and get more comments from both travelers and airline employees than any bag I've ever seen!
