Best Luggage Lifetime Warranty Options



Table Of Contents



TFG readers know the importance of investing in a durable suitcase that’ll hold up to the harsh conditions of travel. But even the most resilient of suitcases can be subject to extra rough handling at an airport, an unexpected accident, or a defective component. 

That’s why a suitcase with lifetime warranty is so crucial! A lifetime warranty on your luggage means you’ll only need to purchase one quality suitcase and have it for life. 


These are our readers’ favorite lifetime guarantee luggage brands!



Lifetime Warranty Suitcase Brands




Away The Carry-On




Away is one of the top luggage brands in the TFG community, loved for its sleek and lightweight suitcases that offer tons of packing space. Away’s hardside suitcases are made from sturdy polycarbonate, and readers say they’re amazingly resilient and will always keep your items safe and sound, not to mention their smooth-rolling wheels and firm handles. 

One TFGer says that you see Away suitcases all over airports because they’re made so well, have a great organization, and most importantly, have a lifetime warranty. Their luggage ranges from the reader-fave Carry-On (available in two sizes), checked bags, an expandable suitcase line, and an aluminum suitcase line, as well as amazing weekender bags, backpacks, and even crossbody purses and packing accessories




I’ve really come to rely on the Away The Carry On for so many travels along with the Nomad Lane Bag


To make it all the better, the Away luggage lifetime warranty is one of the best around, ensuring that you’ll have a fully functioning suitcase for life. It covers any damage to your suitcase’s shell, wheels, handles, zippers, or anything else that renders it unusable. 

If anything breaks (which is rare), readers report incredible customer service and a quick replacement of any faulty or damaged parts. This is why one reader says Away luggage is worth every penny and then some and calls it a lifetime investment! Check out what’s inside the Away suitcase in this video review!

Monos Carry-On Pro




Made of aerospace-grade, water-resistant polycarbonate, Monos suitcases are virtually indestructible, and they’re also very lightweight. Each suitcase is decked out with a soft, anti-microbial lining to keep things fresh, an anti-microbial laundry bag, an interior compression pad with a pocket, two shoe bags, and a combination lock to secure everything. One reader says the quality of her Monos carry-on is outstanding, and that she’s had it for four years and it still looks and functions as if it was brand new! 

One of the most popular Monos suitcases is the Carry-On Pro which features an external laptop sleeve, but they also have classic carry-ons, checked bags, a duffel bag, weekender bag, crossbodies, sling bag, toiletry case, and more. Readers love the fun color options, too.

Monos offers hard shell luggage with lifetime warranty, whether your item was purchased directly from Monos or from an authorized third-party retailer. The warranty covers any cracks or breaks in the shell, wheels or handles that have broken off or have stopped working, and broken zippers. Monos will either ship you a replacement part with installation instructions or an entire replacement luggage, depending on the issue.

Travelpro® Platinum® Elite Carry-On Spinner




Readers absolutely adore Travelpro, specifically for its ultra-lightweight suitcases, excellent mobility, softside and hardside options, and top-notch craftsmanship. Readers say Travelpro luggage is incredibly durable, and point out that it’s the most common luggage brand used by airline crews!

Travelpro offers carry-ons and check-in bags of all sizes, with the Platinum Elite Collection being the most widely recommended among readers – specifically the 21” Expandable Carry-On, and the 20” Business Plus Carry-On. Their hardside bags are made from strong polycarbonate shells that resist cracking, splitting, scratches, and scuffs, while their softside bags are made from high-density fabrics that resist water, stains, and abrasions.

While your Travelpro will no doubt hold up beautifully to the wear and tear of travel, the Travelpro Luggage Lifetime Warranty will cover defects on major components like wheels, zippers, and handles. Plus, many of their most popular bags are covered by the Travelpro Trusted Companion Promise, which will also cover the cost of repair for damage caused by an airline or other common carrier.

Beloved among the outdoorsy travelers in the TFG community, the Osprey luggage is rugged, adventure-ready, and quite attractive, too! Readers obsess over their Osprey bags, sharing that they’re extremely lightweight, functional, and decked out with all the organizational features you could need. 

The carry-on suitcases are the most popular with readers, though they’ve also given Osprey’s checked suitcases and duffel bags tons of praise. Osprey also offers hiking packs and waist packs, among other styles, which are specifically designed for women’s bodies, making for the most comfortable and secure fit possible. The Tempest 20 backpack is popular for both a hiking day back and a personal item, while the Transporter 4 Hybrid Suitcase gets amazing reviews for its organization, spacious interior, and smooth ride. 

The “All Mighty Guarantee” is another major reason that readers love this brand. Osprey takes such pride in the quality of their luggage that they will always repair damage or defect in your bag for any reason, free of charge! And if repairs aren’t possible, they’ll replace the bag altogether.

July Carry On




July is a newer luggage brand that TFG readers have recently started sharing about. Its suitcases boast a chic, modern look that features unique, eggshell-shaped corners reinforced with aluminum bumpers. One reader who travels around 200,000 miles a year says she plans on investing in another July suitcase because its polycarbonate shell and spinner wheels are superior to other suitcases she’s had, the interior is really nice with plenty of organization, and it has a great warranty. 

July’s Classic suitcase collection features multiple carry-on options, so you can choose what features matter most to you, like a built-in charger or an exterior laptop sleeve, while the checked bags are also offered in expandable versions. The Light collection offers unbelievably lightweight (yet super resilient) suitcases, with the Carry-On Light weighing a mere 3.9 lbs, while the Trunk collection’s stylish, trunk-style suitcases close with lockable latches rather than a zipper. 

All July luggage comes with a limited lifetime warranty that’ll cover defects on your bag’s wheels, zippers, handles, compression straps, and cracks or breaks in the polycarbonate shell or aluminum bumpers.

In a glowing review, one TFGer says that she’s had a B&R suitcase for over 20 years and that she travels a lot; it still looks brand new, and she knows it’ll last forever. Readers adore this brand and say that the higher price point is well worth it. 

The Baseline Global 21” suitcase and the Baseline 26” suitcase are two particular reader favorites. Along with their carry-ons and checked-bags, Briggs & Riley also offers business travel essentials like rolling garment bags, laptop backpacks, and weekender bags. As a plus, B&R luggage is offered in dark, neutral colors that are sleek and will stay looking nice over time.

Béis has been garnering tons of praise in the TFG community for its fashion-forward designs that are equally as functional. Designed to be affordable without sacrificing an ounce of quality, readers confirm that Béis bags can withstand tons of wear and tear and will come out on the other side looking fab. One reader who has the carry-on shares that she’s used it for multiple 14+ day trips and I will not buy another brand of luggage — Béis has been the best quality for her.

This brand’s luggage is made of sturdy polycarbonate that comes in a range of cute colors, AND has an ultra-cool, weight indicator built into the side handle that will light up if your bag is overweight! Readers say they’re easy and smooth to roll around, the telescoping handle is sturdy and comfortable to use, and the interior zip pockets and drawstring pouches inside are super handy. The Carry-On Roller is the #1 pick with readers!
