This summer we are dealing with another unexpected fallout of the pandemic: a luggage shortage! Sheesh, first it was toilet paper, and now it’s suitcases. Annoying. With luggage a little harder to find right now here are several pieces of in-stock luggage that just so happen to be on sale. You. Are. Welcome.
Writer Ashley Kosciolek recently reported on the shortage in a piece for The Points Guy where she observed extremely thin quantities of luggage at several major retailers. Further research seemed to suggest she was on to something and that indeed we might be in for a luggage shortage.
This is really no surprise given the events of the last 18 months which more or less gutted the travel industry leaving providers at first with too much inventory, and now, apparently, too little (likely because they were forced to slow production in the heat of the pandemic.
If you, like me, have big travel plans this summer you might find yourself forced to dreg out that dusty old beater you still haven’t upgraded yet if you can’t find something new and in-stock. To help, we’ve identified several pieces of luggage that you can find right now. Good luck!
We are big fans of the Knack Pack having reviewed it here. We travel with this bag on every single trip and many times (for shorter trips) it’s the only bag we take. See free shipping offers for in-stock black model.
Good luck out there this summer. May your airport lines be short, your upgrades be frequent and your unruly passenger incidents be few!
