For the most part, luggage is pretty gender-neutral. You have your standard solid black color option with most bags. However, when it comes to luggage sets, there are a lot of matching patterns that tend to have a feminine look. Thankfully, there are still sets of luggage that look more masculine and are available for sale; you just have to know where to look. We have sorted through all the women’s luggage sets to keep them off this list of the top men’s luggage sets. These sets come highly-reviewed and are in order of our favorites.
This set is our #1 favorite men’s luggage set for several reasons. It’s a very well-made four piece set for less than $300. Tommy Bahama is a brand name which caters mostly to men and has a sort of “island” motif, even though they’re based out of Seattle. They go after the “casual male” and seem to maintain a steady expansion of product offerings. All we care about though is the best men’s luggage, and this set is our favorite.
Functionally speaking, you get a lot with this set. If you’re flying, you can check the medium and large suitcase, carry on the smallest, and use the wheeled duffle bag as your personal item. The bags themselves are surprisingly roomy and also very sturdy.
If there’s one brand geared towards the male demographic, it has to be Timberland. Mostly known for work boots, Timberland also knows a thing or two about luggage. Staying true to the rugged outdoorsy style that made them famous, their luggage reflects a camping and outdoorsy style. Currently, this bag is available in two colors, burnt orange and cocoa. The video below highlights one of the suitcases, but it’s a pretty good representation of the overall style and quality of all the other pieces. If you’re an avid camper or hiker, this set will probably compliment your style very nicely.
Nautica makes some of the best luggage sets, but our favorite has to be the Charter four-piece set. Nautica is a somewhat gender-neutral brand, and a lot of their luggage sets come with a tote bag as their smallest piece. For the guys who don’t want a tote bag, Nautica has created a few sets that have the tote replaced by a small duffle bag.
We think this is a pretty stylish bag that a lot of guys will really like. It’s also a lot cheaper on Amazon than any other place that we’ve found. Nautica definitely makes a lot of other great luggage sets, so if you’re looking for something different, make sure to search them out at the link below.
Disclaimer: This is a four-piece set. The video below does not show the duffle bag.
Adolfo Venice is a luggage brand that you may not be familiar with. Adolfo typically manufactures clothing, but also make one of the best luggage sets for men, so we had to add it to our top 5 list. It’s normally impossible to find a good quality set for under $200, but the folks at Adolfo provide a solid set four bags, plus a garment sleeve.
This is the only set on our list which comes with a garment bag, making it a great all-in-one solution. The black and red color combination is striking and bold – definitely a top pick from The Luggage List.
Large Suitcase: 29” x 19.5” x 11” (Expands to 13”) | 10.8 lbs
Medium Suitcase: 25” x 17” x 10” (Expands to 12”) | 9.3 lbs
Carry on Suitcase: 21” x 14.5” x 9” (Expands to 11”) | 7.9 lbs
For our last set to make our top list, we went with a classic favorite of ours – the Traveler’s Choice Tasmania. This set isn’t specifically for men or women, but rather pretty neutral. The truth is, most guys just want something neutral, which is why this is one of the best options for men looking for just a solid colored, good quality set. You can get this set in either navy, purple, red or dark brown.
This is the only hard sided set on our list, as well as the only three-piece set on our list. A popular feature of this set is the built in TSA recognized combination locks, saving you from buying separate locks. You can see from the video below that, for a hard shell, this set is very flexible and very durable. Over 100 people have reviewed this set on Amazon and the average rating is a pretty solid 4.6/5 star average. This set is an Amazon best seller for a reason – if you’re looking for a men’s luggage set that isn’t very flashy, go with the Traveler’s Choice 3-piece set.
Whether you’re looking for luggage sets that are minimal and plain, or something with a little bit of masculine style, there is a set out there just for you if you know where to look. We hope that our list of the best luggage sets for men helps you to find the right set you’re looking for that you can gift or use yourself for many years to come.
