Atlantic Luggage Set & Tips to Travel Smarter
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Atlantic Luggage for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.
As avid family travelers, I pack a lot of suitcases and I do mean A LOT. I pack for me, for my husband and for the rest of the family. In fact, sometimes I feel like we always have one suitcase packed around the house. There is always someone going somewhere but I pride myself on packing the perfect suitcase.

ABOUT ATLANTIC LUGGAGE
Atlantic Luggage is a lightweight and incredibly durable option for your luggage needs. They also have a great selection of pieces available in a variety of colors and sizes. This makes Atlantic luggage the perfect option for your family because everyone can have their own suitcase.
OUR THOUGHTS ON OUR LUGGAGE
The Atlantic Solstice Collection is by far our favorite. We received a the large, purple suitcase pictured above and I was able to pack for one week for my husband and all three of my children. All in that one suitcase. What I really love is that this piece of luggage only weighs 10 pounds so that means I still have 40 pounds to go and I can pack a LOT into those 40 pounds.
DIMENSIONS: 28 x 18 x 12
Having one suitcase for four people makes travel so much easier. We just cut down by half of what we would normally bring with us on a trip. The suitcase has sleek lines and really looks great. The purple color definitely stands out. The interior is pretty basic which allows you to really get a lot inside.

HOW WE TRAVEL SMARTER
I consider myself an expert in family travel since we travel so much. In order to maximize our luggage space and to always be able to bring home souvenirs, there are several things that we consistently do when traveling.
1. Roll and Stuff Everything
We tightly roll all of our clothing in our luggage and we even stuff our shoes with rolled clothing to maximize space.
2. Weigh Everything
We also weigh everything before we go to the airport so when we check our luggage, there are no surprises.
3. List it all
I make a list to pack from and this list is great because I use it again when we are leaving to ensure we are bringing everything home. This also works if luggage is lost and then you have an exact list of what was inside.

Great tips. I am such an over packer. I need to lighten my load.
This looks like beautiful luggage! I love the purple color too!
WANT!! We just came back from a trip to California and I remember now why I hated our luggage.
Doesn’t hold nearly enough.. and you have to drag it because the wheels are on the back.
Plus it’s soft material so it just gets smacked around on the plane.
Now this luggage looks durable!
Awesome bag! I love the color and the weight. I usually just make it when I pack.
I try to roll everything, I’ve been doing that for years; but I never thought to actually weigh the bags at home. What a great idea! I hate getting to the airport and being over the weight limit. This is a great post and even greater giveaway!
Loving the luggage. I’m in the market for some new luggage myself for an upcoming trip.
We travel a lot and our luggage is always getting scuffed during travel. This looks very sturdy
I’m decent at packing, but there’s no way I could fit a whole family in one. That’s pretty awesome!
These looks amazing. I am not happy with the set I got last year. Will look into these.
I have got to get one of these suitcases, they look so sturdy, and my current set is falling apart. Plus, winning a trip wouldn’t be so bad either.
The luggage is very eye catching. I could use a new set.
Thanks for the tips! Definitely need new luggage!
The luggage is cute and durable!!
I love that its lightweight and incredibly durable and they have some cute color options too!
It seems like a great set of luggage. I think having a nice set takes some of the stress out of packing.
I have 3 pieces of Atlantic luggage that I bought 25 years ago and STILL use it today! Love their quality and I like the zippered separator on the piece you have. Very nice luggage and durable.
This looks like fantastic luggage. I would love the purple ones. I will have to enter to win the trip to New York.
What gorgeous luggage! And it looks like it’s such great quality!
I really like the shell for lightweight durability.
Great luggage – would love to win – sadly i do not own 1 piece of luggage
I love this luggage! And I’m partial to the blue one, definitely 🙂
I love this luggage. My husband and I actually traveled this past weekend and we don’t own a carry on. This would be great luggage for us to invest in.
Love the luggage. It looks durable and roomy!
Ohh San Diego would be perfect for us! I love how spacious the luggage is. Very stylish also!
This looks like great luggage! We love to travel and good luggage is key. I’m in the market for some new luggage for us.
Sounds like a great set of luggage. Over the years we have gradually learned to pack lighter and smarter, especially when traveling by air. It is amazing how much can fit, even in the small suitcase. We could greatly us a nice upgrade in our luggage!
That looks awesome! We have similar luggages as well and they are great.
I haven’t gone on a vacation in almost 10 years, let alone bought any new luggage, and these look really nice!
My favorite feature of the luggage would be the Interior zippered divider panel with two built in zip pockets, side accessory pocket and adjustable hold down straps.
