Choose from hard-sided or soft-sided in a variety of sizes (or you can choose the best-suited case for you based on the number of days you’ll be traveling) and an extensive menu of features including tablet-friendly bags. The new colors, especially plum, are perfect for fall and monogramming is available to make it your own.
The cases also come with a lifetime guarantee, even if damage is caused by the airline or — as the brand itself puts it — damage caused by “any reason whatsoever.”

Velocity Black is an invite-only, digital members’ club for the cash-rich but time-poor traveler. The brainchild of two former finance professionals, Zia Yusuf and Alex McDonald, the app was born from their desire to make the most of their valuable free time.
The app has a one-minute response time, so you can request information on a particular trip at any time of the day and quickly connect with an advisor to plan your adventure: Charter a plane, book your favorite suite in your favorite hotel, reserve a table at a Michelin-starred restaurant or try something new.
There’s a 10-day trek through the Himalayas to track the rarely seen snow leopard; Velocity Black works with the national park and rangers, and uses satellite technology to make sure you have the highest chance of seeing the notoriously elusive animal.
