Get Packing for Family Travel with Atlantic Luggage + Giveaway (US) #AtlanticLuggage

This post brought to you by Atlantic Luggage. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you have family travel plans for this summer? Whether you’re going on a trip across the country for a month or a weekend getaway to the town next door, Atlantic Luggage will take care of your packing woes!


When you’re packing for family travel, it can be difficult to make sure you get everything you need into the limited space that you have. Did you know that I have a secret talent? I do! I am an insanely excellent packer. Just ask anyone who saw my suitcases when I went on a cruise a few years ago! Not only did I manage to pack all of the clothes we could possibly need for 8 days at sea, but I also packed up a two-page bullet-point list of “just in case” items, all into one suitcase per person.

When Atlantic Luggage challenged us to see how much we could fit into their lightweight, versatile suitcase, I was totally ready to blow you away with my packing skills!

Just how much can you fit into Atlantic Luggage?


The short answer to that: more than you think! To make the challenge fun, I emptied out two of my dresser drawers. One of the drawers housed all my summer shirts and is a good three feet wide. The other is a smaller yet deep drawer with my summer shorts. All together, I had about 25 shirts, 8 pairs of shorts and 3 pairs of pants. I also needed to get my toiletry bag in there somewhere!


Now, the big question is, will it zip? Amazingly, yes! Plus, after I zipped it, I discovered that there was an expander zipper. I still could have fit more in!


With all those clothes stuffed into the suitcase, I thought it was going to weigh a ton when I lifted it. I took a deep breath and grabbed the handle. Guess what? Since the Atlantic luggage itself is lightweight, it really wasn’t nearly as heavy as I thought it would be! Since I discovered that extra space, now I know I can add a few books for relaxing during our family travel time.

I just love how stylish my Atlantic Luggage is. That happens to be my favorite color! Plus, it’s affordable enough to buy pieces for the entire family. While I usually pack my stuff along with my son’s, as he’s getting older he’ll want his own space for the plethora of items he needs to bring on vacation.

  1. I am going to Lakeland, Florida on July 4th to see my son’s band play! I’m so excited, I haven’t seen him in months!

  2. I want to go on a beach trip in the next couple of months and could really use a nice piece of luggage (the other stuff has gotten a little beat up).

  3. I’m actually going on my first vacation to Washington DC and could really use luggage for the trip.

    I’m going to Switzerland, Germany, Austria, and Italy this summer! I would love to win luggage!

  6. Kathy Kuykendal

    We are taking a long 3,200+ mile road trip this August. We will be in and out of several states and hotels. Great luggage is a must….so this would be wonderful to win. If it is on wheel my daughter can pull it along side her wheelchair which she gets a kick out of. She loves that she is helping me carry the bags in!

  7. We are flying from Michigan to New Orleans, my husband and our 2 teenage sons. We also only have a 40lb limit, I would love to win this new lightweight luggage! I still have an Atlantic piece of luggage I purchased 25 years ago! Still in great shape too, but it would be nice to have something new!

  8. I am taking a trip in September to visit my best friend in London. I have had my luggage for 14 years. A new case would be fantastic!

  9. We attend an annual Convention and could really use a lovely bag like this to travel in style with all the room! Loved seeing how well you packed your bag!

  10. I’m heading down to Florida to visit my brother, and of course, I am driving, so it will take a while and have a couple stops along the way.

  11. I am hoping to finalize details of my trip to Santa Barbara. I have family in the area and let’s say time is of the essence that I get down there.

  12. We are going camping and I need something to keep my clothes contained. Thanks for the opportunity.

  13. We have a family vacation planned to Myrtle Beach SC in August… My luggage was my highschool graduation present. Did I mention my daughter, son-in-law and grand children are coming on this vacation with us? Yes, the luggage is THAT old! Thanks for the chance to win!

  14. Deanna Middendorf

    I am going to the Ozarks, several small overnight trips to St Louis and Chicago, and hopefully to LA soon. Other possibilities as well but my luggage is so torn up I had to take it to the shoe repair place to get it sewn back together. I need to go for it and get some new stuff.

  15. Chantelle Walker

    Japan in November. Decided to finally start seeing the world πŸ™‚ Need luggage though I still have time; winning would be even better πŸ˜‰

  16. My husband and I have a vacation booked at an all inclusive resort in Jamaica for the beginning of August. We could certainly use a handy new piece of luggage to travel internationally with us!

  17. I’m headed to Nashville this summer. A new suitcase would be great – thanks so much for the giveaway!

  18. We are planning our next trip right now. We really want to head out to Texas to visit family and friends.

  19. Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky, OH (by way of Texas) for a family reunion. Really I’m all over those roller coasters! πŸ™‚

  20. I love to go with my sisters to San Diego so it is something i could really use my zipper broke on my cheap bag so this would be wonderful to travel with.

  21. I’m due to give birth in July so I’m really not sure we will be doing much traveling. If anything, because we live in Florida, we might do a “staycation” at a somewhat local resort. I’ve lived here for 8 years and have yet to go to the Keys, so we might just be traveling there the end of summer.

  22. robyn donnelly

    We would travel to the west coast for a few days. There are three adults and only 1 suitcase in house.

  23. Rachel Chappell

    I’m heading to England in the fall to start a PhD program! My last trip over there actually saw the end of my largest suitcase (the wheels fell off!) so I could definitely use a new piece of good quality luggage!

  24. My boyfriend and I have five out of town weddings to go to this summer… FIVE! A good piece of luggage would come in really handy!

  25. I often times have to go into the hospital for medical reasons…. This has always been a problem since I was 5 years old! As an adult it has continued to be a problem but I dont often have the ability to bring items; this would ensure I have everything ready to go – should the event happen! It will also hold the paperwork of medical records!


  26. Hi! This is really a nice piece of luggage! I would need it to go to Wisconsin to visit family & friends. I’ll only go there during the Summer because it’s so cold any other time. lol Thank-you!!

  27. This summer we are taking a family vacation to the beach and could really use a nice, functioning piece of luggage. We have one that has a broken zipper and is infinity years old, it’s such a pain!

  28. Heather Hayes Panjon

    I’ll Be Traveling To Ecuador, I Need Luggage That Has A lot Of Space And Lightweight, This Would Be Perfect!

  29. We are planning a trip to New York! Can’t wait and this would help making it a little bit easier.

  30. Amanda Alvarado

    We are going to the Island for my HS reunion in a few weeks and then we’ll be going on vacation in July – where we don’t know yet but more than likely Dallas and Minnesota!

  31. Up to Vancouver, Canada to visit family. My husband broke the handle on our last piece of luggage and with a little one in tow, I need a new set!
