|Titan's X2 Flash line resists shocks.|
Most hard-sided suitcases are still heavy and unwieldy. Not so the new Titan. The X2 Flash line from Titan Luggage is lightweight, with smooth-rolling multidirectional wheels, and an ultra-durable, shock-resistant polycarbonate shell. The 22-inch carry-on (about $440) has plenty of room for your overnight gear and still fits neatly into a standard overhead compartment. It opens like a clamshell, and its zippered compartment and detachable toiletries bag keep everything organized. You can find it at Bretts Luggage, 435 Boston Post Road, Sudbury (978-440-9400, suitcase.com). The series also includes a hard-sided laptop case, a beauty case, and 24-, 26-, and 29-inch rolling suitcases. In eye-popping colors like taxi-cab yellow and lime green, you'll definitely know which bag on the carousel is yours.
