I have a red carry-on and a light blue old style suitcase (meaning it has wheels but no handle). I just bought a large duffel-bag with wheels and a handle and it is a combination of gray and black.

Light purple. It's ugly as heck but I can spot my luggage from 1,000 feet away....

Mine is dark red. When I bought it, everyone else was buying blue and black luggage. Now mine looks like everone else's. Ho hum ...

... except for the big chartreuse 'Leonidas' ribbon that lives tied around the handle.

Brick red. It came with my DH's car as some kind of anniversary promotion. If we're going by car we use my grandmother's set of 1960's bright red, hard-case Samsonite. Very retro and fun to use but I don't trust the airlines with it.

Navy blue Samsonite large wheeled "sports" bags ( x2), I find them to be fairly indestructible, well so far anyway. I also have a green and brown suede luggage set for more "special" occasions and not for plane handling . So far touch wood, I have never had any luggage lost.

Dark blue, but going to buy me something much lighter. Since we have to weight our luggage, and make sure it not exceed the required weight - the "older" heavy duty style is obsolete now.

I never have a problem spotting my black and dark blue suitcases on the pick up site as we alway put a lime green luggage strap round it. I have been doing this since the 90s and wonder why more people don't do it.

And you've never had the strap stolen? It's a great way to spot your luggage but we had so many taken off suitcases I began to think we were supplying half the world with bright yellow belts.

I finally stopped using them.

I have a blue roll-on with a tiny red coin purse attached, for visibility.
