Black but I usually put some sticker on my bag so I can identify it easily, advantage of black is that it doesn't show dirt.

Navy blue with stickers and ribbon ties for id.

Would love to have red, though!

Ours are black. But I use very colorful straps and tags to help me spot them.

Tumi owner here. It's pink.

I got a great set of Burberry plaid luggage on E-bay. The distinctive pattern is very easy to spot. My husband's luggage is black. I always have my luggage way before he can find his.

What kind of stickers do you use? Do they tend to peel off?
I have read of people purchasing black luggage and putting colored duct tape around the perimeter. Has anyone tried that?

I have a lot of luggage-- I guess that is what happens when you end up spending 75-80% of your life traveling for work. I have a Lipault purple collapsible rolling carry on bag. A large black North Face rolling duffle bag.

My favorites are an Osprey Meridian green carry on roll on. I have ONLY in my life ran into one person who had the same style in a different color of this bag.

I also have an Osprey Porter Carry on collapsible bag-- I love this because it can be made very small and fit into another suitcase or you can just port it on your back-- it is great because it is very balanced even when stuffed to the gills and makes it super easy to navigate around airports, train stations, metros, etc. LOVE this bag.

Actually come to think of it I much prefer the Osprey line of products than anything else I have ever used (same applies to backpacks and computer bags).
