While traveling, I noticed the vast majority of travelers had black luggage, followed by red. What color is your luggage? Also, why is it that some luggage manufacturers (e.g. Tumi, Briggs) make the majority of their luggage in one color option...black. Just pondering.

My luggage set is Purple and brown. Sounds odd but is really pretty together. My kids each have a different color for their set. One has hot pink w/ white polka dots and the other has neon green w/ white polka dots. We can SPOT our luggage EASY! Don't spend a lot of money on luggage though. They TEAR IT UP!!!

Ours is gray. Black dates back to the olden days of being associated with the wealthy.

You can never go wrong with black, imo!
It's classic! I have good eyes, and I tend to be able to spot them easily on the conveyor belt.

That being said, I would love to get pink luggage. I'm such a girl! :-)

I think there's a lot of black luggage made simply because it matches everything.

I'm certainly not wealthy, but have black luggage. It hides dirt (but shows dog fur).

Really? I thought the wealthy used huge trunks. Well, perhaps those were black.
My "luggage" is a black backpack.
And I agree about the pet hair.

I had red/black; but it got torn up now I have green. I won't buy black for the very reason that EVERYONE has black. Coming off the carousel you can't figure out who is whose!

Mine is forest green, the same color as my truck.
I saw some really NICE Tommy Hilfiger hot pink but I don't need another set.
