“Wherever your travels take you, we roam with you”‘
When you’re standing on the baggage carousel surveying a sea of indistinguishable suitcases, you want to make sure yours stands out. Enter Roam, the first luxury luggage brand to offer fully customizable premium bags.
Founded by two former Tumi executives, the company puts its “one-of-a-kind” slogan to work by giving customers the ability to design their own cases from the shell cover down to the zipper.
ROAM Is The Way To Go
Compared to the price of traditional luxury luggage brands like Tumi and Rimowa, ROAM luggage is relatively affordable. However, if you are a traveler that leans towards brighter hues or metallic finishes, the limited selection of colors may be a deterrent for your purchase. Moreover, the bag’s stiff zipper, which is by design to create a waterproof seal, could be annoying for travelers who pack light or frequently repack their bags.
The direct-to-consumer brand’s most popular bag is the carry-on size, which can be customized with up to seven different colors for the front and back shell, zipper, binding, wheels, carry handles, and a monogram patch. The customizable suitcase also features a TSA-approved lock built into the handle and a smooth Hinomoto ball-bearing wheel system. Its sleek, durable 100% virgin US polycarbonate shell wards off scratches and dents. And the telescopic aluminum handle glides smoothly through four height settings without snags or wobbles. Its lining is antimicrobial and includes a pocket that protects electronics. The bag is backed by a limited lifetime warranty. However, cosmetic damage such as stains and scratches are not covered.
Additionally, ROAM Luggage offers an array of cool tote bags and travel backpacks, that are perfect for your getaways. The totes are the ideal accessory for beach days or family outings. Backpacks are ideal for hiking trips, or long distancing walking like in the streets of Italy.
Unlike other luggage companies that offer only a few color options for their products, ROAM has a broader range of customization options. The company’s website allows you to design your own bag and the site also has a selection of pre-designed bags that are themed for different types of travel, including destinations and weddings (there is even a “Wedding Special”).
Designed by former Tumi executives, ROAM luggage is built in the USA with durable, lightweight materials, such as 100% virgin US polycarbonate shells that ward off scratches and dents. Its wheels and telescoping handles are super-smooth, and its TSA-approved lock is integrated into the case. It even has a built-in digital scale and an expandable option for added flexibility.
It lets you choose a different color for nearly every part of the suitcase, from the front and back shells to the zipper, binding, and lining. You can also select from a wide range of handle colors and even add a monogram patch. The website will update the image as you make your selections so you can get a good idea of how your finished product will look.
Having been founded by a former Tumi executive and tattoo artist, it’s no wonder ROAM has gotten compared to that brand when travelers talk about it. But while they both are high-end luggage brands, the two differ in how they offer products to their customers.
ROAM offers a wide range of color options for both their hard-sided and soft-sided bags. They also have an easier process for ordering a suitcase, as the company will assemble it for you in their factory and ship it to your door within a few business days.
The company’s newest product is the Jaunt, a sleek large carry-on that’s perfect for short trips between two cities or as an addition to your larger checked bag for longer travels. The case is made with a 100% virgin US polycarbonate shell and includes a TSA-approved lock fully integrated into the lid. The telescoping handle is lightweight and smooth-riding, while the spinner wheels roll effortlessly.
The Perfect Size
One of the defining moments that you’re officially an adult is when your search for luggage turns into a systematic (spreadsheets may be involved) process to find a light, large capacity, rolling suitcase that fits within airline carry-on size restrictions and also looks good. That’s where ROAM comes in.
Its sleek cases are made with sturdy exteriors of 100% virgin US polycarbonate, which helps it withstand rough treatment from baggage handlers. Its telescoping handles are made of aircraft-grade aluminum, and its Hinomoto spinner wheels roll smoothly over almost any surface. And it has a useful TSA-approved lock fully built into its handle, so you don’t need to purchase an additional lock.
Like other hard-sided luggage, ROAM’s cases are lightweight and have ample room for your clothes, shoes, toiletries and electronics. But unlike most competitors, its case design has a clean, modern look and an embossed finish that minimizes scratches. Plus, its compression features and luggage address tag make it easier to spot your bag at baggage claim. You can even personalize it with a monogram, which adds an extra touch of luxury.
Good To Know
Designed by former Tumi luggage brand executives, ROAM suitcases are well-nigh bulletproof and manufactured in the USA. They’re constructed of hard-wearing materials like 100% virgin polycarbonate, aircraft-grade aluminum handles, and Hinomoto ball-bearing wheels. Guests can also opt for an expandable suitcase that makes it easy to fit more clothes in less space.
The company takes the concept of customization to a whole new level, allowing guests to color-customize every aspect of their bag, from its front and back shells to its binding and zipper tabs. With more than a million possible combinations, travelers are sure to be able to stand out in the travel herd with their one-of-a-kind bags.
Guests can choose colors for the front and back shells, as well as the zipper, binding, wheels, carry handles, and a monogram patch. They’re also able to select the size of their suitcase, from the traditional carry-on to a Large Check-In, so that they can find a perfect match for their travel style. The company ships all pieces to customers for free and offers a 100-day risk-free return period.
