Luxury luggage can be hard to justify. It looks good, but it’s like a direct shot to the heart the first time it comes down the baggage carrousel with an impossible-to-ignore scuff on it. Thanks to luggage brands like Paravel, though, you don’t have to sacrifice having nice things over having things that are capable of withstanding any travel-related abuse you might put them through.

For the uninitiated, Andy Krantz and Vogue alum Indré Rockefeller are credited with launching the Aviator — the world’s first carbon-neutral suitcase (more on that later). Former coworkers at Madrid high fashion brand Delpozo, Krantz and Rockefeller knew all about the cost associated with luxury goods, so they went on to produce a wide range of bags, from suitcases to totes, and made them ultra affordable.

Most importantly, in addition to using durable, exclusively post-consumer recycled materials, Paravel offsets all of the emissions from sourcing, assembly, shipping and delivery, including the estimated carbon emissions of the first plane trip with the Aviator across the U.S. In short: they’re peddling hardwearing, luxury and sustainable luggage.

We went ahead and put together a definitive list of Paravel’s best products…and best gifts for the frequent flyer on your list. Because they might not say it, but what they really want is luxury luggage. That’s also hardwearing. And sustainable. Trust us on this one: they want Paravel.

Below, a few items we’re coveting ourselves this holiday season:

Aviator Grand
Aviator Grand

A bag that looks straight out of a Wes Anderson film, you’d never guess it was made entirely from plastic bottles. The Aviator Grand comes in five sharp colorways and features 360° double spinner wheels, an interior compression board, a scuff-hiding textured finish, a number of interior pockets and a removable laundry bag. The perfect companion for a week-long jaunt, it fits between 8-10 days worth of clothes, four pairs of shoes and, of course, will need to be checked.

Aviator Carry-On

For the one that’s committed to the carry-on game, at whatever cost: the Aviator Carry-On. It’s got all the same features as the Grand, but instead fits just 2-4 days worth of clothes and 1-2 pairs of shoes (unless you’re a carry-on packing pro, that is).

Cabana Passport Case

A passport case capable of holding credit cards and all manner of other IDs, the Cabana Passport Case comes in four colorways and can be monogrammed, making it a really thoughtful gift for just about anyone on your list.

Grand Tour Duffle
Grand Tour Duffle

Made of a durable, spill-proof Ecocraft Canvas and with vegan leather details, the Grand Tour Duffle is the crème de la crème of duffles. You don’t even need to be a frequent jet-setter to appreciate this bag, though it does hold around 4-5 sweaters, 4-5 pants or dresses and a week’s worth of shirts, socks and underwear, for context.

Cabana Backpack

Built to house all small essentials, the Cabana Backpack is a great elevated, everyday option for the backpack loyalist in your life. Snag it in one of four colorways and get it monogrammed to take things up a notch,

Cabana Pet Carrier

For the person on your list who can’t bear to travel without their pet: the Paravel Pet Carrier. Every Pet Carrier purchase helps cover medical and transportation bills for dogs at Rescue City, a rescue in Brooklyn, New York, too. In case you needed any extra incentive to buy.

Each cube even has a little view window that allows them to see inside without having to unpack its contents.
