Riding hot on the heels of its hugely successful Ridge Travel Collection, Ridge further expands its line of functional, durable, and stylish travel gear to offer even more options when planning your next trip. The new additions include the Ridge Check-In Luggage, Ridge Weekender Duffel, and, by popular demand, the Ridge Personalized Logo Plates. Let’s check each out to see how they fit into the collection.

Ridge Check-In Luggage: Designed for the Long Haul

Serving as the perfect companion to the previously released Ridge Carry-On, the Ridge Check-In offers the same impressive materials that make its little sibling a fan favorite. Its exterior shell, measuring 26.5″ x 18.5″ x 10.5”, is crafted from German Makrolon polycarbonate—a material that’s 30% thicker than standard plastic shells and is highly flexible. This makes it nearly impossible to break and able to absorb energy from impact while staying lightweight.

The corners are usually the parts of the luggage that sustain the most abuse during transit, so it’s great that black anodized aluminum corner protectors reinforce the corners of the Ridge Check-In Luggage. Compared to standard plastic corners, they do a much better job protecting your luggage from rough handling. We’re also glad to see YKK Racquet Coil zippers keeping the case together. Zippers are the primary failure point for any luggage, and Ridge went with the best in the business to ensure smooth and reliable performance. Oversized 360° spinner wheels keep things moving smoothly even over rougher terrain, while two handles keep options open for vertical or horizontal carry.

Open it up, and you’ll be greeted by a 70-liter compartment lined with 200D nylon fabric. 200D nylon is often found in tactical vests because of its high tear strength, so you can expect the Ridge Check-In’s interior to serve you well for years. You’ll also find a removable compression panel with its own zipped pocket to efficiently use any available space and a zipped panel on the left side to make separating items more manageable and organized. And just like the Ridge Carry-On, the Ridge Check-In has a pocket for AirTags or any GPS tracker, so you’ll always know where your luggage is at any given time.

The Ridge Check-In Luggage is available for $445 USD in Matte Olive, Basecamp Orange, Alpine Navy, Royal Black, or Gunmetal.

Ridge Weekender Duffel Bag: Works Hard, Plays hard

If you’ve got several short trips planned after you reach your destination, it wouldn’t be practical to roll your belongings around with you, especially if you’re going camping or attending a sporting event. That’s where a duffel bag comes in. Lightweight and compact, duffel bags are still spacious enough for all your essentials for the weekend while allowing enough versatility for whatever comes your way. 

The Ridge Weekender Duffel Bag answers these needs and offers several convenient features for good measure. The exterior is made from a weatherproof 900D ballistic nylon shell held together by YKK AquaGuard zippers, providing excellent protection against the elements. It measures a compact 19″ x 19″ x 12″, so you can use it as a carry-on, while a removable shoulder strap offers customizable carry options.

You’ve got 32L of space inside, with the 210D antimicrobial nylon lining ensuring longevity and helping resist bacteria and mold, making it ideal for holding clothes that may get wet. Two mesh organization pockets keep essentials organized, and a dedicated pocket for AirTags or any small GPS tracker ensures you’ll always know where your luggage is. The Ridge Weekender Duffel Bag is available now for $195 USD.

Personalized Logo Pates: Make It Personal 

One of the more frustrating things that could happen on your trip is realizing that several bags look just like yours, and you’re left second-guessing which bag to grab from the baggage carousel. With Ridge’s Personalized Logo Plates, you’ll never have to worry about that again. Available in Royal Black, Hyper Lime, and High Dive Blue (made from 6061-T6 aerospace-grade anodized aluminum), Stonewashed Grade 2 Titanium, and Carbon Fiber 3k, the Personalized Logo Plates allow you to customize your Ridge gear with three characters, making it uniquely yours.

Each Personalized Logo Plate is compatible with any of Ridge’s travel bags, including the Carry-On, Check-In, Weekender Duffel Bag, Commuter Backpack 20L, and Travel Kit. They’re also scratch-resistant, so you don’t have to worry about them getting scuffed in transit. As a bonus, Ridge’s website even allows you to see what your custom text will look like before you purchase. The aluminum plates are priced at $25 USD, while the titanium and carbon fiber plates are priced at $30 USD and $35 USD, respectively. 

Ridge Frequent Flyer Kit: An All-in-One Travel Solution

If you’re new to the Ridge Travel Collection family, Ridge offers you a chance to purchase a complete travel system at a hugely discounted price with the Ridge Frequent Flyer Kit. It includes the Ridge Carry-On and Ridge Check-In bundled together for $550 USD, giving you a massive savings of $240 USD. You also get to add the Ridge Commuter Backpack for another 15% off, plus additional discounts on essential add-ons: the Ridge Packing Cubes, Hanging Airtag Holder, the Packable Backpack, and the Basecamp Orange Toiletry Bag.
