Modern travel is an incredible privilege. It’s also an incredible pain in the ass. Most of the elements that make it so painful—big lines, small seats, interminable delays—you can’t do a damn thing about. But there are a couple crucial elements you can control, namely how you look and feel. With FPM’s roller, you’ll the best-equipped guy stranded on the tarmac, with a bag full of cleverly packed essentials that’ll make the whole trip that much easier.
About that bag: It’s the foundation of your whole travel vibe. It should work well, but it should al- so look great. And a little luxury goes a long way, too. FPM is a 73-year-old premium luggage brand that fuses two of Italy’s greatest strengths— modern industrial design and artisanal chutzpah. Its heart and soul is its Bank collection, made from corrugated aluminum held together with hundreds of steel rivets. The robust design looks impregnable (hence the name), but there’s serious luxury in the pains- taking assembly, most of it by hand and finished with touches, like the handles, that nod to FPM’s leather-making roots.
