After being in the business 90 plus years at Kaehler we like to consider ourselves luggage history buffs, but it was a general surprise to hear the details surrounding the creation of the Dopp kit. Little did we know, the Dopp kit’s creation was actually just mere months before the founding of Kaehler Luggage in the very same city of Chicago. The Dopp kit is a pivotal design that, needless to say, we are fans of. It’s the traveler’s equivalent to the handyman’s tool belt; you don’t leave the house without it when traveling. In honor of this ever-practical travel accessory here are a few things that will change the way you look at your Dopp kit.

Today kicks off Kaehler’s annual sidewalk sale. In honor of this fantastic street fest we thought what better time than now to cover Chicago’s top five street festivals. The Chicago street festival has been a long time-honored tradition. Over time, street fests have proved to be a meeting grounds for the arts, food, local merchandise, music, and so much more. Although our winters may be cold Chicago always makes up for it come street fest season. This year, we've compiled a list of our five favorite summer street festivals across the Chicago area that you should make sure not to miss, as well as a little more info on our personal favorite, Sidewalk Sale.
Victorinox is now having a carry-on sale for its Spectra 2.0 and Werks Traveler 4.0 collections, and we thought what better time to put two of their favorite carry-ons to the test? Carry-on bags are admittedly one of the trickier luggage purchases to make, but we’re going to make it easy by giving you a face-off between these two designs. Drawing on our luggage golden rule, bags are made for specific travel styles, we are going to give you a side-by-side comparison of these two, and just who they best cater to when hitting the road.
