Traveling is scary enough, but for so many travelers, a new fear was unlocked when experts shared how easy it is to break into standard zippered suitcases — and all it takes is a pencil.

Luckily, there’s a solution to this common concern, and it’s simply investing in zipperless luggage with no exposed zippers for the main compartment.

Travel expert on TikTok @millennialwealthsarah showed just how easy it is to break into a suitcase using a pencil or any semi-sharp object and gave a few tips on what types of luggage to avoid.

“Basically, what they’re doing is they’re taking their pen, and they’re just pushing between there, and they’re getting into your suitcase,” she said while demonstrating how it’s done and even going on to show how physically locking your zipper with a standard suitcase lock serves no purpose.

When offering solutions, she recommended investing in zipperless luggage since they have no openings that can be easily compromised. Also, these suitcases all have TSA-approved locking systems that let you set your own personal code that only you know. That way, your suitcase stays locked at all times unless it’s in your presence and you choose to unlock it yourself.

If you’re unsure of which zipperless luggage pieces to buy, we’ve rounded up our five favorite picks below from brands like Monos, Samsonite and Coolife. These all also have hard outer shells, so you’ll never have to worry about your suitcase’s contents getting wet or crushed.

Monos is my personal favorite and is also @millennialwealthsarah‘s top recommendation. I own the Monos Hybrid Carry-On and can confidently say it’s the strongest, most beautiful and most secure suitcase I’ve ever used.

I can’t say enough positive things about this luggage piece. It’s a part of Monos’ best-selling Hybrid luggage collection, which consists of all-zipperless suitcases. The carry-on is ultra-lightweight and unbreakable thanks to its polycarbonate shell. It has two TSA-approved locks, whisper-quiet wheels and comes in three gorgeous colors (Champagne, Obsidian and Silver).

4. Monos Hybrid Check-In Medium, $405

The Monos Hybrid Check-In Medium is for those who need to check their luggage but don’t have a lot to pack. It’s the perfect medium-sized check-in piece and has all the same features as the Hybrid Carry-On.

Best of all? If you own them both, the Hybrid Carry-On nests perfectly inside the Hybrid Check-In Medium for easy storage.

5. Monos Hybrid Check-In Large, $435

If you’re going on a longer trip and need more space, the Monos Hybrid Check-In Large is your best bet. I also own this one, and it’s the sturdiest check-in luggage piece I own. Also, the Obsidian color (pictured above) is beautiful in person.

Every time I use this, I’m surprised by how lightweight it is — even when it’s fully packed up.

Ensure your belonging are always safe and secure with one of these zipperless luggage pieces. They give you so much more peace of mind.
