    'Belongings' might be suitable, depending on your context. – Nigel J Mar 16 '18 at 10:12

I think that luggage may fit here:

  • the bags, suitcases, etc. that contain your possessions and that you take with you when you are travelling.

or, a more generic term is:

belongings, often personal belongings:

  • the things that a person owns, especially those that can be carried.
