Luggage is no small purchase. You’re investing in a bag you expect to use for a long time.
Your carry-on is your essential travel partner. It comes with you around the world. It protects your valuables and secures your essentials. You want it it be a long-lasting relationship, one that can withstand a few hits and roll with the punches. You want it to be high-end, yet able to blend in to any and all settings. Like you, the perfect carry-on should be versatile, under-spoken and utilitarian. So how do you know which brand and style is right for you?
Here are WorldTraveler’s picks for the best carry-ons based on your travel personality.
Global Jetsetter – Briggs & Riley Baseline CX International Carry-On Wide Body Spinner
If you frequently travel overseas, this bag is a best seller. Designed to be put through the paces, it’s durable and well crafted with an exterior made of ballistic nylon that’s moisture, dirt, and abrasion resistant no matter how hard the luggage carriers toss it around. It’s outfitted with patented expansion-compression technology that allows you to maximize your storage space and squeeze a few extra pieces in.
Minimalist – Rimowa – Salsa Deluxe – New Cabin Multiwheel Carry-On
A lightweight, hard shell case that fits into even the smallest overhead bins, this German designed carry-on is equal parts clean looking and functional. Equipped with two flex divider panels that double as accessory pockets, you can rest assured knowing everything has a place.
Fashionista – Rimowa – Topas – 21″ Cabin Multiwheel Carry-On
This bag is as striking as it is convenient. Manufactured out of silver aircraft aluminum, the design is meant to see and be seen without looking ostentatious or smattered in logos. Light, sturdy, and reliable, it’s the carry-on every “It” girl wants to carry to maintain her low-key chic.
Perpetual Over Packer – Tumi Alpha 2 International Expandable 4 Wheeled Carry-On
This Tumi bag is one of the most versatile on the market, ideal for both short weekend jaunts and long international journeys. It expands by two inches and comes equipped with tie-down straps and a removable garment sleeve for those special nights out on the town. With over 30 improvements and more than 14 patented and trademarked design components, it’s safe to say that Tumi continually sets the standard for exceptional luggage.
