The Best Carry-On Luggage
Usually, standing out while traveling isn't a good thing, but these 17 carry-on bags might just be the exception. Delivering durability, maneuverability, and above all, style, these statement-making options will get you all the right kind of looks on the road. Bon voyage!
Leave it to a pair of former Warby Park execs to design a suitcase that revolutionizes the way we pack. Away’s The Carry On has two compartments, one for clothes, the other for shoes, toiletries, and other hard objects; a built-in battery so you can charge your smartphone on the go; a nylon laundry bag to separate your clean and dirty threads; a TSA-approved lock; and an impenetrable, scratch-resistant shell.
If you combined Siri with a suitcase, you’d get Raden, a tech-friendly carry-on with serious style. This beaut comes equipped with Bluetooth GPS trackers, a slick security system, and a built-in battery with two USB ports to charge your gear on the go. It also syncs with an accompany iOS app, which alerts you about weather conditions, TSA wait times, flight schedules changes, and traffic en route to the airport. Bonus: It can even call you an Uber.
Billykirk No. 167 Large Caryall
This durable option is crafted from the finest leathers and canvas, and is large enough to fit all your weekend essentials. And because of its timeless shape and classic design, it’ll be fashionable for years to come.
Samsonite Freeform 21 Inch Carry on Spinner
This eye-catching spinner offers a winning balance of features, durability, and price. For $140, it has double wheels that spin like a dream, a TSA-approved lock, a built-in ID tag, and cross ribbon and dividers for easy packing.
Cuyana Weekender Bag
The founders of SF-based handbag and apparel company Cuyana spent two years traveling the world and visiting small workshops to learn the ropes of high-quality, craftsmanship-driven manufacturing—just one of the many reasons it’s a Jetsetter Editor favorite. The brand’s Weekender Bag has a durable cotton canvas exterior, reinforced leather handles and smooth bi-directional zippers, so it’s seriously built to last.
Arlo Skye The Carry-On
Founded in 2016 by a pair of former Louis Vuitton and Tumi execs, Arlo Skye is the luggage choice of fashion editors and the international jet set. The Carry-On is built from scratch-resistant aluminum with Florentine leather handles and trim, and clamps shut with two TSA-approved locks (no pesky zipper!). Other noteworthy features include two USB ports, a built-in toiletry bag, and stink-proof sleeves constructed from an anti-microbial material.
Filson Medium Duffel Bag
Rust-proof hardware, a reinforced bottom, and sturdy leather trim elevates this rough-and-ready duffel bag, whose handsome exterior makes it the perfect companion for the style savvy traveler.
Rimowa’s Salsa Air doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of the other carry-ons on this list, but from a design and durability standpoint, it’s a winner. Built from durable Keprotec and reinforced with Kevlar, the stylish spinner is surprisingly lightweight.
Kennedy Duffel Olive
This casual olive-colored duffel is as perfect for a weekend away as it is for commuting to work or hitting the gym. Thoughtful details like a water-resistant nylon lining and handles accented with rich black leather take its design to the next level.
This is Ground Voyager Classic
The Voyager Classic is an investment-worthy bag if we’ve ever seen one. As the world's first WiFi enabled leather bag, it comes optionally equipped with a pocket-sized Karma Go WiFi modem that allows you to stay connected anywhere in the U.S. We also dig ints wide mouth front compartment, which makes it easy to access essentials like your phone and passport.
This is Ground Roundtrip Duffel
Fashion-conscious travelers will want to pack their essentials in this minimalist leather duffel from Los Angeles-based brand This is Ground. And while the bag isn't cheap, it’s the kind of piece that only gets more beautiful with age.
Cuyana Oversized Carryall
The Cuyana Oversized Carryall is a great option for the business traveler. Its classic shape, smooth leather composition, and elegant gold hardware give it the feel of a luxury handbag, while also being roomy enough to store a laptop and other boardroom essentials.
This innovative spinner looks and feels like it’s from the future. Its most attention-grabbing feature? Two large axle-less wheels designed for easy handling, even on city pavement and in snow. But that’s not all. It also has two USB ports for charging, a front pocket built for your laptop, a built-in stand for supporting your tablet, and a GPS tracker (sold separately).
Briggs and Riley Kinzie Street
If you’re been towing around your college-era duffel for years and are in need of an upgrade, consider this sleek overnight bag from Briggs and Riley. It’s made from Tartex, a fabric that provides durability and moisture resistance, and features tons of compartments for effortless organization.
Briggs and Riley Baseline Duffel
Barracuda Smart Collapsible
This carry-on is like nothing you’ve ever seen. Crowd-funded on Kickstarter, the carry-on has a built-in, fold-out laptop tray, a USB charger, and a distinctive 360° rotating handle, so you’ll never have to strain your wrist to keep your bag on course. But what truly makes Barracuda so special is its completely collapsible frame, which allows for easy storage when you’re not traveling.
