    1. An incredibly classy hardside spinner with faux leather accents, because you don’t have to use actual vintage luggage to get that vintage travel aesthetic. The interior has two huge, lined compartments with straps to secure all your favorite wardrobe acoutrements; meanwhile, the exterior polycarbonate shell protects it all from damage.

    The suitcase in the color Champagne White

    Promising review: "Been on three trips with this bag so far: Eight flights and being checked, I'm in love! Best suitcase I've ever had (and I've had several in the past few years). The inside is lined with very soft fabric and it works great with my packing cubes plus both sides have zip up compartments which you never see, everything stays exactly where I put it, when I get to my hotel I can open it up and nothing has shifted at all! I check my bags most of the time but this is a carry on size so you can carry it on most domestic aircraft. I got the chocolate color because I don't like white very much. There are a few minor scuffs now but you can only see them if you look very closely. It doesn't tip over or forward, it's very well balanced and you can fit a backpack on top. Rolls very well." –Jessica

    Price: $179.99+ (available in three sizes, three colors, and with or without brakes)

    2. A Maxlite 5 softside expandable spinner from Travelpro that comes in a rainbow of delightful, yet understated colors. Travelpro’s luggage is designed for ~serious travelers,~ but just because you take your travel seriously doesn’t mean your luggage has to be all business and no fun. This pick has an ergonomic handle and 360-degree wheels for easy maneuverability, a lightweight and expandable design so you can pack more without going over airline luggage restrictions, and a bunch of pretty colors to choose from to keep things exciting. Dusty Rose or Azure Blue, anyone?

    The suitcase in the color Imperial Purple

    Promising review: “Giving10 stars isn’t enough – an absolutely outstanding carry-on. The fabric is super tough, extremely durable, and it’s obvious the engineer who designed this has plenty of experience in what a consumer wants: 360-degree rubber wheels that spin freely in every direction. A telescoping handle that smoothly slides in and out with ease and speed. All of the stitching is outstanding, with extra care of reinforcement on the corners. All of the zippers move freely with no snags in travel. The main zippers have eyelets for a lock if needed. The outer pocket is just the right size to drop a phone or wallet in. The first zipper pocket is plenty large enough for needed quick access things, like a tablet or notebook. The main compartment is nylon lined with a separate, front-sealing zipper for grooming needs. The main section is extremely large for the size of the bag. If you overstuff, that's not a problem either as there is a clever zipper that will expand it even further. Everything seals up nicely with confidence that it will withstand the elements of weather as well as abuse of being tossed around in a hectic lifestyle.” –Bob G

    Price: $119.97+ (available in four sizes, eight colors, and individual and set options)

    3. A classic canvas weekender with leather trim that'll never go out of style. It's not overly packed with pockets or other organizers, but reviewers still say that this pick fits a surprising amount. It's ideal for shorter trips — and if that rough-and-tumble outdoorsy look is your jam, it'll fill that role with aplomb.

    The duffel in the color Gray

    Promising review: "After seven months and numerous vacations and weekends away, this bag is going on strong. A great size for carry on luggage as its big enough to pack a ton of stuff but still fit in the overhead compartment or under your seat. The outside pickets a perfect for storing quick access stuff such as a passport or phone charger/ear buds. The small feet keep it off the ground a bit if you have to set it down on the ground/sidewalk. The shoulder strap is nice and wide so even when packed full it doesn't dig into your neck/shoulder and the rounded leather handles are comfortable when carrying. Overall an excellent weekend/carry-on bag." –John S.

    Price: $49.99 (available in six colors)

    4. A sleek hardside luggage trio, so you’ve always got what you need with you — no more, no less. Quick trip? The 20-inch carry-on will do ya. Traveling for a week or two? Check the 24-inch option. Heading off on the trip of a lifetime? Break out the 28-incher. The multi-directional spinner wheels will keep you rolling smoothly all the while — literally and metaphorically.

    The suitcase set

    Promising review: "Purchased this set for a family vacation to Yellowstone National Park. Flew to SLC with all three pieces and checked the larger two. The smallest was used as a carry-on and worked beautifully. Used the set in multiple hotels and cabins during the trip and flew back home without any problems. They roll perfectly and are easily identifiable at the luggage carousel.

    The suitcases have a zipper divider for one half that is really convenient for keeping clothes separate. We stuffed the big one full and tight and thought we would be over 50 lbs. It weighed 46. The large suitcase really can hold a lot of clothes.

    For the price these are dollar for dollar the best suitcases I believe I could have purchased." –Kyle Cottrell

    Price: $134.99+ (available in three colors)

    5. A uniquely-textured hardside spinner you’ll never have trouble identifying at the baggage carousel. This pick has a classic clamshell design, with one side of the case featuring cross straps to keep everything locked down and the other a full mesh zip closure; plus, the crosshatch design on the exterior ensures it’ll stand out in a crowd.

    The suitcase in three sizes in the color Blush Pink

    Promising review: “I'm a notorious over-packer. I rarely fly because it keeps me from bringing everything I want. Recently ordered this new carry-on to use on a vacation including flying. I managed to pack all my clothes and shoes for a 10-day trip in this suitcase! … You pack in both sides of the suitcase as it opens like a book. One side has a mesh zip flap to keep it all in, and the other has a more traditional criss-cross elastic band to keep clothes anchored. This is probably the best suitcase I have ever purchased – I bought two more, one for each teen daughter, and we were all happy with the results and had plenty of room. And yes – I still brought home plenty of clothes I never wore, since we were at the beach and spent most of our time in bathing suits!” –jmeyer

    Price: $64.75+ (available in three sizes, five colors, and individual and set options)

    6. A soft, quilted Vera Bradley weekender, because your mini-breaks deserve to be as colorful as the rest of your life. Three pockets in the mesh-lined interior help you keep your stuff organized, while the long-drop handles and shoulder strap allow you to pick up your bag and go with ease. Also, it’s machine-washable. Yes, please!

    Promising review: “Get one: your future self will thank you! I had been needing a new travel duffel (rest in peace, old no-name duffel with a broken zipper) when I saw these were on sale. I am so glad I did: I LOVE IT. It is definitely a Vera Bradley (the lining is so pretty) and has sufficient little pockets inside and out for the odds and ends every seasoned traveler knows they need to pack (and find without completely unpacking). The purple comes with a shoulder strap (a nice touch). It’s my Christmas present to me, so while I don’t plan to travel during the Covid holidays, I’ll be making those dreams come true next year with my gorgeous new VB travel bag.” –Cella

    Price: $67.11+ (available in 27 colors)

    7. An expandable hardside carry-on with a fold-out front panel, because who wants to dig through an open suitcase in the middle of an airport? This super durable option even includes a padded sleeve for laptops and tablets.


    Promising review: “Holding up nicely. I've taken this little bag to Europe and on several domestic trips. It's holding up very nicely. The wheels are good quality and the handle is durable. I am using this as a personal travel bag, but I am a flight attendant in my professional life. I wish I could use this bag for work (I have specific luggage that I must use), because I really like this bag. I do consider myself a luggage expert as I have basically been living out of suitcases and hotels for 28 years, so, please trust me when I tell you that Delsey makes a great bag. If you're considering purchasing, go ahead. You won't be disappointed.” –Wawa

    Price: $87.89+ (available in seven colors)

    8. A sleek packable duffel, so you can expand your carrying capacity in mere seconds. The bag folds and zips up into itself, making it easy to toss in a bigger suitcase when you’re on the go — and then, if you find you’ve, uh, gone a little overboard on shopping throughout your travels (been there, done that), all you need to do is unzip and unfold this little wonder, and bam! Your travel storage space has instantly increased. It’s like magic.

    Promising review: “All-around awesome bag! This bag has SO MUCH ROOM. There are side pockets upon side pockets with some hidden pockets, too. The zippers are sturdy and inlaid, which helps make the bag waterproof. I haven't tried to drown the bag yet, so I'm not sure if it's 100% without a doubt fully waterproof, but I did get caught in light rain and nothing inside the bag was damp at all, so it's at least moderately waterproof. The velcro that closes the handles together is strong, and the shoulder strap is cushioned and comfortable. I'm not a huge fan of plastic hooks, but these seem to be very good quality so they've won me over. And did I already mention that I love love LOVE all of the pockets in this thing?

    It's pretty, it has pockets everywhere, it's sturdy, it's at least mostly (if not fully) waterproof, it holds a ton of stuff, and it's very comfortable to carry around. I've gone through a lot of travel bags in my day and this is by far the best one.” –aes317

    Price: $25.99+ (available in three sizes and eight colors)

    9. A chic-yet-affordable hardside spinner that’ll give you tons of stylish bang for your buck. This Amazon Basics piece may not be as ~fancy~ as some other options out there these days, but it packs tons of storage space and organizational pockets, along with a telescoping handle, 360-degree wheels, and a TSA-compliant lock. Also, it looks cool as heck.

    The suitcase in the color Cream

    Promising review: “The perfect carry-on. This was the perfect size, super-lightweight, easy to maneuver (I loved rolling it right next to or in front of me), the perfect height for me, and super roomy. This never flipped while rolling it around even though I had another heavy bag on top of it. I used it for a five-day, four-night trip and still had room for extra clothes. That said, the trip was in Florida, so no bulky coats, but still I think for most warm places I could use this carry-on with a bag for a full week's worth of clothing. Also, this is random but the handles to lift it up are wicked comfy! I look forward to using this for years to come!” –Marisa I.

    Price: $78.42+ (available in three sizes, four colors, and individual and set options)

    10. A slick travel backpack built with technophiles in mind, because no one wants to spend a million years digging around for their phone, or laptop, or tablet, or e-reader, or… well, you get the idea. This pack's two big zippered pockets provide plenty of storage for clothing and other necessities; meanwhile, a compartment that can store laptops up to 15.6 inches in size keeps your most valuable electronic assets safe. There’s even an external USB port you can hook up your own battery pack to, so you can easily charge you phone wherever you go.

    The backpack in the color Austere Gray

    Promising review: “AWESOME backpack. This backpack is amazing for the price. The material is quality and water resistant. Zippers work well. Very spacious. I've had this backpack since May and see no signs of wear. I took it on a two-week trip to Thailand and the secret compartment was great for holding my passport and tickets. I fit a TON (two weeks’ worth) of clothes in the main pocket, a pair of [sandals] and some books in the laptop pocket, all my toiletries in the small pocket and small accessories like wallet and headphones and Chapstick with lots of room to spare. Now, I use it at college and it fits all my books/14" laptop easily. Doesn't get too heavy or uncomfortable on my back and looks great. I walk in pouring rain for a mile all the time and the insides of my bag have never gotten wet. It has lots of convenient organizational pockets so my stuff never gets lost. I never use the charger feature but it does work and I do use the key holder which is convenient. Overall a great deal for your money.” –EJBRUT

    Price: $25.99+ (available in two sizes and 10 colors)

    11. A polka-dotted, four-piece, softside rolling set, because nothing says “I have my life together” like perfectly coordinate travel accessories. This set includes three uprights in the standard 20-, 24-, and 28-inch sizes, as well as a tote with both a handle and shoulder strap – and it’s super affordable, as far as full sets go.

    The suitcase set in the color Black Dot

    Promising review: “I have had these for four years and I haven’t had a single issue yet. I’ve flown with them at least 12 times and they are still in perfect condition. The pattern is great because you can always find your bag on the luggage carousel – I’ve never seen anyone else with these bags. People ask me about them at the airport and always compliment them! I recommend them to everyone who asks about them.” –Harley

    Price: $103.91+ (available in two colors)

    12. A hardside carry-on spinner in a bold animal print, because, I mean, you're on vacation. Go big or go home, right? This 20-inch option has 360-degree wheels, a smoothly-telescoping handle, and a fun pattern both inside and out.

    The suitcase in the color Leopard

    Promising review: "I get stopped for compliments on this set regularly! I have used two pieces from this set a number of times each, and so far, I find them to be quite roomy and durable. ... The wheels are smooth, and having four of them is so convenient. The handles are nice and long. There's plenty of room for me to balance another bag on top which makes it easier to walk comfortably around the airport. On the smaller suitcase, it appeared the handle didn't go as tall as I wanted, but I gave it a good tug and it extended way further. Once it came out further, it was the perfect height for me.

    The small size is just perfect for a short trip carry-on and the large size is terrific for a longer trip check-in bag. I just took the largest one on a 28-day trip to Europe. It was perfect! I am currently on a 3-day trip to DC and it's just the right size!" –Aria

    Price: $59.99+ (available in seven colors)

    13. A sturdy rolling duffel with not one, but two huge compartments, because sometimes, a regular ol’ suitcase just won’t cut it. Reviewers say this bag’s versatility makes it a real winner, although note that the medium size has surprised folks with how big it is.

    The duffel

    Promising review: “After using the medium-size version on a three-week vacation, I now own all three sizes of this bag. So far, the materials seem very durable and easy to spot-clean. The bags easily stay upright and inline skate wheels turn on a dime. The handles are stable and easily extend and retract. But by far the best feature for all three sizes is the interior versatility – it is amazing! Each size has a double layer of zippered compartments. When both are unzipped, the entire volume of the bag is accessible to pack large or bulky items; the larger two bags can even fit several outfits still on hangers and tri-folded. But when zipped, you have two sizeable compartments to separate items, PLUS one large and two small exterior pockets. LOVE these packs and strongly recommend them.” –Steven D. Carrell

    Price: $113.50+ (available in three sizes and seven colors)

    14. A compact and refined underseat rollerboard that’ll fit in even the tightest of spaces. Money-savvy travelers swear by this pick, with numerous reviewers noting that it’s just the right size to use as a personal item on budget airlines — and unexpectedly roomy, if you’re smart about how you pack.

    Promising review: “Let us all bow down to this small-but-mighty ‘personal item’-sized roller bag. It fits LIKE A GLOVE in the Frontier sizer, all packed up, wheels and all as above. As of December 2018, the Spirit and Frontier sizers are the same size, so this would be perfect for either airline (18x14x8).

    Some highlights: The handle is sturdy and feels substantial. The pocket on the front can fit an ~11x8 tablet plus its attached keyboard comfortably. The main compartment opens into one large storage area just waiting for the packing cubes of your choosing. As other reviewers have mentioned, it does take some time to unzip/zip around the curved edges of the main compartment – easily remedied by having both zippers meet in the middle. Would have loved to have a water bottle holder.

    Bottom line: You’ll need to pour one out for our discount travel conglomerates as they won’t be able to nab your hard-earned cash to pay for carry-on bags!” –Andrea DeSimone

    Price: $58.06+ (available in three colors)

    15. A sleek and professional softside spinner that’s more than a match for everything you might throw at it. Travelpro’s Platinum Elite bags are an investment, but frequent flyers swear by the many compartments and pockets organizing the interior. There’s even a USB port and a powerbank pocket, both of which meet FAA regulations, so you can be sure your devices will always be juiced up, no matter where you are.

    The suitcase in the color Vintage Gray

    Promising review: “Beautiful bag, and definitely built for travelers. Lots of useful compartments/zippers/cinches. My first spinner bag, and it's changed my life! Easy to stack items on top, wheels appear to be sturdy. I used it on my most recent travel (half work, half visiting family), and was able to comfortably pack for a week's worth of travel, and be prepared for two completely different climates (Midwestern cold and Florida heat).

    The bottom/back does make you lose a bit of space due to where and how deep the handle storage/rack is. If you're able to fold things small and fit them in between the track, it's fine. If you have larger, non-bendable items, it can make an impact on what you can fit.” –Audrey Parks

    Price: $206+ (available in five sizes, six colors, and individual and set options)

    16. A hardside spinner in a fun and elegant pattern, so your luggage can scream “I’M ON VACATION!” just as loudly as your mouth can. Lightweight and durable, this American Tourister option has 360-degree wheels, a smoothly-telescoping handle, and the ability to expand at the flick of a zipper. All those souvenirs have to go somewhere, right?

    The suitcase in the color Ascending Gardens Rose Gold

    Promising review: “I cannot say enough about how wonderful this suitcase is! I purchased it for a 14-day trip to England that I took in September and am SO happy with how it performed. It is super lightweight, even when packed, and easy to handle. I was able to fit a wardrobe for seven days in this suitcase, including three pairs of shoes, and was able to do laundry half-way through my trip. Additionally, the bag expands quite a bit which enabled me to bring home items purchased on my trip including several yards of fabric, four skeins of yarn, clothing, and other smaller items without having to get a second bag. The suitcase did get some scuff marks on it, but I was able to easily wipe them off with a cloth when I got home. I highly recommend this suitcase!” –Kindle Customer

    Price: $70.73+ (available in three sizes, 12 colors, and individual and set options)

    17. A heavy-duty hardside spinner from Samsonite, because a little ruggedness can go a long way when it comes protecting your stuff in transit. It’s got all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a brand like Samsonite — multi-directional wheels, a telescoping handle, a super organized interior, a TSA-compliant lock, the works. And the scratch-resistent polycarbonate shell comes in both sedate neutrals and bold brights, so whether you’re looking for something that’ll blend in or stand out, this sucker's got you covered.

    The suitcase in multiple sizes in the color Caribbean Blue

    Promising review: “Perfect! Got this for a last-minute trip from Houston to Cabo. I wanted a color that would stand out, and it does! It is very lightweight and [the 20-inch spinner] fits perfectly in the carry-on sizing box for United Airlines. It swivels every which way, so you can pull it behind you, beside you, or push it. The lock is TSA approved and easy to set. It expands nicely, which, even with three days of beach clothes and books and accessories, I didn't need to do.” –Micaela

    Price: $89+ (available in three sizes, 10 colors, and individual and set options)

    18. A four-piece softside luggage set reviewers say can’t be beat for style and durability for the price. Included are 21-, 25-, and 29-inch upright rollerboards – all of which are expandable – along with a 15-inch tote. Consider it the “starter home” of luggage sets.

    The suitcase set in the color Gray

    Promising review: “Review after four years: Terrific luggage. Durable, roomy, and attention-getting.

    First off, the luggage looks very upscale; the front side is vibrantly colored, and the tightly woven fabric has good fit and finish. There are two metal zipper pulls on each compartment which is convenient; however, the zippers themselves and the pull attachments are adequate but not of superior durability. The bags are generously sized, deeper than our previous set and this allows the bags to swallow a lot more stuff yet remain portable.

    The insides are fully lined and contain straps to secure the contents. While the lining is thin and not the highest quality, it is a nice feature on a set in this price range; our previous set cost twice as much fifteen years ago and had no lining.

    Each of the pull pieces have two nicely functioning wheels and an expandable handle to let you drag the bag behind; you can even attach the duffel bag onto an extended handle via a back strap.

    Overall, this set was a terrific buy for my family's needs and should be the same for most casual travelers as well.” –James C.

    Price: $109.60+ (available in eight colors)

    19. And a colorful hardside spinner that comes in more than 30 different shades, so you can travel, but make it ~fashion~. This pick also comes in three sizes, which you can get either individually or as two- and three-piece sets. The carry-on size is far and away the most popular option, but either way, talk about versatility!

    The suitcase in the color Blue

    Promising review: “I bought this because I was flying from Ohio to the Alaska peninsula for work, would be in Alaska for 40–45 days, and I didn’t want to check any luggage. This carry-on was large enough to hold: 13 pairs of underwear, 13 pairs of socks, 6 bras, 6 pairs of blue jeans, 4 tee shirts, 3 long-sleeve shirts, a pair of sneakers, a hooded zip-up fleece safety jacket, and odds and ends of things I could stuff in the cracks. Once I boarded the plane, I was able to fit it into the overhead bin without problem, perfectly.

    The outer shell is rugged, the zippers performed as would expect a zipper to perform. While I’m not excessively rough with my belongings, I expect a product to stand up to everyday wear and tear, and I don’t baby things. This carry-on did not disappoint. During the trip and afterwards, it has been banged around, dropped repeatedly while full and empty, slid on its front across a concrete parking lot, and yes, it shows some wear, but not as much as you would expect after heavy use.

    All in all, this carry-on exceeded my expectations.” –Yvonne

    Price: $48.49+ (available in three sizes, 32 colors, and individual and set options)
