Experts like this durable, spacious carry-on that remains stable enough to stand upright even when it’s filled. There is a strap on the outside of the bag that can be used to attach another wheeled bag. The handle is square and can be awkward to grip.

Customer Rating: 86%

Ranks 7th among competitors.

Customers like the high capacity of this bag, which feels like it can always fit 1 more thing. The wheels roll smoothly to create an easy pulling experience. This luggage runs on the larger end of carry-ons and might not fit some airlines’ requirements.

Ideal for people:

Those who want to maximize their packing space and don't mind if that means this bag will have to be checked in.

Not ideal for people:

Those flying internationally will have problems getting this luggage through as a carry on. Those who overpack and don't want to check their bag might be out of luck.

Notable Pros:
  • Can fit a lot inside
  • Wheels roll smoothly
Notable Cons:
  • Larger size may not qualify as carry-on for some airlines
