Traveling is one of life’s greatest joys. Taking to the open road, spending time somewhere new, visiting a historic site, or finally experiencing an attraction you’ve wanted to see for years is something you’ll remember forever. Of course, leaving something behind can easily throw a wrench in all that excitement. One minute you’re whipping out your smartphone to snap a few pictures, the next you’re cursing yourself for forgetting your charger. Make sure you’re ready for anything with the right carry-on bag. Sized just right for all the essentials, these bags are as practical and functional as they are stylish and timeless. Here are our picks for your upcoming spring vacation.

Monos Carry-On Pro

Building on the success of the company’s original carry-on, the Monos Carry-On Pro exudes the type of contemporary vibe any modern traveler appreciates. It’s designed to hold everything from your 15” laptop to your clothes, and slides smoothly into the overhead bin on virtually any airline. The shell is unbreakable, so no matter how much strain it undergoes you can count on it to last.


Away The Bigger Carry-On Flex

Don’t you despise filling up your bag — only to find that there’s no room left? If that’s a common scenario that causes you to dread packing, the only answer is Away The Bigger Carry-On Flex. This incredible bag expands to unearth an extra 2.25” of much-needed space. Fully flexed, it provides the wiggle room you need for that extra change of clothes or any essential you forgot you needed.


July Carry-On Light

Just shy of four pounds, the July Carry-On Light totally lives up to its name in every way. The light-as-air feel alone makes it a great choice for the avid traveler who can’t deal with lugging heavy loads through the airport or train station. Double wheels glide smoothly, while sturdy handles provide the grip you need to stay steady. For an extra fee, you can even personalize it.


CALPAK Hue Carry-On Luggage

Sturdier than the average carry-on, the CALPAK Hue Carry-On Luggage checks every box, especially if you’re in the market for a no-fuss, no-frills bag that simply gets the job done. With its highly durable shell and TSA-approved lock, it will keep everything inside completely secure. Plus, it expands up to two inches to give you the added room needed for those last-minute musts.


Rimowa Essential Cabin

Hints of old-school style coupled with modern details set the Rimowa Essential Cabin apart from other carry-on bags. This German-made travel accessory is a dream from top to bottom. Not only is it available in a slew of unique colors, but it makes organization a breeze thanks to its height-adjustable flex divider inside. This is technical design at its very best.


ROAM The Jaunt Carry-On

Get your hands on ROAM The Jaunt Carry-On if you’re in the market for a sensible bag that promises endless durability and classic style. Frequent travelers will appreciate its clean lines, solid polycarbonate shell, telescopic handle with four height settings, and TSA-approved lock. The zipper repels moisture, too, so you don’t have to worry about damage over time.


Victorinox Spectra 3.0 Frequent Flyer Carry-On

Weekend warriors, meet your new forever companion. The Victorinox Spectra 3.0 Frequent Flyer Carry-On is so practically styled, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Crafted with SORPLAS™, a high performance recycled polycarbonate, not only is this carry-on sleek, it’s also made with the environment in mind. The expansion system offers up to 20% additional capacity so you can fit everything you need.


Solgaard Carry-On Closet

Here’s the bag you really didn’t know you needed. The Solgaard Carry-On Closet could even be the real-life bag of your dreams. It’s cleverly designed with an interior “shelving unit” that pulls out to reveal six shelves and a USB charging port. The shelves compress what you put inside, so you can carry more without taking up tons of room. The soft-grip handle makes for a comfortable carrying experience.


Paravel Aviator Carry-On

Eco-friendly travel has never looked so good. The Paravel Aviator Carry-On is made with a recycled polycarbonate exterior, recycled zippers, vegan leather accents, wrapped steel, and even a lining constructed of 15 upcycled water bottles. The big bonus? They only partner with vendors that support equally sustainable efforts, so they can offset the carbon emissions through every facet of sourcing, creating, and shipping the bag to you.
