You hate them, don’t you? I know I do. Let me tell you, they are the worst, there are few things more annoying than them and I would rather not deal with them any longer, and so should you! I’m talking about big traveling suitcases, of course.
Nothing worse than having to handle two of the big ones, one with each hand when landing at the airport after a terrible flight, worse still if their wheels are messed up, absolute madness. I was looking forward to never having to do that again, and that when I found carry-on suitcases, your easy to handle solution for travel luggage and I’m here to tell you which one of them is the best to get.

#2 iFLY Fibertech Carry-on

It’s the perfect size and very lightweight. It also does not scratch! I highly recommend this to all my readers and followers!
#3 The Tiko Carry-On

#4 Samsonite Winfield 2 Fashion 20″ Spinner
Light and high quality carry on is the best friend of any traveller and probably the most important item of all travel gear. I used different cheap brands. But one day I got Samsonite carry on as a present. After 5 years of active use, 7 countries and hundreds of flights it is as sturdy as it was before. So, pay an extra dollar to receive a quality that will last.
#5 Delsey Luggage Luggage Helium Aero Int’l Carry-on Exp. Spinner Trolley
Personal Contribution: I HIGHLY recommend this carry-on suitcase — the Delsey Paris. I’ve had it for probably 3 years now and it’s my go to. I have traveled the world for my photography business from Tahiti, Australia, Brazil, Costa Rica and more with this carry on in hand.
I love that it is expandable, travel size, and protects my gear with the hard-shell. It also is really easy to roll and smooth because of its double directional wheels. It’s also super lightweight! I’ve bought so many “light weight” bags but none are as lightweight and versatile as this one. The inside has so much room and zipper compartments if you’d like to separate things out.
#6 Samsonite Omni PC Hardside 20-Inch One Size Spinner
The lightweight 20” Omni Hardside Spinner by Samsonite is my carry-on friend when traveling abroad. The retractable handle with full-zip interior, all side expansion and spinner wheels make this bag the obvious choice. As an additional sweetener, it also comes with a side-mounted TSA lock to ensure additional security while on the move.

#8 Herschel Trade Carry On, Black
Personal Contribution: I’ve been using the Herschel 22 Trade carry-on suitcase for the last year and LOVE IT! It’s a hard case carry-on that has 360 wheels. It is very sturdy and It’s been with me to over 6 countries. It comes in various colors and is $150 but comes with a lifetime warranty.
My boyfriend has a $38 amazon branded suitcase that he has been using for over a year and it’s starting to break.
