I have previously talked about the best under seat carry ons, and they really are the best, but today I want to talk about the best carry on suit case. It can be hard to find a rolling bag that is the right size for all of the different sized overhead space but that can also hold all of your stuff! I have gone through a lot of suitcases. Zippers have ripped, handles have broken and there have been tears. Especially when it happens mid trip or even in the airport. I am sure I was hilarious to watch the last time my suitcase handle broke and I was creatively trying to get my luggage onto the plane.
After the last suitcase disaster, I was gifted this wonderful Kirkland 21″ Spinner suitcase that my dad had purchased from Costco. It was too small for him to use because his suits didn’t fit in it. But it turns out, it is perfect for me!
This suitcase is following the new trend of having four rotating wheels, which is the best thing ever! There is a huge difference in traveling when you can push your suitcase instead of pulling it. I don’t have any of the strain on my back and I can catch it when something falls off!
I love that this bag has two big sections for me to put all of my stuff in. One side zips shut and the other side can be fastened into position. This is huge when you don’t check your bags! I can fit so much more stuff into my bag without even having to open the expansion zipper! I am a huge proponent of packing my suitcase so full that I have to sit on it to zip it shut. I have never had to do that with this suitcase!
All of the extra pockets in this suitcase are a lifesaver! I love that I can tuck things into these pockets and not worry about them being damaged.
Sadly this suitcase is sold out at Costco.com but is on Ebay but it may also be at your local Costco ($100 but totally worth it!). This Samsonite bag would work too:
Here are some other really good options:
