Best International Carry on Luggage 2013

The 20-inch version of the Victorinox Avolve Expandable bag works for European airlines, many of which have a shorter height restriction of 21.6″, and won’t allow a centimeter more. It expands an extra 1.5 inches and has a laptop pocket that can fit up to a 17-inch laptop. Compare the price at Amazon >>

Best Light Carry On

A Travelpro 20-inch bag will have no problem fitting into overhead compartments, domestic or international. Travelpro is the brand that many airline pilots and flight attendants use themselves.

The full-length lid pocket is handy for shirts. The Travelpro Maxlite Expandable bags expand an extra 1.5 inches to accommodates last-minute items. The inline skate wheels provide a smooth roll. (The spinner, bottom, left, has a different kind of wheels.)

These suitcases are available in Ocean Blue (shown) or Black.

One reviewer sums it up nicely, calling it the “Ultimate lightweight rollaboard for frequent baggage-check-avoiding travelers.”
