Choosing which type of carry on luggage can be daunting. To help narrow your buying decision, we’re bringing you the pros and cons for the 4 most common types of cabin luggage for business travel. We’ve also listed a best in class option for each type at two price points: affordable and luxurious.
– Lighter than most traditional luggage option with more storage
– May reduce your chances of having to check your carry on (easier to manoeuvre in an overhead compartment)
– Much harder to carry (unless it has a rolling attachment)
– Lack of structure creates wrinkles in clothing
Affordable Option: Samsonite Rewind Duffle Bag 55cm
– Most airport-friendly and easiest to transport long distances
– Well-structured and easy to pack
– May need to be checked if cabin space is scarce
– Carrying on rough terrain or up stairs may be difficult
Affordable Option: IT Luggage World’s Lightest Small 4 Wheel Suitcase
Luxurious Option: Rimowa Topas Four-Wheel Cabin Suitcase
– Easy to fit under the seat or in overhead compartments
– Easy to carry upstairs and through rough terrain and weather
– May put strain on your back and shoulders and cause you to sweat in hot weather
– Business geared bags don’t fit a lot of stuff outside of electronics, so you may need to use in combination with another option on this list
Affordable Option: Osprey Fairview and Farpoint Backpacks
Luxurious Option: The Cambridge Satchel Company Bridge Closure Backpack in Leather
– Perfect for quick trips as it’s light and easy to fit under the seat or in the overhead compartment
– Can be used in combination with duffles for a simple luggage solution (just place on top)
– Not large enough for a standalone solution (won’t fit your clothing)
– Carrying on rough terrain or upstairs may be difficult with rolling types
Affordable Option: Barbour Wax Leather Tarras Bag
Luxurious Option: Aspinal of London The Anderson Large Messenger Bag
