Most flights allow their travellers to carry a cabin bag and a personal item for free. Because there are restrictions to the size and weight allowed, it is important to buy a carry-on that not only fits but is lightweight.
What’s your pick?
There are many varieties of carry-ons and it is important to purchase the one unique to one’s needs. An under-seat cabin holdall is good for keeping all the stuff for a mini vacation. Strong carry handles and adjustable shoulder straps are a must. A classic suitcase works well for formal use. Spinner wheels with 360 degrees rotation producing zero sound are desired. Sturdy retractable handles are also a requisite.
Executive pilot cases with a filing section and large compartments are ideal for flight crew, doctors etc. The versatile and spacious cases in the structure hold different things neatly without compromising on a compact look and feel. A luggage backpack is always an ‘in’ when it comes easy travelling. One with roomy compartments and a padded rear for support is an ideal choice for a casual journey. Depending on the type and features, carry-ons range from £ 15 to 150.
Things to remember
No matter what your pick, some features can’t be compromised on with carry-ons. Durability is pivotal as travelling can be a frequent affair. Bags made of PVC are strong and can be water and fire-resistant. Suitcases with hardshell are shock sensitive and durable, and those made of PC and ABS materials are unbreakable. Having a lock is unavoidable since security while travel is doubly important. Carry-ons come with three-digit combinations, barrel padlock, TSA locks etc.
As a style statement
A carry-on doesn’t just have to be a ‘luggage’ when it comes in all colours and patterns. Pick a red hot suitcase to flaunt your assertiveness or a floral backpack to indicate your amiability. Or go with the good old black that is always chic.
