In a quandary about which brand of carry-on luggage to splurge on? Unsure of whether to pick a hard-sided or soft-sided suitcase or go with the ever-popular rolling bag? Picking the perfect carry-on luggage that will not only be functional but can stand the test of time takes a lot of research, but fortunately U.S. News & World Report have taken the hard work out of it.
U.S. News & World Report waded through the myriad of carry-on luggage options to compile a list of the “The Best Carry-On Luggage for 2022” – and we couldn’t be happier that they also included a “Best Affordable Carry-On Luggage” category too!
“U.S. News compiled this list of the best carry-on luggage based on recommendations of travel experts and consumers,” U.S. News & World Report said of the list. “The list includes everything from affordable carry-ons to luxury carry-on luggage, along with rolling bag options for weekend getaways and adventure trips.”
“Your carry-on bag needs to meet the needs of how you travel,” U.S. News & World Report reveals. “Whether you travel for work, go on family vacations or escape for romantic weekend getaways, your carry-on should be suited for the types of clothing you need. For example, if you tend to dress up for work or fine dining, you may want luggage with a built-in garment bag, whereas if you are an adventure traveler, perhaps a rolling bag will best accommodate your gear.”
