One of the most important purchases travelers make is a solid, great looking carry on luggage. In a year of some of the highest baggage fees of all time, traveling light with a carry on only is of utmost importance.
We searched our entire catalog and found the 5 best carry on luggage that cost less than $100 and fit within the major U.S. airlines’ current size restrictions, which are smaller than they used to be at 22 x 14 x 9 inches. (Southwest is one exception, with a roomier 24 x 16 x 10 maximum size.)
