Travel around the world no sweat with a selection of carry-on bags that will make your flight a breeze.
Carry-on luggage that fits more
We know you're packing for adventure, so we gave you the space to do that! Other luggage brands might be focused on bells and whistles, but we got down to the nitty gritty: room for your stuff. Our duffel bag style bags can hold plenty of extra stuff, from a garment bag to your parka to your hiking shoes, plus more. Whether you pack neatly with packing cubes, or you're more of a "stuff and sit" kind of packer, you'll be able to fit all you need into one bag this time. Exterior pockets even offer easy mid-flight accessibility to small items like snacks or chargers.
The best carry-on bags for long and short trips
Our softside duffels and totes offer more freeform than the polycarbonate shell of a hardside spinner. If you need to squish your bag onto a luggage rack or jostle everything around to fit one more souvenir, you can do it. Go ahead and pack that extra sweatshirt. There's space! There are no bulky spinner wheels to take up your precious size allowance. Every inch is dedicated to packable space. When it's time to go, compression straps keep things neatly in place to stop mid-flight shifting. Your bag will be just as comfortable to carry when you land and when you took off. Just grab a laptop bag for your personal item and you're ready to go.
Keep your carry-on suitcase for years of travel
Every travel pro knows that the best piece of luggage is one you can depend on for years. That's why durability is one of our top priorities. We've gone over our Base Camp Duffel series to make sure everything's ready for the trip of a lifetime. From reinforced grab handles to extra-strong stitching, these bags are ready to go through it all with you. They even have the limited lifetime warranty to prove it. Grab your bag and take it from check in to checkout, no worries.
Carry-On Luggage FAQs
How big can carry-on luggage be? What is the maximum size for carry-on luggage?
The maximum size allowed for your carry-on suitcase varies by airline. Make sure to check the guidelines for the airline you're using for every leg of your journey. Some bag requirements are measured in "linear inches," which means the size limit is based on the sum total of your bag's length + width + height. If your bag doesn't fit the size requirements, you may be required to check in your luggage at the gate.
What is the standard size for carry on luggage?
The standard carry-on size is 22" x 14" x 9" for domestic US travel. Major airlines like American, United, and Delta use these measurements, though not all major domestic airlines do and they are subject to change. International flights or travel in other countries may have different requirements. Check with the airline(s) you will be flying with for more specific information.
How do you measure carry on luggage?
Pack your bag as it's going to be packed for the trip. (If you're taking hard-shell or hardside luggage, you can measure the case while it's empty.) Set your bag on a flat surface. Measure from the bottom of the bag to the top, from one side to the other, and from the back to the front. Include the wheels and handle in your measurement. These are your three measurements that you can check against your airline's size requirements.
Do wheels count in carry on luggage size?
Yes, the wheels and handle are both included when measuring the size of your luggage.
Is there a weight limit for carry-on luggage?
Some airlines impose a weight restriction on carry-on luggage while others don't. The weight limit can range from 15.4 lbs/7 kg to 51 lbs/23 kg.
What is considered carry on luggage?
Carry-on luggage is luggage that fits within your airline's size limits and it goes with you onto the plane. During flight, it's stored in the overhead bin, as opposed to an underseat personal item, like a backpack.
