 Carry On Luggage 

Carry on luggage comes in all shapes and sizes, wheeled and non wheeled. The following sections look at each style in detail.



Wheeled Cabin Suitcase / Rollaboard / Cabin Roller



Perhaps the most popular carry on luggage style is a small wheeled suitcase. Todays shape and style owe's its design to Travelpro who originally came up with the "Rollaboard", the difference to other on board luggage at the time was the upright shape and the positioning of the wheel on the 2 bottom outer edges. Other brands such as Samsonite and Antler soon adopted this shape and style and now virtually every wheeled carry on suitcase is this shape. Some brands such as Victorinox have done away with the double tubing trolley and replaced it with a monopole trolley or single stem. Apart from this the design remains largely unchanged from its original.


Key benefits of this type of luggage:

  • Usually strong - choosing a well known brand will ensure this.
  • Stable and easy to manouvre
  • Protects contents and minimizes creases and wrinkles to your clothes
  • Usually have an exterior pocket, useful for travel documents, magazines etc.
  • Matching - most cabin suitcases have a matching large or medium counterpart
  • Top and/or side handles - making it easier to lift your baggage into the overhead locker

Carry On Wheeled Duffel

A wheeled carry on duffle's are a relatively recent luggage trend, they are usually lighter than a small suitcase because they only have a frame at the back rather than sides as well. The can also be squished a little making it easier to fit them in the overhead locker this also makes them easier to store at home or in your hotel. The other advantage is that they have a narrow wheel base making it easier to wheel them down the narrow gangways on board the plane.
