Five carry-ons we highly recommend

17 Sep 2014 by Clement Huang

TEGRA-LITE

BRAND Tumi

DIMENSIONS (H x W x D) 22’ x 15.75’ x 9’

MATERIAL Hardside

RETAIL PRICE US$595

WHY WE RECOMMEND IT This unassuming carry-on is super strong…literally. After all, it’s made from a polypropylene thermoplastic composite material that is commonly used for lifesaving armour and NASCAR race cars. This means that it’s also super light. Perfect for you to maximise weight efficiently, and bring it along for your travels!

BUSINESS MULTIWHEEL

BRAND Rimowa

DIMENSIONS (H x W x D) 16.1’ x 15.9’ x 8.5’

MATERIAL Polycarbonate

RETAIL PRICE US$595

WHY WE RECOMMEND IT This is the perfect companion for any business traveller. With a dedicated notebook section attached to the main body of the carry on, getting your laptop out of the luggage will always be easy. In addition, the use of multiple partitions provide users with the structure and cohesion to pack their items neatly.

HYPERSPACE XLT

BRAND Samsonite

DIMENSIONS (H x W x D) 21.5’ x 14.75’ x 8’

MATERIAL Nylon and Ripstop Polyester

RETAIL PRICE US$189.99 (currently available on sale at US$106.99)

WHY WE RECOMMEND IT We absolutely love the “spinner wheels”. These allow for 360-degree mobility, meaning that lugging the fully packed carry-on during your trips won’t strain your arms. Plus, the anodized aluminium pull handles are cool to touch and offer resistance to wear and corrosion!
