Editor’s Pick

Samsonite

Samsonite Freeform Carry-On Spinner

Samsonite specializes in luggage that’s both durable and innovative, at prices that won’t blow your travel budget. The brand’s hardside and softside suitcases feature crisp wheels for smooth toting and comfortable handles that easily pull out and retract. Most designs also feature interior pockets and dividers for organization, including the softside Bartlett Carry-On Spinner and Detour Wheeled Duffel.

Samsonite’s Freeform Spinner, a favorite of Forbes Vetted’s senior deals editor Kara Cuzzone, is an excellent place to start if you’re thinking of revamping your luggage setup. Featured as the top pick on our list of the Best Carry-On Luggage, the affordably priced hardside suitcase has a TSA-approved lock, a built-in ID tag and a modern palette of color options to pick from.

Thanks to its unbreakable polycarbonate shell, you won’t have to worry about scuffing the beautiful design when you tote Monos’ great selection of suitcases to your final destination. Forbes Vetted updates writer Francesca Sales recommends the Carry-On Pro, which is featured as the top pick on our list of the Best Hardside Luggage. It features TSA-approved locks, quiet wheels, vegan leather accents and a built-in front compartment for easy access to your essentials. The Carry-On Pro is outfitted with room for a src5-inch laptop, and yet it still fits in the overhead bin of almost any flight in the world. For longer trips, the Check-In Medium offers more space without feeling too bulky.

While many luggage brands offer suitcases in familiar muted colors, we appreciate Monos’ commitment to keeping things fresh with fun hues like Banana Pudding, Purple Icing and Terracotta.

Briggs & Riley

Briggs & Riley Essential 22-inch Carry-On Expandable SpinnerA top pick in our Best Carry-On Luggage story, Briggs & Riley is known for its durability, reliability and excellent warranties on luggage. If you’re looking for a classic softshell bag, this brand has consistently been named a favorite of flight attendants, pilots and traveling professionals. With a spring-loaded handle, flat interior and built-in compartment configuration, every feature of a Briggs & Riley suitcase is carefully thought out to mak
