Carry on rolling luggage is becoming a preferred choice for travelers, with many airlines charging for checked bags. When preparing to travel, keep in mind that airplane carry on bags must meet certain size requirements and these do vary among the individual airlines. Therefore be sure to check with the carrier you are flying with before heading to the airport.
Many types of bags fit the "carry on" size profile, including garment bags, duffels and tote bags. The best pieces will be easy to handle and small enough for the overhead compartment. The size should match your travel needs. Carry on cases are perfect for the one-to-two day trip. Size of the wheeled uprights is usually a maximum of 45 linear inches (the total of length plus width plus height of a bag). According to the TSA, a typical bag is 22 x 14 x 9 inches.
