I am taking my first trip overseas since the beginning of the pandemic, and I am an equal mixture of excitement and nerves. A few nights ago, I had what can only be described as a fever dream, in which my beloved carry-on bag was appropriate for domestic but not international travel. I awoke in a panic at five in the morning, and immediately ran to find my suitcase and a tape measurer. If you're anything like me, and are planning on taking a trip this summer, you need a carry-on suitcase that's designed for international travel.
International carry-on luggage is slightly smaller than luggage suitable for domestic travel, which is frustrating, but honest. Generally, international carry-on bags should be 22 x 14 x 9 inches in dimension. For comparison, a standard domestic carry-on bag can be up to 24 x 16 x 10 inches, which is a meaningful difference. If you're looking for hard luggage, a soft duffle, and everything in between, we've got you covered. There's a suitcase we love with a 90 day warranty, so if you don't like it, you can return it and get a refund.
