I am having a nightmare of a time trying to find carry-on suitcase. I am going on two trips — Isle of Wight for five days and then Italy for seven days — so I need something small enough for a carry-on, that can store a lot.
What carry-on do you use?
Many thanks. -Pauline
As I’ve shared before, this is my go-to carry-on. But it’s more of a hand bag than a suitcase, and I’m currently also in the market for a carry-on suitcase. So I’ve rounded up some of my faves, and then I’d love to hear your suggestions as well!
These two were touted as the best in this impressively comprehensive article…

Smarter than your average carry-on
The Genius Packer charges your phones, organizes all your cords, has a secret spy umbrella, AND does this cool air compressed laundry storage thing!
This one started at Indiegogo, now we here…
The Bluesmart Carry-on is the first suitcase to connect wirelessly to your smartphone so you can keep your belongings charged, tracked, locked, and underweight. Our charging dock, with two USB ports, lets you power your phone up to six times so you never have to crowd around an airport outlet again. A built-in tracker lets you know where your bag is, anywhere in the world, for free. The scale is conveniently built into the handle so you can just pick it up and it’ll tell the app how much it weighs. You can also remotely lock the bag or set it to auto-lock if you get separated from it
This one comes in a variety of colors, is travel-tested, and light-weight so that you can pack it full and not need help putting it in an overhead bin.
I love my bright orange bag — it’s small enough to be a carry-on, but it’s bright enough that I can see it coming from a mile away when I have to expand it and check it on my return trips home.
What are your favorite carry-ons?
