Advantages of carry-on luggage, suitcases and bags.
There’s something about keeping your luggage in sight that makes carry-on luggage so appealing. You don’t have to wait for a checked bag once you arrive at your destination, plus a small suitcase and lightweight luggage is easier to travel with throughout your adventure. You can also save on checked luggage fees, which can add up especially if you’re traveling with the whole family. If you do find yourself needing to check a bag, though, a smart tracker tag uses Bluetooth technology so you can easily track your luggage and find your belongings quickly.
Best Buy offers both hardside carry-on and softside carry-on suitcases, so you can find the best carry-on bag for your travels. Hardside carry-on luggage has a tough outer shell that protects your belongings. A softer suitcase is a great option for under-seat luggage because it’s made from softer materials that are easy to store underneath an airplane seat.
Smaller travel bags can sit right on top of your carry-on, thanks to spinner suitcases; the wheels of your carry-on stay on the ground without having to tilt or angle your suitcase as you walk, meaning an extra bag can sit safely atop your carry-on suitcase as you walk through the airport.
Carry-on luggage size and travel tips.
You should be sure to review the specific carry-on dimensions provided by the airline you’re flying with. For domestic flights, the standard maximum size for a carry-on bag is 22” x 14” x 9” (including the handle and wheels), and carry-on luggage weight restrictions typically vary between 15 and 35 pounds. The small suitcase size of carry-on luggage means you need to get strategic about packing. One of our favorite travel tips takes a lesson from Marie Kondo: Use the KonMari method to simplify suitcase packing. For example, pack your clothes vertically to save space, use packing organization items, and try small pouches to keep smaller items contained. If you’re storing your carry-on suitcase overhead, make sure you grab your tablet, noise-cancelling headphones and any other travel accessories you need during the flight.
