If you're looking for a reason to not check luggage and go carry-on only, here's one: My friend's holiday flight to France was canceled due to bad weather, but her luggage went to Amsterdam and Nice anyway. She waited a week for it to be returned to her.
Here's another reason: Briggs & Riley Travelware's smart 20-inch upright carry-on. At just 8.7 lbs., and 20 x 14 x 8.5 in. (50.8 x 35.6 x 21.6 cm), it's easy to maneuver and fits in the overhead compartment. Some other facts: The bag is made with Briggs & Riley's exclusive Tuff-lite fabric, offering strength as well as abrasion resistance. The company's "The Outsider" handle system means that the bars are on the outside, ensuring flat packing inside. And if anything goes wrong -- even airline damage -- you're covered with the "Simple as that" lifetime warranty. FoxNews.com even named the bag in its "Top Five Coolest Pieces of Luggage" as the "Best All-Purpose Carry-On."
Available in Desert, Silver, Rainforest, and Sunset (shown). $235.00
