Our test covers suitcases designed as carry-on or cabin luggage, as well as larger sized suitcases for check-in. Remember, you'll still need to check individual requirements with your airline. We test soft and hard suitcases in both 2- and 4-wheel configurations.
Our expert testers give every suitcase a thorough workout to find the models that:
- survive our tough lift-and-drop test
- get through our rolling rig test unscathed
- are the most water resistant and durable
- are easiest to wheel around different surfaces.
Our interactive comparison tool helps you navigate our results. Our recommended list will help you see quickly which models came out on top in performance and ease of use.
