    Help picking a carry on bag



    I just bought a weekender in navy canvas that I really like. The size is 3000. But I also want to get something I can take on a plane. Any suggestions? Preferably no totes and something that will go in color with the weekender.

          I just got their messenger bag, and it's gorgeous.


          Edit: oops, didn't see the navy option. Still stand by what I said!

            Well I originally wanted Khaki...khaki and navy kind of go together right? Maybe? Sorta?

              Second DrBenji. I have the Carry On Explorer Duffel and *literally* could be happier. Amazing

                I have a Wood and Faulk (http://woodandfaulk.bigcartel.com/category/bags) I bought earlier this fall. It's awesome and some of them should fit on a plane as a carry on bag. They have different types of material and a few colors to choose from.

                  @cforsyth I really like the navy one here. This may be a winner for me. Still want other opionions. Maybe can find something similiar in under the $100 range.

                      Any interest in a backpack, or only a messenger/duffle type bag?


                      I was just shopping for large carry on sized bags for my vacation.


                      My suggestion: - cheaper, lifetime warranty, but a bit smaller (20x12 instead of 22x14). Also has backpack straps if you want to carry it that way. It's actually quite small - don't let the picture fool you.

                      Briggs & Riley BRX 20 - $155


                      The most popular and classiest (but most expensive) are these two:

                      Tom Bihn Aeronaut - $250

                      Red Oxx Air Boss - $225


                      Another popular option for travelers, also a bit smaller:

                      Patagonia MLC - $150ish


                      Some other more backpacky type options that are front-loading:

                      Osprey Porter 46 - $80 w/ coupon

                      REI Vagabond 40L - $150

                      eBags Motherlode. Ugly as hell though. - $80

                        I have a beautiful leather Floto Luggage Venezia Duffle which is perhaps the most complimented item in my closet (or atleast, the most complimented the one time I used it). I haven't used it since and have contemplated letting it go for a while so let me know if any of you fellows are interested.

                          This has my recommendation, too. MLC stands for Maximum Legal Carry-on, which means you technically can't bring anything bigger on board with you. If you're looking for a bag you could take on a business trip or backpacking excursion, this is the one. Fits way more than you think, if you're a savvy packer.

                            The MLC is the best bag I've ever bought. It seems like no matter what I set out to pack, it manages to fit. My best was a two week business trip in January that included two weeks in sub-Saharan Africa and a week in northern Europe -- not much overlap in terms of weather but it somehow all popped right in there. Don't get the wheeled version -- it's heavier and smaller. And their customer service is so fantastic that on the miniscule chance something goes wrong they will take care of you.
