Ninetygo’s 20-inch-tall carry-on is one of the nicest pieces of luggage on the list. It’s lightweight, durable, and features a soft, waterproof nylon fabric on the front. The shell is constructed of a three-layer, scratch-resistant Makrolon polycarbonate. The bag comes with two compartments—one on the front, perfect for easy-access items like your laptop, and a 36-liter main clothing compartment. It’s got four spinning wheels on the bottom that make it easy to maneuver around the airport and a four-level, height-adjustable ergonomic handle. For added safety, this TSA-compliant bag has an attached combination lock. It also comes with a five-year warranty. They’ve got a great full hard-shell model as well.
