Top Performers in Good Houskeeping’s Carry-On Testing

For over 100 years the fine people at the Good Housekeeping Research Institute (GHRI) have labored to help consumers by testing and recommending products ranging from food, to electronics, to pet products, and everything in between. The reputation they have gained has made the Good Housekeeping name one of the most trusted and recognized in the world. A recent test conducted by the GHRI was of particular interest to us at Luggage Pros. The test was done on 24 of the newest carry-on luggage bags, and the results were very interesting. The testing was based on roominess, size, weight, durability, water repellency, and a series of evaluations of performance and comfort. A complete, detailed description of the testing process can be found here. The following are five of the top performers in the GHRI testing of carry-on luggage:


Briggs & Riley Transcend 20″ Carry-On Upright

GHRI Test and Evaluation

Always one of the leaders in quality, Briggs created this little beauty, which is perfect for a weekend getaway. GHRI testing showed its toughness and ease of handling.

Samsonite DkX 21″ Expandable Spinner

GHRI Test and Evaluation

A long trusted name in the luggage industry, Samsonite made an impression with the mobility and stability of this model.


High Sierra ATGO Carry-On Wheeled Backpack with Removable Day Pack

GHRI Test and Evaluation

The two-for-one versatility of this piece was a winner for High Sierra. It ranked high in comfort and durability.


Delsey Helium Zip Carry-on Suiter Trolley

GHRI Test and Evaluation

This hardside bag by Delsey was the top performer of the hardside bags tested. The ease of access and impressive toughness resulted in high praise for this lightweight gem, not to mention the very consumer friendly price point.


Kipling Madison 22″ Wheeled Duffel

GHRI Test and Evaluation

Roominess made this Kipling duffel a hit, as well as the high durability factor.


Buying a new carry-on bag can be a big decision, but with the help of Good Housekeeping, making a choice can be a little less difficult!
