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:
