There’s only so much you can research online, so next step is getting myself to an Outdoor Adventure Travel store.
I didn’t include the Tom Bihn Aeronaut 45L in the running. I’m a fan but with a whopping price of
$250.00 $300.00 (2020), it was just too much out of my price range… especially wanting to invest into accessories such as: (affiliate link) Eagle Creek Pack-It Specter Cube Set (XS, S, M).
Q: Which carry-on is your favorite or do you travel with on both long and/or short trips? Comment below.
