How to Choose the Perfect Carry-On Luggage: Size, Material, and More

Traveling can be a lot easier when you have the right carry-on luggage. But how do you choose the perfect one with so many options out there? This guide will walk you through everything you need to know about carry-on luggage and help you make an informed decision.

Understanding Carry-On Luggage 

Carry-on luggage is a smaller piece of luggage that passengers are allowed to take with them in the cabin of a plane. It’s typically stored in overhead compartments or under the seat in front of you. The benefits of having the right carry-on luggage are endless: it's accessible during flight, eliminates the risk of lost checked bags, and can save you time at baggage claim.

Carry-On Luggage Size Restrictions

Different airlines have different size restrictions for carry-on luggage. Most airlines allow carry-ons that measure up to 22 x 14 x 9 inches including handles and wheels, but it's always a good idea to check the specific requirements of the airline you're flying with.

How to Choose the Perfect Carry-On Luggage


The material of your luggage is crucial for its durability and weight. You want something lightweight for ease of handling, but also durable enough to withstand the rigors of travel. Heys offers a range of carry-on luggage made from durable materials like polycarbonate and nylon.


The size of your carry-on should be within the airline's size restrictions, yet spacious enough to fit your essentials. Heys offers carry-on luggage in sizes that comply with most airlines' restrictions, ensuring you don't have to worry about check-in issues.

Organizational Features

Look for carry-on luggage that offers compartments and pockets to help keep your belongings organized. Features like a laptop pocket, a zippered mesh pocket, or a built-in TSA lock can be very beneficial. Heys carry-on luggage options come with these features and more.
