Unlike checking an over-sized suitcase, a carry on bag ensures your packing is always streamlined and more importantly, allows you to zip straight in and out airports undeterred.

The bag you carry also creates a strong first impression on your fellow travelers; the people you seem to always randomly run into at the air terminal; the hotel staff; and even the private jet crew. That’s right, your little carry on is a small glimpse into your lifestyle.
