Best Carry On Garment Bag Types: Which One Do You Prefer?

We collected and reviewed the best carry on garment bag types to help you choose the perfect suit bag for you.

This Travelpro luggage is one of the best rolling carry on garment bags. It’s made of high-quality material, lightweight and ample, and comes with a limited Lifetime Coverage plus trusted companion promise, which covers the cost of repair for damage from airline or other common carriers for 1 year.

Pros

  • High-quality
  • Lightweight
  • Can be used as a carry on
  • Great warranty construction

Cons

  • No cons with this one

Due to the fact that this garment bag is made of a high-quality fabric and covered by a stain-resistant, water-repellent coating, this bag can be your travel mate for a long time. Besides the bag is durable, it completely keeps your clothes wrinkle-free and intact.

The exterior dimensions are 16 x 22 x 8,5 inches and the internal dimensions are 14 x 21.75 x 8.5 inches, which means this bag can be used as a carry on. The bag is designed to meet all the carry on restrictions, so you can travel with an ease of mind.

The bag weighs 8.3 lbs, which means, it is still light, but it’s not the lightest bag on the market. But, as long as you can roll the bag, the weight hardly matters.

Unlike the Briggs & Riley Baseline Domestic Expandable Carry-On U122Cx-4 type of suitcase, which is very similar to this one, this garment bag has a removable compartment specially designed for suits and dresses.

Pros

  • Removable garment compartment
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Outstanding quality

Cons

  • Pricey

Unlike the Briggs & Riley Baseline Domestic Expandable Carry-On U122Cx-4 type of suitcase, which is very similar to this one, this garment bag has a removable compartment specially designed for suits and dresses. Unfortunately, this suitcase is not expandable, so I’m afraid you have to choose between the expandable version and the non-expandable, but more garment friendly version.

This suitcase garment bag can be used as a carry on. Although the dimensions are slightly different from what the manufacturer says, it will fit in the carry on sizer if you push it a little bit and if you do not pack the external pocket full. (The details of the dimension are below.)

Material
This bag is available in black, navy and olive greenish colors and the high-quality 1680 Denial nylon fabric resists wear, moisture, dirt, and abrasion. Because of the 1680 denial fabric, the bag is durable and lightweight at the same time.

Compartments
The bag has two compartments: one is a garment holder section and one is for the rest of your clothes and accessories. The garment holder section fits 1-2 suits for sure, but if your suits are thin, 3 suits should work as well. The garment bag and main bag unzip separately, which keeps things orderly and also makes it extremely easy to get to a change of clothes quickly. The main compartment has shoe bag slots.
This garment bag features several handy pockets: there’s an outside pocket for frequently used items and inside the bag, there are mesh pockets for toiletries. Also, you can create a hanging shelf by attaching garment bag hook to the exterior of the bag, since the straps will form an angle to create a ‘shelf’ from the packing section, still allowing full access to garments.

Handle and wheels
The handle is made of high-quality aircraft-grade aluminum and stops 4 heights ensuring you to adjust the most comfortable position. The bag has 2 conventional, roller wheels, which means that the wheels are more stable in place and can not be damaged like spinner wheels, which break more easily. The disadvantage of the 2 wheels solution is that it’s a bit harder to manage, as you can pretty much only move it back and forth. Because of the 2 wheels, the bag is lighter than the 4 spinners wheeled bags though.
The supporter on the bottom of the bag is also very practical: this way the bag will stand alone, won’t tip over or touch the ground. I really find this useful, because I don’t have to clean the bottom of the bag all the time.

Warranty

The bag comes with a lifetime warranty, which is a huge plus. It’s very reassuring to have a lifetime warranty for the bag: I prefer to buy goods with decent warranty because if any problems arise, I know there will be a solution. For details on the specific warranty, please read the description of the product.

Customer experience

Customers are very pleased with the product, and they highly recommend it, they had no bad experience or disappointment so far.

Note on the dimensions
According to the manufacturer, the bag measures 9 x 22 x 14 inches and weighs 9 pounds, but if we measure carefully, the bag has slightly different sizes. Instead of 22” tall, the bag is 21.9” tall, and it’s not 14” wide but 13.9” wide. I guess, the manufacturer just rounded up the numbers to make it simpler. Although instead of being 9” deep, in the reality the bag is 9.25” deep if include the outside handle as well. In theory, it can cause problems to use it as a carry on, but to be honest, as long as it fits the sizer, it shouldn’t be a problem at all.

This lightweight duffel-like garment bag designed escpecially for professinal womens and for those who like to travel with style. The bag designed for multiple purposes: it can be used as a regular travel or tote bag, but it can be used as a carry on garment bag as well.

Pros

  • Unique style
  • Lightweight
  • High-quality
  • Carry on size
  • Trolley sleeve

Cons

  • Pricey

Due to its microfiber fabric, this stylish duffel garment bag enables you to travel lightweight and with an ease of mind. The water-repellent fabric is a huge plus at this bag.
The advantage of this soft-sided garment bag is the flexibility: if you have a ton of clothes and items, the bag might be bulkier but it will hold them, and if you have just a few items, the bag will be thinner.
This way, this bag always adapts to your needs wherever you go.

This garment bag comes in three colors and patterns: the black one lends you a modest, professional and elegant look, the red one with flowers gives you a unique and feminine style, while the blue one with squares creates a sporty and youthful look.

The removable and adjustable shoulder strap comes handy if your bag is heavy or you need to carry other bags and suitcases as well. With the shoulder strap this bag is a great garment bag, and without the strap, you can use this bag as a usual bag.

This bag measures 12″ x 22″ x 3″, the maximum length of the adjustable strap is 48.25″, and this means, this bag is a great carry on. If you travel by plane, this bag can be a good choice.

The external zip pocket is designed to store smaller, frequently used items like phones or documents, and the interior features two zip pockets, four hanger loops.
The back of the bag there’s a trolley sleeve which comes handy if you carry a suitcase as well. If you don’t need this sleeve, you can zip shut and use it as a normal pocket.
Also, there’s a hook for hanging the bag and make packing easier.

Customers praise this bag. They love the high-quality material and craftsmanship and they’re thankful for the multifunctional design of the bag.

This rolling garment bag is ideal for longer business trips, as it fits two suits and other casual clothes enough for two days. Besides the clothes, there’s enough place for shoes and accessories as well. The multiple pockets come handy if you like to keep everything organized, and the limited lifetime warranty is great when something unexpected happens.

Pros

  • Ample room
  • Sturdy handle
  • Perfect to use as a carry on
