Best carry-on bag that looks professional and FITS
December 17, 2011 10:12 AM Subscribe
Trying to buy a rolling carry-on that will reliably fit in overheads and look professional when I take it to work/clients. Right now tempted by Tumi Alpha Continental 20"
($$$) but wonder if TravelPro Walkabout 4
($) would be just as good.

I'm used to the amazing quality and lifetime warranties of Eagle Creek (none of their current line work for me, for various reasons- I will be giving my current Eagle Creek bag to a family member once I replace it) and a little put off by Tumi and TravelPro's much more parsimonious 5 year warranties.
Any opinions? I travel extremely frequently for work (essentially 15 days a month right now) and am sick of having carry-ons that I have to put in sideways or jam into overheads. 99% of my travel is domestic U.S., I frequently use public transport to get to and from airports. If you have other suggestions for high quality bags that will look professional and won't break (or any thoughts about 2 wheels vs 4...), I'd be grateful for them!
