At Global Luggage, each one of us likes to think we’re the ultimate luggage aficionado. Subsequently, we’re always debating what we think makes the very best cabin luggage stand out, so we decided to go one further and, with the help of some frequent flyers, analysed what we believe to be the “most popular” cabin bags to see which one would fit on the most commercial airlines, and definitively be crowned the most versatile cabin luggage.

 

 

For our research we used the 20 most popular choices of cabin bags (not just ones that we sell, disclaimer!) and gathered the dimensions and weights of each one. We then deduced exactly how many major commercial airlines each piece of luggage would fit on by matching the dimensions with the hold baggage limits of these airlines. You can see the results here with our interactive cabin luggage study.

 

But here, we’ll sum up the winners:
