This ultra-lightweight carry-on suitcase is arguably one of the most recognizable products from the brand. Also, since it's extremely expandable, it maximizes your packing power while meeting carry-on size restrictions for most international airlines. For reference, it expands up to 2 extra inches and has a tapered shape to prevent tipping.

It has four spinner 360-degree rotating wheels, a sturdy PowderScope Lite handle with a contour group, comfy, rubberized touchpoints and a unique bottom tray design that increases durability and stabilizes the wheels.

This 19-inch carry-on also has a low profile top, side and bottom carry handles, two exterior compartments, a full-length interior lid pocket and a side accessory pocket. There's also an adjustable hold-down strap for packing convenience and flexibility.

Meet the big brother of the 19-inch Maxlite 5 Softside Expandable Carry-On. It has all the same features, just in a taller and deeper frame.

Like the smaller version, it expands up to 2 extra inches and has lots of extra compartments (both internally and externally) to hold all of your belongings — from easy-access documents to larger items that need a little more protection.

This carry-on has been sizer bin tested to accommodate overhead bin space on most major U.S. airlines, so you can rest assured that it fits! However, remember that it may not easily fit if it meets or surpasses its expansion capacity.

As far as flight crew luggage is concerned, the 19- and 21-inch Maxlite 5 Softside Expandable Carry-Ons are the most popular.

Many believe that hardside luggage is the way to go as it naturally has a hard external barrier that keeps your belongings secure and safe.

Also, its outer coating helps reduce the appearance of scratches and scuffs.

It has a built-in TSA lock, interior zippered divider panels, an accessory pocket and many more compartments to keep you organized while you travel.

As previously noted, this carry-on is pre-tested to ensure it fits in the overhead bit.
