This frequent-flyer favorite meets FAA regulations for both carry-on and checked luggage. It's made of sturdy scuff-and-stain-resistant nylon with built-in accessory pockets. Its fold-out suiter and tie-down system lets you pack away your clothes neatly — you can even expand it an extra two inches — ensuring they’ll be wrinkle-free when you reach your destination. 

The Travelpro Premium Elite suitcase is easy to navigate down stairs, in and out of car trunks, and through busy airports too, thanks to a precision-glide system, four-stop adjustable PowerScope handle, and 360-degree spinner wheels. It even has an integrated lock that lets TSA agents safely open and close the bag for inspection. Right now, it's $79 off.

“I began flying with my brother in 1964 when he became an airline pilot and I was a wee lad," wrote one fan. "I don't remember all of his bags over the years, but he was proudest of his Travelpro.”

"This bag is outstanding. You can pack a lot in it and it has outside pockets for the stuff you need to have fast access," wrote another happy traveler. "It is the perfect size to fit in and out of various plane's overheads."

"Had to retire my old carry on. Had a flight crew member recommend Travelpro two wheel and I am glad he did. Just took my first trip with it and does it ever pull easy," wrote an experienced customer. "The zipper construction is built to last (first thing I look at). Love the way the handle is curved to fit in your hand...Held my pressed shirts well and they kept their shape."

"This is a great addition to my collection of Travelpros. For the past five years I've been using the same carry on and it's stood up well but my latest trip I needed something smaller to get around in. You can't beat the brand that all of the pilots and attendants use when they travel," wrote a five-star reviewer. "From a design perspective you still get the great spinning wheels, sturdy frame and lightweight design. But this one has improved telescoping, a nice usb port for a removable battery and a better handle for picking it up."
