We've awarded the Briggs and Riley Domestic carry-on bag our Top Pick for Business Travel for several reasons. Firstly, this bag is well-constructed with sturdy materials that are sure to last through thousands of miles flown. Its unique "Outsider" handle (the telescoping handle is on the outside of the bag) provides a flat interior packing surface and maximizes internal space. Plus, its equally unique "CX" internal expansion system provides 25% more volume in case you return home with more items than you originally packed. Its built-in garment bag keeps your work attire wrinkle free and ensures that you never forget it hanging in a hotel closet. It has a classic, professional look to it suitable for any business environment. Finally, all this is backed by their "Simple as That" guarantee. Briggs and Riley will repair any damage to your bag, be it a manufacturer defect or something that was caused by an airline, for life.
While you'll pay twice as much for this bag as most of the other models in this review, if you are a frequent flyer (or notoriously hard on your luggage) we think the Baseline Domestic expandable carry-on is a solid investment. If you are looking for a more casual bag that has lots of its own unique features, our Editors' Choice winning Eagle Creek Tarmac AWD is a great choice as well.
