Good Housekeeping tests smaller carry-on bags

Carry-on luggage comes in a variety of colors, styles and patterns. But there's a lot more to consider than looks.

"Before a consumer purchases some carry-on luggage they need to think about how they're going to be using it and how they're going to pack," said Kathleen Huddy of Good Housekeeping.

Testers like the Burton Wheelie Flight Deck Bag because it has lots of compartments, including one for a laptop; it retails for $220. The Desley Helium Fusion Lite is a bargain at $90. It has lots of pockets and a large interior.

"The Delsey Helium Zip bag is made of the new polycarbonate hard sides. It's scratch resistant, water resistant and dent resistant," said Huddy.
