These suitcases are durable for cobblestone roads! If I was flying internationally, I would pack either of these carry-on bags because they have double wheels.
The handle is sturdy so it does not wobble.
I can pack all the way to the corners. In-between wheels is extra space for packing.
The pockets give me organization. Love the pockets for organizing things I want easily accessible like shorts to change into when I land or pajamas if I arrive late to my destination.
For personal item bags, most of you pack in backpacks or in a tote bag.
For air travel, backpacks are what I reach for the most.

The difference between the pink suitcase and my blue Level8 is the outer pocket which I do love.
Both have embedded wheels with a middle prong for extra strength making them durable!
Either of those carry-on suitcases have the best wheels for cobblestone roads in Savannah, Georgia or Munich, Germany! Notice it does not have an outer pocket, and therefore you have more room for packing travel essentials.
Personal Item Bags:
Backpacks: light gray 15.6 version has 16 pockets, a removable usb, lightweight, and light interior for dark airplanes
Striped one has 17 pockets and a bar along the top edge, and same 15.6 version for a laptop
These both slide onto my shoulders easily. Packing tip: put an extra shirt and some undies in a compression packing cube in case your suitcase gets lost.
Under Airplane Seat Suitcase that Rolls: holds a lot; has removable toiletry bag, easy access to outer pockets for TSA and in airplane or airport if you cannot wear a crossbody bag
Its dimensions are 13.39 ” x 9.45″ 14.17″ and fit under 2 different airplane seats. I packed 8 outfits in this underseat luggage.
Travel Tip: google your airline’s under airplane seat personal item bag requirements because they can be very different!
11 pockets are in this fanny pack that can be worn across the body but bulky. It has gloriously smooth fabric and zippers
This belt bag is great for the beach because it is waterproof, it allows you to be hands free, and it has mega space for travel essentials!
Black crossbody with removable straps: 3 pockets and large, outer pocket for phone but only one has the removable strap so do not miss it. This crossbody bag is larger than my next two.
For air travel you can add your own straps; available in red if flying to Canada or England; inexpensive so I am not worried about it touching the airplane floor or breaking, but I have had these for 4 years with no quality problems. I use the green and red strap for Christmas travel. Both crossbody bags have 5 pockets for travel essentials.
