How the LAT_56 Carry-On Rates:

  • Usefulness: 10/10. The RW_02 has lots of useful features, like clever access pockets and water-resistance. It’s a solid rolling suitcase that will meet most airlines’ size requirements.
  • Value: 8/10. Although an expensive initial outlay, the limited lifetime guarantee could mean that this is the last suitcase you ever need to buy.
