Carry ons without wheels? Red Oxx??

Jump to last reply

I am determined to take carry-on only on an upcoming, week-long trip to Europe. But I am overwhelmed by the range of luggage.


I've read many reviews and am considering the RedOxx carry-on bag, which seems to get excellent reviews here and on online sites.

Question: Is there any advantage to buying a bag without wheels? I imagine that it would fit more since there does not have to be space devoted to the wheel mechanism. I will be traveling by car and do not expect to have to schlep the bag too much, except at the airports.

I would love to have opinions about this particular bag, about non-wheeled carry-ons, and about any other carry ons that you might recommend. I am not on a tight budget; I am looking for the best bag rather than for a bargain....

Many thanks!
