Carryon for my son

Jump to last reply

It is time to retire the Thomas the Tank Engine suitcase! My son has loved it since we got it nearly 5 years ago, but at 1260 cu in, it simply is too small for an 8-yr-old growing boy, especially as we don't check anything when we travel.

I'd like to get him something closer in size to my 22" wheelie, which is nearly 3000 cu in. Price should be under $100 and it should be sturdy enough to last 10 years til high school graduation. He wants zebra stripes.

We've had one false start already--ordered the Baggalini Rolling Tote bag ($80 at Shoebuy.com). We loved it--looks and quality and well thought-out details, pockets & things. Unfortunately, it is liliputan and comes in right between Thomas and mine. Still, ignoring the size, you can get an idea of the kind of thing we're looking for.

What suggestions do you have for what to get--and what to avoid?
