Lightweight carry-on that will meet Lufthansa's strict requirements?

Jump to last reply

I own several pieces of carry-on luggage, including a 19" Delsey and two 20" Travel-Pro suitcases. I thought I had the bases covered, but Lufthansa lists 21.65 " X 15.74" X 7.87", 18 Kg as the maximum.

The height and width are not an issue, but the depth is. I haven't been able to find a lightweigt carry-on larger than a 16" that meets the depth requirement. I can't fit eight days worth of clothing in a 16" suitcase as its other dimensions are too small. I also have to have wheels. I thought Heys hardside luggage might be the answer because it is so lightweight, but it is around 10" in depth.

I'm not quite 5' tall, and finding clothes that fit , even at home, is a challenge. Losing a suitcase would be really difficult. We have a 90 minute connection to make so it's a real risk. I really want to travel as usual, with just a carry-on. Any luggage suggestions?
