If you’re a seasoned traveller, then you know that having the perfect luggage makes all the difference.

Most people would head to a bag store and buy the top of the top-range that promises to last but will break the bank of $150 upwards.

Well, a Choice Survey has found that paying more, doesn’t always guarantee the best.

The top 16 carry-on suitcases according to “toughness, durability, water-resistance and wheels working on different surfaces” was revealed and Kmart’s $49 Active & Co soft, lightweight case came out as fourth!

The case had an overall score of 86%, which was equal to the top performer, a bag retailed at $239.


Coming in fifth was the Big W Jetstream case ($70) and the Kmart hard case suitcase ($38) at sixth place.
