Whether you have an absurdly short layover, a tight scheduling squeeze between picking up your airport car rental and your first meeting, or just don't want to lug a large suitcase around, having a carry-on bag filled with all of the essentials for your business trip is a good idea. While there are a ton of quality models on the market, these are the carry-on bags that you'll use for years to come:

Travelpro Rolling Tote
Popular among flight attendants and pilots, the Travelpro rolling tote is the perfect size to carry on. It's also ideally suited for business travel, with a professional design, foam-padded laptop sleeve and a business organizer in the front pocket. A matching business brief is also available.

Spectra Global Carry-on
This sleek suitcase from Victorinox has been recommended by the experts at Travel + Leisure because it is extremely durable despite only weighing six pounds. The bag's wheel design allows for 360-degree rolling, so you can get where you need to go in a hurry.

Tumi Vapor
For an ultra-modern carry-on style, the Tumi should be your go-to. The Vapor international carry-on will fit in the plane's overhead compartment no matter where you're traveling, and has been tested for superior strength and durability. This carry-on is built to last.
