Hi everyone *wave*, what's the 'legal' size for international carry on? i am considering LV Pegase 60 measures 14.5"x 22.5"x 7.5", or Pegase 50 measures 14.2"x 20"x 7.1". It really don't have to be LV, but I just want buy the max. legal size The flights will mainly be among Asia, such as Japan, Taiwan, China, HK, not sure if i can squeez enough time for Europe

Also what brand do you suggest for check-ins? My family are always torn between a good one (subject to airport's internal theft, or 'missing'), or a crappy one that sometimes give up in the middle of traveling.

Hi! Check your airline's website for their maximum allowed size for hand-carry luggage.

I travel a lot from the US to Asia and use a heavy-duty luggage brand like TravelPro for checked luggage. Checked luggage takes a lot of beating and sturdiness outweighs "fashion" in my mind.

There are a ton of luggage options on www.ebags.com. It's a great website with tons of pictures of each bag. You can also read comments from other people who have bought the bags.

Good luck!

I have found that some international flights go by both weight and size. I had a bag that was the allowed size, but weighed too much , so i was forced to check it. It was full, but only with clothes, nothing extra heavy. This was on China Air, I believe, and I also found this on Thai Intl. I would buy a cheaper durable bag and check it! I like Eagle Creek- extremely durable and not super expensive.
