We've all felt the frustration set in when we unpack our suitcases after a five-hour flight, only to find our freshly ironed dresses, blouses, or pants wrinkly, once again. But fret no more—we have some good news, and it's going to save you so much time and stress when it comes to keeping your clothing crisp, clean, and wrinkle-free while you travel. Enter: the carry-on garment bag, your new favorite airplane companion for all your upcoming holiday vacations—and we might even go so far as to say it will replace your other luggage altogether (of course, this depends on the length of your trip and how many pieces of clothing you need).
A garment bag carry-on, depending on the size, can hold quite a bit (think dinner dresses, daytime blouses, etc.), but we were curious to find those with the maximum capacity, ones that really could replace your need for any other luggage this holiday season. Because if you don't have to lug around a large suitcase (nor deal with check-in and baggage pickup), well, that will seriously reduce your time spent at the airport.
Below, we found the 25 best garment bag carry-ons that claim to hold a lot. Most of our picks even have additional storage and compartments for shoes, toiletries, and other essentials, so read on to see and shop our selection.
