Some people are born great packers. They make packing for weekend trips, long holiday getaways and everything in between seem easy. The key is to pack just the right amount of clothes and outfits that actually match while somehow keeping it all organized. If you need help with that last part, you need to check out the Solgaard Carry-On Closet suitcase.
Maybe you’ve used packing cubes in the past? Well, this is better. The Carry-On Closet has a patented, built-in six-shelf system that keeps clothes, shoes and accessories organized no matter where you go. The shelving system also acts as a compression system, so you can fit even more into your carry-on.
When you get to your destination, simply extend the shelving system, and you have your own pop-up closet. The shelving unit’s top handle connects to the suitcase’s pull handle to hold it all up (see the picture below). Your hotel room will stay clean, and you’ll never leave your favorite sweater or a pair of undies behind because you forgot it was in a drawer.
Carry-On Closet, $275–$295
In addition to the shelving system, the Carry-On Closet has a USB charging port, a hard polycarbonate shell, quiet “frictionless” wheels, a TSA-approved lock and a soft-grip handle. Plus, there is no zipper — it shuts and locks with two latches. You won’t have to struggle with a broken zipper or a zipper snagging on any of your items inside.
The Carry-On Closet comes in 13 neutral and bold colors. According to Solgaard, all U.S. and international airlines, including smaller European budget airlines, will accept it the medium size. All U.S. airlines will accept the larger size, however, if you tend to travel mostly domestically. The medium retails for $275 and the large costs $295 — both ship free when you order it on the Solgaard website.
More than 1,400 Solgaard customers give the Carry-On Closet a collective 4.9 out of 5 stars on its website.
“I wasn’t convinced I could actually pack enough in this to be able to travel with only a carry-on. I was wrong,” wrote one reviewer. “By selecting quick-dry layers and using travel-sized toiletries, I could actually travel very comfortably for three weeks, even with the smaller, international-sized carry-on. I am amazed.”
“This is great to travel with,” wrote another customer in the reviews. “There are lots of features, but not having a zipper is the best part. So easy to open and close!”
Get it for all of your holiday travels, so you can feel organized no matter where you go.
