    I love the Devan carryon in blue. The color will stand out in baggage claim, if I ever have to check it instead of putting it in the overhead compartment. And I love that it would fit in the overhead compartment, if there’s room for it. The hard side keeps my stuff safe, yet it’s expandable to fit all my post-vacation souvenirs.
