There’s more to a great personal item than its size. In this guide, we go over the features you should look for, including excellent quality of construction, multiple ways to carry the bag, and internal organization options. From there, we look at different types of personal items that have all those features but are suited to different needs: Some bags are more protective, which is good if you’re traveling with expensive or breakable items; others are easier to carry, which is helpful if you find larger carry-ons cumbersome; still others provide more divided compartments and extra pockets for travel necessities. We also offer a few picks to fit different situations.
