4. Recommended Carry-On Luggage Models and Trusted Places to Buy
For your convenience in carrying carry-on luggage, you should carry a cabin-sized suitcase, a duffle bag, or a travel backpack. Hung Phat suggests some carry-on luggage models that are easily available at AEON MALL supermarkets and Hung Phat's official retail stores.
4.1. Plastic suitcase size 20 (cabin size):
The typical capacity of a size 20 suitcase is around 7-10 kg. Adding the weight of the suitcase (about 2 kg), a cabin-sized suitcase can be taken on board.
However, depending on the weight of your belongings, the weight limit may be exceeded, requiring you to check your luggage. Therefore, estimate the weight of your luggage carefully before going through airport procedures!
Size 20 plastic suitcases at Hung Phat are carefully designed to meet the size requirements of various airlines, so you can rest assured when choosing Hung Phat suitcases as your travel companion.
At Hung Phat, there are hundreds of different suitcase models with various sizes to meet customers' transportation needs. Some suitcase models like Travelking 8081, 8081, and 808 have a dedicated laptop compartment to provide maximum protection for your laptop during travel.

4.2. Duffel Bag (gym bag)
With its fashionable, lightweight design and reasonable storage capacity, a duffle bag is also an excellent choice for carrying on board.
The typical capacity of a duffle bag is around 5-7 kg, which is suitable for the cabin luggage compartment. However, a duffle bag cannot hold a laptop, so if you need to bring your personal laptop for a business trip, consider carrying a cabin-sized suitcase, especially the models with a laptop compartment.
