The Best Hand Luggage to Fit Under Any Seat - Family Traveller (USA)

Say goodbye to needing overhead space with these bags that can fit right under your seat. We've rounded up the best hand luggage and weekender bags to suit every traveler, from the stylish to the rugged.

The Jemma Travel Collection

The Jackie bag comes in three go-with-anything colors and is designed using the finest quality materials to withstand regular travel. This nylon travel bag with vegan leather details features a spacious ventilated compartment for stowing multiple pairs of shoes and a roomy interior for travel essentials: a laptop, magazines and clothes for a few nights stay.  The Jackie meets airline carry-on requirements and fits under plane seats.

Longchamp Le Pliage Collection

The subtle yet refined design of Longchamp's Travel Bag XL keeps all of your personal belongings protected. Great for space-saving, it can even be folded up to the size of a paperback book when not in use. Longchamp drew its inspiration from origami when creating Le Pliage, a light, foldaway bag that has since become a cult object worldwide. The Le Pliage line comes in a multitude of shapes and sizes, and in a dozen or so colors each season. It's durable enough to keep all your essentials close at hand for a quick trip.

Tumi Alpha Bravo Collection

From Tumi's Bravo collection of modern business and travel bags comes this slim and well-organized commuter brief that expands the packing capacity to a greater degree. The Albany Slim Commuter Brief Leather has plenty of pockets and is gender neutral. It offers a dedicated laptop compartment and another section for accessories and files. The bag features top-carry handles and a removable, adjustable shoulder strap.

Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag

The Timbuk2 Classic Messenger Bag is great for the rugged traveler. A low profile grab strap makes the messenger easy to grab and go and SR buckles are partially concealed behind the messenger flap for a more refined — but just as secure — closure. Inside, the waterproof TPU liner and corner wings keep water out, and the internal water bottle pocket keeps water in. Distributed internal pockets and organization balances the weight of your carry.

Samsonite Wheeled Underseater

The Samsonite Wheeled Underseater Small is a great option for those wanting wheels. The bag features a combination of Polyester and Nylon fabrics for long-term durability. The push button locking handle with smooth rolling in-line skate wheels, internal packing compartments with internal wetpak pockets, side water bottle pockets, removable 3-1-1 pouch and removable hanging organizer pouch take this hand luggage to the next level.

Everlane Twill Weekender

This light and durable weekender bag comes in an assortment of color combinations, making it gender neutral and easy to customize. It fits inside any overhead compartment, is 100% water-resistant with its twill exterior and the 12" drop straps allow for holding by hand or tossing over your shoulder.

LL Bean Boat and Tote XL

This $40 canvas tote has been doing some heavy-lifting since 1944. Tested to hold up to 500 pounds, you'll be able to fit way more than you can carry. Snatch it up in the extra large size with long handles and a zipper closure for easy weekend use. You can even customize it with a name or monogram. The Boat and Tote is a classic for a reason.

NAVO Sport Duffle

Great for kids, this bag comes in an assortment of camo patterns and is easy to fold up and put away when not in use. It comes with a matching drawstring bag. The duffle itself is only 3 ounces, but can hold nearly 44 pounds.
