TravelTeq Trip

Leave it to a laptop bag maker to come up with the ultimate carry-on. The hard-sided TravelTeq Trip ($800-$850) features plenty of compartments for your clothes, laptop, phone, and other gear, smooth-gliding wheels on legs that can extend out of the back of the case, a sliding top plate that serves as a stool, a telescoping handle, and even optional speakers to blare your protest rock in the middle of the TSA security line.
