Simply put, if you are looking for luggage of the highest calibre, neither of these examples will disappoint.
However, when it comes to choosing which case is better suited to your specific requirements, then things become a little more difficult. With this in mind, we compare these two best-selling carry-on bags to help you decide exactly which one fits the bill. Here then, is how these two bags stack up.

The size of your carry-on is a crucial factor to consider when making a purchase. Naturally, it has to conform to the guidelines of both national and international air travel, however, any further considerations regarding dimensions are down to the user. This is how both bags measure up to size:
- The Lexicon 20” Dual Caster Global Carry-On has a half inch tapered expansion at the top of the bag. This expansion only works to broaden the top of the bag, so while you aren’t actually gaining in space, you get the opportunity to slim it down if traveling lighter.
- The Baseline International Carry-On Wide Body Spinner is very similarly sized to the Lexicon. However, this piece of luggage offers the user a more conventional format and maintains its dimensions regardless of the amount you are carrying.
Larger cases are almost always heavier, however, most brands will try to keep weight to an absolute minimum so that their collections can be easily maneuvered wherever your journey takes you. With this in mind, we look how these bag tip the scales:
- The Briggs & Riley Baseline International Carry-On Wide Body Spinner weighs in at a very respectable 8.6 pounds. Shorter front wheels, no expansion system, and a lighter frame have helped to reduce the weight of this bag.
- Weighing slightly more, the the Victorinox Lexicon 20” Dual Caster Global Carry-On comes in at 9.2 pounds. This means that, while this bag is not the lightest in its class, it is certainly within acceptable limits and is maneuverable enough for any journey.
Packing can be frustrating when you simply have too much to carry, however, many pieces of luggage today offer innovative and practical designs to help you squeeze more in. Both of these cases are no exception, here we take a look at what each has to offer:
- With the Briggs & Riley Baseline Carry-On you gain minimal space thanks to its smaller front wheels; but as we know, every inch counts when packing. It’s always good to remember that Briggs & Riley mounts the handlebar on the outside of the bag so that you can flat pack your things. Plus, there’s the addition of a garment bag and tie down straps for your fancier clothing.
- If you’re a fan of internal pocketing, you’ll like the Victorinox Lexicon Carry-On because it has two more pockets inside the bag for storage, and all the interior is fabricated in velveteen to keep your clothing looking great when you pull it out of the bag. Additionally, tie down straps are included to maximize packing space.
Here then, we have compared the most prominent features of each case so you can make an informed decision as to which is better suited to your needs. However, we recognize that both cases have their merits, and we believe that you can't go far wrong whichever you choose. Make sure you take some time to identify which of these pieces of luggage offers you the best balance between size, space and convenience.
