Delsey Helium Shadow 3.0 International Carry On

Best Carry On Luggage for International Travel

Why people love it
  • Lightweight
  • Plenty of room
  • Easy to maneuver

The top opening is unique for hard-case carry ons and the smooth-rolling wheels are an extra benefit. It’s a great price for an airline-compliant piece.

The zippers aren’t the best (and can be difficult to close at the corners), and you will either love or hate the front pocket.


This is fantastic for traveling overseas. Besides fitting into the airline restrictions, it’s relatively lightweight and comes with a reasonable price tag. The wheels are smooth and the handle makes this a comfortable bag to maneuver through terminals.

We appreciate the expandable ability of the bag – that’s 2”, but it does mean you will need to check it. But, the best feature is the top opening aspect of the bag – that can make a big difference in tiny spaces and it’s unusual for hard-shell bags and the protection they come with.

Durability and construction: 100% polycarbonate which is strong, lightweight, and resistant to scratching.

Design: Hard-shell wheeler

Dimensions: 19" x 13" x 9". It should fit in just about every airline’s overhead bin.

Weight: 7.5 pounds. That’s right down the middle.

Pockets and storage: There’s an interior zip pocket, but we love the large front pocket with a built-in padded sleeve that will fit a laptop up to 15.6”.

Handles and wheels: The telescopic handle fits comfortably into your hand and remains that way whether you’re pushing or pulling. As you can guess, the wheels allow easy maneuverability in any direction – and they’re super silent.

Security: There’s a built-in, recessed TSA-approved lock.

Colors available: Black, navy, platinum, and purple

Price and warranty: The MSRP is $320, but you really shouldn’t have to pay that price. Depending on the color you choose, you should expect to pay between $80-$120. With that, you get a limited 10-year worldwide warranty.
