Do you hear that? It’s the sound of everyone rejoicing at the start of the 2018 summer travel season. After a tough few months where we battled winter storm Toby and Hurricane Irma, we’ve finally made it to that time of year when everyone is hopping flights or jumping in the car for a long getaway. But if you’ve ever struggled with packing, then you know the importance of finding the right weekender or carry-on bag.

And not just any bag, but one that works based on your Myers-Briggs personality type. Because let’s be real. Some of us are the low-maintenance, get-up-and-go type, while others need a chic carry-on for our many outfit changes.

If you’re trying to skirt the checked baggage fees when you fly or need an oversized tote that can fit in the backseat or trunk, the carry-on bags below are for you. Some are serious investments (great if you travel a lot!) but others start at just $30.
