There’s a new carry-on luggage poised to be essential for 2023. For avid jetsetters who prefer to bypass the checked bag, in line with Pursuitist’s guidance, Roam has released a fresh carry-on bag equipped with a front pocket. We’ve already marked the Jaunt XL Roam as a standout among recent carry-on options. With this latest iteration, it’s evidently time for travelers to embrace more room and simplicity.
