July Carry On Pro Suitcase With Laptop Pocket Review

There are many things that can make traveling much more stressful than it should be, whether it’s lost luggage, delayed or canceled flights, or simply deciding what to pack first. However, going through security without holding the line behind you is always anxiety-provoking. As a frequent traveler, I thought I had perfected my TSA routine. I usually show up without wearing jewelry, a belt, or a smartwatch. I have my jacket or my sweatshirt in my hand and my shoes halfway. When it’s my turn to put my things in the trash, I just have to put everything in there and make my way through the scanner. The only part that usually slows me down is having to take my electronics out of my bag and then put them all back in afterwards.

I have seen more and more carry-on bags with laptop compartments on the market, which is a complete game-changer for convenient travel. July Carry On Suitcase was already an editor’s favorite, so I was excited to try out the new Pro Edition, which has a removable laptop sleeve on the outside of the hard-shell surface. I found it July Carry On Pro Suitcase ($345) gives me easy access to my tech whenever I want, without having to untangle my whole bag.

What I love about the July Carry On Pro suitcase

I can’t stress enough how convenient it is to have the SnapSleeve laptop sleeve built into the outside of the bag. The SnapSleeve gives me easy access to remove my laptop and other gadgets through security without unzipping all my carry-on. Plus, the padded, durable laptop sleeve has a few internal pockets to store all your cords, chargers, and other essentials. The detachable power bank also lets you work and communicate on the go, even when there’s no outlet in sight. You can charge your compatible devices with a USB-C or USB port, including your laptop, tablet, smartphone, and wireless headphones.

The July Carry-On Pro suitcase filled with clothes, toiletries, hair tools and more.

The Carry On Pro has enough room for just over a week’s worth of my toiletries; clothes; a pair of shoes; some hair tools such as a travel hair dryer, hair dryer brush or flat iron; and a few essential accessories — and I’m a certified overpacker. The hard shell suitcase allows me to store both sides of the luggage and then compress it with its zipped compartment and double strap compression system. Plus, it even comes with a hidden laundry bag.

Another thing I love about this case is how smoothly the 360 ​​degree spinner wheels glide through the airport and the streets without making an unpleasant noise. I don’t need to drag and lug this bag around; instead, it quickly follows my side without lagging behind. This carry-on is also quite durable: this suitcase has been tossed on baggage claim conveyor belts and scraped along sidewalks, and there’s barely a scratch in sight.

What to Note About July’s Pro Carry On Case

Although the SnapSleeve laptop sleeve fits a 16-inch Macbook Pro, trying to fit in something larger can be a hassle. In order to accommodate the removable SnapSleeve laptop sleeve at the front of the suitcase, one side of the hand luggage is not as deep as the other side. However, that doesn’t mean it lacks storage space; you can use the brand’s dual-strap compression system, along with space-saving folding techniques, to fit whatever you need. Your laptop or tablet, cables and chargers, and any other essentials will already have a place in the front of your bag. Anything that doesn’t fit in the July Carry On Pro case, you can always put it in the hand luggage for personal effects that you store under your seat.

When the plane is running out of cabin space, you’ll need to check your bag at the gate, and if you need your laptop or tech in-flight, there are a few things you need to do. First, take the portable charger out of your bag by pressing down on it and letting it bounce. To remove the SnapSleeve laptop sleeve, simply unzip the top of the sleeve, locate the internal tab and pull it, and the sleeve should come off easily. Even if you don’t need your tech mid-flight, I highly recommend removing the laptop sleeve if your bag is checked, just so you know your tech and other essentials are in safety with you.
