Whether it’s a weekend getaway or a week-long trip, everyone should try to embark on at least one summer vacation this year. Consider this your reminder to treat yourself not only to a relaxing holiday but also to a new suitcase to keep your belongings safe while you travel.

Luckily, the Amazon Basics 24-Inch Hardside Spinner — a no. 1 bestselling carry-on suitcase — is on sale for only $78 right now. That’s nearly $20 off the original price and is way cheaper than name-brand alternatives. It’s backed by more than 34,000 five-star ratings, one of which said it’s “just as good as the Away bag that cost me three times more.”

This suitcase offers loads of packing space thanks to its expandable design that allows up to 15% more room for additional clothes, shoes, or toiletries. The spacious interior features an organizer with a divider as well as three zippered pockets to ensure all of your items are secure and easy to find. To further organize your suitcase, we suggest adding a set of packing cubes to your Amazon order.

Its durable exterior is made of an extra-thick ABS hard shell topped with a scratch-resistant orange finish that’s easy to spot at baggage claim should it need to be checked. As a testament to how long-lasting it is, several shoppers said they’ve used this suitcase for five years or more and it’s still going strong even after countless flights.

Over 1,000 of these bags have sold in the past 30 days, and we’re not shocked considering it’s the perfect size for summer vacations. Although it meets carry-on guidelines for some airlines, it’s recommended to double-check your specific flight details before arriving at the airport, just in case.

Instead of spending hundreds of dollars on a name-brand suitcase, add the Amazon Basics 24-Inch Hardside Spinner to your cart while it’s on sale for only $78.
