Pick of the Day: Baggallini Rolling Tote

This carry-on works as either a tote bag or rolling suitcase.

What Is It: A carry-on rolling tote from Baggallini.

Why It’s Smart:

• Can be carried as a tote bag or used as a rolling suitcase

• Three compartments: one for clothes, one for toiletries, and one for your laptop

• Built-in sleeve lets you slide the tote over the handle of another suitcase so you can easily carry two bags

• Telescoping handle collapses into a zippered pocket for when you are carrying this as a tote

• Made from water-resistant nylon

Where to Buy: Available on Amazon.
