The Better Carry-On Bag

The Better Carry-On Bag

When it comes to judging luggage, New York Mets starting pitcher R.A. Dickey is a natural. The best knuckleballer in the game spends more than 115 days a year on the road, "living out of some kind of suitcase," he says – dragging his bag from car to stadium to shuttle bus to plane. So he thinks about luggage. A lot. "I've become obsessed with gear that makes my life a little more organized," says the pitcher. "It's like an ongoing rebellion against the chaos that traveling creates." We asked Dickey to test out a few carry-ons for us on the road. Click on the gallery below to see what he thought of each one. Launch Gallery >>
