Hoist the Rangi Roller, and you’ll notice it’s a little hefty — the heaviest roller carry-on we tested. It’s also packed full of features we like. The rigid sides and back combine with a padded front flap to offer excellent protection for your camera or laptop. Inside the main compartment are well-placed compression straps and two mesh zippered pockets. Outside are three zippered pockets — the largest with an organizer that has a fleece-lined pocket to protect your smartphone screen. The bag fit our test-gear load with room to spare. It pulls easily, and the telescoping handle locks away securely. The padded top and side handles were among the best we tried. The bag has excellent reinforcements at wear points, especially on the bottom and around the wheels, and a heavy flap protects the bottom of the zipper. While there are lots of features divers will appreciate, the bag is also attractive enough for any sort of travel. It’s the most expensive roller carry-on we tested, but it’s built to last, and its thoughtful design makes it a pleasure to use. The Rangi Roller is our Testers’ Choice.
