Welcome to IndependentTraveler.com’s 12 Days of Travel Giveaways! Every day between December 2 and December 13, we’ll feature a different travel product for our readers to win. You may enter to win as many items as you wish (but only once per item).

lipault foldable carry-onOur final giveaway is a Lipault 22-Inch Two-Wheeled Foldable Carry-On, a lightweight bag that can be compressed into a four-inch-wide plastic case for easy storage.

Here’s what we had to say about the bag in The Quest for the Perfect Carry-On: “I expected a thinner, floppier material (a la LeSportsac bags or ultra-light camping equipment), but it’s actually pretty sturdy. I carried it onboard one way, and could easily lift and carry the bag, while simultaneously pushing a stroller and carrying a backpack. I checked it on the way back, and it came back to me with no scuffs or tears. And it truly does squeeze down into a compact storage case that would fit easily under a bed, in a closet or in the corner of a cruise ship cabin.”

The carry-on retails for $189 at the Lipault website.

Want to win this gently used purple carry-on? Leave a comment below by 11:59 p.m. ET on December 15, 2013. We’ll pick one person at random to win the bag. This giveaway is open only to residents of the Lower 48 United States and the District of Columbia. To read the full contest rules, click here.

Editor’s Note: This contest has ended. The winner is Isabel Menendez. Congratulations!

  35. Dan says:

    What a great find!

  36. A carry on by Lipault that folds into a 4 inch space under a bed or in a corner of a room… that has a great appeal for my travel needs. I looked at this Lipault carry on, it covers the legal size carry on requirements and shrinks into a 4 inch space and so very light to handle. Its so travel ready I will add a shoulder harness call this bag “Hank” and hike across France and Germany this summer.

  37. As I tend to overpack, this would be perfect to help me with my things that I carry on, especially if it is lightweight.

  38. Love the fact that the bag compresses for storage and is light weight. Managing multiple items on a trip is difficult and the idea of a light weight and easy travel bag is heaven

  39. Love the the fact that the bag is compressed when not in use. Also that it is light weight.

  48. Laurie says:

    Having a steel plate on one of my collar bones limits my mobility in lifting things overhead, so this lightweight bag would be ideal to use in my travels! Thank you for this offer!

  49. Sue Madrid says:

    Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, Mike, I need this bag. Why? VACATION DAYYYYYYY!

  50. Jane Steele says:

    As a suitcase junky, I am always on the lookout for a new lighter suitcase. While I always look at suitcases, I haven’t purchased a new one for several years. After this year’s month long trip, I’ve decided I need a new smaller and lighter suitcase. The Lipault would be perfect. I hope to win.
