As with any product, there are a lot of things that go into testing the best carry-on luggage. We start with over 100,000 verified customer reviews from thousands of products all across the web.
Then we filter out those with more than two stars, leaving thousands of owners who are dissatisfied for one reason or another. To find the most frequent issues, we create a word cloud of the complaints by applying Porter’s classification to our data.
Take wheels, for example: some people found them effective and sturdy, while others discovered that they were often broken right away. Finally, we manually examine the top ten remaining repeat issues and determine if they’re serious enough to affect the product rating.
We start with over 100,000 verified customer reviews from thousands of products all across the web. We filter out those with more than two stars because they’re probably just looking for a good rating.
Then we sort them by price range, from the cheapest to the most expensive in each category. Finally, based on our findings, we select our top five carry-on luggage options.
Then we filter out those with more than two stars, leaving thousands of owners who are dissatisfied for one reason or another.
We filter out products with more than two stars, which allows us to focus on the issues that are most important to consumers. This process leaves thousands of owners who are dissatisfied for one reason or another. When we look at what these customers have to say about their luggage, it can be helpful for us in determining how we should rate it.
We take this information and put it into our own ranking system. A+ = Excellent; A = Very Good; B+ = Above Average; B = Average; C+ = Below Average; C = Poor.
To find the most frequent issues, we create a word cloud of the complaints by applying Porter’s classification to our data.
This gives us a visual representation of the most common words used in the complaint text. We then use techniques like K-means clustering and tSNE to visualize this data and identify trends.
- Take wheels, for example: some people found them effective and sturdy, while others discovered that they were often broken right away.
- In general, durability is an important factor to consider when choosing luggage. Some of the most expensive pieces have been described as “so flimsy” by users who were disappointed in their purchases.
- The best way to find out how durable a piece of luggage is before you buy it is to read reviews on Amazon or elsewhere online; there are plenty of options available for you!
Finally, we manually examine the top ten remaining repeat issues and determine if they’re serious enough to affect product ratings.
We look back at the number of reviews that mention an issue to see how many people are affected by it. For example, if a significant number of customers have complained about their bag breaking after only a few uses, this would be considered a major issue.
We also consider how serious an issue is. If it’s minor enough to be fixable without much hassle (or without spending extra money), then we won’t factor it too heavily into our final ratingactor it too heavily into our final rating.
If a small percentage of customers report an issue but there isn’t any indication that it could cause damage or endanger your safety or if there are no other complaints then we will likely rate this as less important than something like durability or ease of use issues that affect every single user in some way, even if only slightly.
Finally, we look at overall product ratings and determine whether each one deserves its spot in our list based on its performance across all categories, including price/value ratio, ease-of-use, durability, comfortability, size/weight ratio, quality construction materials, and design aesthetics. *
We have access to a lot of different data sources, which allows us to find patterns in consumer behavior that brands would never be able to see on their own.
For instance, we analyzed the top sellers on Amazon and found that many of them were selling for less than $20. This information was valuable because it helped us determine that it’s possible for consumers to purchase luggage at a reasonable price point.
We also analyzed reviews from users who had purchased similar products and noticed patterns like “I got this bag because my old one broke, but now I wish I could take back this one too!” These insights helped us identify how consumers feel about certain brands and what they expect from them (in this case, quality).
