Review: Monos Carry-On Pro suitcase

I’ve been wanting to invest in some new luggage for a while as I was growing tired of my carry-on bag always being scrutinized by the gate agents or being forced to gate-check it because it’s slightly too big. I also wanted a hard shell suitcase and one with four wheels instead of two. During
