I always travel with a carry on suitcase and I’m not a light packer so I try to go with the largest piece of luggage allowed. Check with your airline to find out their specific carry on luggage allowance. Each airline is different.  I always use one which has wheels, and isn’t too heavy because I still need to lift it into the overhead compartment. This one even has a built in phone-charger, which makes it super convenient if my phone battery decides to die.
