The Carry-On Bags That Every Traveler Should Have
Frankly, no one bag is ideal all the time for every traveler. Hey, come on, we are just being honest. Having said that, when you weigh your choices (no pun intended) for a carry-on bag, there are some basic things that you need to keep in mind like ease of carrying, amount of space, expandability, quality of materials and cost.
As baggage fees in airlines have skyrocketed, finding a high-performance carry-on bag has become essential for travelers. Carry-on bag features such as more than adequate space, TSA-friendly tech compartments and even the wheels can make a difference between a smooth and a bumpy ride.
We bring you four different types of carry-on bags that you will love to have with you this Fall. Go with a bag that meets your needs the most and one whose shortcomings you can live with.
Note: Always double-check with your airline to confirm size and weight limits for carry-on bags. Many of Europe’s budget carriers have carry-on size limits that are smaller than what we’re accustomed to in the US. When in doubt, opt for a baggage check in.
What could be better than carrying your world around on your back? Mobile and compact travel carry-on backpacks are smaller in size than regular backpacks and yet, they pack a punch. We love Osprey’s far point 40, which is the perfect getaway gear with pretty much everything for both short-term as well as long-term travelers. The highly comfortable backpack straps and the hip belt keep the weight off your shoulders. The availability of different-sized pockets means that all your requirements find a way in without you having to leave out even the smallest of the items. It comes in two sizes, small/medium and medium/large. These sizes are designed for people of different heights.
