THE BEST Bags
Piorama’s A10 Adjustable Bag starts out as a 31L bag. But you can expand it to 46.5L by extending either of its ends, and then to 62L by opening up both ends. It comes with a shoulder strap and backpack straps for more versatility. It’s available in six colors.
A small version of Chrome’s iconic messenger bag, the Mini Metro is still big enough to carry a 15″ MacBook Pro. It’s made from waterproof, military-grade nylon, with a heavy duty tarpaulin lining. Its seat belt buckle has a bottle opener, and the strap has loops for carabiners.
Zeropoint Design Labs’ teensy bag is so portable you’ll have no reason to leave home without it. It’s as small as a coin when rolled up and is lighter than a key. It unrolls into either an A4 or A3-sized bag. It’s made of splashproof, dust-resistant and durable polyester.
Organize your grooming kit on the go with this waterproof and scratch-resistant toiletry bag. It has a roll-up design to make it compact and expandable mesh pockets for your toothbrush, toothpaste, facial wash and more. It also has two zipped pockets and a leather loop.
Opposethis‘ minimally-styled backpack has a sleek V-shape design that makes both the contents at the top and the bottom easier to reach. It has a dedicated laptop compartment that fits up to 15″ laptops and is made of waterproof nylon. There’s also a 13″ version.
Bag and luggage maker Away offers gift sets that come in a miniature carry-on. There’s a grooming gift set, a beauty set, an essentials set, and just the carry-on itself. The carry-on comes in a variety of colors and materials, but we think the aluminum one is the best.
Standley’s LeanBag is the world’s first backpack that you can lean on. It has an aluminum frame that provides ample support for your back, and a rollout sitting pad to protect your butt from dirt. It’s dirt- and water-resistant and has lots of compartments to organize your belongings.
Bagsmart’s Xpedition backpack uses modules that attach to an X-shaped frame using Fidlock magnetic snaps. This not only keeps your items compartmentalized, it also distributes weight evenly, reducing strain when carrying the bag. You can choose from three module sets.
