We are huge fans of one bag travel and can never imagine going back to traveling with a traditional carry on. However, one of the challenges with one bag travel is that you typically have to pack some sort of additional backpack to use during your day to day when you arrive at your destination as most travel backpacks will be too big or heavy to carry around with you all day. Thankfully, a few companies have taken it upon themselves to try to create a bag that can really fulfill the dreams of anyone looking for a true one bag travel experience. Unfortunately, when you are looking for a bag to satisfy all needs there will always be compromises, but after a great deal of testing these are the bags that we think are doing it best at the moment:
Nomatic Travel Pack
Timbuk2 Never Check Expandable Backpack
Tortuga Setout Divide
Opposethis Invisible Carry-On
Wandrd Prvke 21
5.11 Rapid Quad Zip Pack
