Maybe one large travel backpack will work for you

Maybe one large travel backpack will work for you

Nov 14,2017

You’re going to be wearing this on your back and spending a lot of time with it, so you want to make sure you get the right one. Here are some things to consider when shopping for your new backpack:

  • Decide if you prefer top loading or panel loading.
  • Check the dimensions to make sure they work with your airline’s carry-on restrictions.
  • Make sure there are enough pockets for your needs.
  • Look for a rain cover.
  • Adjust the straps, including the waist strap, to make sure it fits comfortably.


Here’s what I fit in my large travel backpack on my most recent trip:

  • 9 t-shirts
  • 1 cute top
  • 2 pairs of shorts
  • 2 pair of pants (plus I wore a pair of jeans travel days
  • 4 pairs of socks
  • 10 pairs of underwear
  • 1 pair of shoes (clunky wedges)
  • 1 bag of travel-sized liquid toiletries
  • Make-up, razor, hairbrush, prescription medication
  • Laptop, charger, external hard drive
