The Best Travel Bag

The Best Travel Bag

Over the past few months, I have been scouring the internet for the best travel bag in the market.

I was looking for a bag to compliment my current carry-on roller. The bag I was searching for was preferably 40L, lightweight, airline approved, handle my packing load, durable, have a trolley sleeve, & could be used as a backpack when needed.

Oh, I did I mention the bag needed to be affordable!  Many of the current recommended travel bags are going for well over $250, and I really did not want to pay that much for a bag.

I Found The Best Travel Bag

This is just my opinion, but I truly fell in love with this bag! I did it, I found the best travel bag. It took some time, and patience, but I am extremely happy!

Travelling overseas four to five times a year has taught me quite a few things about packing.

When traveling, I am usually abroad anywhere between 8 & 13 days, and I prefer to have a few options of clothing when I’m out and about. I do what it takes to avoid checking in a bag.  

With that said, I needed a bag that could handle 8-13 days of clothing & handle my other essential items.

Here is a photo of what I usually take on my travels & for this to be contender for best travel bag, all these items had to fit comfortably in the bag.
