Consider the best traveling backpack for successful trips: roomy, comfortable, with strong handles and padded shoulder straps. Perhaps, after getting acquainted with the collection of our backpacks on the road, you will not want to return to bags and suitcases.

What Is Important To Know When Buying A Carry-on Backpack?

Know your airline’s size and weight requirements for carry-on baggage. As a rule, standard norms are: 55 x 40 x 20 cm or 115 cm – the sum of three sides (width, depth, height). Weight – up to 10 kg. But you should definitely clarify this information with your airline, especially since the requirements are constantly changing. The Pobeda airline stands apart in this row, where the norm is now 36 x 30 x 27 cm, and we can also offer many options for backpacks specifically for Pobeda hand luggage.

How Do You Know If A Travel Backpack Is Good?

Firstly, immediately evaluate the capacity of the travel backpack, taking into account the number of things that you plan to take with you. Not all backpacks are equally useful for travel, and some are even harmful. For example, a backpack with strongly protruding side pockets or other parts should not be taken on the road, its size may exceed the allowable one, and its capacity will be small. Stick to more rectangular or streamlined shapes.

Secondly, we recommend buying a model with several compartments and additional pockets inside and outside – it is convenient to store small things in them that can come in handy at any time (flashlight, wet wipes, phone, cookies, headphones). 

Thirdly, look at the quality of the fittings and material, the quality of the seams, the density and width of the shoulder straps. A backpack on the road must be reliable, then it will be comfortable with it.
