During the good old days, the sure sign of a quality product was its weight. The heavier that the item in question was, its perceived quality was a lot higher. With the development of new fabrics and materials, all of this changed, and as far as I’m concerned, it couldn’t have happened soon enough.
Seriously, can you imagine how annoying would it be to carry a 20 lbs bag on your travels nowadays? Luckily, there are plenty of manufacturers doing their best to maximize the quality, while keeping the design as modern as possible. One of such is definitely Standard Luggage, and today, we’ll take a closer look at their fantastic product known as Standard’s Carry-on Travel Backpack.
Let’s get right to it.
It’s ideal for travelers and nomads
When you speak about luggage these days, the first thing that gets mentioned are the dimensions. It should really come as no surprise, as airlines are charging tons of money for your heavy bags, but it’s still possible to save a few bucks by sticking with luggage that falls under the cabin rules.
The Travel Backpack does, and with the size of 21.5 x 13.5 x 9.5 when fully expanded, it offers more than enough space for all of your personal belongings. Still, it’s important to mention that the overall weight was kept at a fairly modest 3.7 lbs, and for a backpack with a capacity of 45L, that’s very impressive.
Build quality is top-notch
Standard’s designers decided to put their trust in modern day materials, and it truly paid off. The exterior is created out of 1680 denier ballistic nylon, a very durable material that’s proven its worth in recent times. Not only that it’s capable of withstanding years of wear and tear, it also provides water resistance, and is super easy to clean.
All Standard’s products also sport YKK zips and buckles, while the Carry-on Backpack also has ITW Nexus clips and buckles with its sternum strap. If you still don’t have faith in this backpack, let me introduce you to Standard’s Lifetime Warranty and Satisfaction Guarantee policies! That’s right, this tremendous carry-on is definitely here to stay!
Let’s take a look at some of its features
One thing you’ll immediately notice is the clamshell style opening, allowing you to pack all of your belongings in just a couple of minutes. The practicality doesn’t end there. An expandable zip is added to the package, giving you extra 10L of volume to work with. We already mentioned above that this backpack is built from water resistant materials, but Standard decided to add another layer of protection, so they threw in another rain cover for safety. Also included in the package is the premium shoulder strap, transforming this backpack into a shoulder bag in an instant.
We finally come to the section you’ve all been waiting for, the talk about practicality. As with most backpacks, the story starts with compartments, something in which this carry-on excels at. Individuals who cannot imagine what their life would look like without a laptop present will be happy to hear that this backpack comes with a dedicated laptop pocket, ideally sized for most 15’’ work stations or a MacBook Pro. A removable laptop sleeve is very convenient when you need to reach for your gadgets in a hurry. The two front pockets are intended for your documents, and other essentials, while a hidden pocket on the inside will keep all of your prized possessions neatly tucked away. Every inch of space is put to good use through a multitude of components on the inside as well, and compression straps will keep everything secured in place. With padding on virtually every corner, you’ll have no problems with this bag, and I’m sure you’ll find it very comfortable to use.
What’s left to say? All things considered, this is one of the best backpacks on the market at the moment! It has a trendy design, offers tons of space, and is extremely practical and durable. A cherry on top is the Standard’s free worldwide shipping they are offering at the moment.
