4.5 Stars on

Although using a backpack carryon is the lightest way to travel, it typically only accommodates people with very light travel needs: without make-up, dress clothes, etc…  Students and overnight travelers are probably best suited for this feather weight travel carryon, but which style and brand will best suit your needs?

First, lets explore the inexpensive and practical JanSport Classic Backpack Carryon with ergonomic S-curve shoulder straps, a fully padded back panel, two large main compartments, a padded laptop sleeve and two front utility pockets for all your storage needs for a same day or overnight flight.  The bag is made of 600-denier polyester for rugged use, and a polypropylene web loop handle offers extra handling convenience when carrying the bag through airport security.

Compression Straps

4 Star Adventure w/Side Straps

Some models offer two side compression straps that adjust to help you manage the load on your back by putting additional weight directly on your hips.  This is highly recommended for people with back pain issues.  Carrying additional weight on your back can cause or flare up back pains in a short period of time.  The standard 15″ laptop will fit nicely into most of the JanSport bags, however some models provide additional protection to the laptop such as the JanSport Air Series Backpack Carryon.  The extra cushion is highly recommended for traveling with your prized possession: the laptop.

JanSport Wheeled Backpack Carryon

4 Star Antic Driver Rolling Carryon

Rolling Backpack Carryon

An optional pull handle and wheel assembly can take the weight completely off of  your back with a rolling carryon.  The handles come in two styles: the common duel leg, or the single leg handle as shown here.  Both handle styles extend to a comfortable height, and since the backpack carryon is lightweight and low to the ground, either style will easily guide you along through the airport.
