With Thanksgiving right around the corner, many of us are gearing up for the Biggest Traveling Week of the Year. For some of us, traveling can be a bit intense with the cramped seats, hours of sitting on a plane or in an airport...and then there's the panic when the baggage carousel comes around and there's a million black rolling suitcases and none of them are yours. Which is why we decided to go out and find ourselves a great carry-on bag that's both roomy but still within regulation size: the Patagonia MLC travel bag.
This handy suitcase can hold up to five days worth of clothing (within reason, that is--for those of you who pack heavy, cut that number in half. Or more), and it comes with either a shoulder strap that can clip off, or backpack style straps that zip up easily if you opt not to use them. There's also a handy compartment that separates your clothes (ie dirty vs clean; or for the outdoorsy types, "town garb from climbing gear"). And while it doesn't have built-in padding for laptops, it's big enough to fit a 17" in a soft case.
Anyone else have any great carry-on bags that have withstood the travel test?
