Standard Luggage Carry-On Backpack Review

Today we will share our review of a backpack that may be useful for your next trips. Standard Luggage Carry-On Backpack is the ultimate travel backpack for your trips. It’s a great backpack because it has different compartments that will help you organize your stuff. It’s also the most important feature for Rachel and I because we move around all the time so it’s the first thing we check when choosing a backpack.

It should also fit as a hand luggage in all flight companies, like in Ryanair which is very strict about this. For us, it’s also a main thing as we always bring our stuff in a hand luggage such as documents, laptops, travel gear, etc. We love to have split compartments to find our things easily. Standard Luggage’s Carry-On Backpack has 12 minimalist but cute designs for you to collect.

Standard Luggage Carry-On Backpack Review

Standard Luggage Carry-on is a 3-in-1 backpack, suitcase and shoulder bag. As we mentioned earlier, it has different compartments. Backpack straps to organize your luggage where you can separate your laptop, toiletries and clothes is perfect backpack for Digital Nomads like us. We consider backpacks which can carry 35-45 liters because that  is perfect for a backpack. Otherwise, it could be overloaded and too heavy in our opinion.

What we love about the backpack is because it’s water resistant, so when we spend the day taking pictures in cities like Paris, Madrid or destinations like Algarve as we did in our recent 3 months trip in Europe, you will not be worried if the rain surprises you because all the devices will be protected inside.

You can use the backpack for moving around the city, like if you spend the day outside and are bringing travel gear to take pictures. You won’t have to worry because you can carry your gear in this backpack, like what we always do. It’s a versatile backpack that you can also carry it in the middle of the day when you feel like going to a coffee shop for relaxing or for work. In our case, we go to coffee shops for work.

What we love more about the backpack

It’s handy and the compartments make it easy to find your things when you are in a hurry. You can bring documents, laptop and all your important belongings in your carry-on. Rachel likes the black and orange design because it won’t catch any dark stains and it also looks like brand new even though you have used it many times.

Something to add to the backpack

According to Rachel, the design is cool already but she would love to see more colors like purple or red just to have more choices for backpackers. And obviously, wheels! Yes nowadays, wheels make more everything more comfortable and easier. You could even add more weight for your trips without being worried about this.


This backpack is perfect for traveling around cities like we mentioned, especially for a short trips in Europe. It is definitely the perfect one! If you are planning for more adventure trips around Southeast Asia, it may be a little bit not suitable but you can also carry it if you’d like!
