Air travel can be a huge pain, however necessary it is to get to where you want to go. But it can be made a hell of a lot easier simply by choosing the right carry-on bag. And Aer’s Travel Pack 2 might just be the best that was ever built.
Made from super sturdy and naturally water-resistant 1680D Cordura ballistic nylon, this carry-on-sized weekender can stand up to all measure of punishment while still looking sharp. But it isn’t just its appearance and durability that makes it special. It also features a generous 33 liters of internal space spread out between a large clamshell-opening main compartment, a 15.6″ laptop pouch, externally-accessible quick-access zippered pouches for smaller items (like your passport and boarding pass), and there’s even a separate and ventilated shoe compartment (which fits up to a men’s size 13). As an added travel-friendly bonus, the Travel Pack 2 also has suitcase-style carry straps, padded backpack straps and a padded back panel, and attachment points for a removable hip belt. Pick one up for $230.
