When I travel, I never check a bag. I bring as little as possible and pack as efficiently as possible. To do this, I need to be organized and optimize packing space. While searching for a new backpack to fit all of my travel needs, I found Standard Luggage and they’ve become such a staple in my travel packing that I wanted to share them with you. All of Standard Luggage’s products are designed to work together as the ultimate travel system. Their backpack is designed to meet airline size rules so people can save time and money without the need to check their bags while still maximizing carrying capacity. Their packing cubes and packable daypack are designed to be used inside the carry-on backpack to keep gear organized and space optimized. The ultimate travel system works great for weekend trips, road trips, and international travel. Here’s what we love about it.
The Ultimate Travel System
Standard’s Carry-on Backpack
Standard’s Carry-on-sized travel backpack is the ultimate luggage for international travel and meets airline cabin rules. The bag is a 3-in-1 travel backpack, suitcase, and shoulder bag. It comes with concealable backpack straps, compartment dividers, and easy-to-carry handles.
My favorite part of the backpack is the laptop compartment that protects my laptop yet it still gives me easy access to the laptop so I can take it out during security checks and slide it back into the protective sleeve when I’m finished.
I also love the full-perimeter zipper that allows for easy opening and packing and the two convenient front pockets fit documents and small items like my phone and charger.
Additionally, it comes with compression straps to maximize space and keep contents secured. Cord travels with a CPAP machine and traveled with a separate carry-on for years because he couldn’t fit it securely into his backpack. Now, with Standard’s Carry-on Backpack, he can fit the CPAP machine, his computer and electronics, and his clothes into one, carry-on sized backpack. The removable hip belt adds stability and weight distribution when it is the only bag we are carrying.
Standard’s Packing Cubes (3pcs set)
Standard’s Packing Cubes fit nicely into the backpack to create the ultimate travel system. Efficiency is important when we’re traveling so we stay organized with packing cubes. The cubes allow for coupling each cube to form a hanging dresser that can be placed on a door hook or closet hanger so I never really unpack. They are durable, modular, and lightweight with mesh windows to easily see content.
I like to pack everything I need for one day in each packing cube and keep them in my carry-on backpack so I know I’ll never have to check a bag.
On our recent trip to Valcartier Bora Parc, we packed our bathing suits in one packing cube and just brought the packing cube with us to the water park. It was so much easier than lugging a large backpack and perfect for separating our damp suits at the end of the day.
Standard’s Backpack Packing Cube | Packable Daypack
My favorite part of the ultimate travel system is the Backpack Packing Cube. It’s a smart design that allows me to pack my clothes like a traditional packing cube or transform it into an 8L backpack with enough room for a camera, a light jacket, my phone, and other small additional gear. It has a small outside pocket for keys, money, and my phone and I find it so practicable that I use it as a purse or day-bag even when I’m not traveling.
Standard Luggage has created the ultimate travel system for day trips, road trips, and local and international travel. Their system meets all of the carry-on travel regulations while giving you the most space in a practical way. From a weekend ski and skating getaway to Lake Placid to longer international trips overseas, Standard Luggage is a great fit for our travel needs.
