And since minimalism is always our goal, our first recommendation is to check our article on the best rolling carry-on backpacks. If you can’t travel quite that light (or if you’re packing for two or more), the full-sized rolling backpacks might be for you.

It rolls! But it’s a backpackers’ pack! And it’s also small enough to be a carry-on! This combination of features is what I’ve found absolutely ideal for my nomadism; I’ve travelled constantly with one small rolling backpack or another for the past decade. I have also been updating this article for several years as we …

We’ve looked at every option out there for wheeled carry-on backpacks, and Eagle Creek pieces were close to the top, but not our top pick for most people. However, Eagle Creek has excellent, durable luggage and high brand satisfaction, and for some people, the Eagle Creek DoubleBack or the Eagle Creek Switchback International Carry-Ons could be …

We’ve been reviewing rolling travel backpacks for years, and so we were jazzed about the release of the Eagle Creek Expanse Convertible International Carry-On, and about comparing it to our favorite similar offering from Osprey, the Ozone Convertible 22″/50L. Eagle Creek is a trusted and reliable manufacturer of quality gear, and is known for its great …

As someone who for for more than a decade has basically lived out of various convertible rolling backpack carry-ons, I feel like I know what to look for when comparing them. So I recently took an interest in the Eagle Creek lineup of bags with both backpack straps and wheels that are small enough to …

I’m obsessed with lightweight travel and have been using Osprey packs and daypacks for years. I also think they’re very much worth recommending for school, hiking, outdoor sports, shopping, carrying gear for work, and more.

We’ve analyzed all available options as well as the reviews put out by consumer testing organizations, travel bloggers, and professional critics. This is more than just an obsessive research exercise; after 20-plus combined years of living around the world out of suitcases and …

We analyzed Osprey’s three full-size convertible (backpack/wheeled combo) luggage options to uncover the key functional differences and find out which pack is best for whom. Osprey’s own descriptions tend to be enthusiastic and vague, so it can be tricky to tease out which will serve you best, depending on how you travel. We’re here to clarify that. We highly recommend …

We spent weeks examining rolling laptop bags, and here are all of the top options designed for women — generally with the look and style of a purse, but big enough to carry a laptop, and with the lovely extra design feature that they can roll on wheels. These are solidly built pieces that hit …

I used the Osprey Aether 70L in the Semaphore Lakes area of British Columbia. It’s our top pick for longer treks, but would be overkill for shorter, weekend jaunts. Looking to choose the right backpack for overnight hikes or treks? I’m here to guide you with my 10+ years of backpacking experience in all kinds …

We’ve taken a thorough look at the rolling backpack options for teens ages 13 and up (and we have a recommendation for elementary-age kids too). Our main goal was to find the most durable and practical option to recommend for middle and high school use, as well as for short overnight trips. We looked at …
