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 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 …

Here we’ll review the Eagle Creek Pack-It Wallaby Organizer and some other options for those who carry a full set of cosmetics and toiletries while travelling. We pooled wisdom of a few long-term digital nomads, including especially women, who have somewhat larger arsenals of grooming products, soaps, and cosmetics that they carry for months on …

A selection of small toiletry bags that we have tested We got a bit obsessed with researching toiletry bags. That’s because we’ve blown through lots of crummy ones in our decades of constant travel. Standard bags leak, fall apart, and aren’t much better than a plastic ziplock bag. We’re thus delighted to have found one …

A selection of lightweight minimalist toiletry bags that we have tested What’s the best minimalist toiletry bag? It depends a bit on what you mean by “minimalist”—we’ve experimented in our constant travels with both solutions for simplicity in design and for travelling very light. Be warned that the solutions we review here are not for …
