If I had a list of must-have items or essential items for my travels, I make sure I travel with one carryon luggage, and I couple that with a backpack. It’s important for the backpack to hold my laptop and have enough pockets for me to load my essentials (charging cables, noise-cancelling headphones, HydroFlask) and a few other items.

My Eddie Bauer 20L Stowaway Backpack (Amex Centurion Lounge – Houston)

One of my favorites is this backpack made by Eddie Bauer. It’s packable, inexpensive, bottomline, it works. I was able to pack this with my essentials, and the backpack fits under the airplane seat. When I’m not traveling, I use this around town as well. It’s part of my daily gear.

EDITED: It appears that the code FRESH is no longer valid as of Aug 28, Tuesday afternoon. The $15 price, IMO, is still a very good deal. That’s the price I actually paid when I bought mine 2-3 years ago. You could try and use a cashback portal (i.e., etc.) and you could find other ways to bring the price down.

I have two of these backpacks (a black and olive green color). I’ve traveled with these backpacks all over the world, and have not had an issue. For as low as $10.50, I couldn’t go wrong. Let me know if you plan on going for this deal. Good luck.
