How to choose a bag that is right for you when traveling.

Traveling can be an exciting and enriching experience, but it can also be stressful and chaotic, especially if you are not well-prepared. Having the right bag can make all the difference when it comes to having a comfortable and stress-free journey. Whether you are taking a weekend trip or a month-long adventure, a good travel bag can help you stay organized and make the most of your travels.

Key factors to consider when choosing a travel bag:


The size of your travel bag should match the length of your trip and the amount of gear you need to bring with you. A smaller bag is better for a weekend trip, while a larger bag may be necessary for a longer journey. Consider the weight of your luggage, too, as some bags can be quite heavy when fully packed.


Choose a bag that is built to last. Look for bags made from high-quality materials, that have sturdy zippers. A bag with reinforced seams and a padded bottom will help protect your gear and keep it safe during transit. Merino Wool Felt is one of the strongest fibers in the world. It is also naturally moisture wicking and stain resistant.


It's important to choose a bag with plenty of pockets, compartments, and other organizational features. This will help you keep your essentials within easy reach, so you can focus on enjoying your travels.


A good travel bag should be comfortable to carry, even when fully loaded. Look for bags with padded shoulder straps, ergonomic handles, and adjustable straps, so you can adjust the bag to fit your body and distribute the weight evenly.

With so many travel bags to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start. 

The best travel bags to consider:


Backpacks are a popular choice for travelers, especially those who prefer hands-free travel. Look for backpacks with adjustable shoulder straps, a padded back panel, and plenty of compartments to keep your gear organized.

Travel Totes:

Commuter Bags: 

These are the classic option for traveling. Commuter bags are bigger than a backpack or tote but still small enough to easily take with you on any trip. They are simple, versatile, and easy to pack, making them a great choice for short trips or when you need to pack a lot of gear.

No matter what type of travel bag you choose, it is important to invest in a high-quality product that will last. A good travel bag should be durable, comfortable, and functional, helping you make the most of your travels and minimizing stress along the way.
