Title: What Travel Backpack Do You Use?
Post by: Naftuli19 on May 09, 2019, 11:28:32 AM
I could not find a thread for this so i figured ill start one (@TimT if there is one send it fast so i can still delete this one ;))

I have been trying to find the perfect Travel Backpack with nice storage lots of compartments and easy to carry around and of course durable high quality etc..

So far ive ordered pretty cheap ones from Amazon, Costco but they all suck they were bulky broke fast and not very practical,
I came across Nomatic, they are very expensive but it looks like they covered every travelers dream of a travel bag, anyone have experience with it? what sizes? is it worth the $$$? and is there any thing similar for less?

I got it years ago on kickstarter.


what size?
40L iirc. Teffilin fit great in a side pocket which I love. So the whole main pocket can be other stuff.

I use eBags, have had it for years (flown at least 120+ segments with it)
As ya'll probably know, I spend most of each year traveling. I live out of my backpack. I only check in luggage when bringing kosher food to shluchim abroad.

Thanks for the suggestions! I'll probably wait for a AO and some other deals to combine for a better deal.

Trying to find a convenient backpack (ie personal item) that I can pair with a wheeled carry-on.  Is the Weekender too big to be considered a personal item?

Same here, but the strap broke on me twice. Now I carry a spare strap at all times

Definitely not, but they make a junior version, although Ive never seen how big it is

My teffilin fit in the side pocket, which is a big deal for chabad teffilin, not having to be in the main compartment.

That was a huge factor for me. Because my teffilin always took up so much room in the main area of the bag, now they take up none.
