If you’ve tried dragging a suitcase with cheap plastic wheels over the cobblestone streets of Paris, you know why rolling luggage doesn’t work in a city.
Cylinder-shaped packs for "backpackers" aren't much better. Since you pack them from the top, like a garbage bag, they leave your stuff a jumbled mess. They're also too big to be carried onto a plane, so you’re stuck with checked bag fees, the hassle of baggage claim, and the stress of lost luggage.
The Setout travel backpack packs like a suitcase and carries like a backpack.
The 35L is a maximum-sized international carry on. The 45L is a maximum-sized US carry on. Always check with your airline's carry on rules before flying.
