20 Best Carry On Backpacks 2017

I often see people asking which is the “best carry on backpack” they should get for one bag travel. I’m a big fan of the /r/onebag subreddit and in particular they have great advice and suggestions for travelling light. I put together this list with the suggestions of the redditors in that post and also including some of the most popular and most suggested bags for carry on. This list is sorted from lightest weight to heaviest. Unfortunately I haven’t had a chance to try out all of the bags on this list but if you have experience with them please leave a comment down below.
