If you ever been to Europe one thing you’ll be amazed at is how easy it is to move around from city to city, and even, from country to country. Really, you can get away with doing miles upon miles of tourism without even having a car.
Touring and traveling around Europe for whatever reason can be a blissful experience if you have the right equipment for the task. And by equipment, I mean a really nice, easy to handle carry-on bag that allows you to easily move from point A to B in the old continent with little physical effort to carry it comfortably with you. Now, not all carry-on bags are made equal, and in our list, we make sure to include only the best ones for you.
#1 Osprey Farpoint 40
The Farpoint 40 is the maximum carry on size for most airlines. I love this bag as it comes in Male and Female designs, is lightweight and comfortable to carry. Being front opening, instead of top loading, makes it easy to pack and unpack. You can use it as a backpack, or zip away the straps to turn it into a hand-held bag. I have never had any issues with this bag and I think it’s the best backpack ‘ve ever owned.
