    If you’re a notorious over-packer like me, traveling with just a carry-on suitcase instantly causes anxiety. However, with the recent airline turmoil, it’s a much better alternative than arriving at your destination without your luggage. As I began to mentally prepare myself to pack only the outfits I will actually wear, I also started researching the best methods to maximize the tight space.

    That’s when I discovered Bellroy, a travel products company that produces stylish, versatile bags from sustainable materials. As I tend to be a little hard on my bags and use them forever, I love that their products all come with a 3 year warranty to cover materials and craftsmanship. Many are also constructed with water-resistant material for added protection against the elements of travel and easy cleaning.

    I needed a new travel backpack to store my laptop and flight essentials. Also, since my next trip will include both hiking and swimming, I wanted a few packable bags to take with me. I found all of the above, plus a few extras, thanks to Bellroy! Here are my favorite Bellroy bag combinations to make your future cabin trips easier.

    Bellroy Transit Plus Backpack

    Buy now $299

    This stylish backpack is an absolute lifesaver to accompany my main suitcase. Everyone knows how frustrating it can be to rush through the TSA while trying to get your laptop out of your bag, kick off your shoes, and keep track of all the important documents. The Transit Backpack Plus has a padded quick-access pocket to securely store your computer, as well as plenty of hidden external pockets to store your passport, tickets and even a water bottle. The interior features a flat mesh pocket and compression straps to keep clothes organized and wrinkle-free. The water-resistant and durable recycled Dura nylon material ensures this is a backpack that will be your travel partner for many years to come.

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Ability: 38L

    Color options: Nightsky, Black, Ranger Green

    Guarantee: 3 years

    Bellroy Venture Strap

    Buy now $135

    Since my next hikes aren’t expert level, I don’t expect to need a backpack full of supplies. That’s why I immediately fell in love with the Venture Sling! This bag rests on your back and features a wide, comfortable shoulder strap for easy all-day carry. The deceptively compact external view hides the incredible amount of storage inside. One can easily fit a jacket in the main compartment, as well as snacks, a cell phone and a standard size water bottle. The sling also has zippered front pockets to store smaller items for quick access. Lastly, it’s padded on the back and bottom, allowing me to walk around without worrying about damaging the contents inside.

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Ability: 9L

    Color options: Midnight, Navy Nightsky, Basalt, Ranger Green, Bronze

    Guarantee: 3 years

    Bellroy’s Weekend

    Buy now $269

    If you prefer a messenger-style bag to a backpack, the Bellroy Weekender is a great option. This 30L size can carry almost as much as the Transit Backpack Plus, but features carry straps and a removable storage strap for optimal comfort. Like the backpack, the Weekender has plenty of padded laptop sleeve and plenty of external and internal organizational zippered pockets. The water resistant bag is fitted with a ‘tool belt’ to ensure that all pockets are zipped at the same height so nothing gets lost at the bottom. It lives up to its name and offers enough storage to be your main bag for a weekend.

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Ability: 30L

    Color options: Black, Lunar

    Guarantee: 3 years

    Bellroy Tokyo Tote Bag

    Buy now $189

    If you’re looking for something a little smaller but super functional, check out this water resistant Tokyo 20L Totepack. It’s the perfect tote to throw in your carry-on and use on your travels (or fill with souvenirs for the flight home)! When empty, it packs flat and is unassuming. However, the incredible amount of internal pockets (including a secure laptop sleeve), easy-access front pockets and two pop pockets make this an easy transition to complete your carry-on.

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Ability: 20L

    Color options: Marine, Limestone, Bronze, Slate,

    Guarantee: 3 years

    Bellroy toiletry bag

    Buy now $55

    While researching my new travel bag mates, I came across this chic toiletry bag and realized it was time to finally retire my existing 15-year-old toiletry bag (yikes). My existing bag is just a zippered pouch and it’s impossible to keep my toiletries organized while traveling. The Bellroy kit solves this annoying problem with multiple internal mesh pockets, so you can separate items. and find them easily. It even has a toothbrush sleeve with a magnetic closure to keep the bristles from touching anything unsavory. The flexible, water-resistant bag is the perfect size to throw in your carry-on.

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Dimensions: 8.6″ x 5.1″ x 2.8″

    Color options: Black, Bronze, Navy, Slate

    Guarantee: 3 years

    Bellroy Lite Tote

    Buy now $65

    This bag was another one that I necessary, even though I didn’t know I needed it at first. The Bellroy Lite Tote is a great packable bag that’s easy to roll into a carry-on and use once you’ve arrived at your destination. This lightweight tote is so cute and versatile that I plan to use it as both a handbag and a beach bag. One of my biggest gripes with normal beach bags is that they usually don’t have a zipper, but the Lite Tote has a full-length zipper to protect the contents inside. It also includes an interior zippered pocket to securely store keys or travel documents. Plus, the ripstop outer material is made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles, so you can feel good about wearing an eco-friendly accessory!

    TSA Approved: Yes

    Ability: 15L

    Color options: Shadow, Copper, Frost

    Guarantee: 3 years
