8 reasons to buy The Travel Hack Backpack


I’m a big believer in packing as light as possible for travel. A bag of essentials and my passport are all that’s needed to get away. But finding that perfect backpack has always been a struggle. That is until The Travel Hack released her brand new backpack, perfect for the modern traveller.

I love to travel but I’m definitely not a confident traveller when alone. Find out why I’m scared to travel solo here.

8 reasons you need to get one:

1. Super stylish

Sleek, black and quilted with rose gold zips and a pink lining, it’s very trendy. The backpack looks expensive, quality and modern. And even has eco-leather detailing.

2. Opens like a suitcase

This was a huge selling point for me. I’d never seen anything like it before. You unzip the bag so the whole top peels back – called a clamshell opening. It makes packing a doddle and accessing your goods easy peesy.

3. Has a large capacity

Because of the way The Travel Hack Backpack opens and its thicker style, you get a mighty 20L to fill. This means I don’t have to be as brutal when packing. Official dimensions are 40x20x25cm.

4. Suitable for all airlines

We all know how annoying airlines are nowadays with hand luggage. If your bag is too big you will be charged to place it in hold. It’s very confusing but this backpack makes it a lot less stressful. It’s the perfect size for all airlines and you can just slide it under your seat.

5. Handy water bottle holder

It’s a simple addition but incredible useful, especially in the day and age where everyone carrys a waterbottle. I have a fairly large sized Chilly’s that slides in perfectly.

6. Find tonnes of pockets

Seriously, they’re everywhere. A front pocket for papers, top pocket for sunnies, 3D packing pockets in the main compartment and a sneaky back zip for your laptop. There’s a place for everything.

7. Pack your laptop

I often have my laptop so I can whip it out to do a bit of writing or TV watching. The Travel Hack Backpack snuggly fits up to 13 inch laptops in the back so its safe and sound.

8. It’s cheap as chips

Priced at only £30 It’s an absolute bargain when compared to other pieces of hand luggage.

The only thing I can think is missing is any obvious security feature but other than that, it’s pretty perfect. I can’t wait to take it on my next adventure. I’ll probably start using this as a daily backpack too as I love it so much.

Do you think you might invest in this backpack? Do you travel light?

    Looks like you’ve found your travel buddy 🙂 I like the inside pockets on this, very clever. I’ve always used Kånken, they’re the best for hiking, use as a sports bag and hand luggage.

      The 3D pockets are incredibly useful. I also love that one of the side pockets zips open so it fits wider bottles in! I’ve never heard of kanken! Xx
