Her Packing List

Digital nomads and light packers will love this backpack as it gives you just enough space for anything from three days to three weeks. You could certainly use it for longer travels, depending on how much you want to bring (but just keep those straps in mind). I would definitely recommend this bag if you’re looking to go carry on only and want the look of a backpack with added versatility.
