Carry-on

Bellroy Transit

(1/4)

Plus, we’ve found that one layer of packing cubes will still give you easy access to the rest of the pockets on the bag.

Bellroy Transit Backpack

(1/3)

With its unstructured silhouette and a lack of extraneous external detailing, the Transit doesn’t look like a travel bag — which (in this case) is a very good thing, as it helps to break the mold without sacrificing its usefulness or losing touch with its original intended purpose. It’s a bit larger than many of the other bags that made our best EDC backpacks guide, but it still falls within the sizing regulations for international carry-on bags — which is also hugely beneficial because, even fully loaded, this bag qualifies for in-cabin carry (be that under the seat in front of you or in the overhead bin). It’s a bit more unstructured than other travel-focused backpacks, and that might be considered a knock against it in some circles because it makes the gear, equipment, and apparel inside a bit more susceptible to being knocked around, bur careful packers will have no issue.

Compartment

Bellroy Transit

(1/5)

Speaking of the main compartment, it’s pretty roomy on the Bellroy Transit Backpack. You can easily fit one medium-sized Peak Design packing cube along with one small Peak Design packing cube, (you ask we test it).

, And then you have this bigger mesh compartment. Here that goes over the entirety of the top flap of the bag.. That's gon na be great for storing things like socks and underwear and other small items

Strap

Bellroy Transit

(1/4)

At the end of the shoulder straps, you’ll find smooth aluminum strap adjusters, which glide easily. We also dig the soft seatbelt-like material at the bottom of the straps.

We have a very adjustable sternum strap on this rail-like design, here., And you can remove it if you bring this to the very top it'll just slide right off. Quite easily.

Commute

Bellroy Transit

(1/1)

Well-padded shoulder straps, a ventilated mesh back panel, and a magnetic sternum strap allow easy transit when you’re loaded up with the Transit. Would I take this on a 15-mile hike? No, that’s not what it’s meant for. But it’s handled mile after mile of city streets without me even batting an eye. The ventilated back panel shouldn’t be underestimated here – once you’ve loaded up your backpack for travel, it can be pretty weighty

Zipper

Bellroy Transit

(1/3)

Locking zippers, like on the Weekender Plus and Flight Bag would be excellent; I think that should be a necessity on a travel bag. Internally, the bag could benefit from a few zippered mesh pockets along the side wall. I think that would elevate the organization of both clothing (think belts, socks, toiletries) and EDC. These aren’t deal-breakers by any stretch of the imagination, but there is always room for improvement! Verdict With the Transit line, Bellroy is making travel simpler – just as I found with the Weekender Plus

. The lay-flat YKK zipper here is a nice touch. And it really stays low-profile and out of the way.
