Carry-on

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/10)

This one is for my youngest headed off to college in a few weeks. These backpacks are durable and stylish.

However, if it has stains, you will need to wash it. While some are safe for washing in a machine, it's usually not recommended to put your backpack in a washer. Take a clean sponge, and mix some warm water with a mild detergent.

Zipper

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/6)

Bag is great, but the front pocket zipper is a bit had to zip and doesn't close all the way. Seems like maybe it is too close to seam of the fabric above it? Give my he cost of the bag I would have hoped for better. Otherwise it is good so far.

REI Co-op Beyonder Pack

(1/1)

The main difference is the design. Travel backpacks feature long zippers which allow them to fully open and give you the possibility to add something to the backpack or remove a thing you need without taking everything out. On the other hand, regular backpacks come with top openings, which makes it difficult to find what you need.

Size

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/7)

The bag seems too tall, and not deep enough (from front to back). I don't carry that much stuff, and I struggle to get it all to fit. The annoying part, is there's plenty of room on top of my stuff. It seems this space should be allocated to make the bag half an inch deeper

Then again, I'm 5-foot-11, and my torso is 21 inches. Wirecutter editor Tim Barribeau is 6-foot-3, but his torso is 17 inches. Hollie, one of our testers, is 5-foot-4, with a torso height 1 inch shorter than that of Carolina, who's 5-foot-2. REI has a guide on how to measure your torso height, if you don't know yours

Compartment

Timbuk2 The Division Pack

(1/7)

Look at all I could fit inside --Simple. No endless selection of pockets and pouches that break up the volume so much that you can't fit big things in it --Separate padded laptop compartment --Soft-lined tablet sleeve --Attached key ring --Simple selection of pockets on the interior. Just enough for a couple of pens, a charger, etc. --One large exterior compartment --Nicely ventilated in the back --Strong top handle CONS: --I could do without the compression buckles on the sides

Well-placed compartments allow you to keep separate electronics, clothes, and hygiene products, as well as keep dirty and clean clothes apart. In addition to this, it's a plus if your backpack has a few external pockets too, for example side pockets for keeping a water bottle or an umbrella close by.
