Let’s face it, no one likes carrying around their backpack any more than they have to. It’s one thing to carry around your backpack while you’re out and about, but it can be not so fun lugging it around the airport. Now there’s a solution – a rolling backpack that meets carry-on restrictions.

Rolling backpacks come in all shapes in sizes and they typically fall into two categories. You have travel packs and book packs. Travel packs are larger than book packs and often come with a detachable daypack. When the going gets rough, simply convert your rolling backpack into a typical pack and you are good to go. Book packs are designed more as a school or work backpack with wheels.

Pros
All rolling backpacks sport some really cool travel features. The smaller, daypack style bags are typically built to meet carry-on restrictions of airplanes. So, if you are a light packer or just going on a short jaunt, this might be the perfect solution for you.

The really sweet features come out in the larger travel packs. These rolling travel packs are the swiss army knife of bags. They have all the features of a rolling backpack, but tend to have a detachable daypack built in. At first glance these travel packs may look to large to carry-on. But if you detach the daypack and wear it, the remaining part of the pack meets carry-on restrictions.

Cons
As long as a rolling backpack is going to fit your travel needs, I don’t really see anything wrong with them. Sure, there is some added weight, but that’s a sacrifice you make for portability.
