“The backpack is soft, lightweight, and has the capacity to hold so much”
If you want to save time and money on your next flight by packing efficiently, consider grabbing this travel backpack while it’s marked down at Amazon.
The Vancropak Carry-On Travel Backpack functions as both a backpack and a carry-on suitcase. So instead of hauling your luggage to your gate or paying extra money to check it (and then waiting to retrieve it at baggage claim after landing), you can consolidate your belongings in one roomy “personal item” that’s easy to carry and stow. And thanks to double discounts, it’s on sale for as little as $36 right now — a steal considering carry-on suitcases can easily run you $100.

Made of water-resistant material, the backpack measures 20 inches long, 14 inches wide, and 7 inches deep — and it expands for extra capacity. According to shoppers, the backpack can fit both under the seat and in the overhead bin. The main compartment offers plenty of space and a pocket to neatly pack clothing, shoes, toiletries, and accessories. And it has elastic bands to keep everything in place.
It has a 180-degree zipper, so unlike a typical backpack, it opens up like a suitcase. Plus, it has three front zipper pockets to easily access a wallet, passport, keys, and more small travel essentials.
There are several ways to comfortably tote the bag. It has two padded shoulder straps with mesh paneling that lets you go hands-free and carry it on your back. Or, the straps can be tucked into the back mesh panel, so you can hold it with the top handle or the side handle.
More than 3,000 shoppers have given the backpack a five-star rating, calling it “spacious,” “durable,” and “a must for travelers” in reviews. One shopper shared, “I wanted something I could carry around on my back, but could still use as a carry on for the plane — this fits the bill perfectly.” They also wrote, “It has plenty of pockets.”
Another customer shared, “The backpack is soft, lightweight, and has the capacity to hold so much,” and raved, “It is the perfect travel backpack.” And a third user wrote, “I packed seven change of clothes, two pairs of shoes, and toiletries with space to spare.”
