With the AmazonBasics Slim Carry on Travel backpack, Amazon takes a shot at offering a stylish yet functional travel backpack for those who need a reliable carry-on for flights. Our first thoughts when coming across the AmazonBasics Slim Carry On Backpack was that it was a noble competitor to the popular eBags Professional Weekender at almost half the price.
The AmazonBasics Slim Carry On Backpack comes in two sizes; the overnight version which we review here and the slightly larger weekender version.
What we like
Tons of useful organizers and pockets. Great for organizing work, tech and personal items.
Stylish yet understated design. Can be used for both business and personal use.
For the price, we are impressed with the quality. The materials and construction compete with more expensive travel bags.
What we don’t like
Clips that hold the shoulder straps in place are made of cheap plastic. Not sure how they will hold up over time.
Main “suitcase” compartment really can’t hold more than a change of clothes. If you need more room than go with the AmazonBasics Weekender version.
