City

Explore the magical trace of the city skyline, duck through the alleys in search of a local cafe, or a hidden gem of a museum shop waiting to be discovered. The daily hubbub and public commute can be energizing for some, and there’s a certain comfort and solidarity in knowing that the city never sleeps. It's in cities like these that we appreciate the metropolis for all its connectedness.

Essentials

Best Backpack


The CabinZero is our top pick for an easy, city trip. We picked it because it's the lightest option, and it's minimal but spacious opening works great with packing cubes so you can maximize your luggage or shopping space. It's carry-on approved, which means no lost luggage. Practitioners of one-bag carry will be familiar with the joy of zipping straight off the plane to that landmark.

 

Best Packing Cubes


Packing cubes help you stay organized, and by that measure help you save space. We picked the Acteon Compression Packing Cubes because they have separate clean and used compartments, and an additional compression zipper to tighten things up. A close and popular contender is the Vago Vacuum Compression Bags, which works great if you have winter clothes or lots of shopping.

Best Daypack


Anti-theft carry is useful and top of mind for most city travelers, and we felt it made most sense to have that functionality take the form factor of a Daypack that you actually use to roam around the city. The Freedom Pack has clever side access pockets for your phone and wallet, removing the need of taking off one's bag in order to access your essentials. Other good day-carry options include the Alpaka Air Sling, and the Peak Design Sling (available in both 5L and 10L sizes).

SIM Cards


City exploration can be great with or without data. If you're going for the with-data option, we recommend getting a SIM Card beforehand so you can skip the hassle of airport queues. You'll be synced even before you pass through immigration!
