Backpacks – hand luggage on planes and all-rounders in everyday life
Do you appreciate the advantages that a backpack offers you when traveling? Your hands are free and the weight of your luggage is well distributed on your back. Backpacks impress with their versatility not only when traveling, but also in everyday life. Backpacks show their strengths both as additional and as sole hand luggage. If they are loaded too heavily, they can also be checked in as checked baggage.
Finding the right hand luggage for the various airline regulations is not that easy. In our tips you will find out what you should pay attention to when choosing a backpack, what added value backpacks offer you and which of our backpacks is best for which airline.
To be on the safe side, you should always check with the airline before departure to see whether the regulations have changed again.

Backpacks – the advantages of everyday hand luggage
Compared to a suitcase, a backpack as hand luggage offers two main advantages:
- With a backpack you have more space compared to a hand luggage trolley, as the wheels and handles are also taken into account in the suitcase dimensions.
- As soft luggage, backpacks are more flexible than suitcases and therefore fit more easily into the testing device at the airport.
In case you would also like to use your backpack in everyday life, you can choose between different designs. From business backpacks to daypacks to sporty trekking backpacks - the selection and the respective features are simply huge.
If you primarily use the backpack as hand luggage for a specific airline, the size also largely determines its everyday use.
If you mainly use your backpack on the way to work, university, school or sport, you have to make sure when buying your ticket whether the luggage dimensions meet the regulations if you only choose one model
If you need large carry-on luggage, you can of course use all blnbag backpacks from our range. In the following breakdown by size and airline you will find the backpacks that meet the respective regulations.
Backpacks – when hand luggage becomes checked luggage
If your backpack is too heavy, does not meet the specified dimensions or if a large piece of luggage is no longer available for the flight, it will not be allowed into the cabin. It must be checked in as checked baggage. There are a few things to consider.
For some airlines this is not possible at all, for others a backpack only counts as bulky luggage. If you booked your ticket without luggage, it can be expensive at the airport. The straps and loops mean that the backpack can easily become tangled and damaged when transporting it to and from the plane.
Taking this risk, you should remove all items from outside pockets that are not closed, pull all straps and straps tight, close them and hide or knot them as best as you can. You should try to protect sensitive contents with good packing skills. Backpack covers provide additional protection. You can also wrap your backpack in foil or a large garbage bag (it is best to cut out the carrying handle) to protect it better. A name tag on the handle of the backpack is mandatory.
The backpack will also serve you well on this adventure, if it is made of strong, durable material and you have well secured straps.
