Our Thoughts

Greetings, fellow travelers! Sit back, relax, and let's talk about carrying less while exploring more. Our trusted companion in this minimalist travel journey is none other than the Bellroy Apex Backpack. This 1.4-pound champion of light-weightedness holds an impressive 26 liters of carry-on essentials, while measuring just 20 inches tall, 33 inches wide and 55 inches deep. It snugly fits within the carry-on regulations of most airlines. Not to mention, the Apex is both stylish and sturdy, being crafted from durable Recycled Baida Nylon and premium, eco-certified leather. You could practically hug a bear with this one (but I wouldn't recommend testing it out).
