Mei Voyageur

Review

Having been on sale for over 40 years, the Voyageur is the grandfather of the modern travel backpack. You can tell why this bag has been on sale for so long because the price is reasonable, the features are robust, and the bag is well made.

Cubes Required

Packing cubes are a must with this carry on because there is nothing built in to help with organization. Almost everything has to go in the main compartment, so it's up to you to organize to keep items separated. Some people find the freedom to pack how they want liberating, and others will miss built-in barriers between sections.

Even without packing cubes the MEI is a solid choice for one-bagging because of the longevity of the company. A lot of one-bag carry-on companies have only been around in business for a few years. The Mei Voyageur, on the other hand, has been around since 1973 so you know they won't go out of business just when you have a problem and need to use your warranty.

The bag also comes with compression straps to squish your packed items down and also has a small duffle strap for when you need duffle mode. The material your typical Cordura which should be able to withstand a lot of punishment.
