Happy April Fools Day!
I’ve reviewed a lot of bags here. However I’ve always been looking for the perfect backpack, one that’s lightweight, yet durable. A bag thats well designed and comfortable no matter what you pack into it. Today, we’re taking a look at perhaps one of the best contenders for an ultra lightweight carry on that meets these requirements.
So this is the Jansport Lil Break which features a spacious 0.5L capacity and weighs just 56 grams or 2 oz. Even though it has a compact design I was able to fit a lot into the bag as you can see here. I can fit my fully packed clothing cube, laptop and toiletries with plenty of room to spare. Unfortunately there is no water bottle pocket on the outside of the bag but my favourite Vapur bottle has a built in carabiner so I can clip it on the outside of the bag.
It terms of comfort its straps are a little thin but even fully packed I found it comfortable for wearing out and about. You can use it for both a day bag or a one bag for all your trips because its so versatile. It even has elastic loops on the back so you can even wear it on your belt if you wanted to get creative. You could technically wear it on your wrist too.
The bag is very well made and durable and it has a lot of great features to make it a great option as your one and only bag for carry on travel. One of my favourite features is the built in umbrella which automatically deploys when it senses water. So you don’t have to worry about the bag getting wet.
Another great thing about this backpack is the affordable price. It comes in at just US$18 (about AU$30 in Australia) and it comes in a very wide variety of colours and different patterned options. I have the black one here but you can see there’s quite a lot more colour options online. Overall this is one of the best backpacks I’ve ever reviewed and I will be using this for all my future trips. It has great features and colour options and is super lightweight and durable with a very spacious interior.
