AER Go Pack
Travel Bag Recommendations
All the bags you’ve mentioned (Minaal 3.0, Osprey Fairpoint and the Aer Travel Pack) are all going to be too big for day-to-day carrying imo. These are going to be more suitable for ‘true’ one bagging (ie when you travel without a checked bag). If you decide to opt against a checked bag, perhaps look at a packable day bag and one of your options above, or take a look at the Peak Design Travel Bag, as this is designed with photographers in mind, is effectively a big bucket of a bag, and can expand from 35-45l (although I think when expanded to the full 45l it is slightly too big for most airlines). For a daily carry, you ideally want to be looking at something 25l or less, even under 20l.
Dakine Mission 25L
Well made but double check measurements
I have this 4 stars only because I thought it would be slightly larger. It's really kinda small. Otherwise it's made very well, quality materials and stitching and looks great. It's just too small
