Cabin Zero the perfect carry on bag?

Cabin Zero the perfect carryon bag?

Sharing is caring!

Looking for a new carry on? I have had my Cabin Zero backpack for 2 months now and I’m a little bit in love! I had been looking for a new functional carry one that I could double up as my day pack and this is the winner.

Size is everything

The Cabin Zero bags come in 2 sizes. A Large 44L or a small 28L. Now as much as I wanted to get the 44L with my 60L hiking backpack I thought it would be a bit much walking round with a 44L on my front!

The 28L is perfect for me. I use the backpack for 2 things, as a carry on while I’m flying (which is a lot) and as a work day pack while I’m out and about. It works perfectly for both.Although a side holder for my water would make this bag even more perfect. It’s pretty much the one thing that lets it down as a day pack. That said it’s not actually sold as a day pack, more as a carry-on. However, as a backpacker, everything I take with me has to have multi-functions.

As my carry one, I load it up with my electronics and anything else I can’t fit in my check-in so it can weigh a fair amount. The padded straps mean the weight isn’t uncomfortable (good job cabin zero). It’s even fine as a front pack, which I have to use it as when I’m on the move!

Then as a day pack, It normally has my laptop, camera, rain jacket and anything else I may need for the day.

I’ve also used it on a few adventures! Like horse riding in Costa Rica at Mistico Park!


The backpack comes in a lot of colors, it was not easy to decide on yellow! But I liked the idea of having a backpack that’s a bit brighter. I’m really happy with the color, my only issue is keeping it clean! Using it every day it picks up a lot of dirt. Good job it’s machine washable!


Things I love about this backpack

  • The size is perfect for me to go with my big checked in hiking backpack. If you get the 44l size it is the perfect size for your carry on.
  • It also works well as a day pack and a work bag for my digital nomad office. It has some seriously thick padded shoulder straps, which really help with the weight I carry!
  • The color and look of the bag is great, the extra padded straps are also a big win for me
  • Inside the bag, there is a compartment for my laptop plus 2 zip pockets that I use to store my chargers, first aid kit and any other smaller items I keep in my carry on.
  • The size clips are perfect for me to attach my yoga mat! I know they may not be meant for that but I love that I can do this!
  • It has a Built-in Global Tracker, powered by Okoban. That means if you lose it you can just go online and find out where it is.
  • If you like them on Facebook you get a 25-year warranty!

  1. Interesting post. I’m in the market for a new daypack and this looks like it would do the trick nicely… was so keen on the yellow too until I read about it getting dirty a lot – might have to get it in another colour.

    1. Yes I wish I had chosen a darker color now. I do love the yellow but I use this pack every day and so a darker color would have been better.

  2. What a practical backpack! I really like the colour, it sounds like something every traveller needs. I would probably go for the bigger one though, lots of camera equipment to carry around! 🙂

    1. I kind of wish I had the bigger one…I was just a bit worried as I already have a 70ltr on my back haha

  3. I’ve been looking for a new backpack and this seems perfect! I love the tracker, how cool to be able to track its whereabouts if you lose it/it’s stolen. Thanks for sharing, I’ve researched so much but have never heard of this one!

    1. I think the tracker is one of the things I love the most about it!

  4. The Cabin Zero pack looks perfect for not only on the plane but also when you’re on a bus or train etc… and to hold your important items like electronics. As you show, they are perfect for horse riding, I could have done with one when I was horse riding in Mexico. It’s good how they offer different sizes and colours, I think I’d go for green.

    1. I think green would be a great choice! I normally carry a lot of weight around because of my laptop so the straps being so cushioned are perfect.

  5. I keep hearing good things about Cabin Zero bags. I think I’ll have to look into getting one as even if I don’t manage to go carry-on every time I go away it looks useful as a day pack too. Plus I need lots of storage for kid snacks and nappy changes on the go! I also like how they come in bright colours – yellow is a good choice!

    1. I do love my yellow pack, even if I am a dirt magnet hahah.

  6. This really does sound like a great day pack. I love that it’s sturdy, has padded straps and is machine washable. I think I would also choose a bright colour like the one you have! So washing would be important. My day pack is almost on it’s last journey (as I too use it as a mobile office, with laptop etc)… so this cabin zero pack seems like a great replacement.

    1. I’m so pleased with it 🙂

  7. Cabin Zero bag looks perfect for hikers and travellers. I love yellow colors. I am going to like it on facebook to avail 25 years warranty

    1. The warrantee, bright colours and the tracking tag are huge bonuses!

  8. I actually began to ditch handbags for backpacks! They are so practical and I love the look of this one. I would probably need the bigger one for all my cameras! It looks sturdy and could cope with traveling lots.

    1. I have a handbag I love but it hardly gets used these days. I’m much more of a backpack girl! I like having all my things with me and my handbag hardly fits anything in…looks pretty though!

  9. Backpacks from cabin zero are so amazing. 🙂 They are must have travel buddy and perfect for all types of travelers.. I hope I could get one myself and be able to bring them in my travel and adventures.

  10. This looks like the perfect day pack! I love the variety of colors it comes in. It looks quite sturdy too – perfect for hikes and other outdoor adventures.

    1. It’s great! My only fault with it is it doesn’t have a water bottle holder 🙁
