What to keep in mind while selecting travel bags

Always opt for padded backs and check if the backpack has a lot of storage space, say experts.

Sridhar Thirunakara, Founder and CEO, the bag brand Arctic Fox and Srikanth Thirunakara, Director of Outshiny, have suggested the following to keep in mind while choosing travel bags.

* Favourable storage: An old-fashioned backpack has a front pocket for quick access and then a king-sized empty space for whatever you want to keep in it. For some people, that's enough, but most of us prefer a little more orderliness. So, one should choose a bag with helpful storage slots and pockets which works best in every situation. A highly variant storage scheme compromises pockets and spaces of all shapes and sizes which are favourable.

*Multiple chambers: Buy a sleek yet spacious, durable carryon bag/backpack, with complex organisers so that you don't have to carry more than one travel bag. A good bag must have multiple compartments. This way, you can segregate your belongings and makes them easily accessible.

*Water-resistant fabric: Your pack does not need to be 100% waterproof but semi-waterproof so that everything doesn't get wet in a mizzle. The material should be thick but lightweight.
