FINDING BAG OPTIONSStep1: Volume is your first filter criteria. Understand how big a bag you need. Put the stuff you will be taking into another bag to get a sense of the volume your gear takes. This will let you hone in on a subset of the list really quickly.
Step 2: Filter on some key features. Do you need to carry a laptop? Do you absolutely need a shoe area? Do you prefer a particular style of opening? Do you prefer a longer taller bag, or a wider bag?
Step 3: You should now have a short-list for you to do your own research.
Step 4: Enjoy your travel. With one bag!

Remember, onebagging is a way of travelling to allow you to better experience the place you're visiting. A bag is simply a means to that end, it's not the end in itself.
