About Bag

Packing can be a struggle for many especially if you are the type who feels everything is essential to bring. When you travel, there is a certain limit to the weight of what you can carry. The same holds true with your carry-on bag. 

A carry-on bag is an important part of traveling. This is the bag that you bring with you inside the airplane so you have to make sure that only necessities are packed to have a fun, safe, and enjoyable flight. 

Without further ado, here are the carry-on bag must-haves you must consider:

Essential Documents

Anything you deem is an essential must go in your carry-on bag. Make sure you pack your wallet, passport, ticket, cellphone, and all other necessary so you can be able to pull them out easily in case you need them. 


If you have jewelry, a camera, laptop, or other expensive items, always keep them close to you. There are many instances where articles are stolen from suitcases so if you don’t want to regret losing any valuables, add them in your carry-on must-have. 


It is important to keep your medications near you at all times. Pack your prescription medication or any medication you think you will need during your travel. You don’t want to discover that you lost it when you are already in your destination. 

Phone Charger

Phones are very essential these days. No one wants to get caught with a dead battery. Save yourself from that disaster and include it in your carry-on bag. It is better to be safe than sorry because our phones usually hold the handy information we need. 


Sometimes what the flight attendant offers just doesn’t cut it. Make sure your tummy is well-satisfied with snacks that are good to go. Give yourself that extra energy boost because traveling can be draining. 

Collapsible Water Bottle 

Hydration is key when you fly. Stay hydrated with your very own collapsible water bottle. After going through the security, you can fill it up and it is handier since you can collapse it when not in use.
