Lockdown has not entirely been lifted but, for some of us, Level 1 means that we can travel by air once again. With so many camera bags to choose from, how do you know which is the best one for you? Looking through the endless options can be daunting, which is why we’ve selected the top six airline-friendly camera backpacks for 2020. These backpacks all comply with hand luggage size requirements, so you don’t have to worry about paying extra to check it in.
Best carry-on luggage size: Before we fly into the best options for you, let’s first have a look at in-flight hand luggage regulations. For both local and international flights, it is best to follow the International Air Transport Association (IATA) standard, which recommends not to exceed 56 (L) x 45 (W) x 25 (D) cm, including handles, side pockets and wheels. There is no standard carry-on size, so it is best to review the airlines you fly with most often and choose a size that works best for all of them.
