When it comes to backpacks we’re always interested to hear about the hottest, newest designs, and are constantly amazed by the newest innovations and ideas which improve the ease of both travel, and everyday life.
And while we’ve been fans of CabinZero bags for a while, their newest bag on the product line is one that active city adventurers will be particularly interested in – the Urban Carry-On, specifically optimized for urban life!
7 Reasons the New CabinZero Urban Carry-On is Perfect for Active City Adventures!
#1 Huge Capacity
The Urban comes with a huge 42-litre capacity to fit everything you need for an active city lifestyle and regular travel. The zippers open like a real suitcase which makes it super easy to access your gear without any hassle.
Like others in the CabinZero range, there is an inside zipper / mesh pocket where the bag opens, and an elasticized opening which goes diagonally across from the top right corner, acting as a divider at the bottom of the bag. Otherwise it features a wide-open interior for maximum storage capacity, and if you’re looking to keep everything organized, CabinZero have their own range of packing cubes that fit perfectly inside the bag.
Whether you commute to work by bike and want to have an extra set of clothing or you travel on business and have to pack a suit for the evening event, the Urban lets you pack everything you need.
#2 Great Choice For Traveling Light
Built using Tarpaulin, the Urban is one of the most durable bags in the CabinZero range. Though considering its durability, and huge capacity, the Urban is still a lightweight bag weighing in at approximately 1300 grams.
It’s perfectly sized for cabin luggage, and fits into most airlines standard hand luggage dimensions of 55 x 40 x 20 cm. It’s a great choice for both short travel trips, or everyday use.
#3 Wear it 3 Different Ways
The CabinZero Urban has one of the most versatile carrying systems we’ve ever seen. It comes with hide-away, padded back straps, so you can wear it as a backpack, and there’s a handle on the top if you want to carry it by your side (remember, it’s super light).
But then there’s also a shoulder strap, which allows you to turn it into a messenger bag making it perfect to bike around the city or explore the countryside. Just hide the backpack straps away! (They have a zipper compartment which they collapse into).
Such a versatile carrying system makes it suitable for every kind of use, and a great fit for people with an active lifestyle who don’t want to compromise.
#4 Waterproof When Stuck in the Rain
One of our best pieces of advice for any type of travel is to check the weather forecast, but there are always exceptions to weather patterns, and I’m sure I’m not the only traveler to have been caught off guard by the rain!
And usually, when this happens, the priority is always keeping my bag dry – whether I have to stuff it under my shirt or cover it with the poncho I was planning on wearing myself. There are a lot of expensive electronics in there!
All CabinZero bags have great water resistance, but the Urban is the most waterproof bag yet. Due to its tarpaulin material, the bag repels water naturally, so when it comes to keeping your gear dry, this is the bag you want to be traveling with! Nothing is going to get wet.
#5 Stylish, Chic Design
Besides being durable, lightweight, with a huge capacity, and being waterproof, the Urban looks good too! The color is ‘absolute black’, and it’s a very stylish bag which naturally looks good in any business or leisure scenario.
It’s not decorated or elaborate, but has a sophisticated simplicity which really compliments urban life.
#6 Built in Global Luggage Tracker
Like all CabinZero bags, the Urban has a built-in global luggage tracker, powered by Okoban. So if you or the airplane company lose it, there will be a good chance you’ll get your Urban back.
That said, we obviously don’t want you to have to utilize this feature, and the biggest issue you’re likely to face as an active city adventurer is petty crime. So when you’re traveling, remember to be aware of your surroundings, and never leave your bag unattended … at any time.
If you’re enjoying a casual lunch, secure your bag by looping a strap around either your arm, leg or chair leg (the Urban has 3 different straps, so you have no excuse!). If it’s loose, it’s a target for theft. Especially when it looks this good! If you’re sleeping in public, on a train or at an airport, be sure to do the same.
#7 Lockable Zippers on Main Compartment
Another security feature of the Urban are lockable zippers on the main compartment (locks are not included). And I really appreciate this for a bag which has been designed with urban life in mind.
Remember, even a minor obstacle or inconvenience can be an effective deterrent for thieves. It’s not necessarily about making your bag impenetrable, but just less appealing than the next guys!
