PACKS FOR DIGITAL NOMADS

Discover the right packs for digital nomads and learn how other travellers are managing their luggage. Some prefer to go full-on minimal, others seem to want all the luxuries of home. I started my trip with an overly large backpack, but now I prefer to use rolling luggage (go team Samsonite), while all my electronics comes with me in my Venturesafe daypack.
