Deciding what to pack in your carry-on for the perfect trip can turn out to be quite the task. So long as you have The Game Theory at your side, you’ll have a TSA approved anti-theft backpack to keep your items safe. But figuring out what to fill your back with might not be nearly so obvious. The TSA makes it clear what items you can’t bring in your carry-on bag, so it’s up to you to figure out what is best for your trip. To help you travel smarter, we’ve listed five categories that might give you some ideas on what you should take that will make your flight as comfortable as possible. 


  • Electronics
  • Medications
  • Toiletries
  • Snacks
  • Battery Packs





    This often goes without saying, but it’s never a good idea to trust your fragile electronics in the hands of baggage handlers. Too many travelers have experienced the horrors of opening up their luggage to a destroyed laptop, tablet or other devices. To prevent any harm from coming to your precious valuables, keep them with you. There’s no need to worry when you’ve got the most secure backpack for travel. Our backpack has extra cushions specifically made to keep your electronics from harm. The separate laptop pocket features a strap for drop protection. You might still have to remove your laptop into a separate bin, but you’ll have a backpack that’s 100% TSA approved when lying flat.

    If you have any specific health needs that require packing important medications, you will definitely want them in your carry-on. If your checked-in bag were to get lost in transit, you wouldn’t want to be stranded in an unfamiliar destination without your essential medications. That would surely ruin any vacation. Having all your supplies in your safe travel gear will make things a much smoother experience. Be sure to also plan beforehand and make sure that the place your are visiting, if out of the country, allows the medications you need to take with you. For instance, you may find that your medication is illegal in certain countries. As for the plane itself, if you’re worried about liquids or needles making it through TSA, attaining a note from a doctor should do the trick. If you’re still unsure, take a peek at the pack smart page on the CDC website. Best of all, with all the pockets in our backpack, you won’t have to worry about where to put your health kit.





    Even if you packed toiletries in your checked bag, its always a good idea to bring a few travel size items like toothpaste, mouthwash, and facial wipes in your carry-on. Depending on the length of your flight, you might feel the need to freshen up before leaving the airport. Having these toiletries readily available in your carry-on can prevent the hassle of rummaging through your luggage and wasting precious vacation time. It’s also a good idea on the off-chance that your checked-in luggage is misplaced or lost. If you have extra toiletries in your carry-on you won’t have to worry about wasting extra money at the airport or pharmacy
