What should I pack in a carry-on backpack?

Pack That Back Tip: You've found a great North Face backpack for your trip and now you must pack it properly. Is it your personal item? You have less room in there than in your carry-on luggage, but if the backpack is your main bag, then you will have more space for ...

  • Cell phone—and not just the phone itself, but do not forget the charger!
  • Taking the laptop on your business trip, or worse, on vacation? Take the adapter, mouse, memory keys, and any other computer accessories to accompany it.
  • Pack what you really need for your first 24 hours -- change of clothes, sunglasses, swimsuit, itinerary, identification, important phone numbers, valuables. Don't forget the camera!
