A clever new backpack, that comes with a handy cabin bag on wheels, from popular furniture retailer Ikea has sent Australian shoppers into a frenzy – and the good news is, it’ll set you back just $99.

But, for those looking to get their hands on the Förenkla carry-on, you’ll have to be quick as excitement over the travel backpack reached fever pitch this week when travel website Escape ran an article singing its praises.

“The Förenkla carry-on solves the great backpack versus wheelie bag debate by being both,” Rebecca Andrews wrote in the article. “Despite not having 360-degree swivel wheels, it’s a total champ and officially I am ditching my Samsonite hard case carry-on for this one.”

So what’s all the fuss? The Förenkla contains one small backpack that you can easily attach to the outside of the wheeled cabin bag.

Meanwhile, the included smaller backpack has many desirable features, including a laptop compartment and an extra outer pocket where you can store personal items, like tickets or a passport, ensuring they are organised and close at hand.

There’s also two inner mesh compartments that are great for keeping cables and charges in order.
