Access all of your stuff quickly using the front panels.
You never need to unpack just to find something at the bottom of your bag. Unlike most bags, the Tortuga is front-loading, instead of top-loading. Everything is organized and easy to find, just like in a suitcase.
To prevent theft, the two main compartments have lockable zippers.
For an extra layer of security, store your passport, money, and other valuables under all of your clothes in the secret, interior "Stash Pocket."
Never pay baggage fees again; the Tortuga is carry-on sized.
The strap cover (shown below) zips over the backpack's straps to prevent damage when stored on a train, plane, or bus.
When not in use, the strap cover tucks away into a discreet pocket on the bottom of the bag.
Stay comfortable with the Tortuga's padded suspension system.
Pack your bag ergonomically using the interior mesh pocket. Your backpack can feel heavier if not packed correctly, so store your heaviest items, like boots or a laptop (15.4" MacBook Pro pictured), in this pocket for maximum comfort.
Reduce shoulder strain by using the padded hip belt to distribute the backpack's weight to your hips. Airmesh back padding lets the Tortuga rest comfortably against your back while still allowing for airflow to keep you cool.
