Carry On Luggage Backpacks
Carry on luggage is the primary bag you bring onboard a plane and store in the overhead bin. Carry on luggage may also be called cabin luggage or hand luggage, especially in Europe. Most people carry a suitcase, backpack, or duffel bag as their carry on.
Checked hardside luggage and elaborate luggage sets are not made for travelers with places to go and people to see.
First, airlines charge you $60 to check your luggage roundtrip.
Then, you have to wait for the plane to unload and deliver your luggage to baggage claim.
Finally, you may be one of the unlucky travelers whose bag is lost or delayed.
With Tortuga carry on luggage, once you land and deplane you are ready to head on your adventure. You never have to be the unfortunately soul talking to an airline representative at baggage claim.
With our comfortable travel backpacks, you can easily go up staircases, navigate rough streets, or jump onto a bus without any issue.
If your journey takes you to the cobblestone streets of Paris, up a flight of stairs to your Airbnb, or up and over curbs having a spinner wheel suitcase will not fare well. Especially once the wheels start to break.
You don’t have to worry about any of those situations when you have a carry on backpack. Leaving the spinner wheels behind allows you the freedom to easily travel anywhere with all of your stuff.
Spinner wheels and telescoping handles don’t just limit your freedom of movement, but they also take up 20% of your weight allowance.
The big luggage brands won’t tell you that these unnecessary features leave you less space to pack or bring souvenirs home.
You'll be carrying your travel backpack, so it must be comfortable. Hiking packs set the standard for comfort because they're meant to carry tens of pounds for an entire day of hiking. Compared to that, carrying your bag through the airport and around town should be easy.
To be as comfortable as a hiking bag, Tortuga travel bags come standard with extra padded shoulder straps, a sternum strap to help balance weight, and a weight-bearing hip belt that fits most men and women.
Bad weather is a part of travel, as much as we all want to avoid it. A water resistant bag keeps your gear and electronics safe from irreversible damage. Tortuga's bags are made with water resistant fabrics and zippers to protect your stuff.
Most thieves are not professionals. Rather they are opportunists who prey on tourists that stick out from locals.
You won’t stand out as a tourist with our discreet styling and colors to keep you blending in.
Tortuga makes its carry on bags with anti-theft features such as lockable zippers that work with TSA-approved locks.
Your laptop and tablet are an essential part of traveling for business or commuting for pleasure. You don't want to risk your expensive technical gear before an important presentation or your long 18-hour flight home because of the wrong laptop bag.
At Tortuga, we have designed padded, fleece-lined divider sleeves for your laptop and tablet so your electronics make it home safely from many business trips.
The wrong luggage can ruin your trip. Traveling with heavy spinner wheel suitcases and disorganized hiking backpacks proved that to us.
That is why our backpacks are made by travelers for travelers. All of our backpacks are:
