Outbreaker Backpack

Suitcases aren't made for city travel. Good luck dragging a heavy roller bag over cobblestone streets and up a few flights of stairs to your Airbnb.

Hiking backpacks aren't much better. They're too big to be carried on and too disorganized to work well as luggage.

You need a travel backpack that combines the best parts of suitcases and hiking bags without the drawbacks. You need a bag that packs like a suitcase and carries like a backpack.

Like a suitcase, a travel backpack is carry-on-sized, organized, and easy to access.

Travel Light

By traveling carry on only, you'll save money on baggage fees and never waste your time standing around at the baggage carousel hoping your bag shows up.

You'll just breeze through the airport and be on your way.

The Outbreaker comes in two sizes: 35L for maxing out international carry on limits and 45L for maxing out US carry on limits.

Stay Organized

A front-loading bag opens like a suitcase so you can organize your stuff and quickly grab whatever you need.

A travel backpack is comfortable and durable, like a hiking backpack.

Save Your Shoulders

Since you're carrying everything on your back, you need a good suspension system to manage the weight. The Outbreaker Backpack's height-adjustable shoulder straps adjust up or down for the perfect fit on your body. The hip belt will transfer 80% of your pack's weight from your shoulders to your hips to prevent neck and shoulder strain.

Built for the Road

Your bag must be built to make it around the world. The Outbreaker Backpack's VX21 sailcloth fabric was originally developed for racing boat sails. The waterproof fabric will protect your clothes and electronics and is tough enough to never rip or tear. The best-in-class YKK zippers won't break and give you additional weather protection.

Outbreaker is great multi-destination bag

Just returned from 2 week tour of Norway and Iceland, 5 different hotels, 4 flights. Outbreaker, with packing cubes for internal organization, made it so easy to effortlessly stay on the move. We flew Icelandair, and our 45L bags (not overpacked) fit the overhead bins well. This was our first carryon only trip of this length, and I loved the ease of check in and airport departure it gave us. With the hip belts to carry most of the weight, we did not suffer any back or shoulder strain.

Comfortabe to carry a load

The shoulder straps and weight distribution are excellent, it feels lighter than it is. Even factoring in that the pack weighs 5lbs empty.

Build quality is also great.

Some of the organization could be a little better, but maybe it just doesn't fit well with my style of packing and travel.

Overall very satisfied.

It is pretty good!

This is a very well thought backpack I have used a similar one but the rib belt of this really helps in the carrying the weight! Also the fact I can adjust the straps for my height and everything.

Things could be improved: the water pocket on the side in very tough to put if the backpack is full and closed. The pocket on the ribs does not fit a iphone easily. I think iphone might be a very common device in usa. The ipad pocket fits the 12,9 ipad but the ribbon to lock it doesn’t, could be a elastic ribbon would easily solve this.

Love It!

Most comfortable backpack option I’ve worn. Fit everything I needed for a week long getaway. Compartments made a single bag to carryon easy versus a carry on and additional bag to be organized. I love the easy access pockets on the waistband although my iPhone was too large to fit. Probably my only complaint with the bag. Awesome fold flat option for laptop in TSA. Overall very impressed. It remains to be seen if it will wear well over time but the construction and fabrication looks promising.
