What is a Women’s Travel Bag?

Women's travel bags are designed for a female’s body by being lightweight and easy to carry. They are spacious enough to easily store all essentials while also being durable. 

Travel Bags for Women

Carry on luggage bags are designed with a ‘one size fits all’ approach that may be too broad across the shoulders or too bulky for most female travelers. Women’s travel bags should be built to offer the latest trending style and comfort you need while acting as a carryall for all your essential items during travel.

Ladies’ bags are notoriously difficult to shop for because it's hard to find a bag that will hold everything you need without being too bulky or too heavy. The bag may: 

  • Have limited capacity like a daypack
  • Include wheels and handles that waste space and add excess weight
  • Be too bulky for female travelers

Women’s travel backpacks are easy to fit into an overhead bin but also offer all the functionality of a standard backpack once you're out of the airport, be it for business or personal use.

Tortuga Travel Backpacks offer cabin-friendly travel bags for both men and women looking for the right mix of convenience, comfort, and style. 

  • Comfortable to carry without any strain
  • Discreetly designed to keep you and your stuff safe
  • Easy to organize and pack
  • Equipped to protect electronics

Best Women's Travel Bags by Tortuga

Travel Bags Made for Women

A common woman’s travel backpack problem is the size of the bag. Large carry ons, leather travel bags and even shoulder bags are not a great match (fit-wise) for ladies. Their bulky design and tight shoulder straps can lead to muscle aches or back problems while traveling.

Tortuga Backpack’s collection of women’s travel bags are designed for the modern female traveler thanks to the adjustable torso length and hip belts. This allows women to create the right fit for their body while still providing plenty of space for a local commute or larger travel adventures.

Keep Yourself and Your Stuff Safe

The Tortuga travel collection offers you functional bags designed to keep your belongings theft-proof while taking you from city to city without drawing attention to yourself.

The bags feature anti-theft compartments that keep your valuables safe from prying eyes while sporting a discreet design that lets you blend into the crowd while exploring your destination.

Packs Light, Lives Large

One of the most common travel concerns from women is whether you'll be able to fit everything they need into a carry on bag. Establishing that balance between traveling light and traveling right is a challenge. 

Our bags cut out unnecessary weight by removing wheels and telescoping handles, which allows us to maximize storage space for carrying makeup bags, tote bags and souvenirs. 

Organize Everything You Need

The way you organize your travel bag is as unique to you as the way you wear your hair or color your nails. Using packing cubes or building a capsule wardrobe with travel-friendly clothes that don’t wrinkle can make a huge difference in how much you can fit in your bag without going overboard. 

Whether you opt for a 30L or 40L carry on backpack, you can keep all your little things organized through our designated pockets and compartment. Our front organizer pocket takes away the anxiety of digging through your belongings in search of your passport or phone at the airport.

These bags can be used for lots of daily uses when you are not roaming the world on getaways. Our customers use our backpacks as gym bags, overnight bags, or even weekender bags for weekend trips. 

We have the compartments for it all:

  • A padded compartment for electronics including a laptop sleeve 
  • Two flat pockets for smaller items like your wallet or your boarding pass
  • A shoe compartment for travelers 
  • A water bottle holder

The Perfect Carry On for Laptops

Finding a women’s travel bag that keeps all your essential items together in one place while also squeezing a laptop into a frontload backpack can be rough. 

Depending on the size of your laptop it can add a lot of weight to a bag, Tortuga’s women’s travel bags come with padded shoulder pads and adjustable hip belts to help you travel comfortably. They are also made of water-resistant material to keep your essentials safe from those sudden rain storms while traveling. 

Our bags are also a great solution to the problem of how to keep all your electronics together in one place. It offers compartments for your laptop, protective sleeves for your tablets and even a pocket for your phone and chargers.
