Are Tortuga products sold in stores?

Tortuga products are not sold in stores.

This enables us to give you a better customer experience with better customer service -- since we know the ins and outs of our products better than a store would -- and no retail markups. Selling online, we can continue choosing high quality materials and designing the best gear for travelers not for retailers or investors.

If you don't love your gear, you can return it unused within 30 days for a full refund excluding shipping costs. For US customers, we will even pay for the return shipping.

What is the difference between the Outbreaker Backpack and the Setout Backpack?

At $199, the Setout Backpack is a more accessible price point than the Outbreaker Backpack with just enough organization and padding. Maximize carry on requirements at the best value on the market. The Outbreaker Backpack is a fully featured carry on. It has the most organization & padding out of all of our backpacks and features pro-level materials like waterproof sailcloth and an advanced height-adjustable suspensions system.

Which of your travel backpacks will fit me?

The length of your torso is more important than your overall height when fitting a backpack. The Setout Backpack and Setout Divide fit torsos of approximately 17-19" while the 45L Outbreaker fits 16-20" torsos and the 35L Outbreaker fits 16-19" torsos.

If you're not using the hip belt (or choosing a backpack without a hip belt), torso length is not as important. It all depends how the bag feels on your body.

Which travel backpack should I buy?

There are a lot of factors that go into the ideal travel backpack for you -- your packing style, typical trip length, and type of travel. We created this guide to help you decide on the right carry on travel backpack for your needs.
