Flimsy Shoulder Straps
Most of your backpack's weight hangs from your shoulders.
It makes sense to craft comfortable, thickly padded shoulder straps with a wide surface area to dispense your backpack’s weight.
Unfortunately, Incase designed the EO with flimsy, thin “padded shoulder straps" that are likely to leave your shoulders aching.
Choose shoulder straps crafted from injection-molded foam—the same foam in your favorite running sneakers. Choose straps with robust padding. Choose straps that conform to your body over time.
That’s what you’ll find in the Setout Divide Backpack.
We know the feeling of a pounding, lingering headache from a heavy backpack dangling off thin shoulder straps. And we don’t think your trip needs that kind of baggage.
Missing a Hip Belt
A high-quality, padded hip belt transfers 80% of your bag’s weight to your hips, saving your shoulders from tight knots in your back.
Until you’re carrying a full backpack, you don’t realize a hip belt’s true magic to literally lift weight from your shoulders.
Incase EO’s designers didn’t add in a magical hip belt. If you use the EO, your delicate shoulders will be bearing the bag's full weight.
We want you to be comfortable on your trip. That’s why the Tortuga Setout Divide has a full-weight bearing hip belt with pockets for your phone and boarding pass. So your hips carry 80% of your bag’s weight. And your shoulders are light, fancy-free, and primed for adventure.
Not Ideal for Air Travelers
The Setout Divide has a pass-through sleeve for use with a rolling suitcase, so you hook it right on the top of your rolling suitcase. Suddenly, your backpack is a good-sized personal item.
That doesn’t topple off your suitcase when you fast-walk through the airport. This small detail that makes the Setout Divide more ideal for air travelers.
The Incase EO lacks this thoughtful detail.
