Tortuga helps travelers avoid the cost and hassle of checking luggage with carry-on-sized travel backpacks.
Childhood best friends Fred Perrotta and Jeremy Cohen founded Tortuga after a backpacking trip to Eastern Europe in 2010. They couldn’t find the perfect travel backpack; so they made it.
Today, our small team works remotely and lives all over the world.
Tortuga has been named to Entrepreneur Magazine’s 100 Brilliant Companies and featured in the New York Times’ Gift Guide. Our products have been named “Best Carry On Travel Bag” by the Wirecutter and “Best Carry-On Bag” by Carryology.
