What's Different?

The chart above compares two very different backpacks. The Tortuga Travel Backpack is the newest and most advanced bag we've ever made.

The Travel Backpack is sized to maximize carry on space on international airlines (40L), not just US airlines (45L). You'll never have to worry if your bag will fit in the overhead bin, even if you're flying on international and budget airlines.

You'll also find the Travel Backpack to be more comfortable than the Setout because of its height-adjustable suspension system. The shoulder straps move up and down to perfectly fit your torso.

Finally, you can stop checking for weather updates. The Travel Backpack is made of SHELL200, a recycled sailcloth that is more durable and completely waterproof. The YKK zippers are also water-resistant.

What's the Same?

All Tortuga backpacks share a few important features. Like every Tortuga bag, the Travel Backpack is:

  • Carry-on-sized
  • Easy to pack
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Built to last
