Rolling suitcases are easy in the airport, but as a seasoned traveler, you know that when it comes to uneven streets, stairs, and long walks, they’re just not practical. Hiking backpacks are ergonomic, but the top-loading design means you have to unearth all your possessions to find something at the bottom.
Either way, when you’re traveling on budget airlines, the last thing you want is to pay $50 to check a bag that’s too big.
An ideal travel backpack combines the best features of both: the ergonomics and portability of a backpack with the obsessive organization and easy packing of a suitcase.
As a savvy traveler, you know that the best travel backpacks have three features in common:
This gives you the best features of carry on travel without all the headaches attached to it. The Tortuga Outbreaker is designed from the experiences of knowledgeable travelers like you to create a practical travel backpack.
One of the benefits of a carry on is organization. Unfortunately, the realities of carry on travel (dragging a rolling suitcase on uneven ground, for instance) quickly make frustration cancel out those benefits.
You have an organized place for everything in the Outbreaker Backpack. The main compartment is a front-loading design like a carry on, with mesh pockets perfect for toiletries and electronics. There’s a laptop sleeve in a top-loading compartment behind the main one, perfect for your laptop and tablet.
As for all those small essentials (like your passport, notebook, sunglasses, and phone) there’s another compartment in front of the main one with pockets for everything. All of it is protected by lockable YKK zippers to give you peace of mind.
The Tortuga Outbreaker is available in 35L and 45L. The 35L is a maximum-sized international carry on. The 45L is a maximum-sized US carry on. Always check with your airline's carry on rules before flying.
"[T]he Tortuga Outbreaker struck the best balance between a hiking backpack and an excellent piece of luggage." -The Wirecutter
The best part of a hiking backpack is the suspension system, which distributes weight in your hips and legs instead of your shoulders. The Tortuga Outbreaker uses that suspension system with padded load lifters in the hip belt. That way, the shoulder straps won’t tire out your back.
All of it is protected by water-resistant fabric with muted colors and a low profile. That way, the backpack blends in with other commuter bags so you can travel without looking like a tourist.
Travel is a joy that never gets old. Packing for your trip should never dampen it. With the Tortuga Outbreaker, you’re always ready to go wherever your wanderlust may lead you next. All you have to do is make a packing list, gather your things, and hit the road.Read less
