You’ve just landed and can’t wait to explore. Since your luggage is too big for a day of adventure, you need something smaller and lighter to carry the essentials.
With the Setout Packable Daypack, you can carry everything you need for a day of sightseeing. Recommended by the experts at Wirecutter (the New York Times product review site) and Conde Nast Traveler, you get many of the features you love about your carry on-sized backpack in a smaller, lighter package.
When you reach for a packable daypack, you need many of the same features of a travel backpack—without carrying every item on your packing list.
If you’ve shopped around daypacks before, many sacrifice capacity for a lightweight design. With the Setout Packable Daypack, you get the best of both worlds. It gives you just enough room to pack your essential gear, like a jacket, water bottle, guidebook, notebook, and laptop.
You get a main compartment that lets you carry larger everyday essentials. You also get an easy-to-access front zippered pocket for all the little things you can’t live without, like your credit cards, headphones, and sunglasses. Throw your water bottle in the water bottle pocket and you’re ready for wherever your wanderlust takes you.
The compartments are protected by lockable YKK zippers so that you can travel with ease. Plus, with waterproof ripstop nylon in muted colors, your bag blends in with commuter backpacks—the better to avoid thieves and enjoy the sights from a local’s eye.
When you’re done, your daypack gets out of the way. It folds down into its own front pocket so you can easily stow it in your travel backpack.
A daypack doesn’t need all the features of a carry on-sized backpack, but for seasoned travelers, features like ergonomics and comfort are non-negotiable.
The padded, mesh shoulder straps and back panel will breathe and keep you cool even on a hot day. The padding will keep your daypack feeling light, even if your day trip requires a bit more gear than usual. And with the lightweight design, you’ll never feel weighed down by what you packed.
Why travel with a bag that slows you down? When there’s a whole world waiting outside your hotel room door, daypacks should be a tool to help you enjoy it, not an annoyance holding you back.
The Tortuga Setout packable daypack is a backpack made from the lived experiences of real travelers like you. Our founders, Fred and Jeremy, experienced firsthand the struggle of traveling with the wrong bag—the shoulder ripped off Jeremy’s bag, and Fred’s backpack had to be checked.
They couldn’t find a packable backpack that met the needs of real travelers. So, they decided to make one. The Tortuga Setout packable daypack is designed to be the daypack you never think twice about. Instead, you get to enjoy the day.
Childhood best friends Fred Perrotta and Jeremy Cohen founded Tortuga in 2010. A backpacking trip to Eastern Europe inspired us to “scratch our own itch.” We couldn’t find the perfect travel backpack; so we made it.
