Travel Backpacks (V2)
There are no products in this view.
Suitcases are made for airports and offices, not cities. Try dragging one over the cobblestone streets of Paris or up a flight of stairs to the apartment you rented.
Hiking backpacks don't work well either. Every "backpacker" carries one, but these bags are too big to be carried onto flights and don't keep your stuff organized.
Our travel backpacks are made for travelers, by travelers. In 2009, we took a backpacking trip to Eastern Europe. The trip was fun, but our bags were a disaster. Fred's was made for hiking, and Jeremy's broke on the first day.
We couldn't find the perfect travel backpack. So we made it. Tortuga Backpacks combine the best features of backpacks and of suitcases into a line of carry-on-sized travel backpacks. Travel for as long as you want without the hassle or the cost of checking your luggage.
The Tortuga Travel Backpack is ideal for trips from one week to one year. The Tortuga maximizes how much you can bring without having to check your bag. The Tortuga Air is smaller and lighter. The Air is made for weekend getaways and short business trips. The Tortuga Daypack carries everything you need for a day of sightseeing and packs into the Tortuga or the Tortuga Air when you don't need it.
