Outbreaker Backpack

The fully-featured carry on for organized travelers


Size Guide
Free Shipping in the USA
No Hassle Return Policy

Named "Best Carry On Travel Bag" by The Wirecutter.

Rolling suitcases aren’t up to the demands of city travel, and hiking backpacks are disorganized.

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.

You have an organized place for everything in the Outbreaker Backpack. Feel free to overpack, because it will feel comfortable no matter how much you’re carrying.

Carry On Sized

Bring everything you need without checking a bag. The Outbreaker backpack qualifies as a carry on so you can travel like a pro.

Organization Galore

There’s a place for everything: pockets for socks, pockets for cords, pockets for water bottles. Take a tour of the Outbreaker’s compartments.

Save Your Shoulders

The hip belt transfers 80% of the bag’s weight to your hips, taking the strain off your shoulders. Stash your phone and boarding pass in the hip belt pockets while en route.

Fits Your Body

The height-adjustable suspension system means the Outbreaker fits you perfectly, no matter your height. Move the shoulder straps up and down to fit your torso.

Soft, sweat-wicking Ariaprene feels comfortable on your back during a long travel day.

Weather Resistant

Don’t stress about getting caught in the rain. Waterproof sailcloth — originally made for racing boats — and coated YKK zippers will protect your stuff from the elements.

Easy to Pack

The Outbreaker Backpack opens from the side, like a book, to make packing on a bed or luggage stand easier. With top loading backpacks, your stuff would be a jumbled mess.

Protect Your Electronics

Padded, fleece-lined sleeves keep your laptop, tablet, and ereader safe.

Breeze Through Security

Unzip the lie-flat laptop compartment instead of taking your computer out of the bag at TSA.

Stash a water bottle (or two) in the side pockets. When the water bottle pockets are empty, they lie flat against the bag for a sleek look.

Protect Your Stuff

Use the lockable zippers to keep the contents of your bag safe from pickpockets.

Behind the Design

We aren’t satisfied with “good” — we want to make the best travel backpack possible. So in 2016, we surveyed our customers to see how we could improve on our existing designs. Most people told us that size, organization, and ergonomics were most important.

The Outbreaker is the perfect bag for travelers who want something incredibly comfortable, obsessively organized, and carry on sized.
