  6. Peak Design - Travel Backpack 45L - Black - Angle_Zoom

    SKU: 6337950
    Top comment

    "Great backpacking backpack....Just got back from a 10 day backpacking trip through japan and Thailand. This backpack has seen the rain of Tokyo to the hard wood of a boat roaming through the ocean in Thailand. ...We both like the sleek look because it looks less touristy than most other travel backpacks. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great carry-on travel backpack."

    Product Description

    A rugged, expandable, and brilliantly accessible carry-on travel backpack driven by a simple truth: no two trips are the same. Features top, side, front and rear access via weatherproof #8 and #10 UltraZips, which can withstand decades of use thanks to their proprietary abrasion-resistant thread. Meets international carry-on size requirements, but expands to be a 45L gear-hauler and collapses to be a 35L day bag, making it unmatched for 1-bag travel. Quick-access pockets for keys, glasses, passport, etc. Hugely expandable side pockets for water bottles, tripods, and more. Padded laptop + tablet sleeves. Main cavity is divisible into 2 compartments via a zippered mesh sleeve. Tuck-away shoulder straps and hip belt. 360-degree grab handles. Cleverly concealed external carry straps. All packed within a sleek, weatherproof 100% recycled 400D nylon canvas shell with 900D bottom liner. Fair Trade Certified and 100% carbon neutral. Works seamlessly with Peak Design Packing Cubes, Camera Cubes, and Pouches, sold separately. Organize clothes, shoes, toiletries, cords, adapters, and photo/video gear—from a single camera/drone to a full professional kit—which you can quickly access from the sides or rear of the bag. Comparing to the 30L? The 45L is better for: 1-bag-travel for trips 4 days and longer, More access and organization options, Trips where you need multiple jackets, pairs of shoes, or other bulky clothing, and Carrying camera gear (better compatibility with PD Camera Cubes, plus dual side access).

    "After used Everyday Backpack (which is very tight and compact), purchased the Travel Backpack 30L for this lightweight. 1) It does not have dividers (like Everyday Backpack) but uses packing cubes which Peak Design does not provide any crossing bands to fix them inside the bag. 2) Another issue, like other customers rating, the 30 L does not have side access as 45L - which, in my opinion, should have been an easy feature with an extra zipper. 3) All Peak Design backpacks need extra shoulder pad for more comfortable use....The 30L Travel Backpack is a great backpack for both onebag travel and trips to the office - it's now my only backpack."

    Product Description

    The smaller sibling of our iconic 45L Travel Backpack, the 30L is a rugged, expandable daypack ideal for shorter travel and everyday carry. A big, beautfiul rear hatch provides total access for easy packing and unpacking. An enlarged top pocket is subdivided with stretch and zip pockets for keys, glasses, passport, etc. The weatherproof #10 UltraZip can withstand decades of use thanks to its proprietary abrasion-resistant thread. Meets international carry-on size requirements in expanded (33L) and compressed (27L) form. Expansive side pockets for water bottles, tripods, and more. Padded laptop + tablet sleeves. Tuck-away shoulder straps and optional hip belt accessory. 360-degree grab handles. Cleverly concealed external carry straps. All packed within a sleek, weatherproof 100% recycled 400D nylon canvas shell with 900D bottom liner. Fair Trade Certified and 100% carbon neutral. Works seamlessly with Peak Design Packing Cubes and Pouches, sold separately. Organize clothes, shoes, toiletries, cords, adapters. Fits Peak Design Camera Cubes, but only in it's expanded form. For optimal photo gear carry, we recommend the larger 45L Travel Backpack. Comparing to the 45L? The 30L is better for: 1-bag-travel for trips 3 days and under, Day bag use (perfect for exploring, commuting, and working, in a new place, or in your hometown), and as your carry-on personal item: fits more easily under airline seats.
