    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).
