Our Thoughts

The Torguta 35L is a great bag that is built extremely well and keeps your stuff safe and secure.

The Tortuga 35L has been my one bag of choice for a couple of years now, and I have no complaints. I've traveled for both business and pleasure with this bag, and it has never let me down.

One huge bonus is the Tortuga has loads of pockets for all your stuff. There is a nice amount of room for everything you need. Personally, once the trip starts, my organization goes out the window. With the Outbreaker the pack is divided into two main compartments so at least I can keep my rolls of socks from getting into my toiletry bags.

The carry-on is a little heavy but feels very durable. When full, the bag is hefty, but I think that is more a reflection of efficiently you can pack the bag versus the bag itself.

The more rounded edges a bag has, the harder it is to pack efficiently. You always end up with square corners of things hitting up against the rounded parts and leaving space. Sometimes you can stuff that space with various odds and ends but with packing cubes that becomes difficult. Since the Outbreaker has square corners that wasted space isn't a problem.

Since this is my current one bag of choice, I can highly recommend it.

πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Truly comfortable harness system.
  • Top notch internal organization.
  • Possesses a height adjustment system that can give you the perfect fit.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Quite expensive but it would last for a very long time considering how well it is built.
  • Hip belt might be too long but this is removable.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "I believe Tortuga does not give this bag the credit it really deserves. This is the most intelligent mix travel bag I have ever seen."
  • "Overall, the bag works wonders and all of the different pockets help me stay organized."
