πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Unique compartment system that would resemble a portable wardrobe.
  • Multiple ways to carry it as it has multiple functional handles.
  • Good craftsmanship and high weather resistance.
  • Features exterior zippered access to the compartments for convenient unpacking and packing.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • Can sag if not properly packed as it lacks a frame and structure.
  • Suboptimal laptop compartment.
  • The shoulder straps could use some more padding.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "I guess I am ruined now. I dare anybody to use this backpack and try to switch back to a basic backpack. I double dare you. Should come with a warning."
  • "As backpacks go (not duffel bags, not suitcases) this is the best I’ve ever owned. It's perfect for everyday use and I just used it as the only bag on a two-day trip and it was fine. The segmented storage and large space in the back are my favorite qualities."
  • "Just received and tested it out. I can say that this is probably the best bag Matador has put out. It can fit at least a week's worth of clothes, possibly more and the open clamshell has a lot of possibilities. The water bottle slot is also a nice touch."

Matador SEG30 Segmented Backpack

"The SEG30 Segmented Backpack. This thing is so freakin’ cool. It’s much more than a typical pack you’d buy for your normal travels. This pack is made for people that need their gear organized—And when we say organized, we mean down to every single piece of gear you need easy access to at any given moment."

Matador SEG30 Backpack Review​

"Simply put, just a home run from Matador here. This kind of applies to both packs, but I think by offering this smaller size, they can appeal to the EDC people as well as the more hardcore onebaggers that really cut their gear down, and won't ever want a pack approaching 35l or more. Even for the casual onebaggers, if you are smart about your materials and what you bring, this bag allows you to pack plenty for extended weekends or even upwards of 5 days easily. All depends on how you pack."


"Well, if you’re planning a wilderness excursion or urban adventure, you’ll not find many better allies for the trip than the Matador SEG30 Segmented Backpack which is robust, great value for money and just about as versatile as they come."

Matador SEG30 Segmented Backpack Review

"The SEG30 is an interesting concept reminiscent of what we’ve seen in the Tropicfeel Shell Travel Backpack and its wardrobe system. There’s definitely great appeal in this amount of organization for clothes. It really is like traveling with a mini version of your wardrobe at home. We dig that Matador has dabbled with this concept with the SEG30 and the larger SEG42."
