πŸ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Versatile enough to be used as your daily bag or as your weekend trip bag.
  • The tech compartment offers a lot of functional pockets which keep your things really organized.
  • Features a side pocket that is truly convenient when pulling things from the main compartment.
  • Comes with a packing cube that can help you organize things for your trip.

πŸ€” Things to Consider

  • The shoulder strap can be quite rigid and might be uncomfortable if used for long periods of time.
  • The top handle can be tough to grab if the bag is packed.

πŸ’¬ Reviewers Have Said

  • "This bag hits that sweet spot between travel carryon and daily carry bag. For minimalist travelers this means unloading your clothes and whatever else at your accommodation, roll the bag down since it's a rolltop, and use it as a daypack while sightseeing. it also worked well as a laptop bag with whatever other tech you need to carry."
  • "My three favorite features are the inner packing cube, the side handle, and the side zippers. The packing cube is of much higher quality than aftermarket cubes, and it has a handle so you can easily isolate your clothes. In fact, I have the cube packed right now waiting for my wife to give birth so when it's time to go to the hospital I'll throw it in the bag and be packed in a matter of seconds! With the side handle, it makes it super easy to carry and throw in the car and I love how it feels like a briefcase in that case. Finally, the side zippers make it super easy to access a laptop or the main compartment, and I'm looking forward to breezing through security with it next time I fly."
  • "I love the simplicity of this backpack. It comes with a great clothing compartment that slides out without having to dig for that last pair of socks at the very bottom. It has excellent well-thought-out compartments inside and even a roomy tablet / Laptop sports opening for easy access. It is water-resistant, lightweight, and I can go about 30 days abroad on this. This is the biggest on Thule's backpack series."

Thule Subterra 34L Review

"The fact that this pack works just as well as an everyday pack as it does a travel bag is, quite frankly, awesome."
