Our Thoughts

The Cotopaxi Allpa is a considerable IndieGoGo success for a reason. The Cotopaxi is probably one of the most durable travel carry on the market today. The unique aspect of the bag, aside from its pretty wild child style, is the built-in packing cubes and a super protective outer covering.

Hiking Roots

Cotopaxi, a company named after a volcano, has roots in the hiking industry. Their bag is designed with mobility and durability in mind. The straps on the Allpa are comfortable and keep the center of gravity on the bag nice and comfortable.

One nice thing about the Allpa is the smooth exterior. When your moving around little pockets and straps get caught on things. Without a million pockets and there is much less of a chance to have your bag catch on things.

Bags on Bags

The Allpa has a lot of different pockets to store your stuff. With main compartments, hip belt compartments, and little compartments in between, there is going to be room for everything.

One cool feature of the Allpa is that Cotopaxi offers packages of products that come with cubes, shoe bags, and laundry bags that fit perfectly in the compartments of the bag. I think this is a great feature because I've found packing cubes that fit well in one carry-on's compartments may not fit well in another. Really stinks when two medium cubes don't fit well and you're forced to use a small one and have some dead space.

๐Ÿ‘ Reasons to Buy

  • Includes a rain cover that also helps prevent damage to the bag and adds a little extra security.
  • Comfortable should straps, hip belt, and adjustable sternum straps keep the bag comfortable.
  • It comes with a collapsible mesh laundry bag, nylon shoe bag, and a mesh water bottle sleeve.

๐Ÿค” Things to Consider

  • The laptop compartment is tight and may not fit larger laptops.
  • Lacks external pockets

๐Ÿ’ฌ Reviewers Have Said

  • "Bought this back short before Christmas last year and used it several times since...and it is a truly amazing experience to travel with just one bag, which doesn't look too big, but nonetheless is able to fit enough clothes, technical gear and other stuff for a two week trip - even in winter, when it's cold outside."
  • "Taking this bag on a three week trip to Cambodia (leaving today), and I already love it. Great for organizing my things, fits everything I need it to, and so comfortable on my back- hardly feels like I’m carrying anything. Very pleased with my purchase."
  • "This was perfect for what I was looking for: a roomy (and cute!) carry on pack with very comfortable straps, easy to organize compartments/pockets, and durably made. I wanted a pack I didn't have to wheel around, but that wouldn't put too much stress on my bad back, and the waist straps helps so much."

Review: Cotopaxi Allpa 35L Travel Pack

"I don't travel like that anymore (and, admittedly, I probably found it a lot less fun at the time), but the Allpa 35L bundle would have been perfect. Buy one now and save it for the high school or college seniors in your life. It is the perfect graduation gift for the budding world traveler."
