👍 Reasons to Buy

  • The front-loading opening makes the main compartment easier to access and organize with packing cubes.
  • The backpack straps can be stashed inside the pack. This is quite handy when you need to put your bag in tight places and you don't want the straps getting in the way.
  • Functional organization all over the bag that will keep your things in order as you travel.

🤔 Things to Consider

  • The frame sheet can be a little thin and could use some more thickness to add more structural integrity to the bag.
  • Tends to sag off when the bag is fully loaded.
  • Some reviewers pointed out that the straps may become uncomfortable later on.

💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "I like the open main compartment as it provides more flexibility in the use of the packing cube. It has enough compartmentalization for admin items in the front. One advantage I have not seen documented is that you can pack 2-3 long pants in a folding/packing board and slide read more about review stating Taking this around the world into the long back pocket with minimal impact on the main compartment."
  • "Great quality, lots of pockets, and just the right size. While others were required to place their carry-ons in the belly of a smaller aircraft, we were allowed to take the Tortuga on-board. Very satisfied with the product."
