Travel backpacks for your next big trip

🎒 Pack everything you need for your next big trip.

Tortuga was founded by two childhood best friends—Fred and Jeremy—after a backpacking trip to Europe in 2009.

We flew into Frankfurt then visited Prague, Budapest, and Hvar, Croatia. The trip was a blast, but our luggage was a disaster. Jeremy’s shoulder strap ripped off on the first day, and Fred’s giant hiking backpack was a disorganized mess. That trip taught us how hard it is to travel with the wrong gear.

We couldn’t find the perfect travel backpack. So we made it.

The Outbreaker Backpack combines the organization and accessibility of a suitcase with the comfort and flexibility of a hiking pack.

Hi Everyone,

I'm Fred, the co-founder of Tortuga. TM asked me to post here even though we've been making bags for 12(!) years now. We have weathered the pandemic and are ready to join you in the coming travel boom.

Later this summer, we'll be releasing our new V4 line of backpacks based on 5+ years of customer feedback. I'll post the new bags when they've launched.

For now, let me know if you have any questions about Tortuga, packing, clothes, gear, or running a remote and bootstrapped business.

Great products Fred. I haven't been on a trip in 4 years that I haven't brought at least 1 bag with me. The daypack is my personal favorite. I highly recommend them to my clients.

I have been a BIG fan of Tortuga backpacks for the last 5 years. I am constantly singing your praises. I recommend Tortuga backpacks to anyone and everyone. If I could get a Setout and Outbreaker combination backpack, it'd be a game changer
