I have the V2 45L model. This bag has great features, exactly what it needs. I actually only noticed the reflective zipper pulls by chance the other morning. Fabulous detail for sure. It is built well, and solid. I am partnering this with some packing cubes for my upcoming travels. I'm looking forward to sharing my travel experience happening soon.


Well made not flashy and feels durable. Well thought design.

Amazing design!


Love it


They are not completely waterproof, but the materials have been treated with a PFC-free DWR (durable water-resistant) coating.

Yes! Both the 35L and 45L Travel Backpack will fit easily in the overhead compartment on most planes.

The 35L Travel Backpack is a soft sided bag, and it will fit under the seat if it is lightly packed.

Our signature carry-on backpacks provide between 35 and 45 liters of storage.

In real-world terms, that's enough for at least 3-5 days in a 35L, and generally over 5 days with a 45L.

Creating a product that will last a lifetime using ethical labor and recycled materials costs a lot. 

  • We use only high-quality materials that are also environmentally responsible; and source or design hardware that will stand up to your globe-trotting ways for years and years.
  • Standing behind what we create and sell costs. We stand behind every bag with a satisfaction and lifetime guarantee. The cheaper way to go is to sell a product with a short or non-existent refund policy.
  • Responsibly-sourced costs. We ensure we pay fair wages and only work with top notch manufacturing partners that value people and the environment the same way we do.
  • Details, details, details. You would probably be blown away (or at least extremely bored) sitting in on one of our design reviews in which we nitpick the tiniest details in an effort to make sure every thread and detail is done properly. This takes time and therefore money.
  • It may just be another product to some, but each Pakt product requires A LOT of effort to create, refine and produce. These bags are made up of between 200-300 individual components (everything from each zipper pull and label to pieces of fabric cut to be assembled) and requires over 200 steps to assemble (each step of the assembly line).

Most of our peers have a full product line with multiple bags, and there’s no way they could afford to put as much effort into each of those bags as we have with our products. We choose to grow intentionally, giving each product the time and attention required to deliver a perfect product that we could be proud of for everything that went into making it.
