Trekking backpack comfort for everyday travel

Trekking backpack comfort for everyday travel

The harness system was inspired by the comfort of trekking backpacks and designed to provide all-day carry support for all shapes and sizes. The premium padded shoulder straps and back panel has been carefully tested to provide maximum breathability and comfort while you’re hustling to your gate. Load lifters above the shoulders, and removable sternum straps were included for optimum weight distribution. When removed, the double-duty hip belt completely transforms into a standalone travel bag that can be worn as a hip pack or sling for exploring your destination.

Durable, water-resistant materials

Durable, water-resistant materials

This ultimate carry-on backpack is constructed with rPET, a fabric made from recycled single-use plastics. We’ve added a DWR (durable water-resistant) coating to this durable fabric to keep your valuables safe and dry while you’re on the move.

Lifetime Guarantee

We stand behind the quality of our products for their entire lifespan with our lifetime warranty. If you ever have any issues with your bag we’ll take care of it. Period.

Earth-friendly materials

rPET is just as durable as nylon and has a lower carbon footprint than both nylon and organic cotton fabrics. As a company that is continuously optimizing our supply chain to decrease the environmental impact of our products, we’re thrilled to be using a recycled material for this pack.

Production that's personal

We only work with suppliers and manufacturers that we know and trust, and whose standards are just as high as our own.

Plastic-free packaging

All Pakt products are shipped in 100% plastic-free packaging: no bubble wrap, no plastic bags, no air pillows, and no Styrofoam. Our packaging proudly bears the SeaHive seal. SeaHive helps companies replace the plastic used in their packaging with earth-friendly materials so no extra plastic lands in the ocean.

Number One Bag Forever

I'm a traveling videographer and photographer, and also super petite. I refuse to check bags, and so I was on the hunt for several years to find something that met all my travel needs: 1) It had to have a clamshell opening. As someone who spends most of her time traveling, I hate trying to dig through a top-opening bag to find my clothes. The clamshell aspect is perfect. 2) It had to be able to be used as my personal item on a plane. The great thing about this bag is that when I carry it with my Pelican 1485 Air case for camera gear, airlines never once question me. Both packs are small enough to fit under the seat in front of me. No rolling bags, no wheels. It's great. 3) It couldn't be black. Again, traveling all the time, basically everyone has a black bag. I wanted to be able to spot my bag in a sea of black bags. However, because I also end up in a lot of more professional meetings, I wanted a more professional color than a lot of colorful travel bags give you. The soft green color is perfect. 4) It had to last. And this is the real kicker. I've carried this pack for about two years now, traveling 2-3 times a month, and it still looks like a new bag. No rips, scuffs, or visible wear and tear. I shove this pack under seat after seat, throw it on a hotel floor, or toss it on tough concrete when I'm onsite shooting, and it still looks awesome. 5) It couldn't look ridiculous on my 5'1" frame. Obviously, it looks much bigger on me than it does my 5'11" husband, but I still think it looks sleek on me. The ONLY issue with it as a small person is that instead of popping up over your shoulders and behind your head like a lot of bags do, it takes up more room down by your hips/butt. This can get a little uncomfortable after 10 hours of carrying. But hey, what wouldn't be uncomfortable at that point? In my opinion, it's the perfect travel bag.

While I've only gotten to use this thing on three short trips across town, I have no major complaints, The pack should last for years to come. Though, I will say that not having PU-coated zippers for a backpack of this price Is a bit jarring🤔

FAQs

No, both the Black backpack and the Green backpack have the same materials, hardware, and finishes.

These straps are accessory straps, which are commonly mistaken for compression straps. These adjustable straps are included in order to secure all types of items to different locations on the exterior of the bag, to save space inside the bag. This is the perfect solution to piggy-back bulky jackets, tripods, and yoga mats onto your bag. 

If the straps are not securing anything and the bag is empty, the straps will easily come loose and may become unattached, as they require a certain level of tension to stay secure. When they’re not in use, simply remove them from the bag and stick them in a pocket for safekeeping. 

There are 8 attachment points to give you several options on where to secure items (on either side, or across the front of the bag), but we include just 1 pair of straps because we found that most people don’t need to attach more than one item at a time. 

If you’d like an additional pair, they're available for sale here.

The dedicated TSA pocket was designed for stashing and grabbing items you have to remove from your pockets before going through the security checkpoint at the airport. This pocket, as unassuming as it may appear, makes getting through TSA a breeze. 

Step 1 - Rather than using the plastic bins to pass your personal items through security, pull out the mesh pocket located on the padded back panel of the Pakt Travel Backpack and stow your passport, phone, keys, and wallet securely. We like to do this while waiting in line. 

Step 2 - Once through security, rather than join the scramble of travelers collecting their different belongings, you can quickly grab your bag and head to a comfortable spot to reorganize. The red label serves as a reminder to grab your laptop or anything that you had to send through the X-Ray separately.

We included an undetectable anti-theft pocket hidden in between the padded shoulder straps of the Pakt Travel Backpack. This is the perfect place to keep cash, passports, and valuables safe and hidden from sight. Lockable zipper heads on the main exterior zipper keeps items secure.

The backpack can be used as a carry-on for all major airlines, and will sometimes pass as a personal item. The bag fits perfectly in the overhead bin, and if it is not overpacked, it can fit under the seat in front of you in some major airlines.
