Durable, water resistant materials

The exterior fabric of the Pakt Travel Backpack is rPET, a durable material that is created from recycled single-use plastic. This material is just as durable as nylon and has a lower carbon footprint than both nylon and organic cotton fabrics.

Made with the planet in mind

We chose the exterior fabric to be constructed using rPET (recycled polyethylene terephthalate), which is created from fibers that were once single-use plastics. 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.

SO EXCITED about this bag!!

I haven't had a chance to travel with this bag yet, but I will this weekend and I'm SO excited. I tried out all of the features and it's extraordinary how much thought was put into this bag. I love the added feature of a removable / wearable hip-pack too, but sadly I could not figure out a way to comfortably wear it across my chest like in the video due to the design - it just doesn't allow room for boobs. BUT it will work great as a hip-pack so that's how I'll use it! So excited to start travelling again with this bag!

My 1st Travel Backpack

As my title says, this is my first experience with a travel backpack. I can’t really say this is the greatest travel backpack, but after reading and watching a lot of blogs and vlogs respectively, I came to the conclusion that I made the right choice. During this pandemic, I tried to convert myself into a minimalist. This backpack states that.

Great Backpack!!!

I purchased the travel backpack after a lot of comparisons to other available products.
The backpack is great to use specially the size that eliminates the need for a roll-on for short trips.
The modular utility compartments are great way to separate your stuff.
I really would like to have the packing cubes to complete my experience, but they are not available for purchase.
I however went ahead and purchased packing cubes for the pakt one, and they fit well into the travel backpack.
I however was not happy with the rain flyer/ protector, it is not easy to slip over.

Hands down, this is the ultimate travel backpack!

This is our 2nd purchase from Pakt. My daughter and I love the Pakt One duffle bag so much that we decided to buy the backpack version.
The backpack has a solid build, using very high-quality materials. The finish on this backpack is also flawless. There are no defects!
Everything about the Pakt backpack is so carefully designed and intentional. The recyclable material and the non-plastic packaging adds to the awesomeness of this bag!

Well done, and thank you to Malcolm and the team for inventing this amazing product!


  • Is there any difference between the Black and Green versions?
    No, both the Black and Green versions have the same materials, hardware, and finishes.
  • Why does the bag come with two straps?
    These straps are accessory straps, which are commonly mistaken for compression straps. The accessory straps are meant to make it easy to secure all types of items to different locations on the exterior of the bag to save space inside the 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 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.
