The Outbreaker backpack from Tortuga is a solid 1-bag travel pick. I personally prefer the less bulky (and more spacious) experience of traveling with the Tortuga Setout, so be sure to check out that bag too. This Outbreaker, however, has quite a bit more padding and protection around the entire bag, so if you know you’ll have delicate stuff inside you may prefer this one.
This bag also boasts excellent padding and comfort. The straps, lumbar support and hip straps on this bag are killer. They do, however, contribute to the bulk of the bag.
This bag also has a ton of pockets and organization throughout. Tortuga do a good job of creating a single pocket for your tech stuff.
And finally, it’s really well built. The water resistant fabric, the zippers, the stitching and shoulder harness, all of it is built strong.
If you need a massive bag with good protection for your belongings, then this is a solid option because it’s got the comfortable straps and plenty of pockets.
